How would you feel if you had a day of introspection, relaxation, nature-based wisdom and self-care booked in for the start of the Summer? Book now and in 6 weeks be greeted with yoga, sound healing, nurturing social connection, deep rest and nature time. Carve out the time now. Make self-care a priority and get it in your diary.

 

You are invited to this day dedicated to deep rest, processing grief and cultivating gentleness within yourself. Our intention is to offer a space for those seeking to reconnect with their essence and find harmony amidst life's whirlwind and ever-changing landscapes.

 

Grief has no guidebook—no straight line to follow. It doesn’t always have to be connected to bereavement either. It's the soul's way of mourning a person, place, or time in the past, coming in unpredictable waves. One moment you're feeling low, the next you're laughing, then numb. In the midst of this process, it's essential to give yourself permission to feel and heal.

 

Through gentle sequences, restorative yoga, self-massage and sound healing, you’ll have the opportunity to land back into your body, experience deep rest and emotional healing.  Both Tash and Anna understand the complexities of grief and loss, creating a compassionate space where you can honour your journey and open yourself to new possibilities.


 

 

What’s involved?

 

Nature Time: A space for you to be by yourself any time you need to during the day in the natural beauty surrounding our retreat space. Take some mindful breaths in the beautiful garden whilst making yourself a cup of tea.

 

Healing Yoga Sequences: We will start by delving into a series of nurturing yoga sequences designed to awaken your body's innate wisdom and promote presence. You will be encouraged to move in a way that suits your body’s needs on that particular day – making each movement invitational and optional. We will then move into the transformative power of the breath as we engage in mindful pranayama’s (breathing practices) to calm the mind and cultivate a greater sense of awareness.  

 

Self-massage with Organic Jojoba & Ylang Ylang Oil: Tash will then guide you into an Abhyanga (ayurvedic self-massage). A luxurious self-care ritual as you pamper your body with organic jojoba and ylang-ylang oil, leaving your skin soft and your body more relaxed.

 

Calming Live Piano with Restorative Yoga: Surrender to the soothing melodies of live piano music as you sink into a state of deep relaxation during restorative yoga practice. Allow the gentle, contemplative sounds of the piano to be your companion and your guide through your restorative yoga journey, holding you in harmony as you begin to connect with a sense of peace. 

 

Healing Crystal Bowl Sound Bath with Yoga Nidra: Experience the healing vibrations of Crystal Tones crystal alchemy singing bowls during a transformative Yoga Nidra session. Allow yourself to be carried away on waves of sound, as these sacred instruments work their magic to restore balance and harmony to your body, mind and spirit. Let go of tension, worries, and distractions as you surrender to the present moment and embrace the bliss of simply being.

 

Ayurvedic Inspired Home-cooked Lunch: Nourish your body with a delicious and wholesome Ayurvedic-inspired lunch, lovingly prepared with locally sourced, organic ingredients.

 

Optional Journaling: Reflect on your journey and insights gained throughout the day through optional journaling sessions. Capture your thoughts, emotions, and intentions as you deepen your understanding of yourself and your path forward.

 

Join us for a day of soulful exploration and rejuvenation as we embark on a journey to nurture the soul and hold a gentle space for yourself. When we begin the retreat we will give you space to feel into what your intentions are for this journey.

Note: Neither of your facilitators are trained counselors or therapists but we will offer a held space where your whole self is welcome. We encourage you to come with an open mind and heart.
