I did the 5 day yoga retreat. Fantastic location, friendly staff and well organised. Very calming space with a lovely pool and lots of fresh fruit and vegetables grown on site. I also did the kayaking and loved it. Highly recommend.

I did the 5 day yoga/wellness retreat. The experience was a perfect reset for me, the vegan/satvic meals were incredibly tasty and healthy. I particularly enjoyed the two massages and the environment was very relaxed and tranquil. As a novice the yoga classes were perfect for me, I engaged in 3 classes a day and loved the meditations in the evening. My friend who is an experienced and skilled yogi found the classes a little basic and the pace too slow for her. However, we both agreed that teachers Morgane and Vivienne were great, such beautiful authentic women. We enjoyed hanging out with the group and our impromptu bike rides in to Byron, visits to the farmers market, lighthouse and wattegos beach. The cost of this retreat seemed excellent value for money when you consider the classes, treatments and food etc!

I got home last weekend from my 5 day retreat, and am still swanning about feeling wonderful. This was the reset I needed. I am happily back in the habit of a daily yoga practice. And my appetite has remained stabilised after what felt like a good cleanse, eating the delicious food provided for every meal.. my sugar addiction is back in the bin! All this on top of enjoying the most relaxing time on my retreat, walking to the light house to watch whales galore, sunshine and swimming in the magnesium pool everyday, evenings curled up with cups of tea and my book. This was my 3rd retreat at Byron Yoga Centre, and I will be back. Thank you to all of the wonderful people living and working on site, such a kind and welcoming bunch!

I keep coming back to BYC again and again because it is such a beautiful holistic experience.

Yoga Retreat Overview

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. 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!

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 reflection.
