Spring Retreat
Oct 2023

Treat yourself to a relaxing, ‘foodie’, yoga weekend this spring

Friday 13th to Sunday 15th October 2023

Umina Beach Yoga and Pachamama Catering are hosting this local weekend retreat at Watagan Eco Retreat, right here on the Coast.
Daily yoga and cooking classes, delicious vegetarian food, good company and plenty of restful quiet time for yourself.
Soak in the hot tub and star gaze. Share a spicy chai or glass of wine around the fire with like minded friends. Simply relax.

The beautiful mountain retreat is set amongst 40 acres of private wilderness, surrounded by tall trees, forest trails and rain forest gullies. Give yourself an opportunity to leave behind busy daily life, a chance to pause, connect with your self, connect with nature, to be quiet and spend time simply being present.

Making time in life to ‘retreat’ is one of the finest gifts you can give to yourself.
