Founded by Jessie Chapman in 2000, Radiance Retreats is one of the most established retreat wellness brands in the world.
If you enjoy twice-daily yoga, beach walks, meditation, healing spa treatments and nature immersions then Radiance Retreat is for you. Every day on a Radiance Retreat is an inspired journey towards your relaxed and energised self. Immerse in twice daily yoga, daily guided beach and nature walks, all organic meals and juices, massage, core strength classes, restoration yoga, meditation, yoga nidra and a range of other healing art classes for inspiration and renewal.
Yoga-wise, Jessie’s morning Radiance Yoga classes combine gentle warm up and limbering sequences with Vinyasa yoga, core awareness and working in postures longer to cultivate strength, flexibility, alignment, clarity and stillness. The afternoon classes focus on cultivating deep rest with lots of restorative yoga sequences and practices. Classes also include breathing techniques, sitting in stillness and guided relaxation.
Located within walking distance from Byron’s stunning beaches, you stay in a beautifully furnished guestroom. Amenities include an ozone swimming pool, large wooden floor yoga hall, lush gardens, nature trails, ocean views, a range of indoor and outdoor relaxation spaces and The Healing Spa Room offering holistic spa treatments during the retreat.
What we love
Everyone is welcome and well cared for with lots of one-on-one attention, nourishing adjustments and support. Jessie now offers both private and online classes so there’s no more excuses not to do yoga! She can tailor these to individuals and small groups.
What’s not to love
Currently Radiance Retreats is not operating in destinations including New Zealand, Bali and Europe – sigh!
