Yoga Jam Weekender – April 28 – 20, 2023

Yoga Jam Weekender

April 28 -30 , 2023

Take time for yourself with a short getaway this November at the Yoga Jam Weekender. Christian Ralston and Saul & Emilia from Soul Drummer have brought together all the components required to help you unwind and simply have an awesome time away. Time in nature, time with great people, high quality yoga, great food and killer music.

We will get together at Swami’s Retreat Center. This beautiful and secluded location extends to sixty acres of natural vegetation and perfectly offers that sense of being “away” while still being less than a one hour drive from Sydney. Apart from the stunning location Swami’s Retreat Center prides itself on providing excellent, clean, healthy nutrient dense food prepared in a way that supports optimum health and vitality. The Kitchen will provide delicious, vegetarian offerings with other dietary requirements easily accommodated.

The Yoga Jam Weekender is punching well above its weight providing exceptional value for money with the added benefits of not needing to travel too far (no need to get on a plane) and not needing to take time off work as it fits snuggly into a normal weekend.
