Monthly Meditation Mini-Retreats

Held once a month on a Friday morning, these guided meditation sessions will offer a mini-retreat atmosphere to participants. Relaxation and restoration will be over-arching aims of these sessions.

Over the course of the year, participants will be guided through practices that help to nourish body and mind. Themed sessions will focus on incorporating principles from iRest yoga nidra, mindfulness, Flow psychology, and restorative yoga. Practices will help develop ease and relaxation in being. Relaxation is a powerful antidote to stress, anxiety, fatigue, and sleep disturbance. Sessions provide an opportunity to unwind, reset, and re-energise in a retreat-like setting.

These Friday morning sessions will be held between 10am – 12noon, at a lovely yoga and meditation studio in Upper Brookfield. Owned and run by Celia Roberts, this stunning studio provides a natural, light-filled sanctuary in the western suburbs of Brisbane. A variety of meditation and yoga props will be available to help participants relax body and mind through the guided meditation practices.

Costs: Each session is $50 if paying on the day, or prebook multiple sessions for a discount through either paypal or direct deposit. Please see below for available package deals.

I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your session last Friday – I literally floated out of there and through most of the rest of my day (big achievement for me!)

I have even engaged mindful walking at home – much to the amusement of my family.  I love collecting meditation and mindfulness tools and you have helped to stock my toolbox just a bit more, so I thank you for that.

I’m really looking forward to the next two sessions.
