Relax, rejuvenate and revitalise. Let the beautiful beaches and uniquely chilled out atmosphere of Byron Bay calm your mind and lighten your spirit. Allow the tranquility of the Byron Yoga Retreat Centre help you to reenergise as you relax by the heated 20m mineral salt swimming pool, enjoy a yoga class, join a wellness session or indulge in a therapeutic treatment.

You will start each day with the option of an early morning yoga class, a walk a beach meditation and swim in the ocean – or you can choose to stay in bed! The 3 day weekend retreat offers participants a flexible program of yoga classes, individual treatments, meditation and pranayama, plus workshops on nutrition, yogic philosophy and holistic wellness. For registered yoga teachers, this retreat more than meets the required 12 points for Yoga Australia’s annual CPD policy for its members.

However you are welcome to arrive anytime on the Friday, leave your bags at reception. You can use the pool, go to the beach or wander into town. Just let us know if you would like lunch that day.

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), meditation 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.
