Byron Bay Retreat

January 13-17, 2024

Escape. Connect. Move.

Are you ready for a retreat experience like no other? K-FORMA We Move Pilates-Barre and Yoga Retreat is coming to Byron Bay, Australia. This is your opportunity to reconnect, reestablish and re-inspire the way you move - through life. 

Set amidst the lush, vibrant rainforest of Byron Bay, our retreat unfolds in Soma, a purpose-built sanctuary designed to nourish your mind and body from the inside out. Here, you'll dive into a diverse range of activities tailored to all skill levels, from daily Pilates & Yoga classes to nourishing, whole food meals prepared by expert chefs, and tranquil evenings by the fire under the starlit sky. You'll stay in luxurious accommodation, complete with rainforest showers and breathtaking views of the Byron hinterland.

This is more than just a retreat; it's a space where you can unwind, let go, and just BE. Join us on this transformative journey as we move, breathe, connect, and celebrate life together in this magical location.

Soma is a purpose-built oasis set on 22 acres of rainforest in the Byron Bay hinterland. Only 10 minutes from Byron Bay and 15 minutes from Mullumbimby, Soma feels a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Feel at home, share communal meals at the seven-metre-long dining table, share stories around the fire pit, receive teaching in the exceptional geodesic dome, swim in the freshwater infinity pool and walk through the lush bamboo and lychee forests on the property. Trust us, you'll never want to leave.

Rooms

You will be staying in the rooms on the Soma property. There are 10 bedrooms in total, all with a private ensuite and rainforest shower. Expansive windows showcase the Byron hinterland and Soma rainforest and allow you to revel in the beauty of the grounds. Each room includes 100% linen bedspreads, beach towels, and A/C and heating units.

There are 3 different rooms options available:

Private room: Sleeps 1 person. One king bed all to yourself!

Double room: Sleeps 2 people. Two separate beds.

Shared room: Sleeps 2 people. One king bed.

Meals

Drawing from the richness of local Australian produce and Ayurvedic principles, retreat meals will feature flavourful, seasonal, veggie-centric dishes. You can expect a variety of wholesome meals, thoughtfully prepared to complement the rhythm of the retreat and your personal well-being. Expect seasonal soups warmed with farm-fresh spices, salads bursting with colours of the local harvest, and slow-fermented sourdough slathered with homemade ghee. Come hungry and leave with your belly and heart full.

Experiences

Guests at the retreat will be treated to a range of engaging experiences, including an authentic pasta workshop.

Run by fourth-generation Italian chef Daniela Maiorano, this is more than just a class, it's an immersive experience in Italian culinary traditions. You'll learn to create spaghetti, tortellini, and orecchiette from scratch, discover age-old pasta secrets and master the perfect al dente texture. Afterwards, we'll enjoy a beautiful shared Italian lunch savouring the fruits of your labor. You'll leave with new skills, new recipes, and lots of laughs!
