A 3-day empowering retreat for women who need something to change, want to explore what they want and what this looks like, get purposeful and intentional, navigate what's holding them back and regain control.

With the daily pace of life and endless responsibilities; it's easy to find yourself on autopilot, doing what's expected of you, is familiar or too hard to change.  Perhaps you:

  • ​Are lacking purpose, focus or motivation to make a change. 

  • Have negative thoughts or patterns of behaviour that keep you stuck.

  • Have self-doubts and fears that can sabotage your progress.

  • Speak to yourself critically.  

  • Have self-care that is at an all-time low, with everything and everyone coming before you.    


Whatever isn’t working for you right now, this retreat will take you on a path of self-discovery, give you space to take stock and develop the power to make a change.


With four powerful workshops, gentle Pilates sessions, walks by the sea, wholesome food, time to just be and a plan to take away; this restorative retreat will leave you feeling re-energised, intentional and empowered to take control of your life.

Day 1 - Germinate

We will be ready to welcome you to Florence House at around 2pm. 

After taking time to settle into your surroundings, we will get to know each other and start our first workshop.  I will run a fun and creative session where you start to get clear on who you want to be, what you want to have and what you want to do in the rest of 2023.  You will have all the materials you need to create your very own vision board that will support your continued journey towards what really matters to you. 


We will then take a walk down to the beach to get some fresh air before coming together again in the evening over a drink and a delicious vegetarian dinner. 


After dinner, Sofia will take us through a relaxing breathing experience in the magical yurt to set you up for a wonderful night’s sleep.

Day 2 - Grow

We will start our second day with a gentle Pilates session with Sofia, to stretch and awaken our bodies, followed by breakfast.

The first workshop of the day will be one of self-discovery, getting more aware of our limiting thoughts, beliefs and stories that we tell ourselves, how they are driving our behaviours and holding us back and how to challenge, reframe and reduce their influence.

We will then take a walk on the nearby cliffs to clear our heads and work up an appetite for a delicious lunch that will be waiting for us upon our return.


After lunch there will be a second workshop where we will approach our self-care, self-compassion and self-acceptance.  We will work on quietening our inner-critic, celebrating our successes, being kinder towards ourselves and upholding boundaries.

We will come together again in the evening for drinks and dinner.

Day 3 - Bloom

We will start our final day together with another Pilates session from Sofia, followed by a dip in the sea to truly awaken those brave enough!  After this there will be a hearty breakfast.

I will then run the last of the workshops which will bring together your renewed sense of purpose and direction, awareness, insights and learnings.  We will talk through tools and techniques for you to take away to support your continued development and I will guide you through formulating your bespoke plan for your continued practice and progress.


We will then enjoy lunch together and say our goodbyes before we meet again virtually in 4 weeks’ time for a group coaching session to check in on progress, support with challenges and celebrate wins. 



I’m Louisa, your host for the retreat.  My passion is helping individuals overcome their self-doubts to live more fulfilling lives and reach their potential.  I believe that our thoughts, beliefs and the stories we tell ourselves shape our emotions and behaviours. 


I also believe that we have the power to take control of these and that we all need to be much kinder to ourselves.  My path into coaching has raised my own self-awareness and helped me greatly with this!

When I’m not working, I enjoy family dog walks, spinning (sort of), Pilates (with Sofia!), baking, meeting up with friends and watching the world go by with a coffee.



My lovely friend and Pilates teacher, Sofia Rea, will be our Pilates guide over the three days.  Sofia runs The Garden House Pilates in Surrey, having trained with Body Control Pilates and opening the doors to her business in 2018. 

Sofia will take us through a relaxing breathing and meditative session on the first evening in the magical yurt and will run two gentle morning Pilates sessions to set us up for each day. 


You don’t need to have done Pilates before, these classes are designed for all abilities, to give us some ‘me time’, help us stretch, gently awaken our bodies and help us feel energised and ready for the day ahead.
