Imagine taking a whole day out for yourself!

Imagine reflecting, reconnecting and re-energising in a beautiful Yarra Valley setting.

Imagine immersing yourself in an Italian cooking class with like-minded people, then connecting over lunch and immersing yourself in a discovery workshop afternoon.

I imagined all of the above, so I’ve created a “PAUSE” especially for you.

I’m known for energy, and I’m super excited to spend the day sharing my key strategies and mindset of how to BE our best energetic selves.

If you would like us to invoice you, please click here to reach out to Steph.

We can also run this 1-day retreat exclusively for your team of up to 12 people; email Steph to find out more. 




As we reach the pointy end of 2023, NOW is the time to invest in YOU, reflect on the year that was, the learnings you will bring forward, and take the time to celebrate the year that was.

Get clear on who you are and why you do what you do, and discover how to re-energise your mind, body, and spirit.

Walk away with clarity and simple strategies and tools you can apply straight away in your life and work.

We've become “human doings” instead of “human beings”. When we get caught up on the treadmill of life, we often neglect to fill our cup. We can't be in service to others if we feel depleted.

Who is this for:

  • Anyone looking to reconnect and re-energise
  • Leaders, executives and business owners
  • Those wanting clarity, tools and beautiful space to reflect and reset
  • Those looking to make 2023 their best year yet

What's in it for you?

  • A space to reconnect and re-energise, back to you
  • Connection to amazing people (intimate group)
  • An Italian cooking class where you'll learn and have some fun
  • A scrumptious lunch and wine tasting
  • Thought provoking workshops with a plan of action


  • 2.5 hour Italian cooking class
