Personal Retreats

Last week we had the opportunity to offer a personal retreat to a mother/daughter as a Christmas gift from the husband/father.  It was so much fun, and an honor to create the space for their personalized retreat day.  They began their day with a Yoga on the Beach class, and then we offered them tea by the sea, as they relaxed and communed in Ft Zachary State Park.  (Want to read the view from our clients, check out their blog.)

Then it was off to a beautiful garden setting for their massages provided by Ocean Wellness Spa.  In the shade of the palm trees with the waterfall singing the song of relaxation each of them had a personal and healing session with their massage therapist.  They showered off and freshened up and then it was off to the kitchen for a little detox and dine session with Celine Peccatte.

Celine offered a hands-on kitchen session for each of them to learn more about how to explore detoxing for the body, healthy eating and food preparation with the end process being their healthy lunch.  YUM!

Next they sat outside doing a mandala coloring meditation.  Choosing their own mandala they sat in the quiet of the yard, picking their colors and delving into the healing powers of their mandala.  They loved it!

Their day ended receiving a Reiki session with Nancy Curran and Don Bartolone.   Their one hour hands on healing session offered each of the retreatants time to breathe, relax and find a deep sense of inner calm.  They gently drew themselves off the tables grinning, and in deep gratitude.  What was wonderful was how the feeling was across the board as all of the Yoga on the Beach and Ocean Wellness Spa facilitators felt the same way.
