The 5 Day Retreat offers the possibility to really experience the benefits of a comprehensive wellness program and restore balance in key areas of your life.
With 5 days to enjoy the tranquil eco haven of Byron Yoga Retreat Centre with its heated mineral salt swimming pool, and the beautiful beaches of Byron Bay (without the weekend crowds!), you can fully immerse yourself in the retreat experience.

This package includes all your delicious vegetarian food, prepared using fresh ingredients from the organic gardens, yoga classes and wellness sessions plus two massages or treatments. You would also have time to book additional treatments or extra activities such as surfing or kayaking.

Enjoy the benefits of this 5 day wellness program, or if you have more time, consider choosing our 8 day retreat package. A wellness retreat is an essential opportunity to disconnect from the busyness and stresses of daily life and leaves you feeling refreshed, recharged and inspired to maintain healthy habits.

Retreat Program

The 5 Day Retreat has a flexible program of yoga and meditation classes plus workshops on nutrition, yogic philosophy and holistic wellness. 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 for fresh juice, there is an alignment based yoga class. The third yoga class of the day at 4pm 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 4pm 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!

The 5 Day Retreat offers guests the chance to benefit from the specially designed program which balances group based workshops and yoga classes with free time and self refection. You have time to immerse yourself in the relaxing retreat experience and also to integrate your learning and take away valuable tools to incorporate healthy habits into your daily life.
