Nourish yourself with happy thoughts, clean eating and positive energy at the


Balanced Babe Retreat. 

Working mums, are you...

  • rushing to pick up and drop off so there is no time to stop?

  • working late and missing meals that your body needs to function?

  • getting cranky over "the little things"?

  • feeling tired all the time?

  • out of balance with your life?


Instead imagine ...

  • feeling nourished enough to have more to give to others.

  • having the energy to enjoy your family and your career

  • being centred enough to respond rather than react to life

  • feeling more connected and confident in your body

  • living your best life rather than someone else's

If you ready to shift from exhausted to energised, then I invite you to:

Get ready for a weekend to yourself where you can enjoy delicious organic meals, where you can reset your approach to taking care of yourself, where you can soak up the sun and sand on Australia's iconic 7 Mile Beach and listen to the waves crashing on the beach, where you can spend a day steeped in an organic cooking immersion from paddock to plate that finishes with a sumptuous lunch and wine, spaces are limited to 5 incredible like-minded mothers, and where you can nourish your mind and body so you can move forward energised and balanced as a woman.

What other mums have said:

"The Balanced Babes Retreat is the best thing I could have done for myself as a woman and a mum. The weekend encompassed the perfect blend of relaxation (through yoga, meditation and an amazing massage) and productivity (through sessions, one-to-one coaching and group conversations). As a working mum to a young baby, I find myself constantly on autopilot and then complaining about not getting things done. However, through the Balanced Babes Retreat, I was given the tools and insight I need to be able to process my thinking styles and better prepare myself for the challenges of day-to-day life.  - Fi Morrison

"The Balanced Babes Retreat – it was worth every minute and it’s good to find out why being balanced is different from having balance. Though I have done a fair amount of my own research into the science of wellbeing, positive psychology and completed various strength profiles, I gained a lot from Shannon - further understanding of my thinking patterns, easy to do and maintain tools and techniques to embed the practices into my everyday life and the support and camaraderie of a group of women (we had some thought provoking conversations!)." – Sha-mayne C.

"I attended a Balanced Babes Retreat ...and came away refreshed and rejuvenated. Shannon provided me with insight into my thinking styles and gave me the tools to become more ‘’balanced’’. Instead of constantly blaming my busy lifestyle for making me feel anxious and overwhelmed, I left knowing that I had the power to take control of the busy lifestyle I lead as a working mother by using a range of mindfulness processes. I felt slightly indulgent when I booked the Retreat but discovered that it was truly the best thing I could do for me and my family – they too are reaping the benefits."

"The Care Factor and this beautiful lady Shannon Young was who ran the retreat I went to. Seriously this is the best thing I've ever done... The most self-discovering weekend that I know" Lani
