This retreat will be held at the Yanada Retreat Centre in St. Albans. This fully equipped yoga retreat centre on the Hawkesbury River is surrounded by beautiful bush land so you can escape the bustle of the city and enjoy some real silence, and it´s just a short 90-minute drive from Sydney.


Over the weekend we will explore the strength of Hatha Yoga and the power of a Dynamic Yoga practice, Meditation classes, workshops as well as a Restorative yoga class and Yoga Nidra class to help you relax soon after arriving. 

The retreat is fully catered and all meals will be vegetarian. Learn how to recreate these delicious meals at home in the cooking workshop on Sunday.

Classes will be suitable for all levels from complete beginners to the more advanced yogi.
