Stillness, Peace, Relaxation

Man in SunsetWoman in Desert





From the 12th to 18th October 2018, I will be hosting a fully Restorative Retreat in South Africa for busy individuals who are ready for some time out from the ‘Always-On’ culture of a busy life. This is an opportunity to press the PAUSE button and to move from exhausted or overwhelmed to restoring and sustaining your WELLBEING and BALANCE.

This is an intimate retreat for individuals who are serious about rest and restoration, committed to finding balance and wanting to shift any unhealthy patterns which can often lead to stress and burnout. A retreat (rather than a ‘holiday’), means this is your time to fully focus on YOU.

What’s different about this retreat is that the restorative program is fully BESPOKE, designed for YOU, to meet your needs and preferences, guided by ME.

That’s right, for 7 days you will have my full attention in supporting you to feeling Awesome.

Yes AND … if you’re thinking “I don’t have time to slow down”, THEN … this is definitely for you!

Here is your opportunity to:

  • Slow down, Quiet your mind and Sleep better
  • Reconnect with Yourself and Nature
  • Experience Time Stand Still
  • Build Self-Awareness about your personal wellbeing
  • Learn how to self-regulate your energy & response to stress
  • Embed healthy and sustainable ways of working & living
  • Recharge your Energy
  • Feel Awesome

Join me in the beautiful region of the Waterberg just outside BelaBela north of Johannesburg, South Africa. You will be staying in a private house on the five star Zebula Golf & Spa Estate and Nature Reserve.

Here’s what one happy client has to say:

“Perfect timing, perfect pace, nourishing environment (the company, animals, nature, house, gentleness of everything), must repeat (frequently!!) bucket list item, hope to join you in Zimbali next time (or do both!!) :D”

– R.B, United Kingdom

This is your TIME OUT and a doorway to reconnecting with yourself and what’s important through nature, stillness and a combination of wellbeing coaching, relaxation & restorative practices, energy healing and meditation.

The animals in the nature reserve are free roaming, they often come straight to the house. Don’t worry there are no large predators, but here’s a glimpse of what you might see in this short video: Zebula Giraffe
