Guests are asked to maintain social silence from 9:30 p.m. until breakfast, being mindful that the Byron Yoga Retreat Centre is a place of relaxation and reflection.

Please note Byron Yoga Retreat Centre is not a luxury resort! The center is an eco-community designed along the lines of an ashram rather than a holiday resort. They have created a peaceful haven reflecting the surrounding nature.

Min is passionate about helping you to help yourself, to share tangible tools to manage change through yoga.

While much of the produce comes super-fresh from their own organic gardens, they are now sourcing where possible local, organic food if that is in season. The meals are therefore not only good for you but they also taste amazing!

SLOW means that all trainees, retreat guests, and staff benefit from toxin-free food with maximum freshness for optimum nutrients. The benefits of local and organic produce is much documented and eating only seasonal foods helps the body be in balance with the rhythm of nature. They believe that the investment they make in SLOW food pays off many times over.

All meals are vegetarian, and as well as following the principals of SLOW, the menus are prepared according to sattvic principles to promote healing and to lighten the body, mind, and spirit. They are meat and fish free but are now offering eggs at breakfast at an additional cost. Every meal includes gluten-free, vegan, and dairy-free options, and if you have any specific allergies, just let them know when you confirm your booking.
