What: Spring Detox Urban Retreat
When: Saturday 8 September 2018, 11:00am-3:30pm
With: Amy, Arianna + Lydia together with exciting collaborators (see below!)
With the arrival of Spring comes the opportunity to start afresh, let go of any old habits, stale energies and negative emotions that no longer serve you, to make space for establishing new practices + ways of being to help you live your happiest and most joy-filled life.
Our Urban Retreat, is an opportunity to detox, rejuvenate and rest – a mini retreat conveniently located in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD to ready you for the season which each year brings new beginnings.
This retreat is all about re-setting and creating space for manifesting what you’d like more of in your life.
Held in our cosy yoga sanctuary nestled away from the busy-ness of the city, our Urban Retreat is an opportunity to kick-start your self-care practices and set the tone for the new season and beyond. It is also perfect timing with the New Moon on September 10…
We’ve planned a fully immersive experience for you to relax into and enjoy. Expect a day filled with detoxifying yoga practices, mini massages, essential oils, sound healing, plant-based diet eating tips, a cleansing ritual and yummy eats, raw treats + tea to boot.
All you need to do is show up (in your comfiest get-up) and let us take care of the rest.
11:00am-12.15pm: Welcome followed by Yoga for Detox Masterclass with Amy
Amy will start this special day off with a 75 minute Yoga for Detox Masterclass exploring both ancient and more modern ways and methods that Yoga can help us to ‘detoxify’, purify, let go of that which is no longer serving us, and make space for all that we wish to cultivate and nurture into our lives from this point onwards. We’ll work through energising physical asana practices, as well as purifying pranayama (breath control practices), chanting and guided meditation. These practices will work through every layer of our beings, the more obvious physical body as well as energetic systems, emotional + mental space and will end in a sweet, blissful Savasana to set the tone for the rest of the day, and integrate your intentions for the future.
12.15pm: Lunch + mini massage treatments (45mins)
After our invigorating start, join us for a nutritious and delicious lunch menu exclusively created for our Urban Retreat. All plant-based and nutrition-dense, not to mention packed with flavour and fun, you’ll be asking for the recipes for sure. (Please make sure to let us know of any allergies or dietary requirements as soon as possible upon booking your spot).
1:00pm-1:55pm: Plant-based Nutrition Workshop (55mins)
Joining us for this special occasion next is accredited practising dietician Emily Pereira from Melbourne Nutrition Services. Emily will talk and share her expertise on how to follow a plant-based diet responsibly, and will include practical tips and recipes to take home.
1:55pm-2:45: Essential Oils + Sound Healing (50mins)
Embark on a journey through the sounds and smells of a Sound Healing coupled with doTERRA essential oils. Our very own Essential Oil Yogi, Arianna from the Essential Collaboration, will play her Chakra Quartz Crystal Bowls for you, and as you bathe in their healing sounds, your body, mind and spirit will soak up their healing vibrations. Matched Essential Oils will also bring you a sense of peace and energetic harmony, helping you to cleanse and detox at a cellular level. A truly unique experience and perfect to wrap up winter and move into spring.
2:45pm-3:15pm: Crystal + Sage Cleansing Ritual, Raw Treats + Tea
This is the perfect way to set your intentions and invite the energies you desire into your life, Sara from Cantata Elixir will lead the group in a cleansing ritual to remove any blockages + stagnant energies. Sara will offer energetic tools including sage, paper, crystals and incense to help you to invite and harness new and positive experiences. This ritual is in preparation for the September New Moon + new beginning energies on September 10.
