Wellness Within: Week Retreat to Nourish your Mind, Body & Spirit

Sunday, October 2 – Friday, October 7, 2022

Have you strayed from your optimum way of being?

Do you feel disconnected from your vital self?

Are you seeking a getaway to nourish, rest, rejuvenate and reset?

This 5-night retreat has a focus on wellness practices aimed at supporting you in your quest towards your best self. Enjoy this time just for you!

-Daily yoga, meditation & mindful movement classes

-Nourishing vegan meals made with love

-Nature hikes and walking meditations to bathe in the forest and connect with the earth

-Workshops to encourage introspection and self-awareness promoting habit shifts, intention setting, and connecting to your true nature

Just being immersed in the Sugar Ridge environment is a naturally peaceful experience; Autumn is a time to go within and nurture our own selves as we prepare for the darkness of the winter months. It is a time of deep introspection and self-care. This week is your time to relax, unwind, and reconnect body, mind and spirit as you become mindful of all that surrounds you and is within you. Listen to the birds, the breeze. Feel your heartbeat, the rise and fall of your breath. 

Throughout the week you are invited to explore various forms of mindfulness meditations including sitting, walking and eating, as well as mindful movement through a variety of multi-levelled exercise practices and activities. 

No experience with yoga or meditation is necessary! This retreat is perfect if you’re curious about it but not sure how to start or what to expect. This retreat is a perfect choice for you even if you have physical limitations to movement, little or no meditation or yoga experience. Beginners will discover how to sit comfortably, and experienced practitioners can deepen their practice. No need to sit on the floor if that’s not comfortable – chairs are always available, as well as guidance on modified poses.

Everything during your retreat is completely optional. This is YOUR time. If you need to sleep in then skip the early morning yoga session. If a massage is the nurturing you need, we can book that for you. Allow this time to be the kindest gift you could ever give yourself and honour your needs.

Meet Your Teacher

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.

Expect well-planned, responsible, creative & intuitive instruction within Jenny’s classes and retreats. Trust that your needs will be supported and a sense of inclusion & community will always be a focus. Jenny takes her offerings (but not herself) very seriously, so you can relax and be yourself as she leads with humour and vulnerability
