Annie, Bali 2022

Ellen's sober retreat:
Highly recommended amazing self-care experience to complement anybody’s sobriety journey. A relaxing wonderful week in a beautiful location (Ubud) overlooking rice fields meeting new likeminded friends & gathering for daily morning sunrise yoga (no yoga experience necessary!).  Plenty of social connection over tasty meals and sharing circles. The range of well-being activities and their choice locations were fabulous for mind and body including waterfall walks, sound-baths, cooking and crafting and a great way to see beautiful Bali and the countryside. A real week of relaxation whilst resetting intentions and recharging the body but also helped by a huge range of obligatory spa treatments I undertook.  Who knew that travelling alone could be so much fun. I came back a different woman!  It was totally worth the investment in myself.

Melissa, Bali 2022

To say this Bali trip was transformational would be an understatement. Coming into it knowing nobody, I immediately felt comfortable with Ellen, Maree, and the group. The retreat was relaxing, healing, and supportive. I returned a better, more compassionate person with friends all over the globe. Bali is beautiful, Ellen is wonderful, and I wish I could re-live this retreat every day. 
She is the coach you need to motivate you and tell you that it’s all going to be okay.”
