Our half day mini retreat is aimed at providing a rich & nourishing experience designed to rejuvenate your mind, body and soul. A Leisurely Bush Walk, Chi Ball / Yoga, African Drumming, Mala Beads & Meditation form the basis of this retreat ... along with a yummy afternoon tea!
The afternoon begins with intro's and a leisurely bush walk within Star Swamp Reserve. On our return, we head outside under the shade where we begin to move into different Yoga poses using a Chi Ball ... great fun and really invigorating!! Afterwards we practice a silent walking meditation before taking a break to enjoy AW Chef Brad's yummy afternoon tea!
Our next retreat activity works on guiding energy into creative space! The therapeutic and health benefits relating to drumming and listening to, or playing music are well known and we're extremely excited to be able to incorporate this into our retreat. We're going to be learning the basic technique of playing Djembe, along with some traditional rhythms from West Africa. This activity is sure to get your blood pumping!!
Time to slow things down a little after our drumming, as we move indoors and learn to make our own Mala beads which we get to take home with us... a beautiful relaxing experience. When we've made our Mala beads, Bettina will teach us how to practice meditation using the beads in a seated meditation, then we'll finish out the retreat with some gentle yoga poses to stretch, then a lying down meditation to soothe the mind, body & soul ... perfect finish to the day.
