Byron Bay

A Retreat Experience Like No Other.


The Byron Bay retreat is a perfect opportunity to give back to yourself and recharge the batteries. Gary’s retreats have become legendary over the years and this particular retreat is a very unique offering. For 5 days you’ll be immersed in a transformational program that brings together a full range of holistic modalities designed to rejuvenate the body, heal the mind and awaken your consciousness.

The setting is not bad either, you’ll be staying at SOMA Gary’s very own purpose built retreat sanctuary which is only 10 minutes out of Byron on 22 lush acres. Numbers are strictly limited so if you’d like to take part then register your interest now.

The Retreat Program: Each participant will experience a unique and holistic program consisting of; Ayurvedic cleansing and rejuvenation practices. Sound Healing Therapy, Advanced Pranayama. Yoga Therapy and the legendary process of ‘Rounding’.

For the unfamiliar ‘Rounding’ is an advanced system which combines a specific Yoga Asana sequence (physical postures), Pranayama (Yogic breathing technique) Meditation and Shavasana (integration technique) which serves to prepare the mind for the deepest possible dive in meditation.

Throughout the retreat we will bathe in Vedic philosophy and profound practices. You’ll come away refreshed mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually, but more importantly have obtained practical tools that will enable you to develop higher consciousness and enrich all corners of your everyday life.

The Benefits
: The whole program is so intelligently designed that it will dissolve years of stress and brings the equivalent benefit of 12 months daily meditation in only 5 days!! This is not hype, but an assurance.

Accommodation: For the duration of the retreat we will be staying SOMA. There is complete privacy on this acreage and the venue boasts a yoga shala, infinity pool, bamboo forest, firepit, rainforest, rolling hills, organic garden that we’ll be harvesting each day for part of our meals.

All participants will have their own private rooms with ensuites and air conditioning. Each day you’ll be immersed in a profound program that will likely include enjoying time out in some of the exquisite natural gems of this region, the rainforests, canyons, waterholes, sacred sites, beaches and more.
