Retreat Overview

Treat yourself and come to Anahata for a relaxing break over Queens Birthday Weekend. Enjoy Anahata’s spectacular natural environment, nourishing food, low technology environment, and yoga and relaxation practices to refresh and relax before the cold of winter arrives. Warm and nurture yourself with a cosy log fire, thick soups and heart-opening practices

Our special Yoga Refresh breaks allow you to move at your own pace, to relax and unwind, and dip your toes into the simplicity of a yogic lifestyle.

Take time off for personal reflection or be inspired by interaction with like-minded people. Find your own rhythm with options to join in on yoga classes, relaxation practice, meditation sessions and chanting. Immerse yourself in bush hikes or open country walks with spectacular views, writing, or reading from our large library of spiritual and health books. Spend time in the garden or find a spot in the surrounding native forest to meditate or just relax. Healthy vegetarian meals are provided throughout your stay, nourishing your body as you unwind from the busyness of daily life.

There are opportunities to add on private therapeutic yoga sessions, body treatments or nutritional consultations.

Leave feeling inspired, refreshed and equipped with new ways to bring balance into your heart and mind, and your home and work life.
