Weight Loss and Wellness Retreats

Retreat lengths are 3, 7, 10, 14 and 21 days.

Designed to address the challenges women have to lose weight in a natural and sustainable way. Healthy weight loss is not about suffering on a fad diet to lose some kilograms over a set time period, then reverting back to the previous lifestyle choices to see the weight come back on again.  Many thousands of women go through this cycle, punishing themselves over and over, when there is a much better way.  Healthy weight loss is about healthy lifestyle choices, not dieting, not starving, not counting calories.  Women come to White Orchid Retreats to learn about the science behind sustainable weight loss.  Simple and small lifestyle changes can translate into a leaner and healthier you.  Education on all aspects of wellness, particularly around weight management, is the key. With education comes awareness and it drives replacement of the self-destructive behaviour, that results in an unhealthy lifestyle, with better informed behaviour.  Support of other women, who are undertaking a similar journey, in a private and secluded environment, is seen as essential to breaking away from the old unhealthy lifestyle habits and changing to the new.  The fact that the environment is a retreat set in native bush, with luxury accommodation, delicious food, spa treatments on request, geothermal pools and super friendly staff, just makes the journey a little more comfortable.  The location, just 20 minutes from Tauranga, has the benefit of the beautiful Bay of Plenty sunshine and warmth, as well as being handy to all of a city's conveniences.

Daily routine of mild exercise at 7am, after a good nights’ sleep, followed by a hearty breakfast are the start of most days. Most mornings will feature a workshop, on various aspects of health, to equip participants with the knowledge and tools to change their life.  The afternoons are yours to enjoy how you like, you may opt for a beauty treatment or two, go for a bush walk, curl up with a book or soak in the geothermal pool. A lengthy time away for you at one of these retreats is a big investment, but it will change your life and those around you.
