Women’s Weekend Retreats 2021:

Two Nights, Three Day Retreat

After a year like 2020 and so many lockdowns in 2021, we all need a little extra R&R to release, let go and recharge.

Plus I know how you feel. Life gets super busy and everyone’s needs seem to come before yours: work, family, partners, children, parents etc.

Before you know it, you feel overwhelmed, tired, snappy, desperate for everything to stand still for a few days, hours, just so you can catch your breath.

I have been there, and things didn’t get better by themselves. In fact, I was forced to take a break – my body demanded it. The result: chronic fatigue and burnout.

But you don’t have to wait for that unwelcome break. Claim your own break sister!

And before you say you have others to think about, this is as important for the people in your life, as it is for you.

Fill your cup, and you’ll be able to give more with ease and true vitality.

I want to help you find some nourishing stillness and connect in with yourself.

I created these retreats as it was what I personally crave myself; peace, quiet, whole food, yoga, deep breathing, nature, pure receiving and connection with myself and other like minded women.

And I can’t think of a better way to recharge, especially in with the energy of COVID constantly lingering!

Come join our 2021 Weekend Women’s Retreat!

Just 1.5 hours from Latrobe Valley in Gippsland or Melbourne’s CBD, the house and the yoga space are seamlessly integrated into the landscape, nestled into a two acre flower and orchard garden, with the Warburton mountains providing a stunning backdrop.

This retreat is for you if your seeking:

  • Total switch off time
  • Refill you self energy cup
  • Re-connection with your body
  • Want to be held, nurtured and nourished
  • Create space to breath and reflect
  • Two day full days of self care time
  • Connect with like minded women

Here’s what happens on the retreat:

  • You set an intention and you journal to get all those chaotic thoughts to the surface and start getting clarity
  • You join two workshops with the other amazing women and me, one each day
  • You enjoy healthy yet lick-your-fingers delicious vegetarian meals. You don’t have to worry about what’s for dinner 😉
  • You yoga your way to mental peace with gentle hatha, yin and restorative yoga
  • You quieten your mind with daily meditation, including yoga nidra
  • You nourish your soul with a women’s circle
  • You leave home with tools and techniques to help you navigate daily life with more intention and calm
  • You connect with an intimate group of like-minded women who have already claimed their space
  • You will have free time to rest, nap, walk, journal, read, sit in front of the fire and enjoy the beautiful property
  • You will receive a 1 hour massage with Rhianna Bridgett from The Wellness Nest

But don’t take my word for it.
