About this retreat

Winter represents going within, a time of rest and reflection. We are delighted to invite you to experience an authentic and deeply transformational women’s yoga retreat held during the Winter Solstice – a powerful point of stillness and introspection before the Sun’s strength builds, and days grow longer.

Our Winter Solstice Retreat is set in the lush mountains surrounding Maleny, right in the heart of the Sunshine Coast hinterland and will offer many practices of awareness to deepen your understanding of your mind, body and spirit. Take time out to nourish yourself amongst a group of like-minded women, engage in practices of awareness and rest in the peaceful mountain surrounds. Yoga, meditation & ceremonial offerings will provide opportunities to rest, replenish and connect deeply with ourselves.

Set on 300 acres of pristine hinterland, The Ridge at Maleny offers architecturally designed, Scandinavian inspired luxury mountain cabins and villas, perched high on the ridge with breathtaking views across the valley. Reconnect with nature and enjoy a variety of activities, from hiking along the many walking tracks, picnicking in the bunya forest, to bathing in the Mary River.

Featured Teachers

Your guides over the four days include senior yoga teachers’ Jaimee Shillitoe (I AM. Yoga Centre), Sonja Mapleston, fibre artist René Bahloo & sound therapist Caira Lavelle-Clack. Your meals will be lovingly prepared in-house by our favourite chef – Elaine Young of Yoke Kitchen, West End.


To celebrate today’s new moon we are offering an earlybird special $2,195 pp (twin-share mountain cabin with private room & bathroom) until March 6th. Places are limited to 16 women to keep it intimate. Book early to reserve your place.
