RETREAT ITINERARY AND WHAT TO EXPECT

Our boutique yoga retreat in the Yarra Valley, Victoria, is very much your getaway. We’ve designed this escape to help you step back from the daily hustle, so you can enjoy a relaxing weekend filled with amazing food, yoga and connection. Your host Sab will look after you from the moment you arrive!

You will nourish your body with healthy meals prepared with love by our in-house chef.  You will move your body with morning yoga flows (or enjoy a sleep in if you prefer! Your retreat, your choice), and enjoy deep rest with yin and yoga nidra sessions.

We’ve been lucky enough to retreat here many times and we LOVE IT so much that we keep coming back.

TRAVELING SOLO?

We love solo travellers!

Most retreats have a 50/50 mix of solo guests and friends who travel together. If you are joining alone we will pair you up with another female solo guest to share a twin room. We will also introduce you to each other prior to the retreat so you can get to know each other a little better beforehand. From the moment you walk in we’ll make you feel at home. We’ll promise friendly faces and easygoing conversations.

Also, we don’t do ‘opening circles’ and we prefer it if our guests get to know each other organically – over a cuppa or glass of bubbles.
