Take a break from all responsibilities and treat yourself to a transformative private weekend retreat to reset and rejuvenate! Imagine spending a weekend getting immersed in yoga, meditation and mindfulness practices in a beautiful private house close to an uncrowded beach with a small group of good friends. Nourishing healthy food and plenty of time between yoga classes to relax, surf or just chill and read a book… That’s what a Saltwater Curls retreat is all about!

Private custom retreats

Maybe you’re planning as special birthday or a hens do, or just looking for an excuse to escape the city with your friends – regardless of what the occasion I would love to organise the perfect weekend retreat for your group!

Your retreat can be fully customised to your groups yoga goals and other preferences (e.g. surf & yoga or chill in style etc.), so just let me know what your wishes are, and I will get back to you to discuss your dream retreat. With enough notice your private retreat can be organised anywhere between Northern NSW (Byron Bay region) and Sydney.

What’s included?

All Saltwater Curls retreats are set in beautiful seaside locations and carefully curated for small private groups of 5-8 guests only. Packed full of transformative yoga, meditation and mindfulness classes and yummy, healthy, healing meals – not forgetting that a weekend away has to come with a bit of chill time too. And we always pick a location close to a beach with fun waves suitable to any level surfer!
