A Summer Online Wellness Retreat
Seasonal Practices for Grounding, Opening Your Heart, and Embodying Love in the World
August 6th – 9th, 2020
About the Course
In nature, summer is a time of abundance, when things come to maturity, and life is in full bloom.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, and with long standing equity and social justice issues in the forefront, we’re all being called to adapt, expand, transform and engage our human creativity in a time of uncertainty. To truly open our hearts, and embrace transformation, we often need to start by cultivating our own inner resources, in order to stay grounded, centred and deeply connected to what keeps us whole.
With that in mind, I offer the following online practices to support you to cultivate a felt sense of stability, embodied resilience and deep connection to your heart wisdom. My intention is to offer a solid foundation for collective practice, that supports clarity, gratitude and our ability to take skillful action in the world.
Learn seasonal practices and techniques that celebrate your body’s innate intelligence, and the significance of being in alignment with nature.
This program will support you to :
Connect to your body and trust its innate wisdom
Cultivate a felt sense of stability, and rhythm in your daily life
Nourish your physical heart, and support circulation & digestion
Practice the foundations of embodied mindfulness & self-compassion
Clarify your intentions, and actions for embodying love in the world

I have just completed the Fall Yoga Immersion at The Haven with Kelly and it was the most wonderful experience. I went seeking to explore a deeper path into my body and to living from my heart and this program came at the right time in the right place and with the most wonderful people. The content of this course is impressive. The work was so comprehensive not only encompassing mind body and soul but enabling us to leave at the end with hugely practical and achievable ideas and inspiration for daily practises aligning ourselves to our most truest self and intention and connecting both inner and outer worlds. Kelly is an intuitive and superb teacher, guide and support with a wealth and depth of knowledge and I felt truly held throughout. A beautiful experience I can most highly recommend."
