Autumn Wellbeing Retreat

We are very excited to run our Autumn Wellbeing Retreat at the wonderful Thurlestone Hotel in Devon: Join us on a journey of mental and physical wellbeing, delicious foods, activity and beautiful surroundings…
Wellbeing for body and mind at the beautiful Thurlestone hotel
for a 3-day wellbeing retreat on 14-16 October 2020
As you enjoy the serene peace of one of the most spectacular places in Devon with a small group of likeminded men and women, you’ll have the opportunity to fully unwind, eat beautiful, high-vibrational food, enjoy private one2one sessions with Carola and Vikki and dive deep into your personal mental and physical wellbeing.
Your hosts are
Dr Vikki Barnes, Clinical Psychologist and Happiness Specialist
Carola Becker, Nutritional Therapist and Coach
Both are passionate and experienced in their fields, well-known speakers with an unconventional style and instinctive enthusiasm about wellbeing.

You will also have the opportunity to swim, surf, walk, do yoga, meditate,
access the spa and….. make life-long friends!
You deserve the time and nurturing, so come for the ride, alone or with others!

Are You Ready?
Do you ever feel that your mental and physical health could benefit from a boost?
Does the conflicting information about what to do to feel well leave you confused?
Are you craving a tranquil space to realign with your body and mind?
Do you want to shift your energy and create your ‘health – toolbox’ ?
Have you been wanting to learn how to eat well, feel great and to find your path to mental and physical wellbeing?

Then come and join Vikki and Carola at the stunning Thurlestone Hotel in Devon!

What to Expect:
When you join the retreat, expect to let go of the responsibilities of your everyday life (maybe even unplug your phone!), and create space for yourself to explore your very own wellbeing.

Our retreat is what you make it, and if you want to spend the entire retreat in the spa being pampered or walk the beautiful grounds, you are welcome to. If you want to interact and have a hands-on experience and learn about nutrition, meditation, yoga and positive psychology, it’s all there for the taking!

However you decide to approach the retreat, you can be sure to find a safe space to be you, be comfortable, eat well, and take a step towards awakening your wellbeing potential.
