      “Thank you for such a fabulous weekend, it was amazing and I feel it delivered so much more than what was stated. For me, I have loved how much more mindful I have been since the retreat and noticing how important daily rituals can be.”

      Bec Burgess – Mumma – Havelock North


      “This was the most ahh mazing retreat.  Spiced with every part of magic.  The luxury setting, the medicinal food… the meditation and the yoga. I’m still basking in the experience.  You have a great gift.  I highly recommend. “

      Lisa Humphrey – Stylist – Christchurch 


      “The retreat ran so smoothly and perfectly.  Cape South was just the right mix of glamour and comfort. Kate’s yoga and meditation always resets me and fills me with hope.”

      Alexandra Tylee – Pipi Café  - Havelock North


      “This was a wonderful escape to focus on and pamper yourself and realign all your intentions while nourishing your body, mind and soul.  Cape South is an exceptional venue.  Its location, elegance and facilities.  I much preferred this experience than going on retreat where I would have to sleep in bunk beds and have everything go back to basics. “



      “It was ALL so great.  While only a weekend, it was a real holiday. “
