Skin and Yin Weekend Self-Care Retreat MAY 17-19, 2019 

Treat yourself to a weekend of self-care bliss. Daily yoga, meditation and acupuncture treatments (including cosmetic acupuncture), healthy food prepared by a private chef and a venue that represents an iconic piece of modern architecture with 360 degree panoramic views to enjoy it from. This exclusive retreat by Emma Maidment and Dr Abbie is the perfect opportunity to get away from the busyness of life and look after your body and soul for a weekend.

This is a weekend to rejuvenate the Yin within. Sometimes you just need a quiet escape to reset, relax and be rejuvenated to tackle your goals with vigour.

Yin in Eastern medicines is a the deeper quiet nourishment our mind and bodies need to feel centred, calm and connect with our inner selves and purpose. When our Yin is nourished we feel a sense of balance, our aches reduce, our minds stop racing and our productivity becomes focused and clear.

Our home for the weekend is Sky High Mt Franklin, an iconic piece of architecture located on top of a ridge directly in front of Mt Franklin, boasting dramatic views of the surrounding hills and farmland.

This is a space for wellness and rejuvenation. With 360 degree panoramic views, you can come to enjoy the uniqueness of this property in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. Or dive a little deeper and use this stunning location to contemplate a bigger vision for your life. The home intimately engages with its context and climate, drawing on local traditions with the stone walls featured in the Mt Franklin district.

After practice, dinner is cooked by our onsite personal chef and to be served, along with organic wine (or kombucha if that’s your vibe)


Sleep in, relax and roll into our yoga space for a slow flow and mediation with Emma. Afterwards breakfast prepared by our personal chef will be served. Eat slowly, enjoy the view, relax by the pool or read that book you’ve been meaning to read! Dr Abbie will be scheduling treatments throughout the day for you. There will be the option of an afternoon hike around the gorgeous local area, if walking’s not your thing we suggest a nap! :) We’ll say goodbye to the sun with a sunset restorative yin yoga and mediation session with Emma before settling into dinner cooked by our private chef. After dinner, Dr Abbie will take you through a fun, interactive and let's be honest, hilarious workshop on face reading. You’ll learn what your lines mean, how to read other peoples and what wrinkles really tell us about someone's soul! It’s life changing to say the least.


Moving slowly into Sunday with a slow flow with Emma, followed by breakfast and your final Dr Abbie treatments. You’ll head back home at your leisure feeling rejuvenated for the week ahead.
