This was the first health retreat I’d ever done and it really did exceed my expectations. It was the perfect balance of yoga, treatments, nourishing food, community interaction and timeout. The private resort was beautiful and I loved the daily yoga, 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!Rebecca
Thank you for this amazing experience in a beautiful setting. Perfect guides, a well thought out schedule, indulgent accommodation and an intimate gathering of very special souls coming together to reflect, give thanks to our lives, and learning to improve our bodies so they can carry us into our inspired futures!! We all had FUN, learnt new things and connected. We are eternally grateful! Book me in for the next exciting adventure…Donna
Our clients and staff wellness day was extremely well organised. It was run at the right place, lovely energy from the facilitators. Always great for staff in this type of industry to keep on top of their self-care and learn new skills. Would love to have a staff retreat.Monique
The way the whole of me was nourished, the food, the energy, the workshops, the activities, the ability to take a moment to breathe. What was really importance was that you didn’t push us to tell our stories. You respected our lives and let us choose to speak or not. Thank you.Lynley
I liked everything about the day and felt better for having attended. I liked the idea of a self care plan to follow. I can see that is important to do for myself.Valerie
I loved being with like-minded people in similar situations. Being able to connect in a relaxed, non-judgemental environment. I felt supported, nurtured, at ease, peace and relaxed. I am inspired to nature myself physically with diet and excerise but also mentally and emotionally as well.Lisa
