"During my visit, I join a group of people who are midway through a seven-day retreat. They hail from all over Australia and most have traveled specifically to be here. For some, it is their second or third time here. Yoga is not the only attraction at Griffins Hill, though. Jane caters to the groups with a “paddock to plate” food philosophy."

"Apart from the yoga sessions, there are splendid surroundings to explore on foot or to appreciate from a more relaxed position. Inside the Griffins Hill homestead, a sense of light and space pervades, and the guest-rooms far surpassed my humble yogic expectations.
