My confidence and belief in my abilities has sky rocketed. I really doubted whether I was capable of achieving my dreams and that I didn’t know what I was doing. In such a short time I feel so much better about trusting my instinct and skills and to follow the things that I get excited about!

Life changing. I have arrived home a different woman. I feel so certain on what I want and what I can achieve. I have stepped into future me and will not go back.

Highly recommended! I didn’t know what to expect, Jodie and Claire & the group of ladies, all ages, abilities, sizes, couldn’t have been more welcoming. Fabulous guest speakers – mindset, assertiveness,  fitness & woman’s health & hormones.  Morning yoga, evening mindfulness, delicious food & beauty treatments… This is a life changing retreat, at the very least you’ll be refreshed, focused with lots more friends … Santorini next for me 🙂

The retreat to Marrakesh exceeded all my expectations, a trip with the perfect balance of workshops and relaxation with enough opportunities to sightsee as well. I’ve come back wishing I could do it all over again immediately; the other ladies company was so refreshing and I felt surrounded by love and gratitude having made some really strong bonds. I can not wait for the next one.


I went on a retreat last minute last year to Morocco, it was honestly life changing. I went on my own and was worried about feeling lonely in a foreign country – how wrong was I! Everyone was so lovely, so many amazing women wanting the same thing…a bit of tlc for themselves and sharing experiences, as-well as having an amazing time…having fun and laughing! 
I completely recommend booking with ‘Retreat yourself’.  I have made friends for life! If you haven’t booked already, just do it! x

I loved Morocco so much, I booked Santorini, Finland and Bali. That’s how good this company is. They will keep you wanting more and coming back time and time again. I’m gutted that I can’t do Dubai too. Organised, nutritious, safe, supportive, kind, focused and fabulous. I slept under the stars and came home feeling clearer than I have in a long time. Thanks to the whole team for making me feel so welcome.

I have pushed myself out of my comfort zone and proven to myself I am able to do more than I believe I can. I also have clarity on how some small changes to my habits will have a lasting impact on my health. I have grown as a person and met some amazing women.


It’s so hard to describe the growth you can have in such a short time by being around like minded people. To be brave enough to take yourself to a different country and out your comfort zone to really think differently. It’s fun, it’s learning, it’s connecting. It’s just been the trip I didn’t know I needed but will make a fundamental difference to my goals
