This retreat gets booked up fast so get your name down early 🙂 for 2020 we are in the house…many more ensuite rooms and more available for us in the larger studio overlooking the mountains!

This retreat is especially designed for people who experience chronic or regular intense bursts of anxiety or something similar whether generally worrisome mind or experience elements of an overactive mind.  All classes and workshops will be tailor-made for this, allowing you to enjoy a weekend of stress-free ease with plenty of downtime and chances to use new techniques. Not to mention be around like-minded souls to truly feel understood and listened to.



Yoga level

This is set to a gentle yoga level. I wouldn’t describe it as beginners or advanced because yoga means more than the physical. However, it’s a good level for beginners to join even if you’ve never done yoga before. Those who are more experienced are more than welcome to my classes and retreats and often do so due to the mindfulness-based approach to yoga and the emphasis on emotional release as part of the yogic process, in support of their more physical-based yoga.

Yoga means the union of the mind, body, and soul and is more than yoga asanas (postures) so for a holistic approach to rest, relaxation and rebalance – and therefore overall healing and wellness this yoga retreat would be right for you. I encourage you to take your own leadership in classes, to increase or lower energy levels and what you put in, based on your intuition for your body that day or for your mind. This builds confidence and self-leadership to make your own choices and lead your life to what is right for you. Only you know the difference between challenge, pain, lethargy etc and each day is different.

When you feel you want to just be present in the energy of a class but not be too physically involved you will be encouraged to stop and rest and just be. This is especially good for people with fatigue or recovering from illness.

Anxiety and fatigue

If you regularly experience anxiety or have had an acute stage turn chronic or excessive and need some much needed time out, but also learning and practicing the tools and techniques to gain your life back through then you will find it on this much-needed sanctuary. You will be welcomed gently and be comforted knowing you are in a safe place surrounded by supportive people.

I specialise in anxiety relief, having experienced it myself on various levels from burnout, stress, grief, trauma, illness to motherhood, and I believe that breaking the anxiety cycle comes through the choices we make. So I also know that even stepping into a retreat can be a brave choice but remember that a retreat is how it sounds, a getaway, a relaxation and most of all full of empowered choices to do what you want when you want.

I want to share with you how we can work through anxiety by exploring various anxiety relief techniques that I have discovered on my own healing journey and also ones I have been trained in as part of my profession as a psychologist and hypnotherapist, NLP coach, trainer and facilitator, yoga and meditation teacher, reiki master and masseuse, Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology amongst other bits and bars that can be found on my about us and testimonials.  I have worked with naturopaths, hypnotherapists, energy healers and so on in my own recovery of adrenal fatigue and found my place back to health.

At inspire and Rewire, we aim to restore your balance and draw out your self leadership to live an empowered life the way you know you can live it: mind, body and soul. On this retreat we will explore various techniques that you can opt in and out of. I will hold a space for you to breathe, to learn, apply and grow.          

This space for you to make your own choice starts here. You can choose what you opt in or out of and with lots of down time, you can practise in your own space. For some rest as much as ‘doing’. It’s important when healing to just be, without rushing, without a deadline and without expectation.  On this retreat you will have introductions to the mind, body and spirit element without being overwhelmed with in-depth technicalities that can exhaust you further or cause more anxiety, but be enough to show you what can help to reassure you and also work as a tool for you.

This is a great retreat if you struggle with getting moving or holding onto your energy as we will only tap into things at a pace that is slower and time to digest, with options to take a break and opt out. This also includes any movement that we practice.

All of the below have been known for anxiety relief and generating energy:

Gentle movement

Breathing techniques



Relaxation techniques



The arts

And more…. Which I will share with you.  We will be exploring some of the above.  And more…. Which I will share with you. We will be exploring some of the above. Looking forward to sharing with you one of our 1 hour video workshops of one of the above themes for free as part of this retreat. You’ll be given a coupon that will let you access the video.

In addition to what is offered you will also have the opportunity to opt for an audio recorded hypno/ meditation that is tailor made for you and will be sent direct to you inbox after the event.

I was watching a show on health the other day and they did an experiment with singing on reducing cortisol (the stress hormone) and increasing oxytocin (the love, bonding, and general wellbeing hormone) and the outcome of the cortisol test before and after was what I was expecting. One lady dropped by 80% afterward.
I go to a wonderful singing group every month but would go more if I could. The release is amazing not just through the pleasure of singing but the physical act of singing and using the throat chakra to remove blockages, plus the mental stimulation and the sense of community as you sing and work with others.
Singing is not for everyone but on this retreat, we will dabble (optional of course), in about 1 1/2 hours of working with sound and the throat in mantra or song. Don’t worry, it won’t be anything ‘out there’, and no you don’t need to be able to sing. It’s a very liberating and uplifting exploration if you want to participate. Otherwise, you can tootle off for a walk, or read. All our retreats are based on your choices and empowerment but on this retreat we aim to share opportunities to explore activities that might help. How do you know if you don’t try?
With like-minded and supportive peers we will also look into different types of therapy and as a way of expression.  We have experienced, singing, yoga, meditation, art, and dance with more to go. On this retreat, we will also share some background and information on 

anxiety to help you better understand your body and mind. This is a retreat to help reduce anxiety and fatigue so you can opt in and out when you want.
