Anassa was born out of a dream to create a sanctuary from our busy lives, to transform, heal and feel inspired. We help you unlock the physical, mental & emotional blockages that prevent you from reaching full vitality and optimal health, guiding you back to a state of flow.

Qualified Integrative Medical practitioner and psychiatrist, Dr. Siobhan Dawson with Emergency room and Functional Medical Doctor, Leah Murray host immersive retreats and workshops in idyllic locations in and around Cape Town.

We combine insights from Neuroscience and Functional medicine with evidenced-based healing practices. Cocooned in nature and nourished with delicious food and restorative exercises, we support your capacity to reclaim your happiest, healthiest self.

In our demanding, over connected, lives we can lose perspective and our sense of inner happiness and meaning.

Anassa inspires you to tap into your innate resources, empowering you to master your life.


Our previous 3-day long retreats were hosted at the Idyllic Angala Hotel nestled in the Franschhoek Winelands

Our 1-day workshops are hosted in collaboration with Jardim Farm in Noordehoek
