Retreat Style Workshops
With spacious high ceilings, views of the trees and the soothing sounds of the nearby "Picnic Creek", you will feel like you have stepped into a retreat when you arrive for the workshop. You will be greeted with a warm smile and instantly be reassured that you can relax here.
The calm vibes continue throughout the workshop.
The dress code is comfy clothes and no shoes and there is an option to sit on chairs or on the floor in meditation seats with yoga bolsters.
You will get to experience the techniques yourself and feel first hand the effects of yoga breathing; therapeutic movements; calming music and a soothing voice.
There will be opportunities to ask questions; practice the techniques and receive feedback to help you feel totally confident in sharing the tools with kids as soon as you leave the workshop.

The catered lunch is always talking point.
