If you're looking for an effortless getaway that leaves a deep and lasting impression, why not (re)treat and nourish with yoga teacher YuMee Chung and raw chef Maria Mancuso? We've teamed up to deliver the yoga and culinary experiences you seek, and then some. Our mandate is simple, to offer a cosy, unbuttoned retreat experience coupled with seamless service so you can kick back and immerse yourself in the sweetness of the present moment.

Our yoga offering is all about self-care and nurturing for the nervous system. Think meditation, self-massage from toes to nose, expansive breath-work, and juicy asana, all expertly guided and offered at a leisurely pace. We will soothe tense muscles, access deep fascial release, lubricate joints and breathe new life into body and mind. Don't let our relaxed attitude fool you, the skills we introduce will have a lasting impact on the way you move, breathe and sleep, and they will serve you well for years to come.

Our culinary offering consists of plant-based cuisine that is exquisite in flavour and artful in its presentation. We will emphasize the use of whole, entirely raw, organic, unprocessed, plant-based foods to achieve healthy, visually refined, flavourful cuisine. Awaken your body and discover true health while embracing cold pressed juices and colourful raw meals that work in harmony with the earth and naturally re-charge the body, making you feel energized, glowing and alive.
