Easter Retreat

Incredible yoga, food and relaxation for three nights and four days. Between your daily yoga practices, there's plenty of time to explore Dunkeld, the Grampians and surrounds. You’ll be walking, cycling and swimming, sampling tasty treats at our local cafés and restaurants, or simply reading and chilling out in the spacious comfort of our architect-designed retreat.

We offer only ONE four-day retreat each year. You will be taught by internationally-renowned and fully-accredited senior yoga teacher, Frank Jesse, who has taught and practiced yoga for more than 45,000 hours over 25 years. Frank has trained directly with BKS Iyengar, the founder of Iyengar yoga, and started the highly-successful Clifton Hill Yoga Studio.

Between classes, you will dine on superb vegetarian cuisine made from Griffins Hill's extensive organic garden with other local products from the Grampians. Suitable for all ages and levels.



Griffins Hill offers luxurious mountain view rooms with heating, cooling, electric blankets, free Wi-Fi, tea or coffee making facilities and en-suite bathrooms. (no TV). Choose from a king, queen or twin share room with spacious en-suite facilities and superb mountain views. Or you can enjoy the privacy of your own luxurious queen or king room with en-suite facilities and indulge in your own mountain view with the sunrise.
