Byron Bay Rejuvenation Yoga Retreat

A deep journey inside never felt so good, or so nourishing!

Our Byron Bay yoga retreats are held for 5 days/4 nights staying in a peaceful, natural bush sanctuary set right next to the beach. Only 15mins drive away from Ballina airport, cross the ferry over the river and there you begin your wonderful week away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Switching off from a busy lifestyle for a few days without stress or external responsibilities as well as reducing coffee, sugar and alcohol can provide a cleansing and rejuvenating experience. We are very experienced in helping you to create a balanced lifestyle while unwinding on your retreat.

Each day we come together for meditation and yoga in a lovely purpose built yoga shala exploring new aspects of yourself through yoga asana, pranayama and meditation.

Other activities include optional holistic treatments on request with Nutritional talks and more.

The retreat program is designed to come together for renewal and rejuvenation while enjoying a “holiday” atmosphere. There is plenty of free time to relax with a choice of bike riding along the cane fields, ocean or pool swimming, in house holistic treatments, remedial, lymphatic, kahuna massages, Reiki, intuitive readings and more available on request. Delicious vegetarian meals are provided each day and all dietary requirements are catered for. Complimentary wifi in all cottages is provided.

Enjoy a trip into Byron for 1/2 a day to explore the many shops and cafes at your leisure!

Perhaps a refreshing ocean swim or stroll along main beach, walk the lighthouse trail and watch for dolphins or whales! Byron offers many interesting shops and cafes to explore and enjoy the alternative and eclectic atmosphere!

With Byron Bays’ beautiful beaches and alternative health industry plus the diversity of artists, musicians, surfers, healers and yoga enthusiasts provides a perfect environment for yoga health retreats.

  • When I booked the retreat, my mindset was that I needed to focus on myself through yoga and meditation. The week has been that and so much more. The women I shared my room with have become firm friends and the time we shared talking about our life experiences, laughing and crying have bonded us. We have made a pact to go to Bali next year to do another retreat because this has been so fantastic and a true life experience! Thank you so much Sue.

  • A great gift to myself. I feel renewed and reborn, sounds silly but it has really happened for me! I am a new person and ready to start living and be happy. A special thanks to Sue and her many years of experience. Yoga was varied and strong enough for all levels.  The Core energetics work was powerful stuff – Ranil is a master!

The afternoons are for re balancing from the activities of the day. It is a time for inner reflection with a focus more on restorative and relaxation practice, often incorporating a Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation). Personal attention is given to those with previous injuries with modifications given and props to assist in certain poses.
Restorative yoga is very beneficial for healing the effects of chronic stress when practiced regularly. A 10 minute “svasana” (relaxation pose) is given after every class.
