Lord Howe Island yoga retreat

Next Lord Howe Island retreat:



Every two years or so Peter takes a group to the World Heritage listed Lord Howe Island for a week.  This will be Peter's 14th trip there!


This beautiful location is the perfect place to relax and enjoy our practice of yoga and experience one of the world's most beautiful islands.  Only 400 people are allowed to visit Lord Howe at any one time so it is not crowded.  It is a nature lover's paradise with plenty of crystal clear beaches and lots of walking trails of various degrees of difficulty and distance.  Bird and sea life are in abundance! 


This retreat is limited to ten people plus Peter and his wife Kerri, and open to all levels of yoga experience.

Return Airfare and Twin Share (self - contained) Accommodation from Brisbane (seven days and seven nights)

Three Group Restaurant Dinners (other four nights free to do what you wish)

Two Organised Activities (snorkelling trip, and guided walk with island guide)

Last Retreat: 10-17 February 2019


The last Lord Howe Retreat (February 10-17, 2016) - we had another wonderful week of yoga, bushwalking, swimming, snorkelling and relaxing! Thankyou everyone for a most enjoyable week!  The company (my wife Kerri, Kim and Barbara, Joy, Elizabeth, Chris, Nicky, and Katie, and Matt and Bev) was wonderful.

Two of our group, Chris and Katie climbed Mt Gower on the only day it rained that week! This was quite a rewarding challenge however but by no means the main focus of the week. There were so many other wonderful experiences as well. The air temperature was I guess about 22 to 30 degrees celsius, and some days warmer, the visibilty for snorkelling was less than 20 metres as it was a bit breezy at times, although those sea breezes were appreciated. The snorkelling was still fun at several different snorkel spots by boat, plus walking of the beach at Ned's Beach, which was beautiful. We only had that one day of rain. The islanders would have liked more as they have been in drought for months.

Our group dinners at Beachcomber, The Golf Club, and at The Anchorage were great too! I think everyone enjoyed the food on the island. Not really much kingfish however which was unusual.  Because of the windy conditions and swells this year the boats couldn't go out as much.

A great time was had by everyone!  It was my fifteenth visit. As a World Heritage listed island, it is truly a unique place for a yoga retreat and for some time out with like-minded people.
