Wellness Within: Mindful Movement and Meditation Retreat

Mindful Practices

This retreat has a focus on mindfulness practices to create a space of wellness from the inside out. Enjoy this time just for you as you experience practices in both movement and stillness, creating a blended balance of Yang & Yin energies in body, mind & spirit.

Your guide and instructor for this retreat, Jenny Jackson, embodies the essence of balance with her extensive professional background in both high energy fitness coaching, and also over 20 years of guiding yoga practices. 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! This retreat is perfect if you’re curious about it but not sure where to start. Everything during your retreat is completely optional. 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.

Meet Your Facilitator

Jenny Jackson

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.
