“I feel grounded, energised, happy and clear-headed. Just like having spent three days with beautiful, shining people doing yoga by the beach. Thanks for putting it together. You guys are amazing!!!”
“I feel blissful and inspired to increase my practice across all yogic endeavours. I’m relaxed through to my deepest core and am able to be more in tune with who I am and who I wish to be!”
“As always, beautiful, magical and spiritual. At the end it’s a mix of tiredness and happiness. The spirit of India in Somers!”
“Content, restored, I loved the retreat, connecting with old friends and the sense of community of like-minded people thinking about the way I practice and live my life, also NOT thinking about my life but having time to be in the present and look inwards.”
“Fantastic. Relaxed. Calm. A little sore. Happy. The people were all amazing and the not-for-profit charitable intention is incredible. THANK YOU.”
“I have nothing to complain about because this is like the best weekend I’ve ever had!!! I had a wonderful time during the retreat, met some great teachers and like-minded people. I will definitely come back for the next retreat!!!”
“Beautiful people, very open to sharing their kindness, knowledge and love! I loved all the classes and food and fun activities in the evenings and really appreciated the no technology vibe and observing silence after 10pm.”
“It was my first time at Yogafest and I loved it. It was one of the most well organised considerate events I have been to and I work in events. I don’t have any big feedback to give on how the event can be improved. Brilliant teachers, wonderful people and a generous kind and lovely environment to spend time in. Thank you!!”

Presented by Dance of Life: Centre for Yoga and Healing, Yogafest Retreat Somers brings together some of Melbourne’s most committed and experienced teachers. Each retreat is held at the Lord Somers Camp right on the edge of the sea on Victoria’s beautiful Mornington Peninsula, only 60 minutes from the Melbourne CBD.
Since its inception, Yogafest Retreat Somers has been run purely by volunteers, with all money raised going directly to the charitable humanitarian work of Mata Amritanandamayi (Amma). Check out our upcoming program for our next Yoga Retreat Somers!
All classes and workshops presented at each Yogafest Retreat Somers are lead by a team of highly experienced and dedicated yoga and wellbeing professionals, all of whom have an association with Dance Of Life, Fitzroy, either as past or current teachers. The teachers design each Yogafest Retreat Somers together and plan and shape classes to offer new learnings, to share deep insights and to ensure that all participants are warmly welcomed.

We recognise and respect their cultural heritage, beliefs and relationship with the land and waters which continue to be important to the Boon Wurrung / Bunurong people.
