You are invited to join us for three nights and four days dedicated to self love, connection, deep nurture and nourishment.
Take time out from your usual roles and responsibilities to refill your cup.
Our Autumn Retreat is designed with great care to support you to rest, reconnect and revitalise. Our intention is to offer you some delicious you-time, with ripple effects you'll feel in your life for weeks and months to come.
18th - 21st May 2023
We start at 7pm on Thursday 18th May. You may arrive any time from 4pm.*
The retreat ends at 11am on Sunday 21st May.
The retreat is on Dja Dja Wurrung country, in the lovely town of Trentham, approximately one hour's drive from Melbourne.
We are staying in two adjacent homes set within lush country gardens. It's a beautiful, peaceful setting, ideal for a relaxing getaway.
We are a short walk from the town centre, so you can wander in for a coffee or to browse the local shops.
* A light supper on Thursday night, all meals and snacks on Friday and Saturday, and Sunday morning breakfast.
* Accommodation (private single or twin-share room).
* Daily yoga, meditation and reflection sessions (These will be gentle sessions. No prior experience needed.)
* Plenty of time and space for reading, naps, walks and enjoying the tranquil setting.
* Optional addition of a relaxing massage (additional fee)
Note: transport to and from the retreat is not included.
Our intention is for you to leave the retreat feeling rested, rejuvenated, and connected with Mother Nature, a loving community, and yourself.
The retreat will be facilitated by Annie Carter, assisted by Lou Anderson.

Here's an idea of what you can expect...
Arrive any time from 4pm to settle in and let the unwinding begin.
You can eat dinner before you arrive, or head into town for a meal. We'll officially start the retreat at 8pm with a grounding yin yoga practice, before heading off to bed.
Friday & Saturday
We'll begin each day at 8:30am with slow flow yoga, pranayama and meditation, followed by a yummy brekkie.
Spend the rest of the morning, into the afternoon, as you choose. Have a snooze, curl up with a book, wander into town, or head out for a walk in the nearby forest. If you're opted for a massage, we'll let you know what time you're booked in. Bliss!
Lunch will be available from 1pm, so help yourself when you're ready.
We'll come together again at 4:30pm for a relaxed workshop centred on your wellbeing and self care beyond the retreat. Use this time to reflect and reset, to cultivate a sense of clarity and ease going forward.
Dinner will be served at 6pm, followed by a gentle yin or restorative yoga practice. Float off to bed for a restful night's sleep.
Enjoy a final slow flow yoga, pranayama and meditation practice before breakfast, followed by a closing circle.
The retreat will finish at 11am.
You may wish to head home or spend the afternoon in the lovely surrounds of Trentham.
Is the retreat just for women?
Eve is a space for women and non-binary folk, and our Autumn Retreat is the same. It's a lovely opportunity to connect with others in a nurturing, peaceful environment.
Is this only for people who attend Eve Studio?
No, all women and nonbinary people are welcome to attend the retreat, whether or not you've been part of Eve up until now.
What if I don't know anyone?
That is totally fine! You are more than welcome to come alone. Rest assured you will be made to feel right at home. Really, it's a perfect opportunity to connect with some new people. Lasting friendships have been made at our previous retreats!
Can I share a room with my friend?
We will do our very best to accommodate room-sharing requests, so just let us know who you'd like to share with.
Can you accommodate my dietary needs?
Absolutely. Just make sure you let us know of your dietary needs so our caterer can prepare yummy meals just for you. Most of the meals are already vegetarian, gluten-free and delicious!
Do I need to be fit, flexible or experienced in yoga?
Not at all. Our yoga sessions will be gentle and can be adapted for all abilities. You will be just right, exactly as you are.
What if I need to cancel my booking?
