Using the breath, you can regulate your nervous system, putting you into an instant calm state
Are you ready to elevate your well-being and leadership game to new heights? Imagine indulging in a weekend retreat where you can unplug from the hustle and bustle of life, and focus on yourself like never before. If you're a savvy business owner or professional, who knows the importance of taking time out for yourself, then this luxurious well-being retreat is tailored just for you.
Say goodbye to stress and hello to instant calm with powerful tools that are right at your fingertips.
Did you know that breathing correctly can regulate your nervous system and put you in a state of calm? It's true! According to James Nestor, the renowned author of "BREATH," humans have lost this essential skill in today's fast-paced world. But fret not, because we've got you covered.
Join us for a weekend of exploration and experience the positive impacts of mindfulness, breathwork, cold therapy, sound healing, and yoga. Our team of experts will guide you on a transformative journey to unlock the full potential of your mind and body. You'll learn tools that you can instantly apply in your everyday life to calm your mind, boost your performance, and enhance your overall well-being.
Say goodbye to reduced productivity, problem-solving challenges, and lack of creativity due to stress and worries. Gain the capacity for clear and quick decision-making, and be fully present in every moment, whether it's at work or with your loved ones. As someone who has navigated a 21-year corporate career, I wish I had known these simple yet powerful tools earlier. But now, you have the chance to learn them and transform your life.
Picture yourself at the serene Waverley Estate, tucked away in private grounds, just a scenic 1-hour drive from Adelaide. The Estate's charming history, elegant Georgian stone buildings, tasteful French provincial decor, traditional tennis court, and private pool create the perfect backdrop for a luxury getaway. Indulge your senses in the sun-drenched trees and lush coastal gardens, setting the ambience for a weekend of rest, rejuvenation, and meaningful connections. Who knows, you might even make some lifelong friends along the way.
Because here's the truth: personal and professional well-being are intertwined. What's going on at home can impact your work, and vice versa. That's why it's crucial to recharge your batteries and show up as the best version of yourself in all areas of life. As Brené Brown wisely said, "who we are is how we lead." And I'll add my twist to it: "who we are is how we show up." So why not show up as someone who is light, calm, clear, and fully present? Join us at the well-being and leadership retreat and unlock your true potential. Don't wait, sign up now and take the first step towards a brighter, more empowered future! So, are you ready to invest in yourself and experience a transformation like never before? Don't miss this opportunity to elevate your well-being and leadership skills to new heights. Sign up now and get ready to embark on a journey of self-discovery, rejuvenation, and empowerment. It's time to show up as the best version of yourself and lead with confidence. See you at the retreat!
Attending a retreat with Retreat a Little was one of the best decisions I have made. With a busy work schedule and family life, I was looking to take time out and recharge my spirit. I got exactly this. Alice is an incredible host, welcoming and warm, everything was beautifully organised and Alice led inspiring conversation which was so refreshing.

My weekend away in beautiful Port Elliot could not have come at a more opportune time. Slightly burnt out and tempted daily by an almost irrepressible urge to tell my customers where to go, the lure of a weekend away in a glorious old estate in quirky Port Elliot was just the ticket.
