Weekend Escape * Blue Mountains * 28-30 June


  • Vanam Retreat Centre 127 Darling Causeway Mount Victoria, NSW, 2786 Australia (map)

A weekend escape for revitalising tired mums.
Take time for yourself and refill your cup - in the end, our kids don’t want the perfect Mum, they want a happy one!

Join us in this 3-day, 2 night weekend wonderland escape at Vanam Retreat Centre in the Blue Mountains. Nestled in a little pocket overlooking the Blue Mountains, your private boutique accommodation is the perfect weekend escape from a busy Sydney life!

From Mums to Mums, we invite you to slow down, take space to listen and connect to the authentic you.

There will be nourishment on all levels - with daily Vinyasa Flow and Yin yoga classes, inspirational workshops, and hands-on coaching tools on how to deal more powerfully with your life. Enjoy nutritional organic vegetarian meals and the support of like-minded Mums, sharing a safe space to chat, exchange and chill together.

Surrounded by bushland, stunning views and kookaburras, this weekend is all about YOU:

Join everything we offer, or just as much as you like, unwind in nature with a long walk or in front of the fire place with a book, and make the whole weekend about pampering yourself.

In my classes, I strive to create a loving and safe environment with a healthy balance between workout, fun, discovery and relaxation. I love practising and sharing different styles of movement - from Vinyasa to AcroYoga and Yin, each tradition has its own gems."
