Body & Soul Restoration:
The Art of Self-Care
One Day Retreat
November 12, 2016
Before the rush of the Holiday Season, treat yourself to this nurturing One Day Retreat.
We'll dedicate our day to self-care and gratitude practices, honoring our feminine energies and refilling our souls so that we enter the Season of Giving with a full heart.
Take a day, by yourself or with a girlfriend, and re-discover what it feels like to move slowly and sweetly, savoring the stretch, quieting the mind, listening to birds singing in the trees overhead and re-connecting with that creative buzz.
No worries, no deadlines, nobody to care for but yourself. All of this in a gorgeous lakeside home. You deserve this. You crave this. Let's make it happen!
We'll begin the day with a 3 hour Body Restoration session, a combination of Yoga Tune Up® Therapy Ball soft tissue work and Restorative Exercise Alignment practice designed to relax and renew your body from head to toe. We'll open your eyes to some of your body blind spots and you'll be instructed in techniques that you can take home with you and practice on a regular basis to keep your body soft and supple, promote relaxation and encourage whole body movement for whole body health. You'll receive your own pair of Yoga Tune-Up® Therapy Balls to take with you.
Following our first Body Restoration session is lunch. Please let me know if you have any dietary restrictions or allergies.
After lunch, we'll take a Meditative Walk by beautiful Swan Lake. This will be a quiet walk with instruction in mindfulness, tuning into the biophany around us and focusing our minds to promote relaxation and calm.
Our art project for the day focuses on Gratitude. We will make a Gratitude Journal and a Gratitude Jar. I'll demonstrate some ideas to get you started, but you don't have to be an artist to complete this project! The power of giving thanks for our well-being is tremendous; it brings us out of ourselves, helps us be empathetic towards all living beings, enhances joy and self-worth and increases overall happiness and contentment.
Our second Body Restoration Session of the day will focus on releasing muscle tension via gentle movement, mindfulness, passive releases and a guided meditation where I will lead you through a progressive relaxation with focus on the breath. Not only will we be relaxing our muscles, but we'll be setting the stage for physiological quieting, i.e., taking our bodies from a state of fight or flight to rest and digest. You'll learn the role of your breath in calming your mind and body and be given written meditations to take with you.
