5 day Retreat at The Lodge, Verbier, Switzerland – 12-16 September 2023

Richard Branson’s exclusive resort is all ours for a mountain explore high in the Swiss Alps. Relax in the indoor and outdoor hot tubs, detach with spa treatments and enjoy Michelin-star food… details now confirmed!

After the success of last year’s retreats we are delighted to be heading to Verbier to visit Richard Branson’s lodge for our autumn retreat!

Are you ready for a special experience? What about wellbeing for body and mind in the crisp and clear air of the Swiss mountains? Escape into nature to focus on yourself!

Our retreats provide a complete immersion into wellness: We will combine expert coaching from clinical psychologist Dr Vikki Barnes and I, a specially designed ‘Carola-inspired’ menu throughout the 5 days, plus lots of outdoor experiences to make the most of the stunning location!

Verbier’s valleys will be bathed in autumn sunshine, sitting against a backdrop of snow-capped mountain peaks – the perfect scenery for hiking, biking and exploring. From gentle to challenging, it’s your choice!

The retreat runs for 5 days from 12 – 16 September 2023 and it includes:

  • 5 days/4 nights in one of the three beautiful room/suite categories
  • Nutrition and lifestyle workshops led by Carola
  • Psychology and mindset workshops led by Dr Vikki Barnes
  • Mountain yoga and meditation sessions
  • Early-morning wellbeing (if you wish!)
  • High-vibrational and nutritious meals, snacks, and drinks throughout, designed by Carola and created by our Michelin-trained chefs
  • A number of outdoor excursions ​
  • our own indoor and outdoor pool and hot tub
  • 5 days of wellbeing and tools to continue your transformation at home
  • Goodie bag

We have loads of plans for our retreat, but most of all we want you to have as much time as you like in the mountains, enjoying the famous Swiss Alps to the max!

So the first thing to know is that our agenda is super-flexible! We’ll let the sunshine decide when it’s time to play or when to get cosy inside, where we’ll share our passions for food and positive psychology to help you making the most of this holiday for your health and wellbeing!
