I don't care whether you work full time, part time or are a stay at home mum.
I don't care how old you are, how rich you are, how spiritual you are.
I *do* care about you though. Your mental health. Your emotional wellbeing. Your essence that makes you more than "Mummy".
You find me any mother of young children, and I'll show you a woman who sometimes forgets she even has a name.
We spend so much time attending to our childrens needs that we forget to look after our own.
This weekend myself and some lovely fellow therapists and practitioners ran two retreat days, especially for stressed out mums. The days were full of yoga, relaxation, holistic treatments, yummy food and much needed child free time. Our mission was to deliver a day of de-stressing and unwinding, in a friendly, welcoming environment suitable for everyone.
Heres what some of our attendees had to say about the experience....
"Mind, body and soul restored today and I left feeling like I could take on the world. Unable to get down from the fluffy white cloud of pure, self centred, self loving and self soothing joy, best day and so needed."
"A wonderful recharge, put together by an amazing group of women with the best yoga and quiche in the world."
"Today was simply wonderful, a very much needed chance to unwind, relax, recharge and have fun, with beautiful mama company, in gorgeous surroundings. Cant wait till the next one!"
"Great company and blissful pampering and relaxation. Thank you!"
"A big thank you to you all for a perfect much needed relaxing day with great company. At the start of the day all my muscles were very tight after a busy stressful week but now I feel amazing very calm and no aching muscles very relaxed and ready to start the week with a clear mind thanks again looking forward to the next one."
