Self-Love Retreat

Invoking the Warrior Woman

25th to 26th May 2019

Sunday Workshops 26th may

Nadine Warbrick
The Sacred Flow

7:00am - 8:00am Kindilan Hall

This workshop will physically and emotionally clear space and prepare you to invoke your own power, courage, strength, and voice for the day, with a gentle meditation, yoga flow, intention setting, deep breathing, and beautiful circle chanting.

Nadine Warbrick – yoga teacher of The Sacred Flow movement, Nature’s Flow – grew up with spiritual guidance from both of her grandfathers. One was Maori with a strong intuitive sense, receptive to guidance from ancestors. The other grandfather was a student in the Course of Miracles who taught Nadine how to use crystals, essential oils, meditation, and alternative movement and healing modalities. Nadine ‘found’ yoga when that grandfather took her to my first yoga course in 2007. Since then, she have dedicated my life to serving others so they can find the same peace and strength in movement, meditation, and breath as she had received. 

Nadine strongly aligns with the principles of Red Tent Australia – community, empowering women in strength, courage, power, and voice! In her sessions, she encourage free movement (intuitive movement) and emphasises the power of the breath (Spiritus = Breath!), our direct connection with Source/Goddess.

SUNRISE EMPOWERING GODDESS MOVEMENT + BREATH: We start with a gentle meditation connecting to our womb space and Source, Earth Mother. We invoke our own intention or Sankalpa for the day to honour the power of intention and emotion.

We will then gradually come into gentle yoga movement designed for all body types through facilitated Free Movement. This is to get the creative sacral chakra juices flowing through our system, spreading up to our heart. When we are warm, we have the freedom to move how we wish and flow with a guided yoga vinyasa ‘flow’ (postures aligning with empowering the feminine).

Towards the end, lying down to re-connect back into ourselves with a gentle breath session, ending by bringing the ‘circle’ together, facing each other to chant ‘AUM’ to open up our voice (throat chakra) for the day.

Wise Body is where you’ll learn a gentle healing movement practice that will calm your nervous system, tone your muscles, and put a smile on your face. This class based on the Nia Technique, a gentle movement routine combining dance, yoga, and martial arts, combining simple choreography with uplifting music for an experience that enriches body and mind. You will get physical conditioning as well as calming and coordination of your nervous system.

Mags Sheridan is a Blue Belt in the Nia Technique, a certified instructor for Moving to Heal classes, and has trained as a Red Tent facilitator

The type of Nia Mags teaches is called Moving to Heal, which uses simple movements repeated often so that students can easily follow along and experience the joy of moving in unison to music that evokes goddess imagery, connection to the earth, and unity among women, as well as encouraging playfulness and fun. The class is mostly done individually and also includes some optional interactions between participants (not partner dancing). Traditionally it is done barefoot and can be done indoors or outdoors.
