Retreat with me
“I always go home as a stronger person after the retreat, I gain more clarity and I have more ideas and feel always so motivated how to improve my life even more, either trough food, meditation or exercise.” – Kathy
Reconnect . Heal . Relax
A few times a year I offer different retreats in amazing places where you can let go of your daily stress, find time to reconnect with yourself, meet your tribe, make new friends and learn something new.
I offer different topics from relaxation, meditation, mindfulness, health, personal development, corporate wellness, nutrition, or detox.
Please contact me if you have a special request or if you want to book me for a group retreat/corporate retreat
