Selecting the 8 Day Retreat program will give you the benefit of a full week in magical Byron Bay to unwind, recharge and develop  healthy habits.

You will enjoy the full range of retreat sessions and have the time to integrate your learning. With the option of up to three yoga classes each day, a comprehensive introduction to meditation and pranayama (breathing exercises), you will have the tools to establish practices to continue at home.

A highlight for many guests is the amazing nourishing food. Much of the produce comes direct from the onsite organic gardens and as part of the the 8 Day Retreat, you get to pick the fresh ingredients for a cooking demonstration.

Another major benefit of the 8 Day Retreat is that you receive three complimentary treatments included in your package. You can choose from a tempting range of different styles of massage and beauty treatments. All our therapists are exceptionally experienced and have that special healing touch.

Byron Bay has long been synonymous with healing and wellbeing and Byron Yoga Retreat Centre is ideally placed for you to tap into this healthy legacy. The tranquil eco haven is set in natural surrounds, but is just a short bike ride to town and the beautiful beaches.

On the 8 Day Retreat you will have ample time to take advantage of the complimentary bicycles and head to the beach, or explore the funky town. You may also choose to book one of the additional activities on offer such as surfing, kayaking or whale watching (see below).

The 8 Day Retreat offers the maximum value and the most potent opportunity for real and lasting change.

Retreat Program

This 8 Day Retreat is designed to help you to progress at all aspects of yoga and to develop a holistic approach to wellness through both theoretical and practical sessions.

Your day will start with either a flow yoga class suitable for all levels, beginners are welcome, or a walk to the iconic Byron Bay lighthouse. You will be ready to enjoy the hearty breakfast that offers a variety of tasty options. Although the meals are plant based (always with vegan and gluten-free options) we do also (at a small cost) offer eggs for breakfast.

The morning and evening wellness sessions take a practical approach to imparting nutritional advice and the wisdom of yogic philosophy. They are also structured to successfully guide you to build a home practice in yoga, meditation and relaxation techniques such as breathing exercises (pranayama).

To help you establish and deepen your yoga practice there is the option of a second alignment based yoga class after the morning fresh juice break, plus at the afternoon yoga session you can sink into a deep state of relaxation during the Restorative or Yin Yoga class.

The time between lunch and 4:30pm is yours to enjoy. Fill it with a massage, a swim in the 20 meter mineral salt pool (solar heated in winter) or a trip to the beach – or maybe choose to while away the hours with a good book in one of the comfortable reading nooks, journal your experience or connect to the like minded group participants.

The 8 Day Retreat program allows you the time and space to reassess your life balance and take steps for genuine change. The combination of our delicious nutritionally balanced menu, the yoga and meditation along with the wellness focused sessions and three complimentary treatments will naturally re-balance your mind, body and spirit leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

I feel inspired and re-focussed after spending time at the incredible Byron Yoga Centre. I have learnt so much. I feel completely relaxed and rejuvenated. Coming was the right decision for me and I hope many others yet to experience this too. Katherine
