Exclusive Wellbeing Healing Retreats on the French Riviera

with The Mind Body and Soul Coach Kathy and restaurateur Robert.

 Life Coaching or NLP, Psych-K, Personal Fitness, Yoga, Zumba, Reiki, Mindfulness or Meditation,

good food and good times are all part of the package!

These are exclusive and rare wellbeing retreats for up to 8 guests with activities and therapies designed around your wishes.

Prices are much lower this year to reflect our lockdown restricted times.

Your welcoming hosts are Robert and Kathy.  Former French restaurateur and food and wine connoisseur, Robert delights in catering for every appetite.  Kathy, The Mind Body and Soul Coach, offers a wide choice of one-to-one and group sessions for holistic wellbeng and health - mind body and soul.  She has over 40 years teaching experience in dance and fitness and recently yoga, and over 18 years experience in energy healing and talking "therapies".

We believe that good health and good living go hand in hand.  At a ReikiCannes Mind Body And Soul Retreat, you can relax, rejuvenate and explore the beautiful French Riviera.  The ReikiCannes experience is a mixture of French home comforts - including our own hen and goose eggs - with a touch of luxury and a tailored programme of positively life-changing wellbeing and healing sessions to suit your evolving needs.

You could give yourself a positive Life Coaching boost, keep fit (styles to suit you including yoga, aerobics, zumba, strength and balance conditioning), balance your chakras with Reiki and healing meditations.  Maybe you just need a soothing sanctuary to plan a new normal or to recover from lockdown and re-boot your life. Could you change a habit, stop a fear or get rid of unhealthy behaviours and unwanted beliefs?  NLP and Psych-K can help with that.  Enjoy some deeply transformative, quality time for yourself in our welcoming, holistic, comforting care.  You could return home having dropped a phobia, feeling energised and balanced, full of faith, confidence, motivation and inspiration with realistic plans for the next stage of life's journey.  This mind body and soul retreat is exclusively tailored to your needs.  namaste,  Kathy
