Event description
A day to relax while you learn specific tools to improve your wellbeing, relationships and manage your stress.

About this Event

If your daily routine and responsibilities mean you usually come last on the list, then disappearing to a retreat may feel like an indulgence and something you could never do. Time for ourselves is a basic human need that we often overlook when other demands such as work, family and the stuff of life need our attention. 

Sandie and Toni designed The Life, Love and other stuff Day Retreat  to refresh and inspire with expert talks and workshops on living life to your full potential, how to detox your mind and how to better navigate the stresses and strains of life.

Our day will help you enhance all your relationships, with others, with food and with yourself. All of this is anchored by mindful movement on and off a mat to ease out your stiff and achy joints while teaching you a simple 5-mins restorative exercise hack you can do anytime, anywhere; at home, during your commute or while taking a walk.

Research has shown that just one day can be the catalyst for change and provide enough mental and physical space to release you from the routine of daily responsibilities and allow you to concentrate on yourself, refocus and relax.

Who is this for?

This day provides a safe and supportive environment for people experiencing emotional or physical exhaustion, feeling a reduced sense of accomplishment, struggling with imposter syndrome, feeling on the edge of burnout, or simply in need of some quality time out.

Our highly trained experienced coach and health professional invite you to take a day away for yourself and will share their essential and achievable tips for boosting your energy and restoring your wellbeing.

They aim that you leave The Life, Love and other stuff Day Retreat  refreshed, informed, inspired and nurtured.
