Spa-like pampering for your soul

Once in a while, life has the habit of throwing us a little curve ball.

Just when we think we have our goals and aspirations all arranged nicely, something starts to spin. Before you know it, our once linear and unwavering focus in life is seen swerving uncontrollably, deviating from its intended path, and hurling itself into a completely erratic direction.

Although life’s unpredictable challenges can feel like problems that need fixing, at the Narrows Retreat we perceive them a little differently.

We like to think of them as a little plot twist in your story line. A plot twist may be a radical change that shakes you up, but it can also provide you with the opportunity to continue writing your story towards a new and exciting direction.


Much more than just counselling or life coaching

Our personal retreats are much more than a counselling or life coaching session. They are instruments of development and growth.

Our aim is to inspire new chapters in your life based on deep passion and a strong sense of purpose.

All our retreats are based on the firm foundations of knowledge on adult development and human systems leading to deep and long lasting change. We specialise in working with people in their mid-life years and beyond.

So whether you have arrived into your mid-life years feeling stuck, perhaps restless, and not sure of the way forward. Or you are in need of a new direction, and some enrichment in your life and career, we are here to help.


Private and fully customised for you

At The Narrows Retreat we pride ourselves on individual attention. We recognise that people going through a transition or looking for redirection and/or enrichment in their career or personal lives often want to work on their matters in private. To honour each person’s uniqueness and individuality, all of our personal retreats are conducted on a one-on-one basis and are fully customised.

Our approach is based on strong foundations of the ageless wisdom of yoga and adult development leading to deep and long lasting change. Tools and strategies include self enquiry, relaxation techniques, postural adjustments, affirmations, yogic counselling, visualisations and much more.

With a fully customised personal retreat, we may just be able to help you hit that ball out of the park. Or help you move your story beyond that plot twist by simply, inspiring you to start a new chapter in your life.


What people say:

You’ve given me a whole new way of looking at things. I don’t think I would want to go back to my old ways again…it’s a huge shift.

“It was all very soul nourishing for me. I came away rested and revitalised.


2-hour Renewal

Like a renewing facial or a rejuvenating massage for your soul, the 2-hour renewal is a perfect way to give your life a little boost.

We provide the time, tools and professional guidance to help you gain fresh perspectives and new insights, and equip you with a solid plan that will allow you to return to your life filled with renewed passion and purpose.

Day of Renewal

The day of renewal builds upon the offerings of the 2-hour renewal by providing more time in the afternoon to reflect and delve deeper.

The day of renewal is perfect for you if you are experiencing:

  • Feeling stuck and nothing seems to be moving
  • Low energy levels
  • Feeling lost, and lacking a sense of purpose
  • Restless and indecisive about your next steps in life
  • Busy, stressed and overwhelmed
