Awakened You Yoga Retreat

25 - 29th JANUARY 2023

This 4 day/4 night yoga retreat in the beautiful backlands of Byron Bay, creates a wonderful healing summer escape with lots of of yoga, meditation, workshops, delicious food, stunning retreat grounds, and plenty of time to enjoy the amazing surrounding nature, to swim and relax. 

In this retreat we'll be exploring our own softer side, connecting to our intuition and deep wisdom. We will be exploring our inner guiding power, unfolding our inner truths, being guided by both the quality of Love (Shringara) and Peace (Shanti).​

Anneriek creates a trusting and open environment to explore your inner wisdom. Each day typically includes: Morning meditation, 2 asana sessions (flow and yin), workshop (philosophy/theory) and other theme related activities. A 2hr healing Spa circuit is part of the retreat.

I haven't been able to step on my mat for over 6 months - judging myself, bad thoughts etc. This retreat put the trust and confidence back into me to just be present. Facing me. Challenging me. Teaching me to just let go. ~Ashley

Loved the retreat. It was a real opportunity to get in touch with the present moment and my truths, to realise what is really important to me. ~Karren

Another amazing retreat conducted by Anneriek. This was my 5th retreat and I believe the best so far. Looking forward to the next one. ~Deb
