An important aspect to the health giving benefits of the retreat are the nourishing plant based meals of fresh, seasonal food sourced where possible from the onsite organic gardens. Due to popular demand we have now included a garden tour and a cooking demonstration in the program.
The daily schedule starts with an early morning flow yoga class and during the retreat there is an option of a walk to the famous Byron Bay lighthouse. After breakfast you will have the main yoga and wellness workshop of the day and, following a short break before an alignment based yoga class. The third yoga class of the day at 4.30pm is always a deeply relaxing session of either Yin or Restorative yoga. All classes are optional but by committing to the full program you more likely to build the skills to continue a home practice.
Each day there is free time between lunch and the 4.30pm class, inviting you to enjoy the pool, visit the beach or explore the town (there are complimentary bicycles you can use for the 10 minute ride). This is also the time to utilise the two rejuvenating treatments included in your package – you can always choose to book an additional massage at your own cost and make this a daily event!
