As a naturopath and colonic hydrotherapist it was easy to do this by myself but what this retreat offers that you can’t do by yourself is to totally immerse yourself in a week with just you and like-minded people to really allow whatever detox you need to happen. In my situation it was an emotional and rejuvenation retreat, it’s different for everyone. Leisa and her staff are extremely good, professional and supportive at what they do and from the choices of juices to the education that you receive on all levels of health, and it’s done with love and fun. I would totally recommend that if you are thinking of doing this then choose Leisa. It’s a fantastic retreat. I loved it, even the uncomfortable bits.
Embracing Health – Wow! – Thank you Leisa for passing on your knowledge and the professionalism, thoughtfulness, support and confidentiality. Your staff also knowledgeably with great people skills. What a rewarding week it has been – I will be taking away so much – I now love yoga – thank you Oksana for your skill and calming voice. I have learnt to breathe properly assisting my body to heal. The food amazingly delicious with real flavours. The surrounds so breathtaking. My body so clean now with clear mindedness and vitality. I want to live again!
Wow! So glad I waited till after the closing ceremony to write this. What a heart-opening, uplifting, educational and spiritually soothing week this has been. Leisa – Outstanding! You and your team are remarkable. Congratulations on offering undoubtedly the best retreat experience in Bali! See you next year xoxo
Once again the Embracing Health team have delivered a well-structured, holistic approach to achieving optimum health. I loved being able to relax and join into the educational lectures, delicious juices and the yummiest raw food!

One of the most profound, informative, relaxing, pampering, life-changing weeks of my life! See you next year!
The term ‘retreat’ barely captures the profound learning experience of Leisa’s 8 day detox journey. It was a privilege to be invited to share, through such a carefully constructed scaffold program, the deep and extensive knowledge that clearly underpins its design. Delicious nourishing juices enable hunger– free fasting; colonics look after the other end. Cooking classes and many take home goodies help guarantee that the learning doesn’t stop at the close of the retreat. Leisa has created around her an extraordinary nurturing team whose spirit infuses everything – the yoga, the massage, the food – all the services available. As a lifelong educator of adults, I know a good one when I see one – Leisa is a natural. Thank you!
This being my first retreat I wasn’t sure what to expect event though I was told to “be open.” The beautiful spiritual feeling here was immediate for me. The trees, the cottages, the natural environment, the walking track and the beach. What an amazing place this is. Then began our fast for the next five days as we got to taste the different flavours. Along with this, my favourite, the yoga. I am converted. The feeling of being able to have permission to let go of all past hates, angers etc. and allow all that is pure, good, beautiful into my body was an amazing experience. Then the walks along the beautiful beach were outstanding. Each day was a journey of discovery for me and finding that I can really and truly love my body for all the scars and ‘flabby bits’ and now nurture every part internal and external. I feel soft now. I feel renewed and look forward to applying all the learning’s that is going to make very significant changes in my life.
This was my second experience, and it just gets better! I feel I have a far deeper understanding of all the amazing information Leisa so generously gives. The team of people she gathered together to support us were simply AMAZING!!
This was my second Embracing Health retreat in 12 months. I had such an amazing life changing experience on the first retreat that I just knew that I had to come back. Leisa communicates how important and easy it is to be truly healthy and gives everyone the knowledge and power to make real changes into their lives. After the first retreat I changed my diet to an organic, whole food with lots of raw superfoods, and doubled my energy levels. The second retreat has furthered my detox experience and my intention of dumping as much ‘old baggage’ was fulfilled. Leisa is an amazing spirit that attracts a unique and nurturing team of staff and retreat guests that help you on your healing journey. Thank you!
I have never experienced anything so physically, mentally, and emotionally cleansing than this Embracing Health Retreat. This is my second raw food retreat with Leisa, and the team are amazingly talented healers with Leisa leading the show. Throughout the whole week, I felt supported as well as nourished. The information, workshops and group activities were excellent quality. And the bonding with the people in the group has created many friendships. I am able to manage my health and diet with more confidence and assurance with the tools to carry on at home. Thank you Leisa and the Byron Bay Team! I’m coming back again for sure! Xx
I felt nurtured and surrounded by loving caring people who had so much integrity.
I was totally burnt out when I came here, drinking 12 coffee’s a day. Yes I did suffer from a headache for one day while at the retreat, but it didn’t stop me from enjoying myself. I hated fruit before I came here, I even told myself that fruit makes me sick. Then ‘Wow’ the Health Conscious Chef Cat changed that the first day. I came here because with the way I was living I would be dead in ten years, if I hadn’t found Leisa’s Retreat. I know you can’t believe me yet when I say that, but you are not in my shoes. What have you got to lose by trying Leisa’s Retreats for your self? But only come if you are prepared to have a life changing exerience! For example I now have a better relationship with myself and my body / mind transformation.. Wow! I am glad it was here when I needed it so much. We are all grateful that you decided to take this path and that you love sharing with others – Thank you Leisa and Team!
Leisa and her team have put together a retreat that makes transitioning to a healthier way of living easy, and so much fun. I arrived overweight, chronically exhausted and and lacking enthusiasm for my life. Too tired to implement the changes I knew were essential to feel well, I can’t emphasise enough the value of this retreat in supporting me in this task. 8 days later, I am feeling full of energy and optimism, and excitement about my life and the plans I have for it. I’m confident I have the tools to continue on the path to optimal well being. Leisa, you are an inspiration. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and expereince, and for providing an integrated, holistic programme that is the perfect opportunity for embracing a healthier life. You have gathered around you an exceptional team of people and I feel so privileged to have been a part of this experience. I cannot recommend it highly enough to anyone who wants to take their wellbeing to another level.
