PATONGA, CENTRAL COAST, NSW.
A small fishing village surrounded by National Park on the Central Coast of NSW
Only one and a half hours drive from Sydney.
The house is owned by an interior designer. It is spacious and perfect for running retreats. It has lots of decks and lots of views of water or lush vegetation. A large lounge area with wood burning stove. Dining inside and out and a separate yoga studio with white polished floors and soaring ceilings.
The reviews describe the retreat so much better than I can.
An amazing, healthy and calming birthday present to myself. Don't know where to begin....Julie is a fabulous host and yoga teacher, very calm and friendly. The house
is so beautiful, open and airy. I loved the comfy bed upstairs and restful nights sleep listening to the waves. This retreat with luxury accommodation, healthy veggo meals, 3 yoga classes per day along with workshops in a gorgeous coastal town is second to
none. Very well priced. I will be back.

Thank you for such a nurturing yoga retreat! The accommodation is perfect; everything from the comfy beds, the amazing view to the beautiful energy in the yoga room! The meals were delicious and so lovingly prepared. The practice you offered was wonderful and I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to attend. Keeping these retreats running is a very special gift that you share!!!

Thank you for a great retreat. Good food and company a gentle nurturing approach to yoga that also allows so much space for learning new things. The sesame oil self massage was a great experience and savasana on a bolster was also a revelation.
I hope we can come again.
