A place to feel whole. Deśa Retreat is a place by the sea for seekers of yoga, healing, surf breaks, eco-stays, classes, courses, studio hire, plant-based cuisine and workshops. Surrounded by the serene coastline of Jan Juc, near Torquay, on the renowned Surf Coast of Victoria.

Nestled in nature at the gateway of Victoria”™s Great Ocean Road, the property features two Eco-Villas and a Tiny House, and each can accommodate up to four people (or 12 people in all).

Deśa Retreat is the perfect escape for singles, couples, or small groups.

Your host, Emma, will welcome you and share yogic teachings, wholesome, home-grown food, and whole-body nature-based experiences that stir the soul into conscious action.

Deśa Retreat offers a range of beautifully handcrafted retreats all year round. So, take this sacred time for yourself and reconnect and align to your values, nature, and all aspects of self, returning to a state of feeling whole.
