SAME FORMAT - NEW ACTIVITIES & INSPIRATION FOR 2021!

WHEN: Sun 7 Feb 2021

WHERE: Lotus Yoga Centre - 91 Ruapehu Street, Paraparaumu

COST: $75 per person

LIMITED TO 20 PLACES

You may have been curious about Silent Retreats or workshops for a while, well this is a wonderful taster to discover the huge benefits of taking some mindful time out for yourself.

In this busy world we live in, it can be hard to find time out for yourself to "just be" and switch off.  We are often reminded to practice mindfulness, but if you don't know where to start or what that encompasses, it can be confusing with all the choices out there.

It doesn't take long for stress to take hold of our minds and bodies and having some tools to cope, will help you to feel in control and focused on positive change.

Here is a beautiful chance to immerse yourself in a stunning natural sanctuary for a day dedicated to finding peace, serenity and clarity in your life.  The sanctuary is surrounded by lovely trees to make you feel life at ease, at peace and happy to be away from it all.

You will be guided in a fun, holistic way to bring out some zen magic and create space for you to relax and rejuvenate your mind, body and soul.

The feel of the day will be light, zen and will awaken your senses with beautiful Ikebana floral arrangements, relaxing essential oil fragrances, and delicious healthy food/herbal teas to savour and share.

This Silent Retreat day will include:

 🌸Welcome Gift
🌸Creative mindful activities and guidance
🌸Tapping into your senses for living in the moment
🌸Chakra balancing and Colour Therapy
🌸 A variety of Meditation/visualisations
🌸 Healing Circles
🌸Time to Journal and "just be"
🌸Gentle Stretching & Breathwork
🌸Relaxing with some Aromatherapy and pure essential oil pampering

Your $75 will include a welcome gift, all activities and resources along with a platter of healthy snacks with Herbal Teas/coffee.   Please bring your own lunch (vegetarian only). 

You will love having this time out for yourself and every activity is optional, you can just lie down and relax or walk out in nature if you wish.  

We will do an introduction at the start of the day and then it will be silent throughout the day until we connect again and review our day at the end.  I will be guiding you throughout the day, but we will do things in silence as a chance to embrace stillness and give you moments of clarity.
