Day Retreat: Full Or Half

Are you short on time and cannot join us for the whole weekend. Join us for your special full or half day retreat. You will be surrounded by the tranquillity of nature, and rediscover your inner essence. This is a chance to escape the demands of everyday life and immerse yourself in a restorative experience, sharing the journey with like-minded individuals who seek wellness and self-care.

Give yourself the gift of rejuvenation, serenity, and transformation.

Unwind, recharge, and reconnect with your inner self in a nurturing space that allows you to experience harmony and balance in both your physical and mental realms. Start your journey with a grounding linage based yoga session led by Dave, who will guide you through a series of gentle asana/poses and mindful movements. Build strength, breath, and balance while cultivating a deep sense of inner peace and harmony. Dave will tailor the classes to accommodate all skill levels, ensuring everyone experiences the benefits of this ancient practice. An able-moving body is required.


Now its your time to have a cleansing and invigorating infrared sauna followed by a swim in our natural spring flowing through 32 million old volcanic rocks. 

Through the day retreat, indulge in a wholesome, nutritious and delicious Ayurveda meal crafted by our Food Artist, Aune, Farm to Plate, made with love. Supported by the nourishing food, your body will be replenished, leaving you feeling energised and revitalised. During breaks, take a stroll through our food forest with 350-plus permaculture-designed fruit trees with over 50 varieties. Enjoy the enchanting natural surroundings, connect with the beauty of the environment, and find clarity in your mind. Or hangout in one of our hammocks by the creek and do nothing.


Go beyond space and time. Finish your day with the powerful healing vibration massage and sound therapy in our all-timber purpose-built sound shell. Allow yourself to be enveloped in the soothing sounds of ancient instruments, like singing bowls and gongs, expertly played. Experience a deep state of relaxation as the sound waves wash away stress and tension, leaving you feeling centred, rejuvenated, and aligned. Then join us for a cleansing herbal tea and home made sweets before making your way home.

After three incredible days at Mt. Jukes, I am grateful for the experience. My accommodations were perfect—a cozy wooden cabin surrounded by green mountains. The meals were outstanding, each one delicious and nourishing for both body and soul, lovingly prepared by the amazing Aune. You can truly taste the freshness of the ingredients grown right on the retreat grounds. The sessions led by Dave, from yoga and breathwork to the healing sound therapy, were exceptional and deeply enriching. I left feeling peaceful and equipped with valuable tools to continue this healthy and fulfilling routine in my daily life. Thank you, Dave and Aune, for this unforgettable experience!

What can I say this place is fantastic. I had the most wonderful time at the Mothers day Retreat. From the Sauna to the cool refreshing creek, Yoga practice, AMAZING Food, Sound Healing practice. This was one fantastic day. The location, the program, the people, the food. In the hectic lifestyle we lead, this was the perfect way to spend to calm your mind, connect with nature and yourself. Mackay is so lucky to have such a top quality retreat right in our own backyard. This may have been my first retreat, but it will not be my last. Thank you so much

About Your Teacher

Dave did his teacher training in Bali, where he studied Tantra/Hatha, a lineage-based yoga over 2500 years old, not altered for the audience in the modern world.

"Meditation is one of the main goals of yoga. The best gauge of your yoga practice is how well your life is going. Are you happy, vibrant, and in good health, mentally, physically and emotionally? This is the science of yoga. Be the best version of yourself to live with infinite possibilities. Yoga is built for optimum well-being, not flexibility."
