Yoga Retreat in North Queensland

Yoga Teachers Cairns

 “So much more than a yoga retreat! Our retreats are transformational, high vibrational, heart led experiences that bring people from all walks of life together to rest and restore in nature.”

– Beth Hartig

Friday 12th May- Tuesday 16th May 2023 (4 nights) at Castaways Resort, Mission Beach

Join Hartig Yoga for this beautiful retreat and opportunity to dive into your heart space.

Over 4 days we will practice Yoga (Vinyasa and Hatha in the morning, Yin and Restorative in the evenings), Meditation, Breath work and Mantra (chanting) to connect back to Anahata, the heart center and back to our truest state, which is LOVE.

About The Retreat

In our unique 4 day yoga retreat we will practice Yoga, Meditation, Breath work and specialised workshops to connect to the heart space

We will provide morning and evening yoga sessions each day, as well as little workshops spread throughout the retreat to connect to the theme. There is plenty for time to relax and be alone, as well as with the group.

What People Are Saying

“Beth is an amazing wealth of knowledge and wisdom.  A real person who loves what she does and loves sharing it with others.  I highly recommend her yoga retreats to anyone and everyone – what a journey. I will certainly be back for more- the solitude and tranquility was pure bliss”.


Kelly Dicton – Townsville

“I highly recommend Hartig Yoga’s retreats. Words really cannot describe what I got out of being on the retreat.  Beth is absolutely phenomenal and if you’re not an experienced yogi (like me) it doesn’t matter at all.  Self love, me time, soul searching or simply relaxing- whatever you choose to go on retreat for – Hartig Yoga is a must do!”

Kylie O'Brian - Cairns

“A wonderful experience to nourish the soul and fill your heart with new friends.  This is my 2nd retreat with Beth and both were fabulous.  I would certainly recommend these retreats to take 5 days out to nurture yourself and  connect with other fabulous souls.” 


Luisa - Cairns

“I was fortunate enough to attend a retreat with Hartig Yoga and can honestly say I did not want to leave.  Everything was so well planned and beautifully put together and I could not fault a single thing! Beth is an amazing yoga teacher and a genuinely kind and beautiful soul inside and out.  She brings a contagious energy to all of her practices and you will always leave feeling uplifted”.


Louise Buchanan – Cairns

“The May 2022 ‘Come Home to Your Heart’ retreat was nothing short of amazing! Beth and Amber working together in harmony to give us the best experience.  From Sunrise yoga practice, Yin Yoga, Nidra, Restorative, Cacao ceremony, Sound Healing, Silence day, Journalling, Home made candles, delicious food, massages and all enjoyed in the company of beautiful humans…everything was awesome!  Cannot wait for the next retreat. It truly made me feel on top of the world”

Brigitte O'Brien Schmid - Cairns

“I have just come from Beth’s yoga retreat in Mission Beach. It was so wonderful, i have come away changed for the better. There were so many brilliant and unexpected things about this retreat. I went alone, not knowing anyone, and have come away with a genuine feeling of being valued and loved.  I am used to learning with my head, but have now experienced how to learn with my heart.  It was fun, warm, welcoming, adventurous, think rainforests and cassowaries, delicious food, inclusive and just about the best thing I have done in so long” 

Ali - Sunshine Coast

Retreat Pricing

We have a few different pricing options available depending on whether you would like to share with a friend/partner (and you are both participating in the retreat) OR whether you just want a private room to yourself.  You can also choose between a Rainforest Hotel Room or a Beachfront Room.  We will explain these two options and the pricing below.
