We are a yoga and wellness retreat located in Wentworth Falls, in the beautiful Blue Mountains only 1˝ hour’s drive from Sydney. Our retreats are for everyone, from complete beginners to advanced yogis. Retreats start every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and last for 3 days / 2 nights. Even though our retreats are short, most retreaters will describe their experience as life-changing!
