Wellness Weekend Retreats

Cook. Eat. Restore – Wicked Weekend Retreats

From lockdown, to vaccine passes, to juggling work with homeschooling the kids, chances are you’ve had a pretty tough time over the past couple of years and the impacts of Covid-19 have left you feeling stressed, overwhelmed, isolated and under pressure.

How good would it feel to reset your wellbeing and restore your energy, your motivation and your vitality, so you can get back to being you and the person you want to be?

Have you ever thought of attending a weekend wellness retreat, where you take 2 1/2 days out and not have to think about a thing, and where you don’t feel guilty about putting yourself first?

Not even what food you need to take, if there’s going to be enough coffee, or if you can bring wine? (of course you can bring wine!).

If that’s a no, then this weekend retreat is for you. All you need to do is get yourself there and then it’s over to me!

Think fresh juices to start your day, nourishing whole foods all weekend long to energise your soul, cooking demonstrations and hands on workshops, spas under the stars, walks along the beach, camaraderie with other amazing ladies on the same journey as you, in the most incredible tranquil location in Whananaki, 2 ¾ hrs north of Auckland… it doesn’t get much better than that.

Imagine having this to look forward to later in the year – an unforgettable experience as Lynda said (see Lynda’s testimonial below):

Let me take you on a wee journey… watch this video so you can imagine what it’s like to attend a retreat… this could be you next time. My next retreat is on the 25th-27th November, 2022


This is a weekend to recharge your batteries, take some time out and immerse yourself in absolute goodness. Leave feeling refreshed, energised & revived, with the knowledge about amazing nourishing food, what it can do for you and regain enthusiasm for cooking, exercise and life!

As Sarah said, “I’m really excited about this because I suck at cooking. I am really lazy in the kitchen so this is going to be fantastic and just what I need personally.”

What People Are Saying About The Retreat…

"I learnt so many great tips and loved learning and sharing with all the amazing women there. I didn’t realise how much I needed 48 hours focusing on what I need to do to feel good and healthy. After being the rock that everyone else in my life needed, I hadn’t clocked the heavy load I had been carrying. It was liberating to put my needs first and to focus on what I need to feel good to live and eat more healthy (and have lots of fun too!). I have already drastically reduced my gluten intake to see how that feels, and I’m absolutely committed to the resolutions I made in the clarity session the last day. Sign me up for next year, I loved it!"

Susanne Chapman

"This was my first ever retreat! I highly recommend the experience to anyone who is looking to learn something new about healthy and delicious food, how to create new habits without being overwhelmed and take the chance to rest and relax. This retreat was carefully planned out and well balanced to include exercise, free time to enjoy gentle walks, hot-tubbing, or just chilling, reading, and sleeping with no other demands from home. Be prepared for some healthy, delicious, and creative workshops and dishes to nourish your body, resurrect your balance and peace, and to absorb the amazing energy of a beautiful place... plus the wonderful women you meet make it all so worthwhile. Thank you Wick for making my very first retreat something I will never forget."

Lynda Edwards

A great mix of exercise, wellness and nutrition sessions intertwined with delicious food and down time. I definitely came away with some keep tips. I think what you are doing is so incredibly valuable and gives people the opportunity to share, reflect, learn and grow in such a supportive environment. An amazing lady you are; you have found your niche Wick!"
