The stunning Pentillie Castle will be exclusively yours for the duration of the event and we have a created a wonderful package of experiences for all senses!
You will stay in beautiful rooms with stunning views, learn about Vikki’s scientific way of finding happiness, enjoy ‘Carola-inspired’ foods and find out why they support your health and wellbeing, you can join and amble through the wilderness with us, exploring all that nature has to offer in the small wonders of the world that are all around us.
We focus on the world outside of our heads, which is shown to reduce stress and increase happiness. Enjoy a yoga session, some meditation and rest assured, we have lots of other ideas, which will be confirmed soon …. you can find a first draft of our agenda below!
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 break to press the reset-button?
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 ‘wellbeing - 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 Pentillie Castle!
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 exploring Pentillie’s own access to the River Tamar and 55 acres of woodland, 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.
