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.
Liz
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.
Gregory
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.

衷心感謝你們讓我度過了一個非常美好的瑜伽禪修週末。我的思想,身體和靈魂都得到了滋潤,滿血復活!感謝Athill和Sarah超棒的瑜伽課程,內容很有趣而且豐富多元。
Liz
我以前從未參加過禪修。預訂時真的不太清楚狀況。但是在這里呆了兩天后,我可以用一個詞總結體驗……幸福!從您開車進入酒店直到您離店的那一刻,您都會體驗到令人難以置信的平和與安寧。
Gregory
剛剛在「快樂佛舍」度過了一個幸福的周末,並且已經在計劃我的下一次行程…集體活動和自由時間恰到好處,完全沒有逼你參加這參加那的壓力,我很喜歡。你既享有充分的隱私,同時也有認識新人的機會,兩全其美。
Corina
我絕對推薦這個禪修團……方方面面都很棒。我是和我姐姐一起來的,我們很幸運,環境很陽光,周圍都是充滿幸福感的人們。我們輕鬆自由、充滿活力,快樂地回家!感謝快樂佛陀團隊-大家都超越了自己!
Charm
工作人員很可愛,景色很棒,瀑布很壯觀,食物也很棒。一個逃離繁忙都市、放鬆身心的週末好去處。對我來說,陰瑜伽是絕對的亮點,程度不同的人都可以有機會參與。
Kate
我過得很開心。地點、設施和員工都是一流。瑜伽,冥想和擊鼓既有趣又放鬆。按摩是最好的!見到這麼多善良的人來一起體驗也很高興!
David
環境輕鬆又充滿幸福感,自己可以決定參與的程度!值得一遊的禪修之所,可以讓自己恢復元氣精神....一個可以享受美景和健康美食的舒適去處。強烈推薦!
Alka
這個真是太神奇了。我以前從未做過瑜伽,本來因為食物看起來不錯又想放空一下就去試試。瑜伽很美,食物出奇地出色。別想了,快報班!
Tanya
這次體驗可能是我為自己做過的一件最好的事。小組活動很棒。食物好吃到超乎想像!打鼓圈是我坐下玩過的最有趣的活動,這個地點本身就很美……打算盡快再去。絕對私心推薦給需要自我調整自己的人,甚至是那些還未意識到自己需要的人。體驗豐富,益處又多多!,
Elizabeth
快樂佛舍有我原來不知道自己正在找尋的一切!!!禪修以同步和諧的方式進行,使所有素不相識的人感覺一見如故!每個人似乎都發現了自己身心中不曾觸及的未知領域。我帶著全新動力回到家中,以優雅和微笑來應對生活中的挑戰。
