The signature 3 Day Weekend Retreat offers a relaxing break in beautiful Byron Bay with time to reconnect and focus on your wellbeing.
Allow the tranquillity of the Byron Yoga Retreat Centre to help you re-energize as you relax by the heated 20 metre mineral salt swimming pool. Tap into the magical healing qualities of Byron Bay with a dip in the ocean or a walk on the beach.

Enjoy delicious nourishing food, yoga classes suitable for all levels (beginners welcome) and sessions designed to impart fundamental guidance to increase you mind / body wellness.

 

All guests on the 3 Day Weekend Retreat are treated to a massage as part of the all-inclusive package. You could choose to book this on your arrival day – and maybe pay for an extra massage later in the weekend! There are also options for additional activities, but on the 3 Day Retreat many guests choose not to leave the tranquil compound of Byron Yoga Retreat Centre!

If you have more time we suggest you consider the 5 Day or 8 Day programs to really delve into the retreat experience, explore Byron Bay and make lasting changes. The 3 Day Retreat is a well thought out program of yoga classes, wellness sessions and free time, designed to promote the utmost opportunity to reap the benefits of a weekend break.

Retreat Program

The program sessions run from 3pm on the Friday afternoon to 3pm Sunday. However, you are welcome to arrive anytime on the Friday, to book in for lunch and you can also continue to enjoy the facilities after the closing session on Sunday. Revel in the therapeutic mineral salt pool (the 20 meter pool is heated in winter), or maybe head to the beach or into town. From 2pm you can meet your retreat host and have access to your room.

The retreat begins on Friday afternoon with an opening circle where you get to know your fellow retreat guests and host. After the opening circle you will be gently guided in a relaxing Restorative yoga class, where the poses use lots of comfy props and are held for a period of time which allows your body to release tension and activates the parasympathetic nervous system.

A highlight for many guests are the amazing meals. You will benefit from healthy plant based meals, with a selection of hot dishes and a salad bar. Much of the produce comes from the onsite organic garden. You can see your next meal growing!

Each day will start with either a flow yoga class or a walk to the famous Byron Bay lighthouse. There are also optional mid morning yoga classes and a workshop to impart the key elements of yoga alignment – making this retreat ideal for anyone (including beginners) looking to refine their yoga practice.

An essential component of the 3 Day Retreat are the morning and evening sessions that offer insights into the yogic traditions of meditation, philosophy and guided relaxation. You will benefit from the knowledge of experienced teachers offering practical guidelines to living a healthier, happier and more fulfilling life.

Enjoy and benefit from the sessions, but also take away valuable tools to incorporate increased wellness into your daily life.
