Inner Joy Retreat

Our Blue Mountains Retreat awaits you!

Welcome to your Blue Mountains retreat…

One of the most important things you can do in life is to take time out to replenish yourself.

This is why our Blue Mountains retreats are so much more than just yoga, meditation and eating delicious food. Our workshops have been designed to nourish your mind and body, to ignite your spirit and tap back into the inner happiness that you deserve.

Whilst you are here, allow yourself to enter into a world of being, rather than doing, deepen your inquiry into a mindfulness practice and learn how to more effectively cope with the demands of your daily life. We offer all of this and more in the surrounds of the stunning natural landscape of the Blue Mountains, NSW Australia.

Begin each experience with curiosity and an open mind.

Whether you practice yoga daily or this is your first experience, it won’t matter. This retreat will allow you to see yourself and others in a different light. We encourage you to experience each activity with a full heart and an open mind.

We are all equals here, no one will judge you or push you beyond your limits. Feel lighter and laugh out loud with Happy Buddha 2-night Blue Mountains retreats.

Our Midweek and Weekend Retreat programs are 2-Night retreats and prices are based on twin-share rooms. We also have special events which we will announce via our social channels and on our newsletter.

Thank you from my heart for a truly wonderful yoga retreat weekend. My mind, body and soul feel lovingly nurtured and recharged! Thank you Athill and Sarah for all of the superb yoga sessions. They were all interesting and varied.

Never having been to a retreat, I had booked in for this not really knowing what to expect. After spending 2 days here, I can sum up this experience in one word ... bliss! From the moment you drive into the property to the moment you leave, you experience an incredible feeling of peace and serenity.

Just spent a blissful weekend at Happy Buddha and am already planning my next trip…There is just the right balance of organised activities and free time and I loved that there was no pressure to attend everything. I felt like I had the best of both worlds with a lot of privacy but also the opportunity to connect with others.
Corina
This retreat I would fully recommend ... it was just amazing in every way. Along with my sister we were fortunate to have sunshine & surrounded by happy people. We came home relaxed, energised and joyful! Thank you to all the Happy Buddha team - you all went "above & beyond"!
Charm
The staff were lovely, the view was amazing, the waterfall was spectacular and the food was outstanding. Great weekend to unwind away from the hectic city. Yin Yoga was an absolute highlight for me and I loved that every level of experience was able to join in to any session.
Kate
I had an awesome time. Such a beautiful location, great facilities and staff. The yoga, meditation and drumming was fun and relaxing. The massage was the best! And it was amazing to meet such nice kind people who attended also!
David
A relaxed atmosphere and a happy environment indeed where you decide how involved you wish to be! A retreat well worth all the time, to recharge oneself .... a comfortable place with lovely views and healthy, wholesome food. Highly recommend it!
Alka
Had THE MOST AMAZING TIME at this retreat. I had never done yoga before, and actually went because the food looked nice and I needed a break. The yoga was beautiful, the food was unbelievably fabulous. Basically, just get there!
Tanya
This experience was probably the best thing I’ve done for myself in forever. The groups were amazing. The food beyond amazing! The drumming circle was the most fun I’ve ever had sitting down and the place itself is beautiful….I’m planning to go again as soon as possible. Absolutely recommend this for anyone who needs a tune up and even those that don’t recognise they need it. A truly enriching experience with so many benefits!

Happy Buddha Retreats provided everything that I didn't know I was looking for!!! The retreat was put together in such a synchronous and harmonious way, that it left all of us - who started out as strangers - feeling like we had known each other forever! Everyone seemed to have found a little piece of themselves that they didn't know they were searching for. And I returned home with a renewed sense of motivation to take on life's challenges with grace and a smile.
