A mega number of retreats in Australia have listed this week…
Well, I might be exaggerating a little but double the number that usually list. This is very promising.
The zero community transmission of Covid cases and the start of the vaccine rollout are starting to create optimism. Not just within the community but with retreat operators as well. Economic confidence is slowly returning and they’re finally starting to feel positive that it’s safe to list their retreats and… people will come!
There’s a lot of yoga, health, rejuvenation, luxury and indulgence in the listings below, as well as permaculture and, of course, nature.

Ayurveda Village – 3 Day Rejuvenation Retreat
9-12 April 2021 – Verdun, South Australia
– Detox, Health, Nature, Yoga, Australia
Do you feel tired or exhausted? Do you suffer from dull aches and pains in your body? Have you been experiencing anxiety, lethargy, laziness, low appetite or poor digestion? Has stress affected your productivity?
If the answer is yes to any of these concerns, then rejuvenation may be the answer.
Ayurveda is a life science which has always stressed the preventive aspect of health and recommended various aspects of it. Rejuvenation is one such aspect. It is a process of bringing back the lost strength, vitality, vigour and thereby improving overall wellbeing. This will help to minimise the chance of disease in the future.
Ayurveda Village introduces its Rejuvenation Packages to help you experience rejuvenation in its true sense.

Home Grown: An Introduction to Permaculture allows attendees to explore a more sustainable and regenerative way of life. The retreat offers a delicious weekend set in the beautiful Southern Highlands for those that want a taste of permaculture through hands-on learning in the garden, learning the skills they need to easily begin growing your own edible garden at home.
Guests will be part of a small group, with their hands in the dirt during the day, whilst enjoying luxury accommodation and food direct from the garden prepared by Springfield’s incredible Chef, Eilish. Attendees will learn about the basic concepts of permaculture as they benefit from Farmer Pete’s 30 years’ experience as both an inspirational leader and a passionate hobby farmer.
