Meditation, Movement and Bodywork Retreat Day

4 February @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm AEST


about the event

Find rest, connection and nourishment at this unique and down to earth retreat day where you will explore guided meditations, gentle yoga as well as Zenthai Shiatsu bodywork. You will both give and receive nourishing bodywork whilst following a guided sequence of simple yet powerful bodywork techniques in a safe and supported space. You will have time to relax and explore the beauty of these techniques. No prior experience is necessary.

Zenthai Shiatsu combines Thai massage, Zen shiatsu and osteopathic techniques to release tension and restore wellbeing.

Many of us live busy, complicated and stressful lives and so this day is aimed at bringing some balance back to our body and mind. When we are grounded and nourished we have a solid and sustainable platform with which to share our gifts with the people and world around us. 

No experience necessary. All levels of experience, fitness and flexibility are welcome.

Sessions are all offered in our lovely Wellbeing Centre surrounded by greenery and wildlife.

If you would like to take lunch in the centre’s Big Love Cafe please book at least 24 hours in advance here:
