Mermaid Retreats



Life is short. Be a Mermaid!

The Retreats

What is this program?! 

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 very 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.

I have learnt to be playful. I have learnt to let my spirt soar...I have again found my connection with Mother Earth, ever deeper than before.

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.

We are ALL Mermaid Queens. Step up to your crown. Walk a path so Earth-positive that you feel confident owning your queen-ness.

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.
