WORKSHOPS, SESSIONS, AND RELAXATION TREATMENTS
A combination of the following workshops and sessions are included in our Wellbeing Retreat Weekends. You also have the opportunity to purchase one-on-one relaxation treatments that are designed to compliment your experience, and will help you unwind even further.
INFORMATIVE HOLISTIC ENERGY CARE WORKSHOP- Holistic Energy Care Management
This workshop gives a fresh new look at the way we lead your lives; it helps to raise awareness to how you care for own energy, and how it can get depleted externally, and internally. It gives tools on how to be more mindful in all that you do, be more connected to what you really want and feel. With this deeper understanding, you can improve and enhance your work, personal life, be more creative, avoid burnout, bored-out, excessive tiredness, stress, anxiety and illness. During the workshop essential energy skills are taught to help increase and balance energy.
I found everyone was so friendly and I felt I could just be my self and sometimes just be by myself.
RLEAX AND RECHARGE - YOGA/SHIBASHI
You will learn a series of Yoga and Shibashi exercises (meditative movements derived from Tai Chi) which help you to relax, balance, recharge, and improve your general health and wellbeing.
FUN AND LIBERATING FREE-DANCE- Interpretive Movement/Dance
Free Dance Sessions are so-called because there is no instruction, they give you a wonderful opportunity to express yourself, creatively, mindfully & playfully in any way you choose to different modes of inspiring music. It brings together universal wisdom that underlies all movement practices. As nobody watches anyone else, feel rest assured that self-consciousness just melts away, leaving you to have freeing fun!
THERAPEUTIC MEDICINE MOVEMENT- Contemplative Movement/Dance
This is an opportunity to move your bodies from a place of stillness and inner connection. Intuitive movement allows our bodies to naturally unwind, release tensions and blocks in ways we may not have experienced or thought of doing before. Gentle and slow movements, done without being watched or judged. I will be facilitating, then participating!
SINGING BOWL BATH THERAPY- Audio Therapy

The power of touch is a fundamental part of our heritage and pays a vital role in our development from infancy into adulthood. Comforting and nurturing it is considered essential for the wellbeing of our mind & body, and is food for the soul!
