This retreat contains 2 hours of workshops with Lindsey Whistler, registered Nutritional Therapist. The first workshop will focus on food and fitness for menopause. Learn how you can nourish yourself with hormone-supportive foods and which lifestyle practices will help you bring mind and body into balance.

There will also be the option to book 1:1 assessments with Lindsey over the weekend. You will receive a personalised nutrition and lifestyle plan following an in-depth conversation about your health.

The delicious plant-based menu has been planned specifically to incorporate foods that will help to support your body through menopause. One of these is fermented foods – so we will be learning how to make sauerkraut. You will make your own and take it home!
