Introducing an industry first

The Skinside Out Squad Retreat


for Skin Therapists.


Somerleys Ocean

Casuarina Beach NSW

12-15 May 2023


Imagine a getaway that takes you out of the therapist space and into an all inclusive retreat combined with a “live in” immersion with Robyn McAlpine, Expert Skin Therapist.
The Skinside Out Squad Retreat is the ultimate education event for every skin therapist. 
Re-ignite your passion, build your confidence, and replenish your mind, body and spirit in a retreat perfectly designed to mix learning with relaxation, restoration and comfort.
In this immersive retreat, you will be mentored in education sessions to help you master your skin consultation skills and learn collectively with like minded skin therapists. Each session will give you insight, inspiration and ideas to take back and implement in the treatment room. 
But it's not all text books and tech talk. This retreat is your gift to your mind, body and spirit.

Beach side Location

Somerleys Ocean has been chosen as part of your Retreat experience. No more bland hotel conference rooms and boring small talk.
Between education sessions, soak up everything the property has to offer, from beach side accommodation to pristine sandy beaches. This retreat designed to appeal to all the senses.

World Class Education

 Forget powerpoint presentations and stuffy speakers.

Each education session is small group, live and interactive workshops that will translate to exactly how you work in the treatment room. This isn't unrelatable textbook stuff, instead Robyn shows you exactly how she does it and supports you in finding your own way!

Relax and Recharge

 This retreat is the perfect combination of learning whilst recharging. Each day has room for beach walks, massages, leisurely meals and even an afternoon nap. The Skinside Out Squad Retreat is designed to fill your emotional cup whilst filling your brain.
In our industry it is only natural that we give our minds, hearts and hands (and our backs, wrists and shoulders) to every client who comes into our space. It's now your turn to be refuelled, restored and replenished, to fill your cup overflowing, to take it back and pour out into others.
Immerse yourself in the beautiful beach side accommodation, all inclusive catering, pristine sandy beaches, sunset drinks, yoga, book a massage or perhaps an afternoon nap as you allow yourself to truly let go and let the Skinside Out Squad Retreat refill you. You’ll leave overflowing with knowledge and experiences that will empower you to feel more confident in your craft and with an experience you’ll carry with you for the life of your career. 
Throughout the retreat, Robyn will take you through the complete consultation process, helping you to build a seamless flow to investigate your clients skin. You’ll leave the retreat with the skills to immediately walk into your salon or clinic and consult with clarity and confidence. 
Shake the dust of your diagnostic equipment as Robyn teaches you to interpret clinical images and take the fear and uncertainty out of the device. This training will have you confidently navigating your diagnostic images and understanding what you are seeing in the images so you can confidently educate your clients.
To help you put all the pieces together, you’ll experience a live skin consultation as Robyn takes a real client through the consultation process you’ll get to observe, take notes and absorb all the little nuances that turn a good consultation into a GREAT consultation. 

Throughout the retreat you’ll have Robyn ‘in situ’ to chat and connect, with opportunities to ask the burning questions you’ve got about all things skin.


You’ll leave each session overflowing with ideas on how you can implement your skills into your daily practice and be inspired to make small changes to your consultations that will have a huge impact on your clients.

Book a photoshoot with Laura Jelbart.

Why I love photoshoots- Seeing yourself through the eyes of an artist is a surprisingly affirming experience. There’s something magical about stepping out of your comfort zone and into the abundance it brings to all areas of your life.


Whether you use the images in your business, to showcase your personal brand or as a keepsake of that time you came to the Skinside Out Retreat and had a transformational experience, you’ll see your inner beauty reflected in every image you receive.


I encourage you to take this opportunity to book with the incredibly talented Laura during your stay. She will instantly make you feel comfortable and natural and capture your unique beauty in such a beautiful environment. Truly a gift to yourself that will capture the essence of you. 
Your session is $300 for a 30 minute location shoot with a digital portfolio of beautiful images to print or share across your media platforms.

Book a Mass-aaaaaaaage!

What better way to unwind and really sink into an even deeper level of relaxation than to add a massage to your retreat. As you are the one that is always giving, I encourage you to take this opportunity to be nurtured at the hands of an expert. Between learning and immersing yourself in knowledge and self care, there’s no better way to enjoy this experience than with a massage in a beautiful setting. 
$180 for a 60 minute massage
