What are the escape weekends like?

These weekends are a designed for you to fit in a much needed short break, as we all know how hard it can be to get away with work and family commitments. They are small, women only groups to allow for a more intimate experience and to allow for spontaneity and connection. It is an opportunity to try new experiences in a fun and safe environment. You’ll get to meet new people and enjoy this little part of paradise I call home. These are very flexible and relaxed weekends where all you need to worry about is getting your lovely self there, I’ll take care of the rest. Relax and put your feet up!

Your Host

What to chat about any of my retreats or tours? Feel free to get in touch, I’d love to hear from you.

Don’t forget to follow our Socials and sign up to our members only group to get our newsletter.

Finding out who you are isn’t always that easy!
Some people find their way earlier on in life, exploring experiences and themselves.
Others, like myself get side tracked.
Work, family, life in general takes over and mould us.
But is this who we really are?
Sure it is part of you, but there is so more more to explore!

#bethebestyou #bethebestversionofyou #knowyourworth

And would you share it with others?

I am still working out what my gift is.
A bit like knowing what you wanted to be when you grew up, I’m still not sure.
Some of us are still searching!

I wanted to be an archeologist when I was little, I loved anything old, history , mythology and digging things up.
But as I grew older that dream faded.
Then I just drifted.
Falling into jobs that I didn’t necessarily enjoy and even owning a business because it was the one thing I did know how to do, not because I loved it.

It’s only now I am finding my purpose, and sharing that journey with you.

#liveyourbestlife #wanderlust

I am so looking forward to getting back to @laughingpottery. A highlight of the Escape Weekend Retreats.

Not only do you get to make your own wonderful pottery creations, but you also learn how to relax, feel into the clay and most importantly BREATHE.

We unintentionally sometimes carry so much stress and tension we don’t realise it. This creative process is a great way to reduce stress and have fun.

#liveyourbestlife #getcreative #stressless

Looking forward to getting back into it and hosting the next Escape Weekend Retreat in February!

I have been having a break from work over Christmas to get my mojo back after a family bereavement, which has had its difficult moments, as you can appreciate.

But, I am now refocusing on the next retreat and the fun activities we do, like visiting @kaimai_distilling for a private gin tasting!
Just one of the fun local experiences we have while you are on the escape weekend retreats.
There is one spot left for March’s date.
Get in touch if you would love to join us.

Set your INTENTION ~ 2022

Thank you for a wonderful year with some amazing women!
I was very privileged to host space for women to come on retreat, rest, and recharge, but also to get out of their comfort zones and try new experiences.
And they ALL did that with open arms and embraced it.
I look forward to being able to hold space again for more women in 2022 on retreat.

To remind them it’s never too late to rediscover yourself, try something new, and have fun!
That age is not a barrier.
Or when life and family circumstances change, it can be a great opportunity to reinvent yourself.
Here’s to WANDERLUST and all the life adventures it brings.

#intentions #wanderlust #womensupportingwomen #womenempoweringwomen

What adventures are you up to these holidays?
Exploring the stunning Karangahake Historical Reserve is one of my favourite places to visit and share with the ladies on retreat.

With different, accessible tracks to choose from it's a great way to spend a day with the family and take a dip to cool off while there.

The Windows Loop Walk is my favourite which takes you across the Ohinemuri River and over the lower Waitawheta River.
The old train tunnel loop is another great option to explore taking you through the 1100m tunnel and past historic gold mine sights.

So that’s a wrap 2021.
What a crazy year, yet again.
I’ve had highs and lows. Just like many of you.
HIGH- I’ve hosted 12 magic retreats here in New Zealand
LOW-lockdowns and travel restrictions continued, making it hard to plan anything.
HIGH-I’ve met some pretty EPIC women on retreat, that stepped outside their comfort zones and gave it their all.
LOW-said goodbye to my Bella dog after just over 14 years of being my best friend.
HIGH-took a leap of faith and went after my own retreat centre property.
LOW- just missed out on the above property
HIGH-have two more magic retreats already booked for 2022
LOW- the biggest low, farewelling my mum for the last time at the start of this month.

I’m ready for a change in the biggest way, and I hope the universe shows me the way.
Wishing you all magic new beginnings in 2022, and a very happy holiday season.

Have you ever tried yoga?
Maybe you went to a class and felt like you couldn’t keep up or you couldn’t get into the positions the instructor was teaching?
Or you might have felt totally out of your comfort zone and didn’t try it again?
You know what? That’s OK.
On my retreats, I give you a safe, private space to experience gentle yoga, where you go at your own pace and listen to what your body tells you.
If you just want to lie down and use your breath, that ok too.
The benefits of yoga are well known and vast.
• Improves posture.
• Increases flexibility.
• Builds muscle strength.
• Boosts metabolism.
• Helps in lowering blood sugar.
• Increases blood flow.
• Keep diseases at bay.
• Increases self-esteem.

It can just be a case of finding the right fit for you.
This is an opportunity to explore yoga 🧘‍♀️ on one of my weekend escapes, no matter your experience.
