“Wonderful weekend Yoga retreat at the Blue Mountains. First time experience for a beginner yogi! Beautiful bushland, grounded location, casual feel, caring and skilled volunteer staff. First time for mediation, yoga and also drumming!!! Very nurturing environment and one I would highly recommend for those considering a retreat. Easy drive or train ride from Sydney. Thanks Happy Buddha..”

About Happy Buddha Retreats

We’ve been creating transformative and relaxation-filled yoga and meditation retreats for over twenty years led by founder and owner Athil Singh.

All our retreats, including the signature retreats, are designed to nourish your mind and body, to help you feel a sense of renewal and tap into your inner happiness. You’ll learn how to slow down, reconnect with what sparks you and learn how to more effectively cope with the demands of your daily life.

From seasoned yogis to complete beginners, you’ll feel totally welcome, guided and supported at the centre. You also have the freedom to do as much or as little as you like.

Happy Buddha Retreats was born from a search for ‘a life less ordinary’ filled with happiness, peace and joy. We’ve remained true to this goal for over two decades: to create a nurturing environment in which you too can discover peace, contentment and connection.

Wednesday Wisdom 💫💫💫 
“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
Did you know a smile can actually trick your mind into being happier? 
We dare you to try it!? Even if it's the smallest smile right now. Or smile 'hello' to a stranger on the street. (You might just make their day!)

Look up! 👀
Where ever you are, take a moment to change your perspective. Notice what's around you. What can you see? What surprises you? What colour is the sky? What are the trees whispering to you? The sky-scrapers? The sun? 
Now feel that connection to everything and everyone around you...
