…I felt so refreshed and invigorated

I recently took part in one of Michelle’s retreat weekends. The thought originally filled me with dread but I knew it was something I had to do. Michelle was accommodating for different levels of fitness and experience. She went with the flow of what we required and pushed us to try new things.

Normally you come back from a weekend away feeling tired and ready for a good night’s sleep – not this time! I felt so refreshed and invigorated. The clean eating food Michelle had prepared was delicious and I’ve tried to stick to it since I’ve been back – those 2 days really did make a difference. The activities were different from your normal well-being weekend and we even learned some basic bush craft survival skills!

I cannot recommend Michelle enough, she has made me look at things so differently in life and I am still thinking that way 3 weeks later!


…thoroughly 100% recommend this retreat!

I attended Michelle’s Wellness Retreat in July 2019. What were the best bits? Well, where to start… it was a digital detox and a chance to step away from everyday life for a couple of days. A time to focus on myself and my own needs in that moment. There was walking in beautiful woodland, skimming stones on the river, and conversation around the campfire… to name just a few of the joys of this retreat. I even had my first ever experience of a woodland shower – there is something both weird and wonderful about showering in the outdoors, surrounded by trees and the sounds of nature. And, of course, Michelle provided plenty of activities to get us thinking and contemplating career, health, relationships, and life generally… where we are right now, and where we want to be and what future we want to create for ourselves. And that’s not even mentioning the delicious food (read: feast) Michelle created for us… all on a camping stove! I returned home feeling rested, relaxed, recharged, and ready to take on the week ahead. I thoroughly 100% recommend this retreat! And that’s not overstating it even one little bit!


It was amazing…

A few weeks ago I went to sample some forest living for two nights. It was amazing, snug as a bug in an ecopod, outdoor showers, compost toilets, eating al fresco, the sound of the river flowing past our pod, flint and strike fire making and then there is Michelle Burrows who organised the whole thing.

So bloody positive ALL the time. Michelle is one amazing, inspiring, can-do woman who I’m convinced her first word must have been yes

She has another retreat weekend coming up in October. Go check it out playmates and get yourself a dose of forest living and de-stressing the ‘get inspired’ way
