Location: Cloudy Bay Lagoon, Bruny Island, Tasmania. 

Retreat to Bruny Island in the off season

Get cosy at a weekend yoga retreat this Winter on stunning Bruny Island. Join us at Cloudy Bay Lagoon Estate for a memorable experience that combines yoga, great food, and immersing in nature.


Imagine prioritising yourself and your own needs for a whole weekend. Whether you crave alone time or welcome the opportunity to connect with like-minded souls, there will be something on offer for introverts and extroverts alike.

Santosha Yoga Australia retreats are inclusive, accessible and welcoming for everyone, but especially for people who feel intimidated by some mainstream portrayals of yoga.


There are no strict regimes (everything is optional), nothing too woo woo, and there will be people of varying ages, abilities and experience (at yoga, but also at life).


We will do yoga, meditation, breathwork, workshops and other activities, but of course you have the freedom to choose to participate in as little or as much as you like.


In your free time you might choose to rest and relax, go for a walk in the bush or along the beach, get cosy in front of the fire, or watch pademelons from the deck. 

We stay in an architect-designed home that sits on the edge of Cloudy Bay Lagoon. The large deck is a wonderful place to watch the sunset over the lagoon. 

Surrounded by bush, you will hear nothing but the sounds of nature - or perhaps silence.

Our own private chef, Courtney, will nourish us with her delectable cooking and infectious laughter.


Your Teacher

Danielle Bendall

Danielle has led multiple retreats over the last 8 years. She treasures the opportunity to deep-dive into the richer and more subtle practices of yoga. Danielle will share how to embed these practices off the mat and into your daily life.


This retreat is designed for you if:

  • You've always yearned to go on a yoga retreat but were worried about fitting in among a group of young, bendy bodies.

  • You crave an escape from the busyness of everyday life, desiring to incorporate rest, relaxation and self-care into your routine.

  • You dedicate significant time to others' needs and long for a moment to focus on yourself.

  • You seek heartfelt connections with like-minded individuals on a similar journey.

  • You strive to align your life with your values and priorities, and require a clear headspace to make decisions.

  • You yearn for a break from the ordinary, an opportunity to break free from old habits and patterns.

  • You're eager to delve deeper into the teachings of yoga beyond your regular weekly classes.
