Yoga Retreats

Yoga, great food, laughter and relaxation

A Yoga retreat offer you a break from the day to day. Each retreat is an opportunity to step away from life’s busyness.

A time for you to choose rest over stress. For exploring the senses and what it feels like to truly rest. 

In partnership with Dawn McKiernan, our next yoga retreat takes us to Karma Kinglake for a 3-day, 2 night rejuvenating Winter retreat.

We give ourselves the gift of deep rest and self care nestled amongst the gums.

You’ll walk away lighter in spirit, with better sleep, more motivated and with effective and proven tools to nourish you in everyday life.
