About The Retreat 

Join Holly for a winter escape in the serene Victorian countryside town of Daylesford, just over an hour's drive from Melbourne. Specifically designed for self-employed creatives, this unique immersion will provide tools to connect the body and mind, and recharge and rejuvenate after the busy summer months. 

 Over the course of the weekend there will be plenty of time to immerse yourself in the tranquil property, as well as the natural surroundings of the nearby Wombat State Forest. A mixture of yang and yin style yoga, in addition to guided meditations and customised lifestyle workshops for arts workers, will leave you feeling nourished and refreshed.

 What's Included

- 2 x daily yoga classes (yang style practice in the mornings, yin style practice in the evenings. Yoga classes will be appropriate for all levels from beginner to advanced)

- Delicious vegetarian cuisine prepared by an on-site catering team (3 meals per day from dinner Friday night to Sunday lunch) plus coffee, tea and snacks

- Nature walks and guided meditations in and around the Wombat State Forest 

- Lifestyle workshops on creative time management, goal setting, and how to integrate healthy lifestyle choices into a creative profession

- 2 nights shared accommodation at a large heritage-style property in Daylesford (see below)

- Arts industry professionals, including but not limited to photographers, musicians, arts managers, designers, artists of all kinds 

- Individuals with an interest in improving their general health and wellbeing through guided practices of yoga and meditation, and looking for a starting point
