The Empowered, Embodied Woman Retreat

Australia 1:1 Retreats

At the core of every woman lies her sensual, sexual, radiant self. Left unseen and unexpressed, she suffers greatly.

 Does your heart ever hurt because you feel as if …

  • No-one really sees you?
  • No-one listens to what you’re truly saying?
  • No-one really “gets” you and neither do they care to try to understand?
  • You’re walking through life somehow disconnected from the experiences your yearn for and the feelings you desire to have?
  • Feelings of real satisfaction, sensual enjoyment and connection are nowhere to be found?

No doubt you have been motivated by our highly masculine world to strive, struggle, push, suck it up and get on with it. But that comes at such a huge cost to you! Is it worth the price that you are paying?


Losing connection to the spark of your feminine essence is like pouring water on the flame and light of your soul, whereby:

  • Unprocessed emotions get stuck  – draining your energy and sending your mind into frustrating and repetitive looping thoughts generating a deadening resistance
  • You look outside of yourself for ways to soothe those stuck emotions (using drugs, alcohol or becoming a workaholic just to name a few)
  • Unhealed sexual traumas create a thick armour that leaves your body (and you) desensitized and unresponsive to pleasure
  • You and your relationships suffer as you go against the flow that you were born to move with naturally
  • Your skin lacks lustre, your body is tired and your eyes are dulled in response to these heavy, inner blocks

Let’s face it. Our modern world supports and rewards us for living in our heads, ruminating on how we should act, things we should do and focusing on our never-ending to-do lists. Sound familiar?

Reconnecting to your body (including your heart), and to your sexuality in particular, will inspire emotional wellness and nurture greater physical wellbeing for you. Imagine the deep feeling of freedom and vitality you could experience if you were finally free from the burden of guilt, shame, denial and fear of expressing your feminine radiance.

We are speaking of the prized radiance that brings you

  • More time spent in flow (moving you easily toward personal desires and goals)
  • More passion …
  • Abundant vitality to achieve your dreams …
  • More satisfying relationships
  • Greater feelings of ease, compassion and grace
  • AND a deeper connection with life

But how do we access this radiance?

You are probably aware that all the answers live within you, already. So how do you find those answers? Giving yourself the time and space to reconnect with your true feminine essence is the essential doorway to discovering the answers you seek.   


IMAGINE…  a private retreat … with yourself.

  • No distractions.
  • No-one else to take care of … just you.
  • No never ending tasks to attend to.

Imagine receiving the love and nurturance that restores you to trust, clarity and courage.

Imagine being truly seen, heard, felt and safely held so that you may soften into your body and dive into a rediscovery of your true feelings and desires.

Your purest wisdom awaits your remembering and reviving.

Yoni Mapping Therapy (YMT) A holistic healing modality working specifically with pelvic health care and sexual wellbeing. This is an opportunity to be met intimately with the love and respect that your yoni deserves. So many of us come from and still carry an unhealthy relationship to the most sacred and powerful place within our selves. YMT is a chance to reclaim your beauty, comfort and pleasure so that you can be ALL of the beauty you are.
Restorative Yoga with Massage & Guided Meditation One on one restorative yoga sessions drenched in luxury and sensuality. Soften the body into gentle supported yoga poses to allow your nervous system to completely relax. With guided mediation and touch to enhance the benefits of the poses, this is a delicious way to tend to the tenderness of the heart and bathe her in surrender. With essential oils, soothing tunes this is bound to lead you into a night of deep sleep.
Therapeutic Touch For Women (TTW) With a therapeutic blend of zenthai shiatsu and oil massage you’ll be guided into your body by soothing meditative guidance on where to place your attention in order to meet and release tension and trauma stored in the physical, the mental and the emotional terrain of your being. Through the willingness to be present to what is you will release with breath and sound, maybe tears, maybe laughter, the old stories and future hopes that hold you hostage from inhabiting the pleasure of yourself in this present moment.

Cheryl W

It's been just over a week since completing the programme and I feel like a different person. My family, friends and work colleagues have remarked on my positive and happy appearance... Words cannot express my gratitude for your dedication in helping me to reclaim my life and the joy I now feel waking up everyday knowing I am surrounded by my loved ones.

Shelly Wright

Beyond my expectation on multiple levels. Life saving and changing. Thank you.

