Treat your mind, body and soul

Jump into well-being

COMING SOON, COMING SOON, COMING SOON!

More than a bit excited, you don’t want to miss this. Find out the juicy details below.

We’re still hammering out the finer details like time, price, etc – however these are the places we have earmarked. Make sure you join the mailing list to keep your ear to the ground.

ABOUT RETREATS

Are you feeling stressed? Do you struggle to find time to spend on yourself? Does the idea of a few days away from civilisation, away from phones, work, business and the daily pressures of life sound absolutely blissful? How about having someone teach you how to deal with daily stress, teach you the right food to eat for you personally, the right exercise for you personally, and just have some fun with a bunch of like-minded woman!

 

Pamper yourself in luxurious but holistic spa’s with beautiful body and facial treatments that will not only sooth your body, but your soul too.

 

Learn what beliefs you have that you may not even know about that have probably been sabotaging your success at losing weight and keeping it off for years, and then learn how to overcome those beliefs so that you can continually work at moving forward on a mental and spiritual level. Learn how to exercise, how to meditate, how to relax, learn how to make this amazing healthy tasty food that you will be shown, and will be enjoying. Understand why all of this is so important to you! And then learn how to keep this new lifestyle sustainable long after you leave the comfort of the surreal surroundings that you have been in.

 

Whether you long for the quiet tropical spiritual haven in Bali, where you can get lost in the culture, the food, some uplifting yoga, and finding your soul purpose through deep meditation. Or maybe it’s all the above but this time set in the tropical wonderland of the Fiji Islands, where lush breathtaking reefs are at your finger tips for diving, or a world renowned gold course. With the fusion of cultures and foods, the white sandy beaches, and beautiful sunsets take your fancy.

 

Then again, you may be right into the outdoors, and doing the most exciting things! And that’s in the adventure capital of the world in Queenstown New Zealand, with it’s breathtaking scenery, it’s huge variety of activities to do, from horse riding in Glenorcy, to skiing on the slopes of The remarkable or Coronet Peak, white water rafting, or sitting atop on a hill above the beautiful lake, taking in the view, the peace and getting right with nature.

 

Maybe you prefer a warmer climate in the beautiful quiet spiritual corner of the North Island of New Zealand called…The Coromandal. With it’s white sandy beaches, the stunning Pohutakawa trees, mild climate and lush New Zealand native bush. Here you can enjoy everything the retreats have to offer, but be amongst nature and enjoy bush walks, sea excursions and the fascinating native culture of this beautiful country. Or even the sometimes-quiet corner of Australia, where stunning gold beaches meet the beautiful Queensland bush in the hinterlands of the Gold Coast. Once again, in a state where Fitness is everywhere, and part of the daily lifestyle of many Queenslanders, and alternative holistic treatments are readily available, enjoy everything from boot-camps on the beach to relaxing engaging yoga in the quietness of the bush. And if beach activities, or shopping, or adventure parks take your fancy, there are numerous spots to consume some well earned down time.

 

So, what resonates with you? The quietness? The extreme? Just to be able to relax? To learn how you can really change your lifestyle, and your life? As woman, we don’t look after ourselves. We out everyone else’s needs before ours, and we get the dregs. It’s time girls… it’s time to change the way you do things. Take the time to indulge in your self, you body, your mind, and then go and change your world. It’s just a decision.
