About the event

This full day retreat will be focused on self care, mental wellbeing and relaxation. This full day workshop will take a holistic approach to self care and mental wellbeing and will focus on movement, meditation, nutrition and art as therapy and how these practices can be utilised as self care for your mental health. The Self Care Retreat will be broken up into three sections: Yoga & Mediation, Health & Nutrition, and Art as Therapy.

Yoga & Meditaion

Our day will begin with a slow guided yoga & meditation session focused on teaching how movement and meditation can be of benefit to ones mental health. During the yoga session we will be guided through moves and poses that will directly benefit our mental wellbeing.

Meet our yoga & meditation teacher Lauren

"My Yoga journey began about six years ago – around about the time I started exploring more holistic approaches to managing my health. My degree in International Development has allowed me to live and work across the Asia region – in places where Yoga and the lifestyle it entails is prevalent. Yoga has become more than just desperate stretching with beliefs it would instantaneously heal me – it has set the foundations for how I hope to live my life – in touch with my body and in control of my mind. I have studied Yoga in India and Indonesia and have recently completed my Teacher Training in Nepal, a nation very close to my heart. I hope that in becoming a Teacher I can make Yoga more accessible to people it has excluded and to become apart of other’s holistic healing." Lauren

Nutrition & gut health

After the yoga & meditation session we will be delving into nutrition and how what we eat can affect our body and mind. This session will include discussion and information around how our gut health and mental health are connected and how we can utilise what we are eating for our mental wellbeing. Not only will we be learning about food and nutrition, we will be putting what we learn into action! We will be cooking out own lunch and afternoon snacks reflecting what we have learnt.

Art as Therapy

In the final session of the retreat we will be exploring how creativity and the arts can be used as a mental health outlet. We will be engaging in different Art as Therapy practices and activities that will engage our senses, felt body and
