Mermaid Retreats

Life is short. BE A MERMAID.

Join me in Western Australia for a magical week of yoga, meditation, swimming with whale sharks in the incredibly biodiverse Ningaloo Reef, a special plastic pollution campaign, and practicing a plastic free lifestyle. 

NINGALOO REEF •  7 Day Retreat•  18 - 24 July 2018

This is a long weekend adventure ideal for mermaids keen to take their love for their ocean to the next level. The marine environment in this area is teeming with life and the water is crystal clear. We will take boats out to where the whale sharks play to ignite our awe and enjoy the magic of the incredibly diverse marine eco system. We will also reflect on our experience and channel our love and inspiration towards positive action for our oceans and future. With our intentions clear, we will meditate, eat light, vegan Ayurvedic food, and practice yoga in order to open our hearts, minds, and bodies to guidance and intuition. We will create plastic free recipes and learn tips to reduce our impact.

In order to have as much time as possible in the water with whale sharks, our itinerary will be fluid as the ocean. All activities will be enjoyed, but the order may be rearranged as we do not plan to force nature in anyway. We are also not guaranteed to see any wildlife in the water, we are at nature's will, so will be banking up our ocean karma through conservation to maximise our snorkel luck. <3 Please only strong swimmers need apply.  BOOKINGS CLOSE 20 JUNE. Limited spots remaining.

Accommodation is shared rooms. If you would like to pay extra for a private room, please get in contact ASAP through the booking form at the bottom of the page.

What do we do?  

Our 7 day program will entail gentle introduction to meditation and yoga practice to suit the group. Awakening and deepening our connection to body through movement and breath. In our stillness, allowing space for “spirit” to flow in and guide us to our higher purpose and path.

Our adventure activities are designed to enhance and inspire our personal and spiritual growth. Snorkelling to explore reef and discover marine life, sailing with the wind as our fuel, yoga with the sand between our toes, fresh tropical fruits, warming sunshine, and lush rainforest to feed us fresh oxygen and keep us grounded on this adventure of a lifetime. 

Be a part of a committed group of women to support each other to our most vibrant experience of health, our greatest experiences of joy, and to live our most impactful life yet. There are limited spots available. We do this to foster greater connection in the group and support the journey of each individual.

We will be playing in the ocean and in nature, to connect to our childlike selves, finding immense joy, wonder, and awe as we explore and discover.  Fostering deep gratitude, which is the foundation of our transformation.

Discover leadership skills from environmental activists and politicians, and soak in local wisdom with an indigenous community. Awaken your higher self and your greater purpose through daily yoga and meditation to strengthen and heal mind, body and spirit. Honour the divine feminine within us through ritual and ceremony.

Who is the facilitator?

Kate Nelson

Kate's golden edge is to integrate fluid mermaid magic in with the environmental movement, reinventing conservation and aiding the collective shift through positive energy and luxury adventure. Kate feels called here in this lifetime to support the awakening of women leaders while helping them achieve even greater outcomes for their purpose, their community, and the planet. 

Kate strives for mass global shift through feminine, fluid empowered PLAY. By releasing into childlike joy through adventure and "mermaiding" she opens hearts and minds to a new way of being. She has taught over 1 million people the skills to let go of the synthetic way of life, products, and relationships to return back to the organic and natural. Having led transformational adventures to exotic locations for women from all over the world and different backgrounds, she is consistent in her results. Creating powerful, lasting change in participants and leaving the visited location better than she found it. The Give Back Program is now over a decade old. Under this program Kate has worked along California legislators on the successful plastic bag ban campaign in California, she has sat on the board of Advisors to the Australian Minister of the Environment, worked on plastic pollution campaigns for GreenPeace, San Diego Coastkeeper, Surfrider Foundation, and founded the non-profit organisation Save the Mermaids in 2009.
