The accommodation is clean and simple, with shared rooms and access to all amenities. Retreat guests in residence are expected to be cigarette, drug and alcohol free and are asked to maintain silence (where practical) in the mornings before 9am and after 9.30pm and at ALL times in the rooms. We also ask everyone in residence to be vegetarian on site.

Cuisine

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 foods, which will help to detoxify the body while giving you energy. Through diet, yoga, meditation & breathing techniques we will give you the tools required to naturally regulate the hormones in the body and reduce strain on the adrenal system.

The menu is nutritionally balanced and prepared according to the sattvic principles of the delicious vegetarian food served at Byron Yoga. 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.

Retreat Program

The program is flexible to allow guests to tailor it to their needs and specific requirements. Typically the day will start with a yoga and meditation session or a sunrise beach walk to take pleasure in experiencing the first rays of sun on the Australian mainland.

Other scheduled options throughout the day include workshops on philosophy, nutrition and ayurveda; pranayama and meditation sessions plus asana classes such as restorative or our signature style Purna yoga.

A highlight for many guests in the luxurious treatment included in your 3 day package. Choose from deep tissue massage, aromatherapy, reflexology, shiatsu or a cranio-sacral treatment. If it’s too hard to choose, there is always the option for extra treatments at additional cost. Byron Bay has an eclectic array of possibilities – from crystal and sound shower healers to tarot card and aura readers!

The Yoga

The yoga is a system we call Purna, a traditional hatha style with an emphasis on correct alignment and intelligent sequencing. Purna translates as complete or whole and this is reflected in the premise that we teach not just the physical postures but also an integrated approach with breath awareness (pranayama), mediation and philosophy. With the Purna system students can work at their own level, options are given for variations and modifications allowing for beginners to practice alongside experienced students.
