One Day Retreat - Unplug and Unwind with Gwen


Meditation.jpg

Take some time off this morning for some self care and rejuvenation. This one day retreat is an opportunity to step out of your busy-ness and focus on You. You get to move your body to some Hatha flow then rebalance the lymphatic and nervous system with some Restorative Yoga, Yoga Nidra (yogic relaxation) and the Himalayan Singing Bowl Meditation.

Participants have the option book for a massage (by appointment only) after the retreat or stay overnight at the chalet. 

This Is For You

If you are feeling like you need to take some time out to reconnect with yourself, feeling stressed, anxious or overwhelmed, tired and having difficulty to sleep, suffering from negative thoughts and emotions, or whether you have had spiritual training or just starting to plant seeds for a more conscious life, I hope this retreat will give you more meaning to your existence, and heal areas that creates obstacles and limitations that prevents you from realising your potential.

Central Theme of the Retreat

In reverence to our location, Self care and Rejuvenation is the theme of the retreat - An opportunity to practice all the heart opening, healing, rebalancing and rejuvenation yoga overlooking the misty, beautiful valley and sunrise in the morning.

All Levels of Yoga Experience Welcome

Both beginners and more advance yogis are very welcome. This 1 day retreat has been designed to accommodate different levels of experience for yoga, and the poses will be adapted for that. You will enjoy the experience and will be part of a group of participants who will be attending for many different reasons. This is a wonderful chance for self care and rejuvenate. 

Serene Location

Nannup Hideway is 45mins from Busselton, 60mins from Pemberton and 90mins from Margaret River. It is a treat on its own driving up the hill through the massive pine tree growth. It is indeed a hideaway! situated on the top of the hill away from the hustle and bustle of life. I am truly thankful to be able to hold Re-connecting Body Mind and Spirit Weekend Retreat here recently. Being at the top of the hill was somewhat aligned with the teachings of Space that was covered in one of the key points on Why Spirit Matters. The whole atmosphere brought out a euphoric sense of freedom. Last but not least, the yoga space is spacious and beautiful overlooking the hills and forests along two sides of the room. 

The Food (depending on location)

The food menu is based on the concept of ancient eastern concept of Yin and Yang, means managing our imbalances, eating primarily whole grains, vegetables, beans, and sea vegetables. Using sea salt, miso, soy sauce, gomashio or natural condiments. The goal is to provide the body with essential nutrients without loading it with excesses that must be eliminated or stored, and restore the body’s own healing power.

Passionate and Heartfelt Host

Leisa Harding is the owner of Nannup Hideaway. It has been such an amazing experience working with Leisa. I especially love the trust that she had, which showed with her big, open heart. Her assistance with the space setting, and with the food, that was Japanese concept which was so new to her, she did it brilliantly. Leisa is very cooperative and tries her best in what ever she does. 

Why I’m Doing This

It was never about ‘teaching’ because I know what is best, or for the sake of regurgitating information. It has always been how relevant I can be for every individual’s path and physical challenges. Unlike a weekly yoga class, this weekend retreat has given me the opportunity to provide a whole picture of a fulfilling and harmonious life to participants. The key points I share during class are from my years of teaching yoga, and experiences from traditional practices while living in Japan, travels to India and Nepal.
