We created an oasis 20 minutes outside of Brisbane CBD. Haven Yoga shares our first Wellness Day Retreat wrap up!
Recently, we held our first Wellness Day Retreat at our studio in Murarrie. It was a beautiful day filled with meditation, yoga, crystal bowl sound healing, a creative wellbeing session weaving intention into beautiful heartfelt vessels, and a very insightful numerology session.
The connections we make on these wellness days are felt long after and a sense of peace and relaxation presides. It would also be remiss to not mention the incredible food.
Balancing the Chakras
We began the day with a class to balance all the chakras and introduce the seven crystal bowls. Through our chakras, we can transmit and receive physical, emotional, and spiritual energy that we require for our day ahead. This session left everyone feeling calm and energised for the rest of the day retreat. The yoga session was suitable for all levels.
Janice led the Numerology session to a deeper level of understanding about who we are and why we do the things we do. We all know communication is the key to any relationship. Numerology provides individuals and groups with powerful tools to help gain a deeper understanding of oneself and each other. Numerology helps you understand more about yourself, the way you communicate and how to be the best you can be in any situation.
Kundalini works by combining aspects of Bhakti yoga (including chanting), Raja yoga (for achieving mental and physical control), and Shakti yoga (expression of power and energy). Done properly, kundalini activates the mental, perceptual and feeling faculties of our physical self. Using different movements, postures, meditative and breathing techniques; kundalini helps release the full potential and potency of our inner energy by pulling it up through the base of the spine, through the top of the crown and out, helping to improve the balance, flow and functionality of our energy.
Crystal Bowls and Meditation
Crystal singing bowls create healing through sound, cleansing through their crystal, and clear the space to intensify meditation. Running the mallet around the bowl with slight pressure creates the tone and each bowl has a different tone. When this happens, the bowl is said to sing, hence its name. The healing power of the bowls is amazing and the resulting feeling of wellbeing after the session, sublime.
Creative Wellbeing Session
Made in mimicry of Mother Nature, the bowls we weave in this session remind us to tread lightly, find stillness, and listen to the whispers of our hearts. Create and take home your own personalised bowl of light and love and stand along with a re-kindled sense of connection. Tania gently holds creative space to guide you to make and embellish,
using found natural materials and the qualities of lightness found in the natural world. Together as we make, we slow down, we hold the intention, we become mindful, we listen, and share.
Thank you again to everyone who joined us and thanks to Janice from Healing Vine and Tania from Tania Budd Art Life for your partnership.
