Top Yoga Retreats in Sydney for Wellness and Relaxation

When it comes to a great package of health, wellness, meditation, relaxation, and more, nothing beats the selection of top yoga retreats Sydney has to offer. When you need a break from the everyday grind, takes time to get away from it all with a short-term stay at one of the most highly rated yoga centers in this part of Australia.

Heart & Soul Retreats in Govinda Valley

Go on a Yoga holiday with the Heart & Soul Yoga Retreats without leaving Sydney. This non-profit community offers holistic retreat options for groups and individuals. From daily workshops to entire venue bookings, Govinda Valley has it all.

I’ve visited the Govinda Valley Retreat during a long weekend and it was a very family friendly place. It is no frills so don’t expect a luxurious place but rather a place to connect with nature, in the lap of beautiful bush land.


This Sydney meditation retreat is about one hour away from the airport or city center. You can also get here by train from the CBD to the Otford Station.

What Does It Offer?

Multiple yoga classes are held every day for people staying at this wellness retreat in Sydney or for incidental visitors. Govinda Valley also offers rotating workshops focused on life coaching, tai chi, astrology, and more. Specialty experiences like Forest Therapy Guide Training can be found on the website calendar.
