WOMEN’S RETREATS AND EVENTS
UPCOMING RETREATS IN EDINBURGH
2020 dates being announced soon!
”The most powerful investment you can make is in your well being.”
Make 2019 the year you invest in yourself.
Join us on one of our women’s wellbeing retreats in Scotland, spending 3 or 4 nights at the relaxing JustB bed and breakfast on the edge of Edinburgh.
Our holistic retreats focus on bringing your body, mind and soul into alignment, teaching you how to own your greatness, explore your creativity, summon stillness, strength and confidence, and increase your vibration in order to live a fulfilling, happy life.
You will take part in a variety of classes and activities such as hiking, meditation and clay, and motivational TED-style talks over the 4 days. This will be done in a safe and relaxing setting in the supportive company of other women.
You will be nourished from the inside out; after an inspiring day of classes and activities you will enjoy the famous Scottish hospitality (organic and locally sourced food with vegetarian and vegan options).
