Retreat Description

This is a very special retreat designed to help you to develop an overall wellness program, which you can integrate into your life. We’ll teach you practical approaches to common issues such as stress and weight management through healthy eating and a yoga program which includes not just the physical postures but breathing, meditation and special relaxation techniques.

Our nutritionally balanced menu, combined with yoga, will naturally detox the body leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. The special diet is based on nutrient-rich super foods, which will help to detoxify the body while giving you energy. Through diet, yoga, meditation and breathing techniques we will give you the tools required to naturally regulate the hormones in the body and reduce strain on the adrenal system.

Our retreats are suitable for people of all levels of yoga experience from beginners right through to long time yogis. Variations of poses are offered and there is always the option to rest if necessary.

Most of all we aim to teach you healthy lifestyle modifications, which will be sustainable in your everyday life.

Activities

This retreat is all about meeting your individual needs, so we encourage you to fill your days with as many or as little activities as you like.

Although there are many options there’s no need to rush, everything has been scheduled so that you can enjoy all the activities with enough time to relax and rejuvenate.

Reconnect with nature on a walk through the lush rainforest that leads to the famous Byron Bay lighthouse.  If you like native wildlife this is something you won’t want to miss, because you might see wallabies, dolphins, whales and a number of birds.

There are a host of activities to indulge in with other retreat members, or by yourself.  It’s a lovely walk or short cycle to Byron Beach where you can take time out to swim, sunbathe or watch the sand artist create his giant swirls and peace signs.  You can go under the water and scuba dive around Julian Rocks to look for turtles, cuttlefish, white spotted eagle rays and sharks, or watch the water at dusk while dancing to the local drummers; the beats reverberate right through your chest! The town also boasts great cafes, clothes shops, trinkets, jewelry, and if you’re lucky you may see the local llama being led around town by his eccentric keeper.


Cuisine

A cleansing and rejuvenating menu has been specially designed for our retreat guests by our nutrition expert Liz Dene. It includes an apple cider vinegar cleanse with each meal and a focus on raw food where appropriate.

The menu is nutritionally balanced and prepared according to the sattvic principles of the delicious vegetarian food served at Byron Yoga. Tea, fruit and nuts are available from 6 am to 6.30 am each morning and tea, snacks and nuts between 10 am and 12 noon each day.

The dining area is a beautiful light filled space to enjoy socialising over delicious cuisine.
Please advise if you have any particular dietary restrictions when you book your place on the retreat.

Treatments

A highlight of your stay will be the luxurious, relaxing and cleansing treatments.  All you need to do here is layback and relax, while the therapists work their magic amongst the lush tropical gardens.

One treatment is included in your retreat. Options for extra treatments are available such as a full body massage, as well as other options including relfexology, shiatsu massage, Ayurvedic massage, cranio-sacral therapy.
