Years 9-12
Retreat Day

Step away from the computer screen, socials/gaming and step into nature.

This one-day retreat will have your students feeling fresh and brand new. Returning back to school with clearer minds + breathing techniques to feel calm + focused.

Are your students coming to school stressed, anxious, overwhelmed + disconnected?  Spending a day on a Yoga Hike will see your students go from wilted to fire. A day of transformation, individual journey's that will be reflected back in the classroom.

Specifically designed for young adult students who are trying  to navigate their way through this ever-changing world. This program is supporting students wellbeing incorporating physical, social, emotional, mental + spiritual dimensions inclusive biological, sociocultural + environmental factors. (Victorian Curriculum)
My goal is to reel the students in to a point of knowing + understanding that moving in nature creates unconditional benefits to their health, study, work, friendships + their wellbeing.
Imagine your students actually enjoying being off their socials + feeling amazing!
