A full moon yoga retreat in the beautiful Byron Bay Hinterland
with Delamay Devi
21 – 26 February 2024
If you’re seeking time out to rewild and reconnect to self through a tapestry of embodiment practices and sacred ritual under the illuminating light of the Full Moon, then this retreat is for you!
During our time together…
We’ll dive into the unique architecture of our extraordinary bodies through yoga asana, movement meditation, somatic awareness, embodied ritual and daily dance exploration. Together we align and live with the rhythms of nature through silent sunrise meditations, receiving nourishment from the foods we eat while taking time out for self care and self enquiry.
To dance the body mandala means to honour the sacred dance of every breath and every precious moment we have while alive! Each day we check in, we ground into whatever is arising and be open to the mystery while rejuvenating on the fertile surrounds of Bundjalung country. This retreat will uplift and inspire your embodiment journey while connecting you deeper to your heart fire!
Deep, deep gratitude to Delamay for creating the most beautiful, reenergising and blissful week, connecting once again with beautiful friends old and new!

As a yoga teacher and lover of movement and embodiment this retreat left me feeling deeply refreshed, inspired and ready to give my best again to my community. Delamay goes above and beyond in provide a safe and nurturing container for you to grow, rejuvenate, recharge and upskill your teaching, self-love and spiritual practices. I cannot recommend it highly enough!
This retreat experience gave back my creative juice which I had lost. It reignited my fiery passion for yoga and teaching which I’m forever grateful for. Delamay gives you a journey that culminates into a transformation of your yoga practice and yourself.
Body Mandala Retreat Overview
This enriching embodiment retreat invites you to leave your weekly routine behind as you land and make House of Moons your home sanctuary for a week of total rejuvenation, authentic connection and overall replenishment with a group of like-minded individuals.
We’ll meet and greet for our opening circle and cacao ceremony before enjoying a heart-lead, slow moving and grounding practice to fully arrive and be present on all levels.
Each day we rise with the sun for a silent morning meditation and warming cup of herbal tea while listening to bird songs as Mother Nature awakens.
During your self care free time you can soak up the soothing energy by the pool while marvelling at the expansive ocean and hinterland views.
You’re welcome to walk on the lands and explore the creeks, receive a massage, treat your yoni to a steam, share stories while connecting with others and SO much more. This time is your retreat time to fill with whatever your hearts desires.
Within our daily practices we connect with personal seed intentions and anchor these through journalling, tarot cards and a full spectrum of movement pathways as we dance the body mandala in celebration of the unique poetry of our incredible bodies.

Meet Your Hostess, Delamay Devi
Born and raised in beautiful Bundjalung country (northern NSW), Delamay is deeply passionate about offering movement as medicine and embodiment as a ritual practice while living in synch with the natural cycles of existence.
With a wealth of experience, her embodiment teaching and holding space work spans across two decades and a multitude of countries, festivals, conferences, studios, halls and centres. A creative powerhouse, Delamay is well known internationally for her embodied offerings which are fuelled with inspiration and infectious enthusiasm.
Delamay’s dance, performing arts and movement therapy background provided her with a natural progression to teaching yoga with a curiosity to delve deeper into the rhythm of the breath, the flow of the body and the formlessness of meditation.
Her first love is dance, then yoga so it brings her SO much elated joy to welcome you to this Dancing The Body Mandala Full Moon Yoga retreat which is a fusion of Prana Vinyasa yoga, Elemental living, Tantric Cosmology, Hindu Philosophy, Ecstatic Dance, Somatic inquiry, Thai Massage and the energetic healing arts.
Delamay is very much looking forward to welcoming you to this gathering which is open to all levels of embodiment and experience.
See you soon! xxx
