About The Adventure

Join us for the Women Embrace Adventure Women's Retreat, where we've concocted the ultimate fusion of Pilates, wellness, relaxation, and just a touch of indulgence. But fear not, this weekend isn't just about Pilates and mung beans – though there'll be a sprinkle of that too! Expect heaps of laughter, a splash of local wine and cheese, and some surprise WEA delights along the way.

This all-inclusive retreat caters for all fitness levels, whether you're a Pilates newbie or a seasoned pro, perfect for those seeking a break from the daily grind to focus on self-care and rejuvenation. 

Imagine spacious twin-share rooms where you can unwind with a good book or soak in views of the serene Shiraz vineyard from the outdoor patio. Take a dip in the indoor heated mineral pool, indulge in the jet spa or steam room, or bask in the sun on the outdoor pool's sundeck – the retreat space is your sanctuary, whether you're diving into activities or craving some "me" time.

We're thrilled to have Gemma Sadler, the powerhouse behind Dynamic Pilates in Sydney's Northern Beaches, as our Pilates instructor for the weekend. With over two decades of fitness expertise, Gemma's passion for Pilates has transformed countless lives in Sydney and London, guiding clients to remarkable results with her personalized approach.

Why Pilates? Health professionals rave about its benefits – improved posture, muscle tone, balance, and stress relief. Pilates cultivates flexibility, coordination, and core strength, making it truly inclusive for every BODY. During our four-day extravaganza, you'll experience six exhilarating group Pilates sessions, starting with the fundamentals on Thursday evening and progressing to floor and pool sessions, topped off with soothing Stretch and Unwind sessions. 

And that's not all – dive into our fabulous Breathwork and Ice Bath Workshop, the perfect complement to our Pilates sessions. Learn the art of breathing for enhanced emotions, sleep, energy, mood, and more, and finish with an exhilarating ICE BATH – leaving you feeling absolutely fabulous.

Indulge in a luxe lunch at a local vineyard on Saturday and sample some exquisite local wine and cheese on Friday afternoon. Oh, and did we mention we cap off this incredible weekend with a 60-minute massage on the Sunday?

Whether you dive into every activity or tailor your experience, this retreat is all about YOU. Don't miss out on this divine blend of wellness and indulgence – treat yourself to an unforgettable weekend getaway! You know you deserve it.

I'll be coming on my own, is that ok?

Not a problem at all!  Lots of women come on their own to our adventures. Your Women Embrace Adventure hosts will make sure you meet everyone when you arrive on Friday. We always have lots of fun; there's no pressure, no judgment, and lots of encouragement from everyone. By the end of the weekend, you may have just found some new adventure friends!
