New Year Stress-Detox Retreat Start 2022 calm & on track
Sunday January 9 10am - 4pm
"A true investment in self. Lisa holds such a sacred space, which fully supports reflection, relaxation and letting go. My only wish would be to be able to attend a silent retreat more often!" A.W - ORMISTON
Offering a variety of nourishing experiences to bring positive new space, clarity, and calm, this is a day of many workshops rolled into one!
All of us love and need to retreat from the world occasionally. This auspicious time, when we close one year and open ourselves to the next, is the perfect opportunity to spend a day in harmony with yourself and allow your body and being to regenerate. Drop your past year, letting it go with ease. Switch off from your phone, the television, your computer, the radio, and chatter. We live in a world today where we receive more information in one day that people born 100 years ago got in a life time! How do we balance that?
This day of quiet healing is a rest for all of the senses. A period of deep silence is observed for the duration of the retreat. The energy of silence and mindfulness penetrates our flesh and bones, and calmness prevails. In Noble Silence we cultivate higher levels of hearing, perception, and vision.
Take home valuable techniques that will enable you to manage any stresses that may arise in 2022. A wonderful plethora of nurturing sessions complimented with aroma therapy to balance the body and mind, and heighten the experience of relaxation.
For the deepest benefit from your one day silent stress-detox experience, please observe the following:
ATTIRE - Please wear loose fitting comfortable clothing with socks and removable warm over-garments.
NOBLE SILENCE - To ensure the deepest release of 'stress toxicity' complete silence is observed during the Retreat. No phones.
PLEASE BRING - A bottle of water and your own lunch. A small blanket. A cushion/pillow. Herb tea will be offered. (Please note refrigeration is not available).
ATTENDANCE - Please prepare yourself by dedicating the entire day to your healing. Please make arrangements that will enable you to be available and attentive to the practice without outside disruption. (Racing off to get your grocery shopping done in the lunch break, or making phone calls throughout the retreat period will interfere with the sensitive energy cultivated during the day).
Experience a silent retreat for the senses, with layers of nourishing guided journeys into the heart of your existance. A day suitable for everyone and recommended for all. No experience is necessary. Just bring along your open surrender for peace. (The only physical requirement is that you are able to get down onto the floor to soak up lots of self care, and to be able to get back up again!).
If you're presently going through a tough time in life, or you just need some time to 're-set' or cleanse your entire being with a 'stress-detox', this one day will make a profound impact. and set you up for a bright new year.

"I loved the New Year Retreat. I was a little anxious about the day, not knowing what to expect and not knowing how I would feel having to sit with my own thoughts... even the suggestion of not wearing a watch to check in on time seemed scary. But I embraced it and sat out of my comfort zone and I am so very glad I did! I love Lisa's gentle and non judgemental way and I absolutely loved the sound vibration session and the use of essential oils throughout the class. What an amazing way to start the New Year. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you! P.S. I didn't even look at my watch or phone once during the day. Nor did I want to. The day felt like a soft, warm coccon". MONICA - THORNLANDS
"This retreat was awesome. It was an amazing day with some of my favorite practices - restorative positions, mindfulness, breathing techniques - and then, also saying farewell to the past year, 2020. As usual, Lisa put together a fantastic, self-reflective and restorative day. I really love the fact that we don't speak all day. Thank you for your awesome yoga knowledge and retreats!" HELEN - Thornlands

"What an awesome treat to give myself before this rollercoaster of a year ends. To really receive the gift of stillness and 'letting go' at this time of year is better and more nourishing than even a week at the beach (and I love the beach!). Lisa is the perfect guide to lead us through amazing sessions of meditation and restoration that are totally about rejuvenation. Just what I needed and I never want to miss one of these retreats! Thanks Lisa" H.M - THORNLANDS

"Meditation benefits me greatly. With regular practice I learn greater acceptance of my thoughts and feelings, learn to develop patience and not react in negative ways, and better accept all environments I am in rather than viewing situations and life as hostile.

"I wasn't sure what to expect from this retreat. I thought my mind would be all over the place, but it wasn't! I would almost say I feel proud of myself, but I think it was the practices, the words you used, and the sound of your voice. Time went by quicker than I thought! I learnt so much from today and I would really like to make meditation a much bigger part of my life. I learnt that I don't take minutes or even seconds in my life to turn inwards. I learnt how insecure I was with the energy clearing and would really love to learn more about that. This day was amazilng - I loved every bit of it ❤❤" NICKI - CLEVELAD
