Join us for a transformative three nights of retreat and nourishment this February 2018.
Psychotherapist Michele Perkins and Yoga Therapist Aimee Stapleford have united their passion for wellbeing by collaborating to bring you a deeply relaxing and informative retreat. A bespoke weekend designed to enhance your knowledge and understanding and to optimise your psychological health and physical wellbeing.
Our wellbeing sessions will include insights into retraining the mind and to give you a greater understanding of why you might become stressed or anxious. Emotions that we experience in our bodies and in our minds at times can be difficult and unpleasant and we will look at ways of dealing with these through various, easy to absorb techniques.
You will learn how to start to develop the Compassionate/Soothing System , this system is clinically proven to help our psychological Well-Being. We will do this by using some breathing, mindfulness and imagery techniques to regulate our emotions in a helpful and calming way thus restoring our balance.
Think of it as “Physiotherapy for the mind”
You will be part of a small, friendly group exploring health to the back drop of Lime House Yoga’s relaxing and welcoming environment.

Emma cheers for the absolutely scrumptious food, I’ve enjoyed every bite! Jock, thanks for the awesome adjustments and general teachings, you’re both complete stars. I will certainly be back!
I honestly don’t think we could have asked for more from a retreat and I am inexpressibly grateful to all three of you.
Your open-heartedness and the safe space you all created through everything from Emma’s first emails to the food, the accommodation the loan of the library and of course the teaching, gave the most amazing opportunity to deepen our practice.
