About The Teacher

Having overcome her own battles with health and happiness, Joelene knows what effect a few pragmatic changes can have on someone's life. Joelene’s passions are cooking, Yoga and personal development in all forms. For fun, you will find Joelene conjuring up delicious food for herself and others at her Pukehina Beach home. “I cook food that is healthy and will inspire your taste buds and make you excited to get into the kitchen yourself” says Joelene. “I live by the 80/20 rule and eat clean most of the time, but I’m by no means perfect and I think that’s something our ladies can relate to”.

Joelene is a Chartered Accountant, and has worked in several senior finance positions with large New Zealand companies, so can relate to the stress which many retreat guests are put under. "Many of the women who need our help know they should be taking better care of themselves, but finding time to fit that in too amongst everything else they have to get done ... it just keeps getting pushed down the list" says Joelene. "That's where coming on a Resolution Retreat can really help. We provide all the tools and coaching to ensure our guests have it all sorted by the time they head home". Joelene trained as a Group Fitness Instructor with Les Mills in 2010 and later studied health sciences and human nutrition through the Naturopathic College of New Zealand to supplement the knowledge she gained during her own 20kg weight loss journey. “I love meeting with our ladies and hearing their stories. Everyone’s journey is so different and I take a lot of pride in the fact that we make a big difference to their lives”.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
