About The Event

Kate and Louise invite you to join them on a three-night retreat on the North Devon coast and look forward to sharing with you a weekend that promises to be Restorative, Informative, Nourishing, Educational, Restful & Uplifting.

Would you love to… 

  • put yourself first, if only for a few days?  
  • reframe how you see this stage of life?  
  • find out how to feel more in control?  
  • explore ways to minimise stress, anxiety, and the internal chatter?  
  • make changes to your fitness routine but just don’t know where to start?

Yes? Then we invite you to join us in this most tranquil and enchanting of settings to…

  • create a sense of calm and strength - both physical and emotional
  • take the opportunity to press pause, relax and reset 
  • learn and practice some take home tools to help reshape the next chapters of your life 
  • stretch your mind, body and soul with yoga designed to support you through menopause and beyond 
  • future proof your body with daily strength training with a key focus on technique so you  feel confident incorporating this into your fitness routine once home 
  • find joy - we don’t want you to stay stuck in the story 
  • take charge of your menopause journey, your health, your body, your future


Lee Bay is on the North Devon Jurassic coastal path and offers a variety of lovely coastal walks to enjoy. The beach is a short stroll from the venue, which is set in 3 acres of ancient woodland and there really is no better time to visit than spring, when the bluebells will be in full bloom. The accommodation is in 3 beautiful shared (twin) cabins, so why not bring a friend? Each cabin has its own deck and outdoor furniture for those quieter moments of reflection. Shared bathroom facilities are in a further cabin. Mealtimes are in the main house and adjacent is the modern studio with infinity deck, so we are hoping for beautiful spring sunshine to let the outside in. You will be safely held in an all-female, safe, supportive, nurturing open space; one in which you can learn, share, listen, laugh and just be. The host of the main house is a lovely older gentleman. He will be present at mealtimes and is a mine of information about the land and surrounding area of outstanding beauty.   

What can you expect?

  • Daily yoga practice with Louise Pitman @louisepitman_wellbeing which have been designed with menopause in mind
  • Daily resistance training session with Kate Oakley @yourfuturefit, beginning with a Technique Masterclass – modified for all levels
  • To be nourished by perfectly balanced organic vegan / vegetarian meals designed to suit hormonal fluctuations
  • To be soothed by a gong bath with our gong bath practitioner to promote deep sleep and inner calm
  • The opportunity to swim as a group and gain some of the benefits that cold water has to offer during menopause
  • A nutritional workshop with our resident chef focused on how to best nourish and support our bodies during menopause
  • To learn some breath techniques designed to alleviate symptoms
  • Time to talk informally with your hosts and other participants to gain some shared solutions or support
  • Free time to enjoy the surrounding area of Lee Bay, which nestles between Ilfracombe and Woolacombe on the Jurassic Coastline. Take a stroll to the beach for a swim or sit out on your deck to read a book and relax overlooking the bluebells. Relish the peace with no demands on you
  •  A fantastic goodie bag to take home
