Energy with Ease: The Ultimate Yoga and Wellness Experience

Cammeray Waters, Woodend, VIC
September 21-23 2018

If you’re ready for a retreat that leaves you feeling vital, inspired and unapologetically you then this is the retreat for you!

 

Do you long for more vitality to help power your dreams, passions and relationships?

Are you hungry for a different wellness experience that celebrates food, nature and your feminine body (whatever your shape or size)?

Are you utterly and bone-crushingly exhausted from the endless expectations that you need to meet?

Do you yearn for a break from the worry, rumination and self-talk that haunts your waking hours (and maybe your non-waking hours too)?

Are you ready to authentically connect with yourself and other like minded women in a space where you are celebrated for being you?

Energy with Ease is the answer! And here’s why….

Imagine waking from a deeply restful slumber to the sounds of birds crying in the crisp Spring air. You look out your window to see mist ascending from the lake, gum trees as far as the eye can see. Your room is warm and cozy, and as you sip on your morning herbal tea and wait for your home-style cooked breakfast, you roll your shoulders and feel the stressors of the past weeks and months melting away.

You feel a surge of creative energy returning – like the Spring flowers preparing to burst around you – as you explore feminine wellness practices designed to awaken energy and release past hurts. You walk on the damp, crisp grass – taking in the 110 acres of bushland and watching the kangaroos dance on the hills.

You sense your body’s potential, indulging in flowing feminine yoga practices designed for every body and deep embodiment work to help restore your loving connection with her. Your lifeforce is pulsing from the deeply restorative and nourishing herbs that you sip as herbal elixirs – each one designed to awaken your energy and optimize your vitality.

Picture your excitement at connecting with women just like you – who have big dreams and open hearts and stories of hurts that are ready to be healed. You feel giddy acknowledging that this is a perfectly safe space to show up just as you are – and be totally loved and accepted. Together you laugh, play, create and dine on deeply nourishing seasonal food – paired with local wines and cheese platters to indulge the senses and release all those pleasure hormones that have long been dormant.

In case you’re wondering where this magical place is….

This is the Energy with Ease retreat – and we’d love to have you join us!

This retreat is the perfectly balanced combination of relaxation, restoration and reconnection – designed to help you optimize your energy and bid adieu to fatigue, the feminine way. Using the seasons as the framework, you’ll explore herbs, cycles, nature, yoga and mindfulness – leaving you with a toolkit full of feminine rituals and practices to use at home.

Each workshop, practice and experience has been designed to deeply nourish your womanly body, mind and soul – teaching you an empowering path to wellness that encourages you to accept, rather than punish, the body you’ve been given.

At the end of your deeply personalized journey, you will feel open, nourished, loving, confident and wholly, unapologetically ready to show up in the world as you…. Just in time for spring and summer. You’ll also be taking home a contact list full of soul sisters who are ready to support and celebrate you no matter what.

 

THE VENUE

Nature heals and allows the nervous system some much-needed respite from our busy world and with 110 acres of bushland to explore, there is much healing to be had on this retreat! Cammeray Waters is a stunning country style accommodation located outside the village of Woodend in the Macedon Ranges (55 minutes from Melbourne CBD). It’s the perfect place to stay for exploring the magnificent Macedon Ranges including Hanging Rock, local wineries and eateries and the staff are a close-knit, helpful bunch who believe in delivering amazing hospitality.

You will enjoy your own cozy single room with ensuite, tea and coffee making facilities and a heater for the whole weekend – ensuring your privacy and some much needed down time. A shared common area with fire will be available all weekend if you want to cosy up with a book in a big arm chair or chat with your new besties over a meal or glass of wine.

THE FOOD

We believe that connecting over a beautiful prepared meal produces as many feel good hormones as a decent yoga class. This retreat is all about nourishing, not punishing your body. You’ll dine on locally sourced, seasonal food designed to warm your body and awaken your energy. Breakfast will be a buffet affair with loads of fruit, muesli and artisanal pastries at the ready – as well as the option of a full cooked breakfast and espresso coffee. Lunches – an opportunity to fuel up before daily ‘dreamtime’ (free time) – will offer warming Spring soups and sandwiches loaded with all the good stuff designed to get your feminine body humming. Dinner will be a cooked delight, showcasing all that the Macedon Ranges has to offer in terms of grass-fed meats, slow-roasted veggies and house-baked bread.

Local paired wines and cheeses will allow you to linger with your soul sisters long after the formal workshops of the day have closed – allowing you to explore the true healing power of connection. Throughout the day you will sip herbal teas (or normal tea and coffee too) that have been carefully selected by our naturopath to optimize your energy and hit refresh on your body’s computer.

 

THE PLEASURES

Each morning you’ll settle into your body with a carefully designed yoga and meditation practice. We love teaching this stuff – so regardless of whether you’re a seasoned yogi, just starting out, or sporting an injury – we’ll help you move in a nourishing way that’s right for you. We’ll have a masseuse on site who is able to give you a massage in your very own room – and there’ll be plenty of time for stretching those limbs and grounding your energy on the many walking tracks available. Rather than being a serious affair, we foster a space of laughter, lightness and learning – and you’ll derive much energy and creativity from remembering the joy in having a good old belly laugh with your peers.

THE ACTIVITIES

 

This retreat is equal parts learning, reflection and relaxation – it has been designed in an experiential way, but is packed with feminine wellness tools and principles that you can use long after the retreat is over. Ultimately, we want to show you how to get more energy, with less stress. You’ll learn

  • how to identify and plug your own energetic leaks
  • how to get clarity on what you really want – and let go of other people’s goals
  • how to work with herbs, teas and other supplements to optimise your energy
  • how to use your cycle and the seasons to supercharge your wellbeing and productivity
  • how to work with a woman’s natural energy production system
  • how to support your nutritional needs and adrenal health – without the stress
  • practices to help you treat your nervous system as a friend, not a foe

What people say about retreating with Beyond Being Well:

At the start of the retreat I was interested, but a little closed. By the end of the retreat I felt open, connected, whole and worthy. My biggest takeaway was to trust myself, the process and the universe. I think what you do and your intention is amazing, and your impact on the world is undeniably awesome!’ – Jodie, VIC

 

By the end of the retreat I had gone from frazzled, depleted, stressed, overwhelmed, lonely and wounded to calm, peaceful, full of love and connected to my feelings. My biggest takeaway has been to get out of my head when feeling sad/hurt. The food and accommodation was perfect too, thank you’ – Kirsten – VIC
