The Wombat Forest Wallaby Track Yogabout Getaway is ideal for those who want to escape from the city for a couple of days, who enjoy a walk that isn't too long, and want to improve their health and well being.

Over the weekend you will learn from an experienced yoga instructor techniques to quieten the mind, and be guided along two inspiring 8km and one 4km walk directly from your accommodation.

You will practice yoga daily, meditate, eat simple nutritious mostly organic food and stay at an authentic yoga ashram in the heart of Wombat State Forest, only 20 mins drive from Daylesford and 1 1/2 hr from Melbourne CBD.

Yoga practices will incorporate asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing), yoga nidra (relaxation), meditation, nada yoga (sound therapy - relaxing piano or sound bowls or didgeridoo), and forest bathing.
