On retreat with Tania

My experience was a slow reveal through talking, movement and letting go.

Tania is bloody brilliant, intelligent, perceptive & real.

I feel like I have returned to myself with respect & compassion.

I will be listening to myself and giving myself more love & support after this retreat.



On retreat with Tania

"Tania has a beautiful energy, delivering her knowledge in a relatable way that connected with me & where I was in my life.

A lot of thought and effort that went into the structure & content of the retreat, yet it was delivered so naturally that it just flowed.

I realised I am not alone in my struggles and now I have new ways to deal with them.

I left feeling relaxed & so grateful I went.

It was amazing!"



On retreat with Tania

"The theme of the retreat was exactly what I experienced.

Tania not only has a calm presence, but an amazing ability to make you feel the same - literally from the moment you enter the door!

I recommend this to anyone feeling overwhelmed, anxious, uptight - this will sort you out!

I left feeling self-aware and happy to have learned so much, including meditation."

How do you deal with demands and conflicts in your life?

 Some of us get snappy, blaming & criticising, or withdrawing and isolating ourselves, whilst others strive to keep the peace, through people pleasing. Maybe you know all of these strategies?

If you are exhausted, constantly overthinking &/or overworking, resentful, &/or pushing away the people you love, it’s time to find a better way. 

At this retreat, you will learn how to find your zen by unplugging from old habits, and hitting the reset button, so you can feel lighter and clearer.  You will develop a better understanding of what healthy and unhealthy stress looks like, and how to manage that stress.

This is an interactive retreat including transformative sessions to process your emotions, so you leave feeling clear and refreshed, ready to implement new ways of being into your everyday life.
