Need a time-out from your to-do list and day-to-day hustle? Want to take a well-deserved break prior to the Holiday Craze? Join us for a weekend of complete relaxation at our Women’s Only Yoga Retreat in the Otway Ranges. Our retreats are down-to-earth getaways designed to help you take that much-needed break from the proverbial rat race. Expect super healthy meals, some (optional) indulgence – hello cheese and wine – and seriously good yoga & Pilates.

Dates: 15 – 17 December 2023

Above dates don’t suit? Join one of our other yoga retreats instead.


We like to think that our women’s only Yoga holidays in Victoria, Greece and Bali bring you the best of both worlds: a heap of wellness combined with a pinch of indulgence. Our aim is to help you rest and relax so you can be the best version of yourself.

In today’s goal-oriented society it’s not always easy to find the time to care for your wellbeing. Yet, slowing down, eating healthy foods, connecting with (new-found) friends, as well as movement and meditation are crucial for a healthy body and a happy mind.

We have crafted a clever itinerary for you with the perfect balance between energising yoga flows and restful meditation sessions. In between the nourishing and delicious meals – all cooked from scratch by your private chef – there’s ample time for relaxation and/or chats with fellow guests.

Our Yoga and Wellness Retreat in the Otway Ranges will be hosted by our founder Sabijn Linssen (Sab!). She is a fully certified Yoga and Pilates instructor and a huge advocate of living a balanced life. Sab has successfully completed a 200-hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training and a 60-hour Yin Training with two renowned yoga schools, and Mat and Reformer Pilates with the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute.

yoga retreat host Sab
your host for the weekend: Sab

Her favourite part of being a retreat host is the ability to connect likeminded women, help them practice yoga in a down-to-earth environment, and swap stories at the dinner table whilst sharing delicious food and wine.


Sab’s yoga and Pilates classes are catered to all-levels. Whereas it’s not mandatory to have practiced yoga or Pilates prior to attending one of our retreats, we do recommend having done a few classes to enhance your retreat experience. Expect Vinyasa Flows that are creatively sequenced with adjustments given to all levels, and Yin and Nidra sessions to provide deep rest and relaxation. Pilates classes are designed to strengthen those all important muscles that will help you boost your yoga practice.

Classes are creatively sequenced and down-to-earth, with an element of fun core strengthening and booty building movements. The goal is not to create that peachy behind, but to help support your lower back and spine in your day to day life. The important thing to remember is to take everything at your own pace, and Sab will encourage you to rest when you need to, and challenge yourself only if you want to.


We understand life can get in the way of your retreat experiences, and we ask that you familiarise yourself with our full terms and conditions. As a quick guide:

  • Deposit is non-refundable unless we can find a replacement for you.
  • Any cancellations made within 60 days of the retreat means you will forfeit your ticket and any fees paid.


The 2023 Bali retreat was the third I’ve done with Retreat Here. I’ve another three more booked across the next 12 months. Sab is unpretentious and welcoming, with all levels of yoga accommodated. The catering is always amazing, regardless of which venue we are at. From the Victorian bush, to Bali beaches, and even a city -day retreat, there’s a destination for everyone. I’ve made great friendships through socialising, but also get to have solo time. Thanks Sab. You’re my go-to for yoga retreats.

Back from a totally relaxing retreat in Bali with Retreat Here. The venue was amazing. The food was delicious and of course there were the cocktails! Sab’s daily yoga sessions were varied and fun. And I made a group of new friends. Highly recommend!

It’s all about Balance… Be prepared to relax and enjoy!! Thank you to our beautiful Sab for the most blissful yoga retreat in Bali. Sab provides high quality yoga catered to the mood and mindset of her guests for all varied levels & Pilates uplifting (literally my butt) & invigorating. The carefully planned schedule was absolutely perfect allowing plenty of YOU time whether it be massages by the pool or a bintang, reading a book in peace or cocktails with plenty of laughter, adventuring out or chilling with the girls. The venue was perfect, our host/staff incredibly accommodating, the plant based food exquisite & plentiful and the friendships made with my fellow yogis memorable and life lasting. What an amazing group of incredible women to experience this beautiful adventure together. To take time out just for me was one of the best decisions I’ve made & with Sab’s support, guidance & making this all about you, I felt peace & a clearer mindset. It helped me feel relaxed, refreshed rebalanced & reinvigorating. This is my 3rd Retreat with Sab & Retreat Here. I can’t highly recommend her enough. With the care & thought she puts into her retreats & how she has bought such a positive change into my life. Thank you Sab for helping me find my Zen & some much needed ME time, I can’t wait for Greece 2024 🙏

Retreat Here is my go to recommendation for yoga retreats. I have returned from an amazing time at the inaugural Bali retreat which was held in Uluwatu. Sab brought the most fabulous group of women together for the week which consisted of lots of conversations by the pool, daily yoga, pilates, massages, gorgeous food, cocktails and plenty of laughter.As usual, the classes were balanced and well paced for a range of levels. The accommodation was stunning and I returned feeling relaxed with some fantastic new relationships that have continued beyond the retreat.If you have any concerns as a solo traveller, there is absolutely nothing to worry about. Sab is welcoming, warm and always manages to create the perfect environment for everyone to thrive and get what they need from the retreat.

