We like to think that our women’s only Yoga holidays in Victoria, Europe 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, and 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 free time to relax or chat with fellow guests. As icing on the cake, we also provide massages and fine wines!

We can’t wait to escape again to King Parrot Cottages near the Great Ocean Road.
This wonderful retreat venue offers the most incredible views over the Otway Ranges, and a beautiful yoga studio with plenty of space. Surrounded by greenery and bush tracks, it’s the perfect location for a total reset.
King Parrot Cottages features five individual cottages with various accommodation options. All are well-designed, spacious and super peaceful. There’s also a communal lodge including dining and kitchen area with stunning landscape views.
Our guests will stay in twin or private rooms in the main Lodge and Mannagum cottage. You have the option to request a private cottage all to yourself – subject to availability.
Set in the hinterland of Victoria’s Great Ocean Road, you will find King Parrot Cottages amongst 200 acres of tall trees and ferns. You will receive all driving directions upon booking.
Surrounded by nature, birdlife and beautiful green grounds, Kingparrot Cottages provides the ideal backdrop for a rejuvenating & restful retreat.
Besides transport to and from the venue, and an optional extra relaxation massage, we have included everything else for you in the retreat price.
Deposit of $500 required to guarantee your booking. Remaining balance 90 days prior. If booking your retreat within 90 days of the arrival date, you will be charged the full retreat price upon booking.
Our yoga and wellness retreat in Victoria’s 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, as well as Mat and Reformer Pilates with the Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute. She continuously works to evolve her yoga, Pilates & mobility knowledge, and will always encourage you to make your practice your own.
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. She has been hosting retreats since 2017 and will welcome you with open arms (and a glass of bubbles)!
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.
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:
Discover the most asked questions regarding our Otways retreat, and don’t hesitate to contact us if we’ve missed anything.
Yes. Please treat your yoga holiday as if it were a regular holiday. We work with a lot of different suppliers who all need to be paid. Therefore, highly recommend travel insurance to cover you in case of unexpected injury or illness.
No. You will have to make your own way to Kingparrot Cottages. A detailed itinerary will be provided upon booking.
Absolutely yes. In fact, many of our (recurring) retreat guests are female solo travellers. You can either book a private room if still available, or we pair you up with another guest.
All our classes are suited to all-levels, and therefore beginner friendly. We do recommend attending a few beginner classes in a studio near you, only to make your yoga retreat experience more enjoyable. It’s not a must though!
Yes, we cater for vegans and vegetarians, and can accommodation most (if not all) dietary needs.
No problem at all. We provide kombucha, teas and if you have a special request, don’t hesitate to let us know.
No. This is your yoga retreat. You do what feels right for your body & mind.
Yes. As long as we still have a twin room available, we will always pair you up with the person of your choice. You can add your friend’s name in the booking form. When in doubt, give us a call and we’ll check available spots for you.
