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.

This retreat is perfect if you’re curious about mindfulness but not sure where to start.  This is YOUR time. If you need to sleep in, then skip the early morning yoga session. Allow this time to be the kindest gift you can ever give yourself, and honour your true needs.

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.

What to Expect this Weekend

– Cleanse and nourish your body with yummy organic vegan meals, while you also nourish your soul.

– Come into physical balance with movement classes that will flex your muscles, as well as your mind & spirit.

– Create your resilient emotional balance with mindfulness-based meditation.

– Enjoy the beauty around you with time hiking the forest.

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.
