Wellness Within: Mindful Movement and Meditation Retreat Weekend

Focus on Mindful Practices

This weekend getaway is an opportunity to create a space of wellness from the inside out by incorporating mindfulness practices of movement and stillness. Enjoy this time just for you as you experience practices creating a balance of Yang & Yin energies in body, mind & spirit.

Depending on your own unique needs, you may choose to participate in all, or perhaps, only some of the activities on the agenda. Rest assured that no matter what your current level of activity or ability, all of the practices are inclusive, and all participants are supported to ensure that everyone feels successful.

This is YOUR time

Throughout this retreat, you are invited to explore various forms of mindfulness meditations including sitting, walking and eating, as well as mindful movement through yoga and gentle exercise.

No experience with yoga or meditation is necessary! No particular fitness level is required. You are encouraged to respect your own unique needs during the retreat and to participate in the activities you want and skip the others.  Everything during your retreat is completely optional. Rest assured that no matter what your current level of activity or ability, you will be able to participate.  All of the practices are inclusive, and all participants are supported to ensure that everyone gets what they need.

Meet Your Facilitator

Jenny Jackson

Jenny Jackson has been immersed in Movement Education for more than 20 years. Jenny is a seeker of inner well-being, and she consciously aligns herself living with an open mind, an open heart and embodies joy & vitality which is reflected in her welcoming & inclusive style of instruction. She teaches with a strong anatomical influence while still deeply honouring the classical roots of yoga. Jenny believes that feeling vital and in harmony with others & within our own selves is the primary goal (in life and in our bodies), and practice should reflect this.
