Stand Tall Retreats

New Women's Wellness Retreat Encourages Women to Stand Tall and Strive for Their Dreams

A new boutique wellness retreat on the South Coast of NSW is offering women a mid-year escape to recharge, reset and rejuvenate. Being held at the stunning Willow Farm in Berry from June 29 – July 1, 2018, the retreat is specifically targeted at empowering women to break through the barriers that might be holding them back from making positive and exciting changes in their lives.

Stand Tall Retreats are a series of bespoke holistic workshops and retreats curated to inspire, nurture and nourish women in beautiful locations with luxurious accommodation. Founder Amy Manton established the retreats because she is passionate about women developing the confidence and skills to live their most fulfilled lives.

'I started Stand Tall Retreats because I wanted to offer women what I was always looking for as a busy, professional woman and mother – a chance to step back from burnout, fatigue and feeling stuck. I wanted to create a sanctuary where a small group of women could actually take a big breath in, a bigger exhale and have a space to reassess where they are at in their lives," said Amy.

'As women, we often try to spin too many plates or do too much. We are devoted to those we love and give endlessly, but we don't always replenish the well. Often we feel guilty or selfish for taking the time for ourselves, yet that is often the best gift we can give not only to ourselves but to those around us."

'I basically designed my perfect retreat – a weekend away in the country with like-minded women that would leave me feeling empowered and rejuvenated with an action plan in place for change. It will give women the motivation and clarity they need to move forward with their lives in a targeted direction, whilst also enjoying maximum nourishment - an opportunity to relax, soak into a bath, take a massage, enjoy daily yoga and exercise sessions, eat delicious nutritious food and drink, and so much more."

The inaugural Stand Tall Retreat will take place over three days on 160 acres of breathtaking lush farmland with luxurious accommodation to leave women feeling nourished and pampered. In addition to a tailored program of creative, nutrition and mindset workshops, a highlight of the weekend will be an immersive 'Make Change" Workshop and Journaling facilitated by renowned facilitator and coach Charlotte Rimmer from Aide De MD.

The weekend will showcase locally produced nutritious and organic meals prepared on the farm by Dandelion & Mallow. Concluding with a dinner party on the final evening with a private chef from Far Meadow Table, with wine pairing.

'The retreats are designed for all types of women at different stages in their lives. The thing they have in common is a feel of wanting some respite and a chance to reevaluate where they are at. So whether you're a new mum re-entering the workforce but lacking some confidence, or a power career woman wondering what's next, this retreat will have something in it for everyone. It is a weekend of decadence, nourishment, education and empowerment. I want to literally support and encourage women to -Stand Tall'!" exclaims Amy beaming with a huge smile.
