Come and find your bliss at a women's weekend retreat staying in luxurious safari tents in the rolling green hills of the Byron Hinterland with yoga and meditation surrounded by the beauty of nature. Make your glamping retreat dreams come true at a private yoga safari in the Byron Hinterland customized to meet your every need, whether it's a fun getaway with friends or some relaxed respite from a busy life.
Glamping means glamorous camping and you will stay in luxury safari tents with everything you need. Set on a rainforest retreat in the Byron Hinterland, there is a stream for swimming, trees for shady picnics, and grass for walking barefoot.

This retreat will take place at Byron Farm Retreat, a secluded Hinterland spot where you can only hear the birds and see the rainforest trees. Everything is designed to ensure your complete comfort and privacy.
Close your eyes for a minute and imagine waking up in a luxury safari tent to the sound of birdsong in the rainforest. You will embrace the day with an invigorating morning yoga session with Kate, then feast on a nourishing organic gourmet breakfast under the trees. You will then create a space for you to soothe all of your senses at a sound healing with Seriya.
You will all sit down to an organic gourmet picnic lunch served to you on the grass, and thereafter enjoy your free time to relax between sessions with swimming, reading, or writing. Whatever you like! After you relax, you will dance your heart out at a body movement workshop with Bec.
To rest and recover from all that dancing, chill out at the tent for yummy chai and bliss balls. For dinner, you will feast on a gourmet organic dinner under the Byron stars. To settle you into the night and to calm your mind, Kate will lead you on a peaceful mindfulness meditation. At the end of the day, you will gather around the starlit fire with Seriya playing music as your backdrop.
Retreat back into your luxury safari tent to sleep restoratively surrounded by nature, and wake up to do it all again for two more blissful days.

"Being part of the inaugural Yogafari retreat in the Byron Bay Hinterland was a wonderful and amazing experience. Everything about the day was both calming and invigorating, from the yoga sessions to the silent mediation walk, from the massage to the sound healing and everything else in between. I came away totally bliss out."

"The Yogafari day was a lovely fusion of healing, connection and movement. Having never tried Yogalates, Kate's class was a perfect introduction. Her heartfelt meditative style really helps you connect and remain present whilst being guided through both soft and strong movements."
