Your total health and wellness retreat is coming to the Yarra Valley in February 2020.
Our first-ever full-day retreat will be hosted at Yarra Valley Estate, in conjunction with Frank1964 Bar & Brew and The Edible Forest.
Begin your new year with an immersive experience of total mind, body and spirit health, set amongst the beautiful grounds of the Yarra Valley Estate.
Awaken your body and mind with a gentle, restorative yoga class followed by guided meditation and sound healing in the stunning location of the open-air chapel.
Share in a unique and educational garden-to-table picnic grazing experience. You'll enjoy a light lunch created with delicious produce sourced directly from the Edible Forest and home-brewed kombucha, while learning about the health benefits of these organic and unique ingredients.
Take a guided tour and learn about permaculture in the amazing, must-see one-acre Edible Forest filled entirely with edible and medicinal plants. Then, further your knowledge of plant-based health with a cooking class/workshop using all-natural ingredients sourced straight from the Forest!
Finally, spend the rest of your afternoon relaxing on the lawns of Yarra Valley Estate and mingling with your fellow retreaters, whilst enjoying a cup of tea. #bliss
