Find Your Calm
Step away from your devices, responsibilities and worries. The entire weekend is devoted just to you, there's no need to think or plan and all your meals are prepared by private chefs.
Do as little or as much as you like on your retreat, with a thoughtful and balanced schedule of yoga, meditation, breathwork, workshops and plenty of free time.
Reconnect to your inner peace, calm, clarity and creativity.
We create the time and the space for you to find your calm. A whole weekend being nurtured in nature and guided on a journey towards creating balance and calm.
You don't need to THINK, you don't need to plan.
Step away from your phone, your responsibilities and chores and we'll take care of everything.
Yoga, meditation, breathwork and sound healing are woven throughout your weekend. You'll be integrating tools and techniques to use on retreat and in your daily life.
It's a spacious weekend with plenty of time to nap, read that book you just haven't been able to finish or just to lie on a blanket and stare at the clouds.
Delicious and nutritious vegetarian meals made with love by our talented private chef will keep your belly happy.
All bedrooms are single so you won't be sharing with anyone else.
You'll leave the mountain feeling like you've nourished yourself - mentally, emotionally and physically.
Why Are The Retreats Silent?
Life is busy
Life is loud.
We offer you the time, the space and the tools to escape the hustle, the bustle and the noise of every day life.
And within that space and time you'll hear so much more, you'll notice so much more.
Not just from nature but from your heart.
Many previous guests have experienced transformations and breakthroughs as a result of their time in silence.
They found the clarity and the answers they needed.
They found their calm.
Winter Silent Retreat
Springbrook in winter is simply divine with mist swirling around us and the gentle sounds of the rainforest serving as the perfect background sounds.
Curl up in front of the fireplace in the lounge and dining room with a book and a cuppa, and be absorbed in your own relaxation without any chit-chat to distract you.
You might switch on your electric blanket and hop into your pyjamas before you come to your evening guided meditation (in the heated and carpeted hall), so you can drift back to your cosy, warm bed, for a peaceful slumber
When it comes to taking a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, there's nothing quite like retreating from the usual routines and chores like cooking and cleaning.
On our retreats, we understand that good food is an essential part of any wellness journey.
From the freshest ingredients to the most delicious flavours, our private chefs are committed to really making you feel spoiled and nourished. All our meals are vegetarian and our chefs are experts at catering to gluten-free, vegan, or any other dietary restrictions
Whether you're an avid yogi or simply looking for a new experience, there's something for everyone in our yoga classes which are carefully curated to cater to all bodies - from beginners to more experienced practitioners.
Your time on the yoga mat is designed to help you quieten your busy mind and connect deeply back to your body. On retreat is the perfect time to discover yoga for the first time, or get back into the routine of a regular practice.
With our guidance, you'll be able to fully let go of your worries and stress, truly relax and find your calm again.
Revive A Hobby Or Passion
Your spare time on retreat might be used to explore the forest, or to sneak back to bed for a guilt-free nap. You might wander down to the waterfall, or blissfully do nothing at all!
Some guests love to dabble in something they enjoy to do but rarely get the time, so bring anything you need if you'd like to journal, knit, draw or paint.

Some questions you might have
Why are the retreats silent?Have you ever been to a yoga class and floated out? Feeling totally calm and balanced inside and out. However, that feeling often rapidly disappears as you start to interact with the world around you again. Imagine holding onto that feeling and building upon it as the weekend proceeds. There is no social media to distract you away from it, there is no listening to news or other people's problems. There is no rushing from chores to responsibilities. Sure your mind will most likely be busy - as is everyone else's in the group. But you will be learning and applying new techniques to help calm that chatter.
What are the "rules" on retreat?This is not a Vipassana retreat which is quite strict about what you can and can't do (eg no reading of books). On our retreats you can have a massage, read books, journal and indulge in quiet, mindful hobbies in your free time. We do ask that you put your mobile phone away and not have it visible to other guests. If you must make a call we ask you to do it in your car so no one else hears you. If you have been wanting to reduce your screen time, this is the perfect place to start!
Can I book with my partner/friend?Yes! It is a very special and meaningful experience to do together.
I'm pregnant, can I come on retreat?Yes, we have had many pregnant ladies attend our retreats. We have had beautiful feedback about how special the bonding experience was for Mum and growing bub. The meditation and breathing tools you will learn will be invaluable for motherhood.
How are your retreats different from Vipassana?Please see above "what are the rules on retreat". Also we are not primarily meditation focussed. Although we offer a lot of meditation instruction and classes, it is not the sole focus. Vipassana is highly structured whereas our retreats are more relaxed and free-flowing.
I have never done yoga/meditation is that ok?Yes! We love introducing people to both yoga and meditation and our classes are designed to be helpful for both beginners and more experienced practitioners.
