 Illuminate: Shine Your Light Retreat

This 3 Day Yoga Retreat will guide you on the path of relaxation, self discovery and a rekindling of the radiant joy within your heart. 

This is so much more than a yoga retreat. This is a transformational, high vibrational and heart led experience set in the tropical paradise of Mission Beach, FNQ.

During the retreat Beth Hartig and Sarah McDonala will provide you with Yoga, Meditation and Breath work sessions as well as specialised workshops to facilitate inner illumination and radiance.

Sometimes things happen in life and we loose connection to our inner joy and that which makes us feel fully alive. This retreat will help you to connect to that again!

 Where is Eco Village?

We have found the perfect venue for a yoga retreat near Cairns… This retreat is held at Eco Village Resort, which is a unique rainforest and beachfront eco-lodge (nestled halfway between Townsville and Cairns).

Eco Village is nestled between Clump point and the very north end of Mission Beach. 

Built in the rainforest, you get the best of Rainforest and beach at this incredible resort.  Eco Village has beautiful gardens and a large swimming pool for us the keep cool in as well as direct access to a PRIVATE beach and direct access to the north end of Mission Beach. 

And, our Yoga shala faces the private beach.. it’s absolutely stunning!

Yoga Retreats in Australia

Who are these retreats for?

Our retreats are for anybody that just needs to take some time out of daily life, and get back to nature.
To clear and recharge your energy.
And to connect to other like-minded people from all walks of life.
You will be amazed and how different you will feel after 3 days in this amazing space.
The yoga practices will be beginner to intermediate level, so we will meet you where ever you are in your practice.  We have had some people on our retreats who haven’t done yoga for a very long time, and some who practice regularly, so we design our classes and workshops with everyone in mind.  
Sharing these practices with you at Yoga retreats in Mission Beach is our passion. We put our whole hearts into every aspect of the experience, so that you can come away feeling open, connected and seen.

What People Are Saying

“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

“I’ve been lucky enough to participate in two wonderful retreats by Hartig Yoga. We were treated to Cacao, dance and sound healing as well as excellent yoga and meditation sessions. I came back calm, refreshed and full of self love. Definitely worth nourishing your soul with any of Beth’s offerings.”

Lesley Postle

“This retreat had the perfect balance of activities, free time and group socializing. The yoga was accessible to a range of levels and was well explained. The cacao ceremony, sound meditation, sunrise meditation and other planned experiences were uplifting and transformative for many of us. Add to these experiences the wonderful food and setting for the retreat, and the four days were just amazing. Meeting and connecting with others from all over Australia was also a highlight as stories and lives were shared during mealtimes and free time activities. The wisdom and serene presence of Beth and Sarah as our teachers and facilitators of the retreat was also a blessing! I highly recommend taking time out of your busy life to slow down and give yourself the gift of attending a Hartig Yoga retreat. Your body, heart, mind and soul will thank you!”

Sharon Kelly

“I recently attended one of Beth’s retreats at Mission Beach. I am definitely not someone who is a yoga regular, and had never attended a retreat before so was unsure what to expect. What I got was the most wonderful weekend of joy, laughter, cathartic tears as a bunch of us came together under Beth’s warm guidance. I can hand on heart say that was one of the best experiences I have ever had and am continuing my yoga practice via Beth’s online classes as I am now addicted. Thanks Beth (and Sarah) for your kindness, patience, stellar yoga practice coaching – especially for this beginner! I will definitely be back”
