Set in the famously beautiful beach town of North Berwick near Edinburgh at a five-star hotel, this three-night, four-day retreat couldn't be better placed to deliver everything you've ever wanted from a well-being break.
Your retreat programme is tailored to the needs of women in midlife, helping you look, feel, and ultimately, live better.
For many women, the perimenopause and menopause transition has been a tipping point - what used to work no longer does. But the truth is, there's no magic bullet; we need a holistic approach. This retreat gives you the time to experience and enjoy the feeling of real change in your body, skin, energy and mindset while becoming more confident about the next steps.
The detox-style nutrition is designed to improve metabolic and gut health - if you need to kick-start fat burning (shifting those stubborn pounds around the tummy) or beat the bloat, this is for you! Specialist ingredients support the body’s natural detoxification processes, making the programme ideal for rebalancing energy, harmonising hormones and optimising health and vitality.
Unique to this retreat, all participants receive an individual health check with our Women's Health Nurse specialist, who co-hosts the event.
The progressive exercise programme is based on daily Pilates masterclasses for strengthening and toning, with restorative beach walks and a daily workout challenge - all designed to give you the education and experience you need to integrate.
Last but by no means least, we have an array of soothing and spa treatments on offer, plus daily use of the gorgeous spa.
Consultation, education and support
There's a strong focus on practical education throughout the retreat - we'll teach you how to manage your nutrition and eating patterns, helping you cut through any confusion and finally get the results you are looking for.
You'll receive pre and post-retreat menu plans and a personalised advice report on the key health areas that will impact your well-being now and in the future.
This special retreat allows you to spend memorable moments with like-minded people looking to achieve shared goals as you; you’re not alone.
About the venue
The Marine and Lawn's location is simply unbeatable, with easy-going staff, stunning views, and ridiculously comfortable rooms that ensure your shoulders drop an inch by the end of the first day. If you wish to venture out a little further, boat and SUP tours are widely available - a chance to see the local wildlife! If you are looking for a truly inspiring experience, look no further.
"This retreat is a chance to help the body to heal and rebalance from the inside out, a time to naturally reset the appetite and restore healthier habits. North Berwick is such an unbelievably special place - it's my home town, and I look forward to sharing time there with my retreat guests." Amanda
