About our Retreats
A nourishing blend of relaxation, movement, meditation, delicious organic seasonal food, learning & most of all time to put yourself first. Hosted at the luxurious Cape South Country Retreat and Wellness Centre facilitated by Kate McLeay (Mumma Soulfood) and a team of her favourite local legends.
An opportunity to step out of life’s routines and dedicate real time to putting yourself first. Over the retreat we will share wisdom on holistic wellness and how to positively enhance this for more clarity, ease and enjoyment of life. With decades of experience in education, hospitality and adventures we’ve seen the profound changes these experiences can bring and what happens when people take time for themselves.
A menu of activities over the weekend is available to choose from, along with plenty of time to rest, connect and rejuvenate. Attend all on the schedule or select what makes your heart sing.

"I signed up for a four day retreat not knowing what to expect having never meditated or practiced yoga or qigong before. I also hadn't gone without meat or dairy as a part of my daily diet before. I am now sold on the benefits of meditation, yoga and qigong not to mention how amazing I felt after this short tine on a plant based diet. I thoroughly recommend attending a wellness retreat with Kate and Cam and their great team." Anna Hutchinson
“What a phenomenal weekend it was. You and your team totally spoilt us and we both agreed it was an exceptional experience.” Cath
“Thanks again for the most amazing magical weekend. Its going to stay with me forever.” Joanna
