Two Night Stay Retreat at the Heart & Soul


I just came back home from the most glorious two days retreat at the Heart & Soul.

Heart & Soul in only one hour away from Sydney, and it is a very convenient getaway for a luscious weekend, a relaxing week-long stay or a month-long complete lifestyle reset.

It was my first ever retreat and I have to say that my expectations were exceeded. It is a place to relax, staying close to nature, practice Yoga, meditate and nourish your body with delicious Ayurvedic foods.

Heart & Soul offers all-inclusive yoga & wellness getaways with a very organised schedule and plenty of activities to join in. All levels and different methods of Yoga three times per day, daily Workshops and Kirtans. You can check here, their daily retreat program.

All activities are optional and even if you opt for doing everything, which was my case, you still have a bit of free time to wander and explore around the area.


Heart & Soul is located into the mountains of the Royal National Park and bordered by a beautiful creek, completely surrounded by nature, with many walking trails to explore and wander around. There are a variety of wild life (I saw parrots, kookaburras, cockatoos and even a herd of deers), gorgeous trees and you can get to watch an espetacular sunrise by the beach. The relaxed and nurturing energy of the valley is the perfect place to unwind, heal and connect.

Food for the body and soul - This was the highlight to me. Delicious, freshly made, organic, plant based food.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included at the package. the meals provided are all completely cruelty-free, based on the ancient Vedic principle of ahimsa (Sanskrit: non-violence), prepared in a consciousness of loving service.

Always when traveling I struggle to find food that tastes like my homemade meals, and also an establishment that makes sure that I feel comfortable and secure about no risk of cross contamination in regards my food requirements (Gluten Free). Heart and Soul has ticked all the boxes.

They offer a variety of accommodation types for every schedule and budget. I stayed in one of their queen bed ensuite room for a few private relaxing days by myself. If you are coming with a few friends or family, you can choose to stay in one of their queen + single ensuite rooms as well as 4-share rooms with shared facilities.

Thanks Heart & Soul for the most blissful and reinvigorate experience. I’ll definitely be back and highly recommend the experience to everyone looking for a quick getaway around Sydney to spoil themselves and their loved ones, to unwind, heal and connect.
