Alternative New Year Retreat


7-Day Alternative New Year Retreat

27 December, 2019 - 2 January, 2020
(7 days, 6 nights)

Hoi An, Vietnam


Reflect, Release, Manifest, Renew

Looking to unwind after Christmas, avoid the crazy parties and welcome in the New Year with a clear head and like-minded people?  Feeling a little stuck and wanting direction in place of arbitrary (and unachievable!) resolutions?Make 2020  the year to address these unmet needs - give yourself the gift of change and time for transformation.

Kickstart 2020 with mind, body and soul in alignment. Give yourself 7-days to explore focused workshops, daily yoga, meditation, reflective writing and deliciously healthy food.  We offer you time, space and compassionate support to take a step back and evaluate ways in which you can immediately make change to bring your values and lifestyle into alignment.
