Yamba is a beautiful little beach town on the North Coast of NSW, an hour and a half South of Byron Bay. It’s famous for its quintessential Australian beaches (one for every wind direction) with glassy water and expansive shores. Nearby Angourie is a favourite for surfers and offers incredible beach walks with the rugged national park as the backdrop.

During your free time you can explore the natural beauty of Yamba, go surfing, or check out its funky shops and cafes. Belinda’s Store, Beachwood Cafe, Leche Cafe, Uptown Yamba and Barbaresco Angourie are firm favourites.

We also highly recommend making time for a massage with Amanda or Kerri at Yamba Remedial Massage. Both are experienced massage therapists committed to the wellbeing of their clients. And one one of the loveliest thing about this business is their location – inside the quaint Belinda’s Store – such a unique set up and relaxation is almost immediate.

Our yoga classes will take place in the Old Kirk. It is a relocated church and is the most beautiful yoga room. Its polished wooden floorboards and peaceful ambience make it perfect for mindful yoga, meditation and deep relaxation.

The Cottage has been our family holiday house for six generations. We welcome our guests here for our shared meals.

The Old Kirk and The Cottage are a short walk apart, as are the shops & cafes and the beaches.

To allow for varying budgets and preferences of our guests, accommodation and transport isn't included in our retreats. If you are visiting Yamba we are very happy to help you choose suitable accommodation.
The best option for airports to arrive into is Ballina. From here you can catch the Yamba Airport Shuttle or hire a car. Ballina airport is approximately one hour and 20 minutes from Yamba. Grafton also has an airport, and is only 45 minutes from Yamba. Please note:  you will need to arrive the evening before as the first yoga class starts early.

I have attended a number of yoga retreats run by Sarah and Jo and found them fabulous - The yoga classes suit all levels with people able to choose their own level and pace. The prepared meals are delicious and healthy and the shared dinners a great opportunity to mingle and learn more. - Great value for 5 classes, some yummy food - all in beautiful relaxing Yamba.
