These nurturing retreat experiences are the perfect getaway to make sure your spirit is gleaming all the way through to the end of the year.

With ocean views, delicious, organic home cooked food and tranquil gardens, Florence House is a true delight.

There are magical places within the gardens allowing for relaxation and time out and beautiful places for walks nearby. This weekend retreat offers a unique, fun and transformational experience in the heart of the Seven Sisters Country Park.

“I took my mum on Katy’s retreat for her birthday and we had a wonderful weekend. Florence House is lovely, with great cliff top walks to blow away the cobwebs. The food is sensational. And most of all Katy’s yoga is a joy to participate in. Pitched for all levels and all bodies, Katy is very in tune with the needs and desires of the group she’s teaching. I particularly enjoy the breadth that her classes embody- pranayama, mantra, kirtan and a dip into yoga history or philosophy, all on top of an expansive range of asanas.

My mum loved it; we had a great time together and also enjoyed the company of the group, including yogis who keep coming back again and again. I shall be one of these for sure. If you want to treat yourself, or someone else, to a delicious weekend, this is the retreat for you.