Karli Moulston

Yoga Teacher

In November 2009 I spent a week working with Izabella on issues relating to femininity, personal healing and relationships. Izabella taught me how to connect with and process my feelings as they arise. Learning this skill has had ongoing benefits for me with taking ownership of my feelings and listening to what they are telling me. Since my retreat I have experienced ongoing benefits in my relationships with my family and am now in a wonderful intimate relationship and am able to communicate my feelings as they arise. I have also been utilising strategies for embracing my femininity and have never felt more at one with myself. I highly recommend Izabella as a coach and facilitator of personal growth and healing.

Frequently Asked Questions about emPower Health Retreats

How is Natural Attitudes different from other retreats?

At Natural Attitudes we work from the inside out. Meaning, changing how you think and therefore how you feel. Clearing emotional blocks and old, limiting mindsets and creating new possibilities is the true foundation for real change. Here, you’re inspired and juiced up from within rather than temporarily motivated by goals fuelled by limited willpower. Natural Attitudes emPower Health Retreats engage the physical modalities of high vibrational raw foods, natural surrounds, emBody massages and intuitive movement as an accelerating support for the personal inner shifts.

– We don’t give lifestyle advice but we do teach you to connect to your own answers.
– We don’t spend much time on the problems but we do facilitate you into a state of accessing the right re-solutions.
– We don’t pity your situation but we do encourage you to connect to your inspiration and insight.
– We don’t set goals with you, but we guide you to connect to your desires and how to truly allow them to manifest.
– We don’t force an emotional catharsis but we do guide you back to your natural state of joy, love and peace.

Once you know how to tap in and turn this on, you can continue to experience more joy, happiness, ease and confidence.

How do I book a retreat?

You can also fill in an online booking form where we will get in contact with you. When the deposit is in place you will receive an email confirmation with all relevant details of your retreat, what to bring and a further online health history form to fill out.

Your retreat begins at 10am on the first day of retreat and completes by 4pm of the last day. For example, a 3 day retreat would start 10am on Day 1 and finish 4pm Day 3. Includes 2 nights stay.

How should I prepare before my retreat?

We strongly recommend giving yourself the gift of you during your journey with us, and showing up fully. Please minimize the amount of contact with others via mobiles and internet during your retreats, and if possible completely switch off, or set a once a day time to quickly check your messages.  This allows you to reconnect more deeply with you and solidify some new healthy habits without outside habits and distractions pulling on you.

If you are ready to kick habits such as smoking, drinking, recreational drugs and other substances we recommend you consider ways of preparing for this, before the retreat start. You may like to reduce your intake, however we will support you if it is something you begin during your stay here. All retreats are designed to address core obstacles, so anything that these substances are masking, is often addressed. Smoking is not permitted within indoor retreat spaces.

What is the follow-up after my retreat?

After your retreat is complete, depending on your retreat program, you will have a set number of follow-up emPower sessions which you can use at a ‘as needed’ basis. It is up to you to make contact and schedule your follow-up sessions. We understand that habits can take time to die, so if you find yourself triggered and unable fully utilise the tools we have shared with you, then scheduling a session as soon as possible is recommended, before the momentum of old patterns gathers any further. As we have a record of the key aspects of your process from the retreat, we can quickly and skillfully support you to regroup, without having to go through it all again blow by blow.

What is the payment, cancellation, transfer or refund policy for residential retreats?

A 50% deposit must be made to secure your booking space. All deposits are non-refundable, however in the event of you not being able to attend your designated dates, dates can be transferred to a future date within 6 months of original date, if we are notified not less than 14 days prior to the original booked date.

Full payment as per the payment total is due upon completion of retreat, including also in circumstances where for any unforeseeable reasons you need to return home earlier than the set retreat date completion.

What is the food like?

All meals are sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian and gourmet raw living cuisine. Where possible we use organic and fresh ingredients from our garden or local produce. Some retreats utilize fresh to order gourmet raw catering. Live foods have enzymes present that support your digestion and therefore allow more nutrients to be accessed by the body. This means more energy and a deep rejuvenation of your body’s cells for superior health. Guests consistently experience feeling deliciously satisfied and full, yet not bloated or tired like from conventional cooked meals. As we say, your body never lies about what truly feels good for it.
