Our retreats are an intensive exploration, guiding you to discover more about who you are, how you work, and where you'd like to go. Why? Because knowledge is power, building new perspectives and habits allows us all to bridge the gap between where we are and where we want to be. This is all about tapping into our infinite potential to feel and perform our best - within and beyond the retreat itself.
We come to Oona to prepare, reflect, motivate and progress. To learn, to heal and to find inspiration with other Oonas.
We provide tools to empower our social, physical and mental well-being through curated retreat experiences, movement practices, masterclasses, workshops, adventures and roundtable discussions.
Where determinations are found, confidence will soar. Self-practice will deepen. Minds will open, and positivity will be abundant.
We are Oona.

When a woman’s healthy and thriving, she radiates positive energy and nourishes those around her, from partners to children, friends, colleagues, family, our elders, and the wider society. Our needs and biology change throughout our life from when our periods start to our childbearing years, postpartum, and the menopause transition.
Join the Oona Series and Six Senses Crans-Montana to retreat this September as we embark on a journey of learning, curiosity, and connection. Go home better equipped to thrive yourself and pass the keys to understanding on to all your precious sisters out there.

Boniface is an expert in integrated osteopathy and acupuncture, transforming health through movement, visualisation and acupuncture.
Using various techniques such as structural osteopathy, craniosacral therapy, acupuncture, and cross-referrals with the best practitioners in their fields, Boniface can create sustainable support for his patients. With 19 years of experience, he considers each patient's physical, mental and social realm. He inscribes these findings in an anthropological framework to better understand and support their health, providing a suggested array of holistic solutions.
Boniface started his holistic clinic in 2013 in Marylebone, London. There he focuses on working collaboratively with doctors and other complementary therapists to promote healing and physical wellness for patients.
"By moving something, I can catalyse a shift that was somehow stuck, and as this movement enhances again... the body finds its way to regenerate the movement.'
