The Retreat
Mana Hinterland Culinary Retreat harnesses the ancient principles of yoga to teach us how to move though life with balance and enjoyment of all the things we love without over indulging, feeling guilty or overcommitting ourselves to the point of breaking.

The vegetarian cooking class are clever and out of the box… not your typical tofu barbecue... the meat loving partner will be truly surprised.
The yoga will dive deep into principles of philosophy and yogic history while we move our bodies in the geodesic yoga dome nestled in the bamboo forest.
The massages in our forest treatment rooms will remind us to slow down and take a moment for ourselves when we have pushed too far.
The Location

Just 10 minutes from the heart of Byron Bay, 22 acres of lush rainforest awaits you for an immersive holistic experience for 16 guests. We want you to feel at home, share communal meals on our seven-metre-long dining table, share stories around the fire pit, receive teaching in the exceptional geodesic dome, swim in the freshwater infinity pool and walk through the lush bamboo and lychee forests on the property.

The accomodation is modern and beautiful with bespoke artwork, soft linen bedding and architectural designs to please the eye. This retreat was created to be a truely tantalising experience for all the senses. 

The Food
Forget everything you thought you knew about cooking + entertaining. Chef Evan White elevates your culinary game through a variety of classes that are hands on and relevant to the Australian kitchen. Despite working in some of London, Florence and Sydney’s best restaurants (including Nobu Park Lane, Harvey’s, White House, Lumiere), Evan considers the time he spent with grassroots cooks and kitchens in Mexico to be what made him the chef he is today. For this we can thank his fun and intelligent approach to food. You can expect classes like Lifting Your Kitchen Game, Unbelievable Substitutions, Mindful Pairing + Theming and classes inspired by his favourite restaurants around the world.

The Yoga
Our mission is to ignite your inner fire with class styles that allow your body to strengthen and thrive in every pose. All classes take place in our forest engulfed geodesic dome. Morning classes are strong and invigorating with deep and relaxing savasanas. Evening classes wind down the day with slower flows + yoga nidra to provide deep restoration of the muscles with systematic, guided breath control for relaxation. Our dome is equipped with high quality props and is open to you for self-practice at any time. Our other activities include swimming laps in our freshwater pool, massage, cosmetic acupuncture treatments in our forest treatment rooms + cooking classes .

This retreat is for the person who love to cook, learn, get involved and try new things. For the person who loves fine food and bespoke experiences. For the person who wants a good dose of nature with a 5 star twist. For the person who loves to indulge... but without over doing it. This retreat is for the fun and creative open minded, who enjoys the company of other like minds.
