Ageing gracefully - A retreat for women over 40
As women we start to change in the run-up and during our menopausal years. And it’s important to us that we age in a physically healthy and emotionally balanced way. So we’ve created a unique retreat on women’s wellness. It offers you the opportunity to deepen your understanding of your body and your relationship with life from two different yet complementary perspectives: the medical and the energetic. The result: wherever you are on this very individual journey you can age gracefully, without losing it!
Ageing Gracefully at Bovey Castle:
6 pm, Thursday January 25th 2018
5 pm, Sunday January 28th 2018
In other words: banish night sweats and mood swings and boost self-compassion and sexual magnetism. None of these are mutually exclusive!
Our two loving and expert women will guide you through the biological and emotional minefield of our changing wisdom over a long weekend in a country house hotel in Devon.
Here’s what to look forward to:
- Workshops on our health and hormones: HRT or more natural solutions and how to navigate change in the run-up and during the menopause.
- Workshops to nurture the fabulous, female essence that’s within us all whatever stage of life, so we feel vibrant, radiant and grounded. And most importantly, in flow.
- A one-on-one session with each of our experts.
- Early morning womb yoga classes.
- Own double room in luxury accommodation in private lodges in the grounds of award-winning Bovey Castle.
- Healthy yet heart-warming food (this isn’t a detox retreat).
- Nearly 300 acres of rolling countryside for afternoon walks.
- And open fires on your return.
- Optional spa treatments.
- Opportunity for hormonal blood testing and a 10% discount on your first post-retreat consultation with either expert.
- Complimentary transfers to the hotel from Exeter station or airport

Meet The Team
Kalindi’s specialist interest is working with women (and couples) in sensuality and sexuality. She has spent 20 years exploring her own and other people’s energy. Her profound understanding of the human energy system, psychology and sexual nature comes from her study and practice of Taoism, Tantra, Vedic mysticism, bodywork and being present with life as it unfolds.
All this has taught Kalindi to be body-sentient: when working with women individually or in a group, she can feel people’s energy. She holds a safe space, guiding people to release any blockages or old wounds of emotional or physical pain.
Her particular embodied practices focus on breath, movement and creating a healthy body relationship with particular attention on the womb space, hips, heart, spine and vagina - all areas that feed one’s self-compassion and the vibrancy they exude. She believes that we all have an amazing ability to change.
