The Body Retreat


Julie Abernethy is a women’s wellness coach and co-founder of The Body Retreat – run exclusively for women by women – which welcomes almost 200 people a year to its wellness and weight loss breaks.

After burnout ended Julie’s corporate career, she took a holiday to recover, and met her current business partner, Julie Brealy, who was already running successful weight loss bootcamps. Their chance conversation sowed the seed for The Body Retreat, which is now in its tenth year.

Julie is a qualified Master NLP practitioner, a Pure Stretch instructor, chef and marketer for her retreats. Her advice for entrepreneurs is to trust their gut instinct and remember that no-one else knows what they’re doing either!
