Calm Retreat Sandhill House

Calm Retreat At Sandhill House

The calm retreat is an opportunity for you to relax fully, to rest and restore your energy.
Your time and energy are precious but taking time out for yourself creates space for you to reset; to come back to center and connect with an inner sense of strength, presence, and calm.

As you deepen your connection to nature, you deepen your connection to yourself, restoring your sense of inner trust and strength.

The Calm Retreat experience with Lucille will take you on a journey from stress and tension to balance, ease, and flow. To connect with the wisdom of your body and move towards a greater sense of health and wellbeing.

Take some time just for you to rest, reset and restore, to relieve stress, calm your body, to come back to centre; to feel centred and strong.

The weekend will be carefully curated to include a beautiful blend of:

  • Movement practices (Pilates, Yoga, Intuitive Movement),
  • Stillness and Meditation
  • Journalling
  • Being in nature
  • Forest Bathing Experience
  • Fire Ritual
  • Time in our hot tub and relaxation area
  • Nourishing food

Come back home to feeling more like yourself again as you move your body in an intuitive way and rest into stillness.

Arrive at Sandhill House and leave all your responsibilities at the door. Be nourished with gorgeous food while you rest and restore in our wellness area. Give yourself the gift of time to listen to your body and honour what it needs in each moment.

Lucille will create a nurturing space where you can disconnect from the stresses of everyday life and gently reclaim your own natural flow of energy, to connect more deeply with your inner wisdom and intuition.

Learn how to balance and integrate your energy to feel energised and vibrant, relaxed and restored.

There will be opportunities to experience the restorative power of Being in nature while also having the precious gift of time to do absolutely nothing!

Be nurtured and inspired as you connect with other like-minded souls or embrace the opportunity for silence and time alone.

Lucille will create a beautiful, safe and sacred space for you to receive the nourishment that you so deeply desire; Body, Mind, Heart and Soul.
