Twenty-two Kar­ratha women en­joyed a week­end of pi­lates and pam­per­ing at the re­lax­ing Women’s Well­ness Re­treat at the Mack­erel Is­lands.

The June 16-19 re­treat was hosted by Kar­ratha-based pi­lates stu­dio XS En­ergy and in­volved daily pi­lates and med­i­ta­tion ses­sions, a man­dala-mak­ing work­shop, spa treat­ments, a cook­ing demon­stra­tion, beach ac­tiv­i­ties and an op­por­tu­nity to re­lax and take in the sea­side serenity near Mack­erel Is­lands.

XS En­ergy stu­dio founder Wendy Drew said the in­au­gu­ral event was a great suc­cess.

“We were spoilt with amaz­ing food at the is­land and Onslow Beach Re­sort and my guests had plenty of time to chill out, read a book or catch up with friends and make new ones,” she said.

“I have had amaz­ing feed­back from my guests and am al­ready plan­ning the next one and pos­si­bly another at a dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tion.”

Sev­eral lo­cal busi­nesses got in­volved in the re­treat in­clud­ing Can­tik Make-up Artistry which pam­pered guests with fa­cials and man­i­cures, and Krys­tal Panakera-Thorpe, who fa­cil­i­tated guided med­i­ta­tion ses­sions.

Guests were treated to a goodie bag of do­nated lo­cal prod­ucts
