MAYFLY retreats

Mayfly Maven Retreats provide entrepreneurs, business leaders and professionals with a holistic reset through 1-2-1 coaching, self-reflection tools and goal-setting sessions within meaningful masterclasses.


During one of our retreats, you will experience a beautiful and truly immersive experience, with activities like meditation, yoga or Qigong and free time in luxurious accommodation, topped off with a nutritionist-curated menu, all so you can improve your health and vitality throughout the retreat.

This foundation will enable you to work with the team to uncover the impact of current elements in your life and identify how you can reset and plan to drive forward strategic goals for your future.

We achieve all this by learning, working, and collaborating in a nurturing, safe environment that produces transformational results.

Loved the location and people. Perfect opportunity to reflect and consider the next steps, both professionally and in my private life.

The retreat in Ibiza was so deeply nourishing. The food, qigong, meditations workshops, and all the one to one sessions. The team went above and beyond. What I have taken back home with me is a new found enthusiasm for what I want to move forward in my life and work. Raj, Simone and Michelle were so knowledgeable and held the space for each of us with so much care and integrity. I gained so many insights and tools that I cannot wait to apply
to my life. So a super big thank you ladies and I look forward to more.

This inaugural MayFly mastermind retreat will remain in my memory as an unforgettable experience with like-minded and very inspiring people. A safe place for a group to reconcile individually, find inspiration in trustful conversations and conduct mastermind sessions guided by an excellent professional in this field.
