Workshop: Good Enough-Awaken Your New Self-Jeannie Spencer
You are enough. And yet there are times when we act like we are not. We say we are, but our actions speak louder than those thoughts. You have the power to make significant changes in your life. And yet, limiting beliefs make you fearful and feel stuck in your negative surrounding. Are you aware that this negative programming lurks deep in the subconscious mind? It continually runs over and over, and most of the time we are oblivious to its power.
Get ready to experience positive changes in every area of your life. Wether you feel stuck in a job, a negative relationship or fearful of taking that next step to follow your dream, Jeannie will lead you through an easy series of progressive exercises using self hypnosis and powerful techniques.
Using the power of your subconscious mind and the power of present mind tools, Jeannie will guide you down a new path to explore where your beliefs come from, help you understand why you tolerate it and explore the unlimited possibilities of where you truly want to go.
“You are what you repeatedly do. If you continue to do what you are doing you will get the same results, if you change your behaviours and consciously and consistently practice them you will get new results.”
Morning Meditation – Jeannie Spencer
Jeannie will lead you on a deeply moving guided group meditation. Set your intentions for the day and watch them blossom!
Workshop: Creative Journalling – Connecting to the Story Within You – Nicolle Nattrass
“Whatever you write is RIGHT” Gillie Bolton
Journaling is a powerful healing tool that has come a long way and now through scientific study and evidence we can see the results.
The focus of this workshop is Self-Care and will provide you with more information on journaling, new tools to you and how to use journaling to increase productivity, manage stress and to uncover, recover & discover creative interests and goals.
No writing experience required. A Beginner’s Mind is the only prerequisite.
Bring Your Journal & Pen.
Daily Yoga Instruction
Take the time to find quiet and stillness in this slow paced style of yoga that allows us to stimulate our connective tissues by holding poses, as opposed to moving through them. Yin yoga will increase mobility, lower stress levels, lubricate the joints, increase flexibility and enhance relaxation. Let Leanne show you the joy of being under the Yin-fluence!
A sweet symphony of flow yoga, core focused Pilates moves and traditional fitness, fused with sublime, inspiring music. You will leave this class feeling strong, refreshed and revitalized.
For both classes: All levels of fitness welcome, no previous yoga experience necessary. You are worth it!
The wind down. Let’s end this awesome day with a gentle stretch and take some time to slow down and let it all settle in. All levels are welcome to join, please be sure to bring layers and your yoga mat.
Through her years of teaching and coaching, Leanne has seen many women become strong not just physically, but also mentally, as they gain inner strength and confidence. Through moving their bodies, not being too hard on themselves and taking the time for self-care on a consistent basis, these women reach goals they had only ever dreamed of. They finally figured out that they’re worth it! Leanne will inspire you to take simple steps to lead your best life in these busy, hectic times.

Workshop: Curate a Life that Feels Good – Tina Quade
How does a good life feel to you? After some relaxation and visualization practices, we will explore some of the conditions for feeling good (e.g. managing stress, self-love) and get clear on what makes you feel good and how to bring more of it into your life. We’ll explore both sides – the nudges of displeasure and the pieces that bring you flickers of joy. Handouts will be provided to help you in your dreaming + scheming.
Workshop: Create a Bracelet with Meaning – Tina Quade
