This is a chance to get away and recharge your mind, body and spirit in a wonderful holistic and healing way.  There will be some Soulsisters who will have just completed our 12 week Soulsisters FITcamp Wellness Programme, and this is the icing on the cake for them to reward themselves on their Wellbeing Journey.  However we have opened this retreat up to the public as we know how beneficial and life-changing our retreats are, and we want as many beautiful Soulsisters to experience this for yourself. 

This will be Box of Chocolates 6th retreat at this beautiful venue, and we keep coming back because it is such a stunning relaxing and calming sanctuary to escape to.  It is a treasure trove in all seasons and there will be the cosiness of the open fires and freshness of the air to energise you in lots of different ways!  It is designed to maximise the views around you, so that you will feel at one with nature.  The sounds of the native birds surround you, while the Otaki river is only minutes walk away and will have you feeling peaceful and recharged in no time!

All meals are wholesome, vegetarian, fresh and super delicious - catered lovingly for us onsite.

Depending on the weather we are aiming to do a couple of group walks in the local area, followed by some delicious pampering and wellness activities.

The workshops are designed to uplift, empower and revitalise your life to a new level of inspiration.

This is a FITcamp like no other, we want to nurture your body, mind and spirit so that you are firing on all cyclinders and most of all enjoying the process!

Our UNIQUE & HOLISTIC SOULFUL programme will start with an intro Retreat Day where you will get to meet your other Soulsisters, understand each others journeys, support your vision of health and together create goals with soul to have you thriving in a holistic way, with a focused workshop topic each time.

Yes you will be challenged, pushed outside of your comfort zone at times and want to say a few @#$% words along the way, but hey we are going to cherish your journey, guide you in a positive healing way so that you are reaching your true potential and feeling damn good about it!

You will want to come to each session because you will see how much fun it is in our group, and how quickly you are going to see changes in the way you think, feel, act and look.

We will provide you with a fitness programme that encompasses body strength, mindfulness techniques, visualisation, affirmations, creativity, adventure, nutritional guidelines along with weekly support through empowering coaching and wellness tools to fuel your body and mind in inspirational ways.

Our sessions are designed to have you soaking up the energy of being outdoors, you will feel in tune with your body and be inspired by the variety of locations in nature.

You will feel the fresh air on your face, see the beautiful sea or forest in front of you, smell the grass under your feet, hear the birds singing and taste the deliciousness of freedom and personal fulfillment at our sessions.  Please note, during the Winter months we train inside but do walks as a group on the Sundays when possible.

Each week there will be two personal soul sessions to have you reaching your fitness goals with optional extra challenges, meditations and weekly intentions, soulful exercises and reflection in lifestyle areas with both online and face to face support through our dedicated online tribe.

We will do walks together as a group with holistic and fun filled Retreat Days to recharge, rejuvenate and rejoice in how awesome we all are!

WHEN: Saturday 30 November 2019

WHERE: Lotus Yoga Centre - 91 Ruapehu Street, Paraparaumu

COST: $65 per person

LIMITED TO 20 PLACES

Due to the interest in these beautiful Silent Retreat Days, I'm now running them every 3 months to encourage you to celebrate more of your own inner bliss and tranquility.

You may have been curious about Silent Retreats or workshops for a while, well this is a wonderful taster to discover the huge benefits of taking some mindful time out for yourself.

In this busy world we live in, it can be hard to find time out for yourself to "just be" and switch off.  We are often reminded to practice mindfulness, but if you don't know where to start or what that encompasses, it can be confusing with all the choices out there.

It doesn't take long for stress to take hold of our minds and bodies and having some tools to cope, will help you to feel in control and focused on positive change.

Here is a beautiful chance to immerse yourself in a stunning natural sanctuary for a day dedicated to finding peace, serenity and clarity in your life.  The sanctuary overlooks a tranquil pond surrounded by lovely trees to make you feel like at ease, at peace and happy to be in nature. 

You will be guided in a fun, holistic way to bring out some zen magic and create space for you to relax and rejuvenate your mind, body and soul.

The feel of the day will be light, zen and will awaken your senses with beautiful Ikebana floral arrangements, relaxing essential oil fragrances, soulful relaxing background music and delicious healthy food and herbal teas to savour and share.

This Silent Retreat day will include:

 🌸Creative mindful activities and guidance
🌸Tapping into your senses for living in the moment
🌸Chakra balancing and Sound Healing
🌸 A variety of Meditation/visualisations
🌸 Healing Circles
🌸Gentle Stretching & Breathwork
🌸Relaxing with some Aromatherapy and pure essential oil pampering

Your $65 will include a welcome gift, all activities and resources along with a platter of healthy snacks with Herbal Teas/coffee.   Please bring your own lunch (vegetarian only). 

You will love having this time out for yourself and every activity is optional, you can just lie down and relax or walk out in nature if you wish.  

We will do an introduction at the start of the day and then it will be silent throughout the day until we connect again and review our day at the end.  I will be guiding you throughout the day, but we will do things in silence as a chance to embrace stillness and give you moments of clarity.
