Relax and Renew Day Retreat
with Natalie Snooke

Sunday 24 June 2018

How will you mark the mid-way of your 2018? Join us to create calm, boost your self-care and reconnect with your goals and what's most important to you, in a relaxing and nourishing space.  

"To experience peace does not always mean that your life is blissful.  It means that you are capable of tapping into a blissful state of mind amidst the normal chaos of a hectic life."  Jill Bolte Taylor    

Our Relax and Renew Day Retreat offers a unique blend of gentle yoga and meditation practice, along with self-growth activities to create a practical and meaningful self-growth experience. 

The benefits for you include:

  • A revitalised body, mind and spirit
  • Reconnecting to your heart and what's most important to you in life
  • Quiet time-out and writing for clarity, creativity and wisdom
  • Rediscovering your personal strengths and opportunities
  • Being nourished with delicious wholesome food
  • Enjoying a relaxed pace, in like-minded company
  • A free, follow-up one-on-one life coaching session.
With Natalie's light-hearted inspiration and skillful guidance, you'll be encouraged to slow down, be curious, be honest and to simplify. The only pre-requisite is a willingness to give yourself this time.
"Your Day Retreats are my first choice when it comes to helping myself to grow. Your yoga is first-class and there's a realness and relatability, that's not intimidating or too difficult for anyone. It's a day I always leave feeling inspired, alive and aware." Carlia Nield

"I found your Day Retreat to be a gentle, yet empowering experience. And a must for anyone no matter what your current circumstances." Shelley Griffiths     

Move, Breathe & MeditateRelax & Renew Day Retreat 

Your day retreat begins with a gentle yin-yang yoga practice, to balance the body and centre the mind, setting a steady foundation for deep relaxation and self-reflection to unfold. 

The yin-yang yoga practice is mostly restorative, seated and lying postures, with some strengthening and standing sequences, suitable for all body types. Natalie's approach is nurturing and all-inclusive - with plenty of instructions, props and hands-on assistance to help beginners, as well as subtle cues for experienced yogis who enjoy deeper practice. 

You'll also be guided through pranayama (breath work) to calm the nervous system and settle the mind. Taking deeper, fuller breaths evenly through the nose balances the active/passive aspects of the brain and brings mental clarity, allowing us greater access to our inner wisdom. The breathing techniques are valuable practices that you can take-home and use for yourself.   

The day concludes with guided relaxation and meditation, to allow your learning and realisations to deepen, and enable you to return to your life feeling a natural sense of confidence and renewal. 

"As a guy not having done yoga before, I realised that I don't have to 'get it perfect'. I liked the breathing techniques, reflecting on my mindset and learning to enjoy, without judgment.All up, it was a great and very centring day." AH                                 

Be Nourished

We provide a fresh, homemade, vegetarian buffet lunch, that's prepared with love.

There's also healthy morning and afternoon snacks and a selection of herbal teas, plus our homemade chai! The food is mostly organic and seasonally sourced from local suppliers. Anyone on special diets, such as gluten-free or vegan, will be happily catered for - just let us know when you register.
"The day was relaxing time to check-in and a mixture of yoga, meditation, discussion and self-reflection. It was a nourishing and nurturing space and awesome food!"  PS


Practical Self-Growth

Spending a full day on retreat is valuable time-out for deeper reflection and self-growth. 

Included on the Day Retreat is a self-growth session that gets you thinking, talking and engaged with: written self-assessments; reflection activities; practical tools and group discussion. You'll be guided to acknowledge the life challenges, opportunities and transitions that you currently find yourself in.  In a supportive, non-judgmental space you will get to share your insights, explore perspectives, get creative and take meaningful, practical steps to apply in your everyday life.   

Depending on the season and the needs of the men and women in the group, the self-growth session can include: 
  • inspiring articles or poetry for group discussion;
  • reflective writing and activities;
  • exploring patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving to create shifts;
  • learning practical, lifestyle skills that support your growth;
  • creating intentions, goals, visions or action plans.  
A week or so after the retreat, we follow-up with you for your one-on-one Life Coaching session. It's optional, so you don't have to take it. But many people find this really valuable and helps them to stay focused and more committed to healthier lifestyle habits in everyday life, beyond the Day Retreat.

"Your retreat was a great learing opportunity, in good company. It is difficult to put into words, there were so many useful apsects. Overall it gave me ideas and practical ways that I can adopt at home to addres my work-life balance issues. It had more substance than many self-development courses offered elsewhere. And thank you for the awesome food!"  CB
"The time to slow down and reconnect, being a one-day retreat, made it more accessible than a weekend or week-long event. It was just what I needed. The reflection activity on the horizontal and vertical planes was a great conceptual way of looking at the whole-self." NW


Who Can Attend?

The relaxed,  carefully-designed program gives you a mix of guided yogic practice, group activities and silent, self-reflective time. The small group of up to 16 participants keeps things personal and real.

"Your relaxed and informal approach gave me the space and time for personal reflection. Taking the time to focus on me, I enjoyed setting clear intentions and learning how to be more purposeful in my thoughts and actions."  Mel Marsh    

"It was a wonderful, relaxing and insightful day that has allowed me to honestly reassess my life. I always love coming to Momentum and sharing the beautiful atmosphere and energy. Thank you." Janet Ingham
