New in 2020!
June 1 Day METreat
June 2020 1 day METreat at Merricks
Tuesday 23 June 2020 10am - 4pm
Can't get away for a whole weekend? Why don't you join us at a METreat 1 Day Retreat?
Due to popular demand, we'll be offering METreat 1 Day Retreats in 2020. Discover how great you will feel after only one day on retreat with us!
We will be offering wellness activities including yoga, meditation, self-care/stress management education and a lovely nature walk, delicious food and lots of opportunities to connect, have fun and laugh with the other ladies who join us for the day.
After spending the day with us, you will return home a happier and less stressed version of yourself so that you can be a better mother, partner, friend, work colleague and all-round amazing human being.
The retreat will be based at 3488 @ Merricks - a stunning and stylish 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom property in Merricks, which is in the heart of the Mornington Peninsula, only a 1 hour drive from Melbourne.
This is where we will gather for our retreat welcome/close, our personal development session and for sharing delicious food together. The house is 5 minutes drive away from Silver Leaf Yoga, a lovely yoga studio where Tanya Levy will lead our yoga and meditation session. The house is also close to a beautiful bushwalk and also the charming Merricks General Store, where we will grab a coffee on the way back from our walk!!
This is the perfect location for a relaxing and fun day day away focusing on wellness, friendship and fun!
The retreat program covers all wellness activities and catering from 10am - 4pm on Tuesday 23 June 2020

Vikki Friedman is the Founder of METreat and a busy mother of three boys aged 10, 12 and 15.
She started the business following a long and difficult history with anxiety and depression,
which resulted in her being hospitalised for five weeks when her three boys were very young.
Once Vikki recovered, she made a promise to herself to attend a retreat every year as part of regular self-care and prevention of relapse. Vikki had learned the importance of 'ME'time and self-care and realised that when she is happy her family and relationships benefit too.
Vikki had an amazing time at various retreats over the next five years and in addition to the wellness activities she participated in, found her favourite aspect of each retreat was the opportunity to connect with other women, form new friendships, share new experiences and, most importantly, have fun and laugh!!
In 2017 she made the decision to leave her job in online-fundraising to start METreat Women's Retreats. She wanted to bring her love of retreats and her understanding of the huge benefits they provide to all women, and in particular, mums who often struggle to find the time to look after themselves.
Vikki is responsible for planning, organising and marketing METreat Retreats. Vikki loves connecting with, supporting and helping women to thrive in all areas of their lives.
Tanya Levy joined METreat as a partner at the beginning of 2019. Tanya is the founder and

Tanya has used the last 27 years searching for the meaning of life and the purpose of hers. She is an

industry for well over 27 years.
Tanya helps women shine a light on the shadow aspects of themselves through movement, diet, creative visualisation, stress management and, addressing fears and limitations and replacing them
