What is Sacred Suntan?

A 7-day Sanctuary Retreat based on the Mind, Body, Soul connection in which we merge our areas of expertise…Yoga, Food, and Mind practices. Oh and a bit of fun along the way. We would love to be guiding you through the many aspects we see as being important to living a healthy life: from daily yoga practices, meditations, foods and nutrition. As a society we find we often look at one but not the other. Genieve and Kate combine forces by bringing together the best of what they do in order to integrate a healthier you in your best body ever and still have a few laughs, margaritas, and suntans along the way.

Genieve and Kate-188What to expect?

We find that like attracts like, and when there’s a positive charge, you get a positive back. What this means to you is that we expect that over the course of your stay you will feel fuelled, nurtured, nourished, stretched, and strengthened. All the core principals that are integral to a better body is how we go about treating full body wellness and what Sacred Suntan means to us

…Expect to learn and use your body as much as you want or as little as you want. Dr Genieve’s expertise in Yoga and Chiro brings along complete awareness of full body respect and workouts.

…Expect a lot of food. Healthy food does need not be boring. But it can be sexy, satisfying and soulful…but it will be plant based. Kate will show you the way

…Expect to laugh, we may not be comedians, but we know how to laugh, and this is just as important part of health, our attitude.

…Expect sun, unless you want an umbrella…then you do you 😉

Regardless and most importantly…we can’t wait to have you!!
