Revive & Restore Retreat on Waiheke

Friday 28th - Sunday 30th June 2024

Retreat Information

Join us for a weekend of mindfulness and relaxation at The Ranch, hosted by Sarah Tanner.

Passionate wellness ambassador Sarah Tanner will be your host over the weekend.

Through cooking wholefoods, developing daily rituals, daily coastal walks and tuning in to what feels right for you, Sarah will gently guide you through the weekend.

To deepen your relaxation, Sarah is also a multi-instrumentalist sound facilitator. Each night, you can melt into the restorative and powerful experience of a sound bath with Sarah in the main house and finish with a relaxing dip in the spa.

With her nourishing meals, wellness tips, shared time in nature, and healing sounds, you will feel taken care of on all levels.

Sarah knows the importance of taking a break from a busy life, and looks forward to welcoming you.
