Press “reset” with an immersion in Bali at the only ConnectTherapy & Yoga Retreat in the world.
Do you ever wish you could find a ‘pause’ button for your life to allow you a moment to rest, refresh and reset? Do you move as well or as much as you’d like to?
With the nine-to-five work day (and the raft of other commitments in life) do you struggle to find time to sort out your body’s aches and niggles? (Rarely do we have the time and space to focus on ourselves, with the constantly completing challenges to our time and focus.)
I am very excited to bring you my Therapeutic Immersion Program, based on the principles of ConnectTherapyTM(an innovative approach to Physiotherapy), Yoga & Pilates. This world-first program is distilled into three days to give you the opportunity to kick-start a positive change. Family members (children and partners) are most welcome to join us. The venue has been especially selected as it is family friendly.
Therapeutic Immersion Program
This program suits people of all levels of yoga – from the advanced practitioner or Yoga Teacher wishing to understand and change pain and restriction patterns in their body which limit their practice through to the complete beginner. The purpose of this program is two fold:
- To provide the time and space to rest, relax and unwind in the beautiful, tranquil surroundings.
- To create a road-map for longer-lasting change to get you moving well and feeling better.
We will do this by working together to build an individualized (and therapeutic) yoga practice that you can continue long after the retreat is over. This family friendly immersion has two streams: Purely Yoga (Akasha) or ConnectTherapy 1:1 sessions + Yoga (Chikitsa).
Akasha – Yoga Immersion
Akasha means “space” and is at the heart of this program. Space to relax and a space to connect. It includes 1-2 daily yoga classes, meals and accommodation with time for relaxation and exploration of the beautiful Balinese surroundings. There is a communal space to connect with others or retreat to your private room or cottage. There are four places available in the Akasha program.
Chikitsa – Yoga Therapy
There are just four places available on the therapy stream, which will be run in conjuction with the Akasha stream.
The Chikitsa (“Therapy”) stream includes the added extra of 3x 60minute ConnectTherapy consultations with a me (an experienced yoga teacher and one of a handful of Certified ConnectTherapy practitioners in the world). These sessions will take place throughout the retreat (and are eligible for a health fund rebate for participants who have Extra’s cover with their private health fund).
I am one of a handful of ConnectTherapy Certified Practitioners. I am deeply passionate about making it easier for people to enjoy being active. People normally reach out to me when they’re struggling with pain, recurring injuries or sub-par sports performance, or if their body is simply not allowing them to do the things they love.
From 15 years of yoga practice and ten years as a physiotherapist and yoga teacher, I personally have been frustrated with traditional approaches to therapy and yoga with my own recurring injuries. I also know how hard it is to put yourself first when you have a family to consider. These factors have inspired the creation of this Therapeutic Immersion Program.
