Your journey to self discovery with Elysia Wellness Retreat.




Monday 19 April: Your Body’s Communication

How do you first recognise when you are stressed?

  • How does this show up in your body?
  • Where does your body hold chronic stress?
  • When physically stressed, what do you notice about your emotional state?
  • How do you return your body to balance?

On the first day we will utilise various techniques to become aware of your body and how it communicates with you.

Experience a safe environment, to explore your body tensions and corresponding emotional patterns.

We will be discussing:

  • How habitual attitudes show up in your behaviours and tension in the body
  • How disowned emotions have a mind of their own, and by failing to understand these emotions, you lose connection with that part of yourself
  • Change your personal boundaries
  • Building new skills and coping mechanisms.

Tuesday 20 April: Body Mapping

On day 2 we will explore the chakras (your body’s energy centres) and their meaning. We will dive deeper into the emotional component of your body’s tensions, injuries and accidents and map these on a Body Map.

Wednesday 21 April: Release Techniques

You will be invited to consider what emotional patterns are no longer serving you so it can be released from your body.

Tools will be offered to assist in lasting change to empower and build inner strength.

What to wear

Comfortable clothing, allowing movement.
