Your experience requires no experience.

Happy Buddha Retreats are for everyone. From seasoned yogis to complete beginners, you’ll feel totally welcome, guided and supported whilst at our retreat centre. You have the freedom to do as much or as little as you like! Our hope is that you will connect with and listen to your body’s innate wisdom.

Enjoy time away in the Blue Mountains and reconnect

We’re more than a yoga retreat! Happy Buddha Retreats is a unique place where in just a short 2 or 3 days you can enjoy time away to  fill your own cup. It’s like a reboot to your physical, emotional and spiritual needs. You’ll leave feeling more grounded and connected back to who you are and what you want from this amazing life.

Immersed in sacred bushland there are several walks offering breathtaking views and a chance to commune with nature at its most raw and elemental form…..by sitting with nature, being mindful, and slowing down.

Get your happy back!

We never get tired of seeing our guests arriving with the weight of the world on their shoulders, but leaving with a sense of lightness and serenity. With the huge rise in stress-related illnesses, it make sense to take time out and give your body (and mind) a chance to recover. Experience that feeling of happiness and joy again!

We’re a down-to-earth crew who are passionate about providing guided retreat programs which spark something within. More than a yoga and wellness retreat, think about Happy Buddha Retreats as a getaway to get back to who you are!

Welcome to the Blue Mountains and Happy Buddha Retreat near Sydney

A million miles from anywhere – But not far from Sydney

Looking to experience an amazing yoga retreat close to Sydney? Despite giving the impression that your are far from civilisation, our retreat centre is only 90 minutes drive from Sydney, meaning you can easily factor in a short retreat experience!!

Find your Inner Joy commencing on Monday, Wednesday or Friday in the Blue Mountains retreat centre. Or perhaps you would like to Journey into Stillness each weekend in our eclectic and cosy communal house (on the same Blue Mountains property). And away from the Blue Mountains is our brand new Rhythmic Meditation weekend offered at Glenrock Scout Camp.

Combine yoga & meditation insights with real life

Our retreat facilitators have spent many years evolving retreat programs designed to enhance your sense of well-being and promote the flow of prana. Prana is the ancient Sanskrit word for life-force, also known in other eastern cultures as chi or ki. Nurturing this energy brings huge benefits in terms of physical, mental and emotional healing, which will remain with you long after you return to the daily routines of the real world.

Each retreat includes a yoga and meditation insights  ~ where we help you to understand how meditation & mindfulness can reduce stress, and increase clarity in your every day lives.

Stay in simple but cosy rooms

We’ve set up our rooms with simplicity in mind; perfect for your nightly sleep or when you need an afternoon nap.

If you’re participating in the Inner Joy, Women’s Creative Connection or a Long Weekend program you’ll be in the retreat centre and rooms are twin-share with an ensuite bathroom. Rooms have ceiling fans for the warmer months and when the weather gets chilly, our central heating will be at-the-ready.

Along with two levels of rooms, the centre includes a ‘hidden’ yoga space, quiet zen den, communal dining area, foyer lounge, outdoor patio with tables and of course the swimming pool! The cosy communal house (for the Journey into Stillness retreat) also has an eclectic vibe with a ‘dream’ studio, mediation space, communal areas and an outdoor workshop space.

A 5 star soul discovery journey! I attended this retreat with my best friend to spend some time together…but we got far more out of this retreat. It surprised us! The beautiful facilitator provided a path to understanding ourselves in such a short time. The best therapy I’ve had and I’ve had a lot in my 50 years. Booking in every year for a life-reset!
