‘Coming back again, I knew what to expect: the variety of teachers, diversity in learning, amazing food, great mix of people; I was able to ‘unpack’ really quickly from a full-on week. Fun, calm perfect’ (RC)

Welcome to CY Yoga and Meditation Retreat, Feb 2025.

Our  2023 retreats were  fully booked and we love providing incredible experiences on the Majestic Springbrook Mountain.

We’re looking forward to another wonderful experience so book in now!

Take this opportunity to Escape into the tranquil forest of Springbrook (Gold Coast Hinterland) for a weekend of tranquility, Yoga, nature, meditation and wonderful food.

Allow yourself to be taken care of with a  beautiful group of like-minded people and choose your level of engagement.

We’ve developed a busy program so you are able to drop in and out of sessions and take what you need from the program. You can participate in all scheduled activities, simply give yourself some well-deserved space, silence, and “me-time” or any combination which suits your definition of ‘Retreat’.

  • Switch off your devices
  • Step away from the busy-ness of life
  • Melt into the simplicity of simply Being – with your body and your breath, nature and other beautiful people
  • Re-discover a deep connection to your body, your heart and nature
  • Be nourished by a private cook who will absolutely spoil you
  • Be surrounded by beautiful, tranquil surrounds to retreat into; including a towering waterfall with views to the horizon

Practise as much or as little Yoga as you like, enjoy beautiful vegetarian food, indulge in a massage or reiki, come into your quiet and allow yourself to gently unwind. Turn off your devices and step away from caring for everyone else, for some much needed ‘me time’.

Centenary Yoga are hosting our fourth retreat for our community and friends in a beautiful, natural space which is already very familiar to many of you.

We’ve planned this weekend to be a  respite from the”busy” of life – to reset and to calm your busy mind and sink into practise and silence in beautiful Springbrook National Park. It really is a gift in today’s crazy world.

 Location

One of the reasons guests return year after year is the location; to be surrounded by towering ancient trees and only the sounds of crickets and birds. The Mountain and old growth forest is such a powerful healer in a world where you are often disconnected from nature in your day-to-day lives. Pademelon wallabies are often spotted at dawn/dusk and sometimes during the day.
