Solo Retreat

Solo retreat

Focus on yourself

You can’t pour from an empty cup. Yet that’s what we try to do when we ignore our body’s signals. Don’t ignore stress, pain and a lack of energy. Embrace these signals and treat yourself to rest and qualitative me time to come back stronger. We look forward to taking of the daily speed train, and bringing back your lust for life. Cindy is your perfect companion to help you reset, without the distraction of your colleagues, friends, family, and the various screens you use on a daily basis. Our Solo Retreats are all about you. Cindy has a gift to listen to your story open-mindedly, and finding the treatments that will benefit you most. Give yourself the me time you deserve. You’ll feel reborn when you return home.
