What to expect

YOUR EXPERIENCE

You can look forward to a heart-guided program with mindful movement, retreat workshops available, nourishing food, wellness, healing, relaxation, rest, nature-based activities and local touring. Our retreats are of high standard of comfort, quality, delivery and overall nurturing experience. 

Our retreats are themed with a purpose and the workshops select this. We tune into the seasonal time and how our bodies may be responding. Generally Autumn, Winter and Spring outside of school holidays / events, are opportune times to retreat with low to mid-peak times to explore Byron Bay. 

Autumn is a time to slow down. To learn to listen more to our own intuition, our feelings, our flow, ready to nourish and warm ourselves for the cooler months to come.

Winter is a time to retreat and go inwardly, with nourishing and cosy experiences. Its a time to restore body and nurture. The program may mean less nature experiences and connect to nourishing soulful experiences.

Spring is a time for positive change, an opportunity to reset with your own inner JOY and where we wish to direct our energy into our future selves. Its a time to refresh and reconnect with our senses, and get back in touch with the outdoors.

Which ever season we embrace – you will be supported, guided the whole way through this uplifting, transformational, nourished-hearted, seasonal retreat program that naturally connects you to the natural healing and wisdom of nature and within yourself.  

Our aim to simply to have a nourishing retreat break for mind, body and heart. We hope you depart with nourishing tools and perspectives to support the integration of these retreat experiences back into your unique lifestyle at home.

You will be in for a soulful treat with a special sound bath experience by Polly. Also she will offer holistic massage to select guests alongside our other in-house massage therapists.

This was the first health retreat I’d ever done and it really did exceed my expectations. It was the perfect balance of movement, treatments, nourishing food, exploring, community interaction and timeout. The private resort was beautiful and I loved the daily movement, meditation and workshops. Our retreat hosts and facilitators were amazing. Their passion, organisation, attentiveness and talents combined, really enhanced the experience for me. I left the trip with valuable insights and feeling refreshed. I highly recommend these retreats to anyone needing some time out, looking to try something different or wanting some healthy living inspiration!
