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.

Hi Gorgeous people! 


Are you tired, overworked, and needed by everybody all the time?

Sometimes slowing down & actually managing stress feels like too much work. But I assure you, it is absolutely worth it!

These BLISS classes are an experience that is so divine, you'll want to do it again & again. That is my intention too, to facilitate a safe space for you to take the deep rest that you need & to do it regularly for the best impact.

I'll guide you through a beautifully restful & equally rejuvenating Yin & Restorative Yoga experience. All you have to do is show up & let the bliss vibes flow!

Relax with gentle yoga, unwind in my studio oasis with me, or in your own oasis (online) with a herbal tea, maybe a yummy treat & some soft smooth tunes.

Sound like bliss? This is exactly what our nervous systems are craving & desperately needing right now!… always right ;) Modern life can be a ball buster!

  • yummy post practice treats (if in studio with us)

Arrive at least 5 - 10 minutes before we start.

MUDGEE SPRING YOGA & WELLBEING RETREAT

2022 Dates:

Thursday 6th - Sunday 9th of October

2 OR 3 NIGHT OPTION AVAILABLE

A little space for you to simply be!

Let's bloom

I cannot tell you how excited I am for this event.

 

For some a retreat is forced rest.

Sometimes we need to do that until rest & relaxation becomes a discipline & a regular part of our lives. But retreats & time out are also fun!

Retreats are a beautiful opportunity to let go of stress, meet new like minded people. To connect deeply to self & reflect on what is & isn't working for you in your day to day life.

So, if you are in need of a deep RESET & nervous system recalibration.

If you've been putting others first & leaving yourself to last.

or simply need to shake up that autopilot system & take some time to REST & RESTORE.

This is for you friend!

This retreat is the perfect little RESET for your nervous system. It may give you just enough space to recalibrate your focus, & your mind & body for the days, weeks & even months ahead. Or until your next retreat!

Ultimately this is your retreat & your experience so choose your own adventure. You can join me in the itinerary that I have planned or you can opt out, chill out or take yourself out. The things I have planned are simply an invitation, nothing is compulsory. 

Our accommodation is a delightful home styled beautifully with all the warm fuzzy vibes & picturesque country landscapes. There are 5 rooms, 6 beds & 3 bathrooms. This is the perfect place to unwind from the stress & tension of life. You'll love it and probably not want to leave... which is why I've made it a 3 night retreat.

We'll be a short drive from to Mudgee town centre, where you can explore all that the village has to offer. This is perfect timing for the Food & Wine festival too! 

Sometimes retreats can feel too peopley so I've kept this one to an intimate size, only 9 guests total, 10 including me. This retreat is best for people coming with a partner or friend, one that you don't mind sharing a bed with. Or you can book a room just for yourself (solo rate). There is only one room with 2 single beds.

This is for you if:

  • You are stressed, anxious & burnt out.

  • You want some time for yourself, to NURTURE & NOURISH your mind, body & soul.

  • Want some space to connect to yourself & do what feels good for you.

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

  • You love the idea of a retreat in the stunning in wine country (I might be biased but I think it is more beautiful than the Hunter Valley!) A road trip is always exciting & the drive out there is actually nice too!

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

WHAT IS INCLUDED in the retreat:

  • Twice daily yoga, meditation & pranayama led by me. Dynamic & energising yoga in the morning & yin/restorative in the afternoon/evening. Suitable for all levels of experience. (Not compulsory)

  • Delicious plant-based meals made by me. *Please note that not all meals included in retreat price - we will be eating out for some meals. This gives you more control over cost & what you eat too* 

  • Group Wine tour of the region!

  • Group bush walk adventure discovering The Drip, a picturesque spot in the Mudgee region with a lot of sacred history & connection to country.

  • OR; weather pending, group DIY self care make & take session or Art making. Maybe both depending on time.

  • You can access Mudgee (The Gee as the locals call it) & beyond if you would like to take yourself out on an adventure into these beautiful towns.

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

I attended Ash's Bliss Night on the weekend & 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 & could just let go of stresses. Totally suitable for 'yogaphobes' as it was incredibly low impact & all about relaxation. I left feeling completely re-centred & was definitely blissed out. I will definitely be attending again. Thanks again Ash! 

Catherine, Senior Performance Manager

BLISS NIGHT TESTIMONIAL

Coming to the end of uni semester, parenting my two school-aged kids, & having worked from home since March (with a heavy workload), it felt like time to treat myself to something focussed just on me. I really loved the peaceful time, free of worry. Also, the guided focus & breathing was a great way to reset & clear my busy mind. The poses were all new to me, so it was really nice to focus on treating my body with kindness – something my office chair doesn’t do!

I’d recommend the Bliss Night to anyone & everyone. Specifically busy people who struggle to focus on themselves.

Thanks Maya

RETREAT TESTIMONIAL

Ashlynn's Autumn retreat was exactly what I needed! A combination of yoga sessions, delicious & nutritious food, quality accommodation & good company made this the perfect Autumn retreat. Cannot wait to join the next retreat!

Madi, Primary School Teacher 

KIDS HOLIDAY YOGA WORKSHOP JULY 2020

We chose Awaken Yoga initially because the Kids School Holiday Workshop itinerary on Facebook looked like decent & 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 & it feels relaxing. Ashlynn is kind & sweet. There is yummy banana bread & 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 & has raved about the fantastic time she had & 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 & 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.
