WHAT MAKES REPLENISH RETREATS DIFFERENT?
Woman’s retreats abound, for lithe, fit young woman who think nothing of standing on their head or bending their body into alarming shapes. … and good on them for their ability! But if it’s a few years since you could tie your feet behind your head, perhaps you’re looking for something different.
Lynda has created a day long program designed to appeal to more mature women in their 40’s, 50’s and 60’s (and beyond)….. but if you are a younger woman, you are very welcome too!
Here you will find an accepting, supportive space in which to “breathe out” and lay down your burdens, for a day. You may be tired and depleted; unfit or overweight; out of ideas on how to reclaim your health and happiness; confused by conflicting health information… or maybe you just want to spend a day somewhere beautiful, with good company and wonderful food (and enjoy the fabulous gift box you will take home). If so, then this is the retreat for you.
