About This Event



The foundation of our practice will centre on cultivating awareness with breath, body, mind, emotions, spirit. Forging pathways to clarity and honouring our intuitive intelligence of reclaiming our innate wisdom. We will delve deep into a daily practice of Ashtanga yoga. Gregor Maehle says that Ashtanga yoga is "one of the authentic representations of Patanjali's sutra that is still alive today". The morning practice will be a beautiful blend of Kriya yoga (cleansing), Pranayama (breathing techniques), Mantra (chanting) and healing Asana (poses). All poses can be approached to accommodate different levels of practitioners. Be prepared to sweat, to laugh and to embrace transformation. Your morning practice will strengthen your passion for yoga and inspire you to deepen your commitment to yoga and ultimately to yourself. 

This class will vary in duration from 2 to 3 hours daily. You'll love it!



Meditation is about cultivating a kind and clear presence of being. Adriana presents an eclectic and creative expression of approaching stillness that is her own unique form of meditation. She draws from her 30+ years as a yogi and offers very traditional techniques that will deeply change how you feel about stillness. We specifically work towards grasping clarity of mind. Each day we will build on from the previous to explore techniques to enrich your approach to meditation. Meditation is the science of where to place your focus.
Being on retreat means giving yourself time to grasp how to bring meditation into your world daily. It's magical!

This class will be offered for the duration of 1.5 hours daily.



Within this retreat you are treated to a three-hour snorkelling adventure of swimming with turtles. We will also visit an exhilarating waterfall on Lombok island where your prana (energy) will go through the roof.

"Going on retreat with Adriana is magical. It's an amazing experience of going deeper with your yoga practice as well as having a really relaxing time away. I love retreats with Adriana. She brings me back to me again. Thank you." Terri

      Master of retreats

    I was lucky enough to attend Adriana's amazing Fiji retreat last October/November. I was relatively new to yoga but that did not matter at all. Adriana and my fellow retreat yogis were so knowledgeable and supportive which really helped my with my practice. Adriana had thoughtfully organised the retreat to the last detail. From sunrise beach meditation to paddle boarding through picturesque waterways of Savu Savu. I highly recommend booking in a retreat with Adriana!

      Adriana's retreat

    Adriana's 30 plus years as a yogi was evident as she guided and held us through the expansion of our yoga and meditation practice. Mind, body and soul was completely rejuvinated. Great food and great company. Loved the whole experience.

    I started my yoga experience 3 years ago on a weekend retreat with this beautiful soul. I was hooked. Each year since then I have followed her on an annual overseas retreat and believe me when I say, I am transformed every single time! Adriana intuitively knows what each of us need, even if we don’t know it ourselves. Time away with her is inspiring, creative, heart warming and soul feeding. Exactly what I am looking for! A rewarding experience every single time.

      Retreat with Adriana Cortazzo

    I will be heading to Bali for my 3rd retreat with this incredible woman. Each experience has been a new awakening into a place of peace and bliss. Adriana leads you with a kind but firm hand into a greater understanding of your body and mind. I leave these retreats with a renewed body, a clear mind and a soaring heart! Can’t wait for the next one. A truly inspirational experience

Thank you!

We're glad you've joined our retreat community. See you around :)
