Beautiful Butterfly

This is going to be the week where your life will begin to change, it is your time to morph. It is scary, being in that chrysalis with our bodies hot and sticky and changing and not knowing what is ahead. On the Fit, Fun & Fabulous Menopause Retreat we will help you see the light at the end of the tunnel and show you the beautiful butterfly that will emerge from the cocoon.

Isn’t it just the best place to be when you have one of those hot flashes ? Who hasn’t thought of sticking our heads in the freezer when one of those whopping hot flashes occurs! Joking aside, Iceland has been the home of the host of the Menopause Morph Podcast for the past 23 years. In the last few years Iceland has become one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. So now you have the opportunity to not just learn how to thrive through your menopause and beyond but also get a chance to see many of the amazing natural wonders of Iceland. Trips to the Secret Lagoon, the Golden Circle, Snæfellsnes peninsular, the highlights of Reykjavik and many more amazing sights of Iceland that Pauline can recommend to you.

So, Why Iceland?


We’ve spent most of our lives taking care of others, now as we reach the Change-of-Life its good to step back and ponder what we want to do with the second half of our lives. Take the time on the Fit, Fun & Fabulous Menopause Retreat to not just learn how to cope with the symptoms of menopause but really take the time to pause and examine what is working and not working in our lives. Time to recharge our batteries. Time to think about what is truly important in our lives at this stage. Then we can go back to our families and work place armed with techniques to combat those menopausal symptoms that had been upsetting us.  Use the meditation and yoga techniques to de-stress and get in physical and emotional shape. So what are you waiting for? Sign up below. Remember we can only take from 12 – 20 participants depending on if you want a single or double occupancy room. We expect the places to sell out fast.

Hotel Hafnarfjall is a small and cozy hotel and only has 15 rooms available. So the amount of people we can take is very limited and depends on wither you want a single occupancy room or a double occupancy room.
We will not take more than 20 participants as we want it to be an intimate experience where all participants get to know each other and have plenty of time to talk with the resident experts. Eight of the rooms have on suite bathrooms and the rest have shared bathrooms.
