Enjoy a day devoted to YOU!
Also on Dec 1st 2019
This is a one day retreat offered to help you open the tightness in your body, release all tension, find depth and compassion for yourself, to rest deeply and to connect with yourself and perhaps others in ways you may never have previously imagined. Its about stepping out of your life and into a new way of experiencing yourself, a space to fully recharge and re-orient your direction.
After we have met and welcomed each other the day begins with a gentle yoga session that is suitable for all levels of practice – including complete beginners. It’s designed to warm and open your heart and body without challenging your system too much – the day is all about deep rest afterall! This yoga practice will incorporate meditation and pranayama (breath work) as well as gentle yoga informed movement.
Then its time for a fully catered lunch – you don’t need to think of a thing! The lovely Cherie of Sprout & Bean Cafe in Geelong will serve us up some organic vegetarian super delicious food that she’s created on site. of course, if you have special dietary requirements let us know well in advance of the retreat date.
After lunch we will digest life (and lunch) during a fully guided stillness meditation – get ready to go deep! All of this is prepaing you for the final session where we align body, mind, soul and spirit in a 90 min Restorative yoga class and Live “Sound Bath” with Sound Therapist Jenn (Tiz) Robinson of Sounds of Freedom in Geelong.
The Yoga and Meditation sessions are guided by Jo Solomon (www.josolomon.com). Jo is a Soul Based Psychotherapist trained in Mindfulness & Mediation, Hatha Yoga. She runs regular classes, workshops and retreats as well as private sessions helping people find happiness.
A wonderful opportunity to centre oneself. A grounding experience that has nourished my soul. The sounds, words, atmosphere and teachings have given me the chance to reset.Jess
Today I have experienced a letting go of those things that have caused me anxiety, and an awareness of my fear. Things that have been part of me for decades. Through the different poses, relaxation exercises and other sensations. Jo’s positive words have been a remarkable experience.Stuart
That was the most powerful experience I have ever had. Music & sound whilst meditating allowed me to go to places I have only briefly touched in the past.Kaye
I loved the retreat, especially the restore session where we were treated to the haunting sounds of the bowls and Tiz’s voice. It was an experience that will stay with me beyond the day. Jo Has a gift in her amazing ability to engage and enlighten us.A.B
The meditation with Tiz was absolutely amazing. I am walking out today feeling blissed out. Jojo is a fantastic meditation teacher. She goes deep down into our core and we gain so much insight from what we learn.
So amazing! I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect… I will float home. Thankyou so much. I feel like the day was so useful for the journey of health and wellbeing.Janelle
