We’ve enjoyed eight fully-booked weekends so far within the sumptuous surroundings of Creacon Wellness Retreat and with a number of guests returning again and again!
Everyone is welcome and no experience is required to enjoy and benefit from mindful meditation and movement – Tai Chi, Chi Kung and mindful walking – all inspired by the stunning, luxurious and tranquil surroundings of Creacon Wellness Retreat. Be kind to your body and mind with these flowing and gentle – yet also invigorating and strengthening – movements which are suitable for all ages, shapes and sizes! And if you’re new to meditation, rest assured that each session will be relaxed and guided. We’ll also be exploring the theme of “Loving Kindness” and techniques including meditations, self-Indian Head massage and nourishing Singing Bowl “Sound Bath” sessions. I can’t wait!!
In between classes there will be plenty of time to relax in one of Creacon’s cosy lounges or the cafe.
