Each event has a specific theme which weaves in and out over the duration of the retreat, to support your practice, enhancing it beyond the mat.

What you'll enjoy:

  • twice-daily yoga asana practices to appeal to students of all levels

  • highly experienced teachers who offer educative approaches to invite your yoga to grow, advance, explore and enhance

  • beautiful morning guided meditation at day break

  • relaxation practices including restorative yoga, yoga nidra and quiet guided walks in nature

  • discussions and group activities introducing philosophy and insights to feed into your yoga and daily life

  • onsite library for quiet learning and contemplation

  • sumptuous homecooked vegetarian meals and our very own onsite cafe and barista, selling coffees and other pleasures tucked amongst the trees

  • comfortable share-style accommodation in either small rooms or larger dorms, with the added option to camp onsite

  • beautiful bush setting with the sea right on the doorstep to enjoy

  • a wonderfully welcoming and warm community, whether you're coming for the first time or as a seasoned retreater

Presented By Dance Of Life: Centre Of Yoga And Healing, Yogafest Retreat is a twice-yearly event run wholly by volunteers and all money raised go to support Amma's Australian Ashram's charitable community and outreach programs, including feeding those in need and children's programs.

We look forward to welcoming you to our next Yogafest Retreat Somers!

What can I bring into the event?

You'll need to bring all your sleeping gear, bathroom items and being in winter a coat and umbrella. We don't wear shoes inside so suggest easy slip on and off shoes are great.
