2:00pm – 3:30pm: Retreat opening. We’ll welcome you to our retreat space and begin to understand what it means to “thrive”
What does it mean to Thrive?
It is common in wellness communities to talk about concepts like work/life balance. In our experience, we find the pursuit of balance can be a cause of stress in itself. Instead, we like to talk about what it takes to thrive, no matter what is happening in your life.
3:30pm – 5:00pm: Introduction to the 4 pillars of Thriving
This is a practical and active session that introduces us to the 4 pillars of thriving – Movement/Breath/Mindfulness/Conscious Consumption. We get moving, we get breathing and we get mindful. This is suitable for anyone with advanced practices in these areas or complete beginners.

In this masterclass, we talk about how to identify your unique nutrition needs and how to get more energy from what you consume and don’t consume. There are literally hundreds of dietary theories, each one trying hard to become the next super trend that will change your life. This is a multi-billion $ industry! In reality, every body is unique and has different needs so a 1 size fits all approach does not work.
