About this Retreat

Escape the busyness of life for our yoga wellness weekend away on the beautiful Surf Coast. This season’s Yoga retreat is designed as a whole body immersion.  An experience of intimate life exploration as we mark the coming of the Autumn Equinox. This is the time of the year that marks a moment of true balance: a time of equal light & dark. 

Making space for true Autumn to begin.

This retreat offers an opportunity to honour time for yourself. A time to reflect on life’s harvest; to restore and rebalance. As a small and intimate sangha, you will be invited to get cosy, create warmth and share stories: all facilitated with hatha/restorative yoga practices, pranayama/meditation, integrative acupuncture treatments, an abundance of fresh seasonal foods, boutique accommodation, coastal scenery, relaxation, and like-minded awesome people.

Come and allow yourself to be held and supported as you relax and restore. Let us fill your bucket and your belly. 

Be brave enough to become your own greatest adventure.

Bask in the relaxing atmosphere of the Surf Coast, with the option to explore the restaurants, shops, beaches, and coastal walks of Torquay.

Dietarys and Nourishment 

Your nourishing meals are designed and created by your host Kelly Dalton.  An advocate for cooking with love, Kelly is  passionate about eating fresh seasonal produce.

Think of your retreat as an opportunity to sit back and relax as you are taken on a curated food journey. All the ingredients and produce are seasonal and freshly sourced from local markets and produce stores. The catering includes an abundance of quality wholesome home-cooked food with plenty of condiments and goodies. 

With notice, we can cater for vegan, vegetarian, GF, DF, allergies, & expecting mums. You’ll get the chance to note it all down during the booking process. Just let us know so we can prepare great options for you!

About Rache.

Hello I’m Rache. I share my stories about my small place in the world in order to share insights about our lives off the mat. I found stories easy to share with people laying supported on the ground, their eyes closed.

From here came the inspiration for Barwon Heads Yoga.

I’m a passionate yogi living in the beautiful coastal town of Barwon Heads. An avid collector of ideas and a deep belief in an even playing field, I’m a mother, a surfer and a dreamer with a deep interest in the human spirit.PRICE

An intimate location with 8 retreat guests accommodated onsite and 2 additional day guests attending our Saturday practice.

All your food & drink, hatha and restorative yoga practices, meditation circles, fire ceremony, integrative acupuncture treatment & beautiful accommodation for the weekend. Not to mention great company!
