Autumn indulgence for intermediate yogis to reinvigorate, relax and enjoy. 

Join senior Iyengar Yoga Teacher Frank Jesse for our first ever retreat specifically for intermediate to advanced students of yoga.

Your chance to progress your yoga practice with a focus on inversions and backbends. You will get to learn how to teach inversions and how to safely drop back into a full backbend.

We have listened to your feedback to developed this special retreat that is suitable for teachers and students. You will be re-energised and refreshed by the inspiration and challenge of this wonderful six-day immersion in yoga, food and relaxation.


Between your daily yoga practices and our scrumptious gourmet meals, 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. 

 “Frank is a world class yoga teacher and his classes are always full of laughter. Griffins Hill grows  and prepares it's delicious meals which leave you glowing with health and energy. If you are ever feeling tired or beleaguered, give yourself the gift of a few days here: it will restore your spirits and set you on the path to a healthier life. Highly recommended!!! Trish L, Pune

We were recently featured on an independent travel website,  Here’s what Jenifer Adam’s wrote about us:

"During my visit, I join a group of people who are midway through a seven-day retreat. They hail from all over Australia and most have traveled specifically to be here. For some, it is their second or third time here. Yoga is not the only attraction at Griffins Hill, though. Jane caters to the groups with a “paddock to plate” food philosophy."  


 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.

What do others think of Griffins Hill accommodation?

 "With its’ five-star accommodation, Griffins Hill remains a gracious home away from home for me and I am both renewed and inspired by my retreats to this wonderfully hospitable and friendly rural sanctuary". David 

"Apart from the yoga sessions, there are splendid surroundings to explore on foot or to appreciate from a more relaxed position. Inside the Griffins Hill homestead, a sense of light and space pervades, and the guest-rooms far surpassed my humble yogic expectations. Much has been written about the excellent food provided – I can only agree wholeheartedly with every word- and look forward to my next visit. Thank you, Jane and Frank!" Matina from Greece
