Billabong Retreat is the creation of Paul and Tory von Bergen who purchased the land in 2008 and moved from their small 70 meter square unit in Bondi to 44,000 meter square of pristine Australian bush!

The vision was to create a healing space to reconnect to nature, of themselves, others, and the nature around you. It is non-religious and open to all people of any belief or background. It is a place to find peace of mind, contentment, and discover wellness.


Yoga is an ancient discipline that connects body-mind-spirit through postures (asana), breath (pranayama, sensory awareness (pratyahara), and meditation (dharana and dhyanam). This Yoga Essentials program is suitable for those with no experience as well as those who want a refresher.

The retreat includes twice daily yoga flow classes at 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. plus special yoga workshops each day at 9 a.m. and evening meditation every other day.

Billabong Retreat teaches in the tradition of Krishnamacharya and the founders, Paul and Tory plus yoga teachers Basia and Natalie, were all trained by Michael de Manicor, director of The Yoga Institute and past president of Yoga Australia.
