Women's Change of Life - Menopause Retreat

Next retreat: 3rd - 5th November 2021

Menopause can be daunting for some women, and an absolute breeze for others. Finding ways to adapt to this natural biological process will help the change of life happen with more ease and balance. What you will take away from this retreat is the power to be more proactive about change of life, with key tips on what is happening within your own system. Having an understanding of what works, and what doesn’t work for you is so important. When you have this knowledge, you can further investigate options that work for you.


Your retreat will be hosted by our Wellness Director, Michelle Moloney, and Jo Hand, our Practitioner of Nutritional Medicine & Kinesiologist at Lux Spa & Wellness. Included in this nurturing retreat is accommodation in one of our beautifully appointed rooms at Great Ocean Road Resort, meet and greet lunch, nightly dinners in our modern fine dining restaurant, The Coast, breakfast daily, information sessions with Jo, yoga & meditation, guided nature walk, leisure time, cooking demonstration with our Head Chef, relaxation and mindfulness sessions at our luxurious day spa, Lux Spa and Wellness.

Michelle is our wellness director with over 20 years of experience in the spa and wellness industry. An experienced educator, facilitator and spa therapist, she is devoted to helping individuals realise the benefits of wellness in their lives. 

Michelle is an experienced practitioner in massage, lymphatic drainage, health science, relaxation techniques and wellness.
