What to expect


You can look forward to a heart-guided program with mindful movement, retreat workshops, nourishing food, wellness, healing, relaxation, rest, nature-based activities and local touring. Our retreats are of high standard of comfort, quality, delivery and overall nurturing experience. 

This retreat takes place in Spring. A time to come out of our slower, cooler months of winter to start to move and awaken our bodies with a fresh new outlook and ways.

Spring is a time for positive change, an opportunity to reset with your own inner JOY and where we wish to direct our energy into our future selves. Its a time to refresh and reconnect with our senses, and get back in touch with the outdoors.

You will be supported, guided and uplifted through this light-hearted, joyful retreat program that naturally connects you to the natural healing, joyful properties of nature and yourself.  

Our aim to simply to have a nourishing retreat break for mind, body and spirit. We hope you depart with nourishing tools and perspectives to support the integration of these retreat experiences back into your unique lifestyle at home.

You will be in for a soulful treat with a special sound bath experience by Polly. Also she will offer holistic massage to select guests alongside our other in-house massage therapists.

This was the first health retreat I’d ever done and it really did exceed my expectations. It was the perfect balance of movement, treatments, nourishing food, exploring, community interaction and timeout. The private resort was beautiful and I loved the daily movement, meditation and workshops. Our retreat hosts and facilitators were amazing. Their passion, organisation, attentiveness and talents combined, really enhanced the experience for me. I left the trip with valuable insights and feeling refreshed. I highly recommend these retreats to anyone needing some time out, looking to try something different or wanting some healthy living inspiration!
