VENUE: Melody Hill Retreat Centre, Magaliesburg

A Wholesome 2 night winter weekend filled with wellness, self-care and spaciousness

Release tension to invite in relaxation.
Release fear to yield courage
Release resistance so you can flow around the mountains in your way.
Release indecision so you can cultivate more certainty.
Release busyness to encourage healing.

Winter offers us an opportunity to withdraw and cocoon into quiet spaces, spaces for reflection, tranquillity, and restoration.

Nurture yourself and feel held by the beautiful natural surroundings as your facilitators Sophia and Natalie welcome you to join them on their Nurturing Winter Wellness Retreat, a nourishing winter weekend getaway at the beautiful Melody Hill Retreat Centre in Magaliesburg (located just 75 mins out of Johannesburg).

Come and fill your wellness cup with offerings that recharge and revitalize your mind, body and spirit. Immerse yourself in this transformational experience where you will uncover different layers of your inner world through the power of conscious breathwork journeys, guided meditations, daily yoga classes and a heart-opening, soul-expanding cacao and play ceremony. Use your free time to curl up by the fireplace, to relax in the beautiful surroundings, receive a luxurious kahuna massage or form meaningful connections with like-minded individuals.  

This weekend is an invitation to gift yourself with some well-deserved nurturing.
