Friday - 4pm we begin with a class of Yoga Chi Gung, balancing the yin yang energies and flowing energy thru the meridians in our body, to bring more peace, connection and joy to the weekend. This is followed by dinner and a beautiful meditation to soothe your nervous system and deepen your connection to your inner being.
Saturday - we love to take a short walk to the beach and have the soles of our feet massaged by the sand or maybe an early morning sun meditation (depending on weather). After breakfast we move into a workshop TBA, and a guided Zen Thai Shiatsu massage class. This is loads of fun and easy to do (we remain fully clothed for this experience).
After lunch we will relax while we reflect and create our very own Mandala, with Jody.
During the afternoon we rejuvenate whilst experiencing a powerful Meditation for inspiring gratitude and connection and a nurturing Yoga Chi Gung class. After dinner Jaime-Lee will lead us in a unique movement and bodywork practice that will help you grow in somatic awareness and release tension from deep within the body.
Sunday - We energise our body with a class of Yoga Chi Gung, after breakfast by a Wisdom teaching and Detox Meditation to bring clarity and beauty to our experiences.
This will be followed by a session with our special guests.
NB: We will update our activities closer to the retreat date.
