Women make some positive lifestyle changes at Zen Retreat
Naturopath Rebecca Lang highlights the goddess retreat that will have you feeling relaxed and renewed.
ON MAY 30 we had 11 beautiful women travel from all over Australia to attend our Goddess Retreat - Detox Your Body, Mind and Soul.
Women travelled from as far as Perth to join us at the Zen Retreat here in Bargara.
The retreat was designed to help women who wanted to make some positive lifestyle changes and also connect with like-minded women.
All meals were vegetarian for the retreat time and were passionately designed and created by our nutritionist Jodie Bemet.
The beauty was, the ladies were able to observe Jodie as she created these scrumptious meals.
Each morning started with a sunrise beach walk for those who chose to be awake early, followed by an hour of gentle yoga and meditation.
We had various activities such as Kombucha workshops, crystal and energy workshops, nutritional talks and cooking demonstrations, gratitude baskets, kayaking and stand up paddle boarding.
The ladies also had choices of appointments for naturopathy consultation, reiki, iridology, and massage.
The ladies enjoyed their relaxing afternoons having a nanny nap, relaxing in the heated magnesium pool, lazing around on the beach, reading a book and chatting with each other.
In the evenings we did meditations and shared our stories, often by the outside fire.
There was so much laughter and many tears while we connected.
Lifelong friendships were made and many hugs were given. It was sad to say goodbye to each other but we felt blessed to have our paths cross.
Our friendships will now be maintained through a Facebook group where we can continue to support each other.
The ladies journeyed back home to their families, inspired to continue their journey of health and weight loss.
They will continue to have access to their naturopathic script and our naturopath and nutritional consultations through person, phone or skype.
Bargara Beach Holistic Health Centre's Rebecca Lang has enjoyed being able to provide such magical moments through the retreats.
