One bedroom apartments

One bedroom apartments average in size approximately 500 square feet, and consist of a large bedroom, with single or king size beds and double futons or sofa beds to accommodate up to four guests, a dressing room, a bathroom and a fully loaded kitchen. Six of these apartments feature a verandah kitchen, an open concept kitchen overlooking the gardens and enclosed only by wrought iron and brickwork. Alternately, one of these houses is outfitted with a patio, ideal for outdoor dining and relaxation.

Two bedroom apartment

The two bedroom apartment averages in size approximately 600 square feet, and consists of a closed bedroom with queen size bed, and privacy door, separated from a second, larger, open concept bedroom with queen size bed. All rooms have ceiling fans and air-conditioning, and include a fully-loaded kitchen, washroom with shower, and private patio ideal for dining and leisure.

Goddess Acumen empowers women to feel like the goddesses they are. Working with techniques such as meditation, EFT (“tapping”) and NLP, this powerful healing and transformational work focuses on Greek Goddesses as metaphors for the different aspects of the feminine energy, from exploring career driven Athena to nurturing, earth mother Demeter.

The techniques help to release negative thoughts, feelings, and beliefs; and let in all the good stuff that it is strived for.

Each day will focus on a different goddess. This goddess energy will be unleashed through daily workshops, activities, and yoga classes (not to mention a day off half way through to allow you to relax and explore at your leisure!) From surfing to cooking up a storm Caribbean style, to having a relaxing massage and pampering session, you will be exploring Barbados in a way that you never imagined.

The impact of this retreat does not end when you leave the island. You will be supported to bring your revived self and new strength, perspective, and tools into your daily life, and maintain a lasting sense of well being.

Daily activities

  • A workshop focusing on one of the size goddesses

Nestled at scenic Mullins Bay, St. Peter, a few short hundred feet away from Barbados' most beguiling shoreline, lies the Barbados yoga retreat location, a small, quaint property of nine apartments, bent towards making its guests experience real Bajan living. It is a ‘no-fuss’ property offering personalized service, where guests quickly become friends who keep coming back to visit.

Mullins is a great spot for water activities including jet skiing, water skiing, banana boat rides, tube rides, speedboat tours, and catamaran excursions. Mullins is also a great place for snorkeling and scuba diving, windsurfing and parasailing, or join in a friendly game of beach cricket or volleyball.

Just around the corner, south of Mullins is an idyllic spot for picnics, and a short walk to Gibbs Bay, a secluded West Coast cove, where you can enjoy a long stroll along the beach, collect shells, or simply lay back and gaze at a breathtaking sunset.

The retreat location is within walking distance of banks, restaurants, and supermarkets. A 24-hour convenience store is at a 300-meter walk away. Stock up on odds and ends there, including Barbados’ world renowned Banks Beer. Also a walk away is a selection of dining spots including a delectable Chinese restaurant, and a variety of local home-style cooking venues, serving finger-licking chicken, fish, ribs, and seafood.

Speightstown is a 15 minute walk to the north and Holetown is a 10 minute drive to the south. These are two major shopping areas in either direction, strewn with supermarkets, restaurants, banks, duty-free, and local shopping.

    "EFT works! Helen also introduced me to her goddesses and helped me identify my ‘weakest links’. Ultimately, I’d like more balance in my life and the Goddess Acumen approach seems both effective and fun."

    "Working with Helen has given me an invaluable insight and support at times when I struggle to see a clear path to the future I want for myself. She never pushes me to progress faster than I am ready to, and allows me the freedom to determine what direction to move in. I also appreciate her focus on how I experience this progress and not just a final result. I would encourage everyone to give themselves this support, an informed and objective viewpoint and tools to approach all that life has to throw at us."

    "I came to see Helen during a particularly trying time. Due to a relationship break-up, I was suffering severe anxiety and was having trouble focusing on anything else, or maintaining any perspective. I had sessions with Helen using EFT and I noticed the difference almost immediately. I just felt calmer and more in control of my thoughts, whereas before I had felt very panicky and anxious. Helen has a very calming manner, really listens, and has a very rational perspective on things. As well as the work she did, just talking to her really helped."

    "Working with Helen has been a delight! Originally came to her to learn the practice of EFT, but learned so much more, not only about myself but about the fascinating world of goddesses. I instantly felt the positive results of EFT and was able to continue working on myself, with the help of Helen´s clear instructions, at home or when required. Helen also introduced me to my inner goddesses and with a few simple questions and some liberating exercises, I was able to find balance and acceptance within myself. I'd highly recommend Helen and all the amazing talented skills she has to offer."
