Move out of the fast lane, and into the slow river of wonder
I invite you to join myself, Sarah and a bunch of other wonderful humans on this 3-night Yoga + Wellness Retreat at Wybalena. A stunning 170-acre organic farm located in the Byron Bay Shire (about 20-30mins from the city centre).
Now, before you start thinking that we’ll be staying in some hippy converted barn (which is totally cool btw), allow me to jump in and inform you that this farm is actually pretty flash; including architecturally designed accommodation, purpose-built yoga studio, floating outdoor yoga deck and an infrared sauna (you’ll love it!)
Love your tucker!? Excellent! You + your belly will be well looked after with vibrant, farm-to-table vegetarian meals created by Wybalena’s resident chef, Dani Amann, who does a bloody good job in showcasing the farm’s best produce and local bounty of the beautiful Byron Bay hinterland.
In a typical retreat day... Share a story with a newfound friend over a cuppa tea, walk barefoot on the earth, learn how to grow your own organic produce, wander with the cows, yoga play on the grass, float in the pool, detox in the sauna, eat wholesome food, book a massage, 1:1 yoga + lifestyle coach session or kinesiology appointment, surrender to the blissful sounds of Tibetan bowls, go deep into a yoga Nidra meditation OR enjoy an afternoon kip... The retreat is your oyster, shuck it real good!!!
Connect. Explore. Awaken.

"This was my first ever retreat so I was going with an open mind. The whole experience was incredible. A huge thank you to our wonderful instructors Alysa and Sarah for making us feel so special. Your generosity, humility, and expertise in your field allowed all of us to have such a memorable experience for life. The venue was incredible including the food thanks to our wonderful hosts who owned the organic farm. The 3-day schedule was perfect giving us the choice to attend classes depending on how our bodies were feeling. The yoga was fantastic and I was able to learn so much along the way. Lastly, it was such a bonus to share this weekend with so many other wonderful women who share similar values. I can certainly see some of us staying friends for a long time. I would highly recommend going to one of Alysa and Sarah's retreats!! You will be absolutely blown away!! Thank you again."

"The location was perfect for retreating; The teachers were fabulous, energetic and fun. They created a variety of classes and workshops which aimed at enhancing and assisting your understanding of proper alignment for inversions and handstands as well as numerology and oils. The sound healing and yoga nidra was new for me, and it was amazinggg! I highly recommend it. Combined with yin in the evening it was the perfect wind down to have a restful sleep. Each class was beautifully unique and created to give a different focus to your yoga practice. The teachers worked amazing together. Yin & Yang, and gave the classes a great vibe; The three meals per day were incredibly wholesome and well balanced; I loved that you could further rejuvenate and restore through on-site Kinesiology and massage. Absolute bliss! Also the sauna and salt water pool! It was my first retreat and the standard has been set high! I'm looking forward to another retreat with these great people!"

"I attended Alysa’s 3 night yoga retreat over the past weekend and all I can say is that it was nothing short of spectacular and exactly what I needed! This was my first ever retreat and far exceeded my expectations- the schedule was busy enough to keep us engaged, while also allowing adequate time to relax and recharge. Her yoga classes during the retreat were perfect; they were challenging enough for the seasoned yogi while also being accommodating for a 31 week pregnant yogi such as myself The workshops were fun and inspiring and the venue was simply beautiful. I had such an amazing time and look forward to attending more of whatever Alysa is dishing out! "
