One Day Women’s Retreat
Sunday 22nd October


Gather with Joining Hands, in collaboration with our ambassadors, for a One Day Women’s Retreat to REIGNITE! Invigorate your mind and body, imagine and be inspired.

Join us on Sunday October 22 at Vulcana Women’s Circus Stores Studio in the Brisbane Powerhouse Precinct at New Farm. Vulcana describe their space as ‘home of the bold, daring and courageous’, so it’s the perfect place for our Reignite Retreat! At this retreat you’ll move your body, get creative, imagine, play, learn, eat and spend a day with awesome women.

Over the past five years, Joining Hands has proven itself as a premier wellbeing company, delivering exceptional health and wellness services to thousands of people looking to revitalise their lives. And remember, this retreat is supporting the wellbeing of homeless young women. For every woman who joins us for our retreat, one homeless young woman can access a one-day wellbeing retreat of her own.

The day’s retreat will flow as follows…

Arrive at 8:45am, register and settle in. The retreat will begin with an opening circle to meet the women you’ll spend the day with and create your intention for the day.

Start with some uplifting and refreshing yoga with Mel Archer, The Gentle Woman. Mel will invite you to connect with your mind, body and spirit in this class. Ignite your inner spark through gentle movement and the exploration of traditional yoga forms, breath-work and mindfulness techniques. This will be a beautiful flowing class, suitable for all levels.

After morning tea, there are three creative maker sessions where you can unleash your creativity! Choose between creating a black and white piece of art work to take home, a unique necklace made from recycled and upcycled materials or some low-tox beauty products.

Lunch is from Little Delish in collaboration with The Grounded Way so you’re guaranteed delicious food made with love!

Following lunch, settle in for a self-love workshop lead by Nicole Mathieson. Explore the importance of self-love in all relationships. Nicole will share her two big revelations from seven years as a therapist into our biggest human wound and how the ego can lead you astray. Then you’ll learn the life changing tools and have a deep personal experience of truly loving yourselves from within so that you can thrive in love and life!

Your last session will be with Nia Black Belt teacher and Trainer Sophie Marsh for an inspiring hour of music, movement and mindfulness that will light you from the inside out. Sophie will infuse powerful, expressive and healing movement with sensation, visualisation, breath and sounding to reignite your unique spirit and celebrate our connectedness

The retreat will come together with a closing cirle, an opportunity to reflect, share, learn from each other and celebrate.
