With longer days and warmer nights on the horizon, what better time than now to break out of hibernation and re-energise by booking yourself and your bestie into a serene yoga retreat? Taking advantage of Perth’s tranquillity alone is a no-brainer, but when you can immerse yourself into your surroundings through the invigorating practice of yoga, we couldn’t think of anything more ideal.
Here are some of Perth’s best yoga retreats.
The Yoga Clinic
Take some ‘you-time’ at The Yoga Clinic with their upcoming afternoon mini-retreats that run for up to three-hours on 9 November and 14 December, getting you out with enough time to refresh and spruce up for your Saturday night out. What better way to feel at the top of your game than after an introspective Meridian or Yoga Nidra session?
Kookaburra Creek Yoga Centre
With thoughtfully tailored yoga retreats to suit those searching for a day, weekend or week-long journey of mindfulness, the Kookaburra Creek Yoga Centre has it all. The Sound Silence Stillness one-day retreat, running on both Saturdays or Sundays is the perfect revitalising boost you need, with a vegan morning or afternoon tea and lunch or dinner provided.
Restful Waters Meditation Centre
Nestled quietly among an avocado orchard and water setting, Restful Waters Meditation Centre is our go-to for focusing on inner peace and restfulness with a range of services from yoga to tai chi and counselling provided. Their Summer Bliss three-hour mini-yoga retreat on 24 November will give you the time-out you need, and for those in need of a detox, their Bali yoga retreat in May 2020 is just what you need.
Yogahealth & Treemendus Health
Manifest your positive energy with Yogahealth and Treemendus Health in their one-day yoga and sound healing retreat on Sunday 22 September. Over four hours you will be guided through techniques to restore equilibrium to your root chakra, find alignment through sound healing and refresh with a vegetarian lunch and homemade kombucha.
Start your day off right with a meditation, trek and yin class through one of Perth’s most naturally stimulating wonders, Bells Rapids Park. The Yoga Trekking team will guide you through this four-hour adventure, and finish it off with vegan tea, BYO food for a picnic and a revitalising swim. Get your group together now for the first session on 2 November.
Rebecca Brown Yoga
For a not-too-far-from-home escape, book yourself off work from 22 to 24 November and head down to Pinjarra’s Fairbridge Village for Rebecca Brown’s Weekend Yoga Retreat. Indulge your body and soul with home-cooked meals, cooking classes, journaling and bath-salt making as well as yoga styles tailored to suit the different moments of the day.
