My wife came last year with her mum and raved about this retreat. I thought I would have been starving during the 5 days of juicing. But the body adjusts and it was easy! It was organised to perfection with Leisa and her staff ensuring we had enough downtime between activities and lectures. I learnt so much, all the lectures were awesome. I will go home with so much info on how to be healthy and how to eat better. The juices/smoothies/raw food that Cat, the Chef, prepared were “TO LIVE FOR”. They were awesome!! So for all you males out there, it was an excellent retreat, regarded as one of the best of it’s kind. Other males also attend so you will not be alone. So get off your butt and give it a go. You will not regret it!

This is actually the second time I have attended this retreat in Bali. Last year I came with my Mum. It was a beautiful mother-daughter experience. Mum has an autoimmune disease which really worries me and I was always lecturing her about health and what she ‘should do’, so we came for a much needed break and for someone else to talk and demonstrate health to Mum instead of a nagging annoying daughter! I wanted Mum to FEEL the difference when you detox and feed your body what it needs in order to revamp and heal itself. After coming home a new person, I began to create new healthy habits in my life and this year I returned with my hubby. I raved so much about how amazing the retreat was and he was keen to experience it all himself, so how could I say no! We had the most amazing time. It was excellent to share and learn the importance of health in our lives together, and we had so much fun and met some amazing people along the way. Initially Mick thought “OMG 5 days without food and only juicing, I don’t think I’ll survive”. But it was a ‘breeze’ and as time passed, he was amazed at how good he felt. Every activity or talk motivated or resonated with us both in some way and by the end of the retreat we felt alive in so many ways, physically and mentally. An awesome experience. Thank you Leisa.

Once again, this retreat has provided the perfect opportunity for me to reconnect with myself and what I know to be true and necessary for my health and happiness. Leisa and her wonderful team run a program that comprehensively meets the needs of a diverse group of participants, so that everyone feels heard, supported and nurtured. i can’t imagine how anyone could leave this experience without a sense of having been restored, physically, emotionally and spiritually. I am so grateful to have the retreats as a resource when I need it to restore my equilibrium and remind me that I am a beautiful, vibrant and loving women. Namaste.

This was not only a detox and personal healing experience it was a hugely significant and beneficial learning experience. The opportunity to both relax, heal and larn make it one of the best ‘holiday’ experiences I have ever had. Oh! and you wont meet a more dedicated, brilliant and caring group of people running it. Leisa and her team are fantastic.

Leisa, this was undeniably a life-changing experience – the best money ever spent! Your extensive knowledge about nutrition and your passion for holistic wellness was conveyed in a way that afforded us the ideal blend of education, healing and fun. Most of all you and your caring and dynamic team have empowered me with the tools and confidence to make some necessary changes in my life. Thank you for an amazing week – I will wholeheartedly recommend your retreats to others.

I cam here 15 kgs overweight due to giving more to everyone else but myself. I was drinking too much, smoking (socially) and not taking 100% care of myself and running a successful business and being in an unhappy one sided relationship. I honestly feel so refreshed and re-energised, now I had heaps of energy before but now I have so so much more. I was the worlds first fussy eater, now I can eat Raw juices and eat raw food. i have learnt to ‘Let Go’, wow! Something I have struggled with for 43 years. I am alive, safe, beautiful, well and the most important… I now love myself! Thank you!

I came on this retreat with my girlfriend Vicky, not knowing what really it entailed or what to expect and Wow! it has been the most wonderful experience I have ever had. Leisa and her team are a very special and unique group of people so full of warmth, caring and knowledge beyond anything i have experienced before. I have learnt so much about food and nutrition and soaked up every bit of information that I could to take home and change my life for the better. Most importantly I have learnt about myself and feel that the real me that has been tucked away for so long can finally come out to play. I would recommend this retreat to anyone it is just life changing – really it is. An experience no one should miss!

To Leisa and the team, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. You have changed my life xxx

Anyone who is thinking about taking positive steps with their health needs this retreat! After my 7 days on this retreat my mind is clearer, my skin clearer, my body is clearer. I have learnt practical steps that are easy to put in place at home for the benefit of all my family! I will definitely be coming back next year! The team of absolute professionals that Leisa has put together is the best I have ever experienced. I have traveled extensively around the world in the health and beauty industry and this is the most all encompassing retreat I have ever experienced.

This is the first time I have EVER done anything like this and it is the best thing I could have ever done for my body and mind. I have never learnt so much and felt so inspired to really make permanent changes for myself to live the life I really want. Thanks so much to Leisa and her amazing team.

I cannot recommend Leisa and the Embracing Health Team highly enough. I attended the Byron Bay Retreat in September. The program was carefully planned with daily group exercise and lectures providing us with the tools to continue a healthy and happy lifestyle at home.The team atmosphere and the care and compassion shown to us was outstanding. This truly was a life changing experience for me and I feel grateful to have had the opportunity to attend.

I am first and foremost a passionate lover of Australian and American muscle cars, and as such do not fit the profile of your usual health retreat client. I have to say that the experience I’ve had at Leisa’s retreat has taught me a lot, and exposed me to some incredible experiences. I don’t think I’ll look at food in the same way ever again. Eating great food is a gift we need to ourselves. Most men wouldn’t even consider coming on one of these retreats, but they really would be missing out on a lot. They need to do it! I’ll still enjoy flooring the gas pedals in our Mustang and XR8, so I don’t think I’ve lost any of my masculinity by doing this. I’ll be happier and healthier, and will be able to enjoy cars long into my old age because I’ll be fit enough to get in and out of them! Do it guys!

Dear Leisa, my gratitude and admiration is overwhelming. For all you and your team have taught and shared from the heart this week, my sincere thanks. I may have waited over 40 years to fulfill my dream to attend a health retreat, but feel I chose the very best and it was worth the wait! Although I’ve experienced and learnt so much while here in this amazing group, I believe this is only the beginning, and that the impact from this week will reverberate through my future in so many positive ways. Saddened the retreat is drawing to a close, yet equally excited to be returning home rejuvenated and ready to incorporate the wealth of valuable information you’ve given us into our daily lives. Looking forward to your book with anticipation and to the results of your work with the informative (and highly entertaining!) Cat!. The world will be a better place for your commitment and hard work. It already is! Wishing you and every member of your awesome team radiant health, endless abundance and much love and laughter. Love and hugs.
