Carolina and Gabriela are creating this wellbeing morning for you to have an opportunity to connect with yourself. Recharge, reconnect and replenish from within.
A mindful morning to honor the arrival of the winter season in our lives. Winter connects us with the Water element, which is moist and cold. It is a time when our internal heat is diminished and so our internal vitality. It is a time to pause, to rest and maybe withdraw a little bit from the busyness of the Summer days when we wake up earlier, we go to bed later and we feel like doing much more. During Wintertime we are a little bit more mellow, not quite as driven or urgent as we have been on the previous seasons, you can give yourself permission to rest more or spend more time alone. The Water element reminds us we are much more emotional, more sensitive and we need to treat ourselves to a bit more TLC. Sometimes we are recuperating, or we are preparing for what’s next…A day to catch your breath, make space and create.
We are going to practice a fluid Yoga sequence to connect with our inner selves, to honor our intentions, restore and replenish from within. We are going to do an uplifting and creative visualization to reconnect with our emotional wellbeing and bring back clarity and ease. We will pour our subtle experiences in Art form so we can go deeper and get even more insights. Get ready for a very juicy, mindful morning! We will create an intuitive Mandala! Please don’t think you have to be an artist to allow yourself to be creative. A Mandala is a circular design that evokes wholeness, integration and invites us to journey within to bring clarity and radiance to the outside. We will enjoy a delicious and healthy morning tea. We cater for all your needs. This event is hosted by Gabriela Beatson from Gladstone Yoga and Carolina Bocos from Wise Earth Wellbeing.
