workshops & events

I provide a range of workshops and events that cater to your health and well being needs. I believe that we all need a safe space to work on you time. To take time out to make space for reflection, rest & relaxation. But do we do it? No! Why? Possibly because we don't know how! Lets try to shift out of the matrix of busy busy busy! Because that is making us sick! It is not selfish to take time out for yourself, it is necessary!

With this in mind I offer the time and space that we ALL need. Everyone from our little people to seasoned life professionals. Any age and time is a good place to start! So start here.

WELLNESS DAY RETREAT

2021 Dates:

Monday 4th of January

Saturday 23rd of January 

Saturday 17th of April 

Saturday 3rd of July 

 

Are you in need of a deep RESET? 

 

Have you been running on autopilot for way too long & not given yourself some time to REST & RESTORE?

 

My time in teaching took me to an all new level of stress, to the point it was making me sick & I was developing and autoimmune disease. 

 

Now, I bring all of my skills together to create these self care events. This is the kind of thing that would've supported my stress management & overall health & wellness. But, clearly I had to learnt the hard way, by burning out first. Hindsight was my greatest teacher! 

 

We all deserve & need time to get still & slow down. We all need to have a day to ourselves where we can go within and & shake off the busyness of modern life & press pause.

This is for you if:

  • You are stressed, anxious & burnt out

  • You want a day for yourself, to NURTURE & NOURISH your mind body & soul (...& still go back to the comfort of your own bed)

  • You need a little SUPPORT & GUIDANCE to help slow down & reflect on your current habits & lifestyle. 

  • You love the idea of an urban retreat in the Lower Blue Mountains

  • You've always wanted to try a retreat but haven't got a week to travel & the funds to try one overseas.

WHAT IS INCLUDED:

  • 2 x 75 minute yoga sessions

  • Make & take session

  • Light morning tea

  • Group Health Coaching session

  • Plant based lunch

  • Herbal tea & Self Care Planning time

  • 1:1 coaching time

  • Reflection & gratitude

OBJECTIVES:

  • Move the body & connect with the breath

  • Bring awareness to nourishing the body & mind

  • Learn about stress and the impact it's having on you

  • Cultivate mindfulness

  • Creative time

  • Learn to become reflective & develop a gratitude mindset

Arrive: 8:45 am

Start: 9 am

TESTIMONIALS

BLISS NIGHT TESTIMONIAL

Feeling very relaxed after enjoying an evening full of ”bliss”! Will definitely go back for another session. Thank you so much Ash!

Moira, High School Teacher

BLISS NIGHT TESTIMONIAL

attended Ash's Bliss Night workshop on the weekend and absolutely loved it! It was amazing to be able to take a "time out" for myself where I didn't have to think or worry and could just let go of stresses. Totally suitable for yogaphobes as it was incredibly low impact and all about relaxation. I left feeling completely re-centered and was definitely blissed out. I will definitely be attending again. Thanks again Ash!

KIDS HOLIDAY YOGA WORKSHOP JULY 2020

We chose Awaken Yoga initially because the Kids School Holiday Workshop itinerary on Facebook looked like decent and relevant to what I wanted Jaida to experience. We were new to the area so it was nice to find something like this close by. I couldn’t afford to send Jaida to the weekly program, so the school holidays workshop was a great option. We have tried to book in each school holidays.

Jaida says “it’s fun and it feels relaxing. Ashlynn is kind and sweet. There is yummy banana bread and fruit.” 🤣🤣

We still have a decorated pot with a succulent from Easter last year! She always brings back something handmade that we love.

This is only place where Jaida keeps returning to. We would recommend it to anyone ❤️

KIDS HOLIDAY YOGA WORKSHOP TESTIMONIAL

My daughter has attended Awaken Health Wellness Yoga kids workshops twice now in the school holidays and has raved about the fantastic time she had and all the exciting things she learned. What I love about these workshops is that the kids get to learn calming yoga practices & meditation while still being kids and having fun. The day is well catered and run and overall just a great way for kids to spend a day in the holidays. I highly recommend to anyone wanting their little ones to try something new during holiday time.
