Relax and Renew Retreat (Reconnecting to your heart)


Pauanui, Coromandel Peninsula,

North Island, New Zealand

5 night Retreat


When you need time out for yourself, to replenish your energy and rediscover what your heart really desires, this solo Relax and Renew Retreat will set you on course to rediscover wellness, inner peace and self love.
Personally designed to help you reconnect to your “Love for Life”, this retreat facilitated by Carla Ireton will help reveal your true hearts calling and provide clarity and direction about your relationships, career, wellness and more.

The personal Solo Retreats are designed around your needs and preferences and have a self nurturing, self empowering and health orientated focus. This retreat is solely for you, no one else joins you in any of the classes, Day Tour etc, unless you have booked a retreat with your sister or a friend.

Carla is 100% committed to you and dedicates her time only to you. She does not facilitate any other woman on retreat during this time.

Women often find solo retreats are more conducive towards creating more rewarding personal results than large group retreats because they are focused completely on you. When you choose to travel, what you choose to focus on, the length of stay, etc are all up to you.
If you are feeling unbalanced, overworked, fatigued or just in need of a healthy getaway, the Relax and Renew Retreat will:

  • pamper you,
  • nurture you,
  • educate you,
  • replenish you
  • and empower you


” I LOVED the welcome hamper – it was yet another sign that you had put so much thought and love into planning my retreat, I felt ‘special’ from the minute I walked in the door”



Relax and Renew is all about getting back in touch with what really matters to YOU.
It’s about listening to your heart and trusting your inner guidance, replenishing your energy and reconnecting with what YOU truly desire.
This retreat is about YOU finding inner peace, self love and self confidence to be authentically YOU.
And YOU also need to be taken care of, nurtured, pampered and have your soul nourished.


“My goal was a small one…. to change my life and how I think! To gain clarity on where my life was headed, to feel less confused/guilt ridden/disillusioned with the path my life has taken, to understand my hearts purpose and to be able to speak my heart with clarity and confidence. I have most definitely achieved all this and more! I now have acareer direction, have identified my hearts purpose, I feel like Im going home with  experience and tools to help me speak from my heart. I no longer feel confused about the decisions I have made. I feel like I am floating above the hole I have been in for a long time.”






Each day on retreat:

Did you know that inner peace and self love disappears when our needs are not being met and when we lose touch with what we are truly feeling?
To reconnect with what we feel and what we need, women need time out, away from the demands of life, people, work, and family.
We need quiet time to hear our hearts whispers, to really listen to our body and to gently reconnect with our breath.
So each day on retreat:

•    You will have a light daily retreat schedule and you will also have plenty of time for yourself and to put into practice what you are learning along the way.

•    You may choose to stroll the beach, swim in the ocean, walk the mountain and forest trails, rest in the warm sun while listening to the birds, relax in the hot spa pool or by the fireside or just stop for awhile enjoying the quiet of nothingness.

•    You can choose to follow your heart and your body, slow down, notice more, and do less.

•    You have an opportunity to put your self first, how liberating, how wonderful, how unusual.


“From the very bottom of my now open heart, thank you. Words really don’t portray the love, gratitude and thankfulness I feel for the experience I have been given.”

Your retreat accommodation is a private studio, perfect for solo retreats, nestled among native bush, on the side of a mountain, only a five minute easy walk to the beach.

“Nourishing, Empowering and Healing to the Mind, Body & Soul”

5 of 5 stars5 Stars: Reviewed on Tripadvisor, 28 September 2015

To anyone considering attending Byron Women’s Solo Retreat in NZ, without a second’s hesitation, I recommend you should go!!

From my first e-mail to Carla, to the welcome hamper on arrival, to the ‘farewell’ dinner – special does not even begin to describe. It is absolutely evident that Carla invests every ounce of her being into each & every retreat – and her love of doing so was clear before I’d even arrived in NZ with all the care and attention she had invested in planning & organising my stay.

To keep from waffling on, some of the highlights included…

Waking every morning to being surrounded by nature and birdsong….
Starting the day with deeply relaxing & restorative yoga / meditation guided by Carla to cater just for you….
Abundant and delicious wholesome and nutritious food….
Day trip to Cathedral Cove, cafe lunch & relaxing in mineral pools was an absolute highlight….
Two subliminal massages….
Opportunity to spend time talking to Carla about developing intuition, listening to & trusting my heart, and discovering my heart / life’s purpose….

I have returned feeling an incredible sense of calm and freedom, unlike anything I have ever experienced before. This has also had such a positive impact on my relationship with my children and those close to me. Byron Women’s Retreat was truly a life-changing experience that I would wish for every woman to experience at least once in this lifetime!
