What’s the retreat process?

The retreat is really a month long process – with the 7 day retreat in the middle. This is designed so you can create new nourishing patterns to significantly shift your health trajectory.

You will have an initial naturopathic consultation prior to your retreat with either Sally or Layla. This will prepare and establish your therapeutic goals, and start you on your personalised naturopathic protocol. You will use the resources in Sparkle Comprehensive Detox Course to shift your diet and lifestyle .

Your Bali retreat is 7 days/6 nights.

The retreat includes daily personalised, one on one naturopathic support to address any individual health needs, plus personalised herbs and nutritional supplements, daily health check ins and testing, daily therapeutic massage, yoga, movement, detoxification practices, nourishing meals, broths, juices and supported fasting.

Daily itinerary includes noble silence and meditation, yoga/ stretch/ movement practice, individual herbs and nutritional supplement regimes, scheduled nourishment, detoxification practices, sound healing, sun bathing, pool, space and time to relax, journal, nap etc, plus social times if you care to partake.

After your retreat, we’ll have an individual consultation and a group check-in to further establish your ‘new normal’.
