Just DO IT! It was perfect. I feel like a different woman than when I walked in- I feel like I can move mountains. The content was BRILLIANT, the women I met were amazing. I feel light and  invigorated- thank YOU from the bottom of my heart.



I feel relaxed, at peace and more able to ‘destress’ with all of the strategies I have learnt. It’s been so worthwhile to learn who I am, who I want to be and to have a pathway forward to create that.


I feel happy, clear, energised and renewed. I really enjoyed Niky’s explanations of concepts and reconnecting. If you’re thinking about coming- treat yourself! You will be in a safe, supportive and non-judgemental space.


“I feel inspired, empowered and ready to focus on the areas of life I have neglected. I got so much out of the book work, the classes and the meditation. If your interested in coming along Do It! Invest in yourself, you deserve it”



“This retreat is a great opportunity to press pause on our busy lives and do some much needed self care, relax and learn more about yourself and how to remove barriers holding you back from moving forward”


If you’re thinking about coming along, know that its time out for yourself, that there is certainly no judgement and is a lovely warm setting. I now feel like this has helped my mind focus on what I need to do and how to cope with future challenges.

If you’re thinking about coming- do not hesitate. It was great! The girls are welcoming and warm, and give you some great tools to move forward and start changing things in your life with small practical steps. I enjoyed the classes, meeting other woman that came along and now feel totally relaxed and positive.


This retreat was so informative and helpful. I feel more focused, clearer on what I want to have back in my life, what my strengths and values are. This has given me clarity on what I want moving forward. If you’re interested in coming DO IT! Not only will you learn how to Rise UP but how to take it into everyday life, and live your life to the fullest. This retreat was just what I needed.


I loved the supportive environment and the morning meditation and movement. I feel now like I have clarity and the ability to focus on ME! If you’re thinking about coming along- you won’t look back.



Now that I have done this retreat I feel free! I have more clarity on what I need to do to create the life I want. I enjoyed meeting other women and hearing some of their stories- it normalised my own. If you haven’t put yourself first for a long time- now’s the time!


If you’re interested in coming along- take the step! It was a great retreat, a lot of positives I will take home as well as new friendships. I enjoyed the serenity each morning, the tools I can now use to help me be more positive. Now that I have done this retreat I feel great, focused, aligned and feel like I can keep true to myself.


This was truly the best thing I have ever done for myself- thank you so much!

Having the opportunity to participate in Niky’s retreat was a wonderful experience and one which will stay with me for a long time. The retreat was set in beautiful surroundings. As soon as we arrived we were welcomed with a wonderful morning of yoga followed by a delicious lunch. My fellow participants were a lovely group of women from all walks of life and all shapes and sizes but we had one thing in common, our desire to enrich our lives with a course in resilience, health and well-being. We all clicked immediately and from start to finish enjoyed each other’s company enormously learning that everyone has a story. The food was absolutely beautiful. We were treated to a massage or a pedicure or facial. There was also time to read, go for a walk or a swim. I returned home feeling as though I had been touched by a magic stick, walking on air feeling refreshed and relaxed with lots of ideas on how to live my life to the fullest.

As a facilitator, I understand there can always be apprehension before booking on a retreat, ESPECIALLY if you have been navigating a life challenge!

I can recall when I was barely able to leave the house with anxiety and grief, the hesitation I had before booking myself for some time out.

  • What if I embarrassed myself or cried on retreat?
  • What if I didn’t like any of the women on retreat or didn’t fit in?
  • What if I didn’t like the food? Or my bed?
  • What if I just felt a bit too scared to try something new?

Soon I made some room for some different what if’s?

  • What if I met some amazing women and made some great friends?
  • What if this is exactly what I need to help me recover?
  • What if I managed to completely relax, allow myself to be pampered and surrendered just for once into being able to receive?
  • What if this retreat changed my life’s path and helped me move forward?

Watch my short video here to guide you with some simple free steps you can take NOW to help you build resilience.

And then –are you ready to take the leap? To take some time out for yourself? To Rise UP?

These chances only come by once in a lifetime.

YES PLEASE! I need some time out! Book me in!
