Bespoke Retreat with Dr Orlena, Coast Brava

A retreat is a fantastic way to combine relaxation, fun and a purpose.  I offer personal retreats in my stunning home town of Palafrugell on the Costa Brava in Spain.

You can enjoy the magnificent surroundings whilst we work together on your personal goal. 

What is a Retreat?

A holiday with purpose!

Think of having your own personal guide to help you.

Before the retreat, we decide on your goal. (For example, starting your weight loss journey, creating your ideal life.)

Together we decide what activities you want to do. (Examples of activities: coastal walking, sea swimming, kayaking, relaxing, yoga, tai chi, cycling.)

I create your ideal retreat that combines coaching, learning and your activities.

Here’s an example.

What Alexis Thought About the Retreat

"I loved all of the retreat! It was fantastic,

I really enjoyed doing all the activities. All of them! 

I loved having the chance to get away. To plan the year ahead, to evaluate my life and what I'm doing.

It was awesome to have Orlena's guidance both for the coaching sessions and local knowledge.

I really enjoyed the retreat and would highly recommend a retreat with Dr Orlena."