This would have to be one of those experiences that I would highly recommend. It was beautifully organised with an amazing yoga instructor Sab. The Venu in the Otways was simply pure bliss. We had yoga before dinner on the day you arrived. The next day we practice more yoga in the morning before breakfast and a simply relaxing session before dinner at night. The rest was your time to relax, unwind and simply do what you want to do. It's you retreat! The private Chef cooked up delicious Vegan flavoursome meals that were presented beautifully. This retreat is a excellent way to unwind, relax, detox, meet new people and take up a great practice, yoga. If you are a wanting to to try something new like yoga or love yoga I highly recommend Sab @retreathere. You will not be disappointed.

Sab is a wonderfully vibrant and humble host who truly goes out of her way to make each of her retreat guests feel comfortable, relaxed and connected to their own intentions and desired from the experience. With well thought out yoga sequences and sessions integrated into the retreat, she ensures that each of her guests is grounded and benefits holistically from all the aspects of yoga - including relaxing yin yoga, beautiful morning flows, deeply relaxing yoga nidra and opportunities to explore different methods of asana and mindfulness. This retreat is for anyone that loves yoga (and amazing food/wine)! But also for those who may be new to the practice, as she skillfully guides and facilitates connection to the self and your own experience of each asana/flow. Sab thoughtfully holds space for each of her retreat guests, encouraging true self love and personal time through the abundance of opportunities to connect meaningfully with others, indulge in delicious and nutritious meals, giggle over a glass of bubbles, but also time to just be (however that looks for each of us), with plenty of space for you time. Her enthusiastic and encouraging nature means there is no pressure or expectations, other than making the most of this time for yourself! I truly recommend this retreat to anyone seeking some time away from their busy lives to just be, connect with other wonderful women, find embodiment through yoga and relaxation at its best! Thanks so much Sab, I will definitely be coming to your retreats again! xox

I have been on multiple retreats now through Retreat Here and will continue to do so as each retreat is fantastic - they are thoughtfully scheduled, with a great balance between unscheduled time, classes and group socialisation time. Sab is genuine and welcoming and you can easily attend solo, knowing that the other attendees are going to be like minded and the company enjoyable.The most recent retreat held down in the Mornington Peninsula was a delight. The venue was outstanding and Sab's classes catered to all levels of proficiency, as always. The included meals were a highlight, as was the location.I highly recommend Retreat Here if you are looking for an extremely well run yoga escape.

Had a fabulous time at this women's only yoga retreat. The food was delicious, the accommodation and surrounds beautiful and the yoga restoring and energising. Oh, and the delicious wine and cocktail making class were good too. Sab sets a really lovely vibe - the whole weekend felt both relaxed and decadent. Have already booked the next one! Highly recommend.

Sab (The Founder) was welcoming, knowledgeable and so much fun to retreat with. The food and wine/ cocktails were amazing and everyone was so impressed with the balance between wellness and having cheeky fun. We had freedom to explore the area / alone time / laughs together at the dinner table and structured well thought out yoga classes that was ultimately body healing and relaxing.

What can I say, Sab is amazing!! From the moment we arrived at Cheeky Fox Retreat we were able to switch off and relax. Our yoga sessions were tailored to the level of the group, with options to advance if the individual needed. The food was amazing, so full of flavor and yummy! Thank you Sab, we will be back!

I had the most wonderful time at this retreat! Sab is extremely organised and caring, really made the weekend feel special and a space to switch off. I highly recommend this retreat and look forward to attending another in the future. Also, the food was divine!!!
This would have to be one of those experiences that I would highly and confidently recommend. It was tastefully organised with an amazing yoga instructor Sabin, and daily yoga sessions indoor and outdoor, complimented with great venue, The Cheeky Fox retreat. A beautiful house in the Yarra Valley, daily in house chefs putting together such flavoursome meals, healthy and presented beautifully. Great activities were planned for each day, life drawing session, winery visits and lunches. Great way to unwind, relax, detox, meet new people and take up a great practice, yoga. If you are a foodie, wine lover and wanting to to try something new like yoga or love yoga I highly recommend @retreathere.
