The PRIME Retreat is for women who are going through the natural change of life. The weekend is an opportunity to better understand the menopause – why it’s happening and how to manage the symptoms, enabling you to make informed decisions about things like HRT. You will also appreciate the critical role of food and fitness in easing symptoms.

The weekend schedule is a balance of gentle physical activity, informative talks and healthy eating, as well as time for you to re-charge your batteries through walks and soaks in the hot tub. It’s also a fantastic opportunity to meet other women going through similar experiences.

The PRIME Retreat is run by Tanya Young, a Naturopathic Nutritionist, Fitness and Pilates Instructor experienced in delivering menopause courses.  The weekend is being hosted in the beautiful Sandhill House, located in the spectacular coastal town of Dunfanaghy, Donegal and owned by physiotherapist Lucille Cassidy.
