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!

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.

Relax in our comfortable and spacious retreat accommodation

Welcome to your home away from home in Sydney’s BIue Mountains!

In the past three years we’ve added our own “Happy Buddha boho” style to this chalet style retreat and communal house. 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 intimate Women’s retreat and Silent Meditation 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!
