Energise and Detoxify for Mind & Body Workshop

“Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon.”

Who wouldn’t like to feel more alive, awake, inspired, intelligent and peaceful? Today, over 120,000 registered synthetic chemicals are in our environment at varying concentrations. We imbibe chemicals daily, with every breath, every meal and drink. In addition, our busy lives often get in the way of making healthy food choices so we lack the nutrients we need for optimal functioning. Our Detox workshop helps you attain great energy levels, healthy repair and replacement of cells to get you thinking clearly and feeling amazing. Learn how to incorporate ‘food as medicine’ to get your organs primed and detoxifying optimally along with yoga techniques to cleanse the mind, body and spirit.

Meditation Workshop

The benefits of taking the time to relax through meditation also include feeling refreshed, clear, and positive – and ready to apply passion to work and interests!

Mindfulness Workshop

Mindfulness is a highly effective way to improve performance and wellbeing in the modern working environment. In a world where our attention is constantly being bombarded and we endlessly multi task, the need for maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment has never been more relevant or important. Our mindfulness workshop aims to build concentration, boost productivity and support healthy minds.  We incorporate simple techniques and practices to help calm and focus a busy mind. 

African Drumming

African Drumming breaks down social barriers in order to allow participants to work efficiently and harmoniously together, with increased focus and reduced stress.

Our workshop includes yoga, relaxation, breathing exercises and nutritional information to get you sleeping soundly through the night. Experience how deep relaxation truly feels.

Why Quit Sugar

In this nutrition workshop our Nutrition Guru, Lindy Cook,  guides you through the ins and outs of our modern sugar dilemma. Why we are eating so much of it, how it is having such a devastating effect on our health and simple ways to avoid it. Lindy also runs through all the latest ‘healthy’ sugar alternatives available now, their pros and cons and how they can be used in cooking. Every session ends with a taste testing one of our, nutritionist approved, sweet treats.

Bite Size Yoga & Nutrition Workshop

Focus on being productive instead of busy.

Does life feel so busy you can’t possibly find the time to do those added extras; exercise, cook fresh healthy meals or simply breathe and find some peaceful time out? For most of us, feeling ‘time poor’ has just become a normal part of life. Our workshop gives you tasty ‘bite’ size morsels of yoga, relaxation techniques and nutrition tips that fit snugly into your busy day. We teach you how to feed your mind, replenish body and revitalise your soul with simple strategies that can be easily incorporated into your daily routine.

Stress Management

The essentials for optimising work-life balance are covered, with practical advice to inform and encourage your team to make healthy choices to reduce and manage stress. Your team will learn about the psychology of self-care, not just for themselves, for each other.

Fatigue Workshop

How often do we hear the complaint “I’m tired”. Fatigue is an incredibly common issue and it can take a very real toll on our enjoyment of life and productivity in the workplace. Our fatigue workshop addresses the possible nutritional causes of fatigue, including dietary deficiencies and excesses and how making some simple changes can leave more energized, vital and productive.  We also look beyond diet, exploring the idea that having meaning and purpose in our lives is the most important thing we can do for our health and vitality, the importance of rest, and how joy is a crucial part of wellness. How we nourish ourselves, our emotional wellbeing and our stress response play a huge part in our energy levels.

Nutrition for Life Workshop

Just what are the best foods to eat to optimize your health and wellbeing? Keeping up with latest nutrition research isn’t easy but this workshop will get you up to speed. Our qualified Nutritionist discusses how to keep your blood sugar levels balanced, the low down on sugar, good fats and bad fats and a rundown on all the latest ‘superfoods’. Every session ends with a taste testing of one of our, nutritionist approved, sweet treats.

Men's Health Workshop

We all know most men would rather sit down and discuss the footy scores any day than discuss the state of their health. Research tell us that women seek are far more likely to actively take care of their general wellbeing while for men, health and diet often take a back seat to their busy lives. Consequently their health and energy suffers. We discuss the top 5 health issues facing men – heart disease, diabetes type 2, depression, obesity and prostate cancer – and how simple yoga techniques, dietary and lifestyle changes can both prevent and treat them.

Positive Psychology Workshop

“The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts”

State of the art research into well-being reveals that happiness can actually be increased and that doing so has measurable impact on health, productivity and well-being. We integrate these exciting new findings with yoga, relaxation and nutrition to expand your happiness footprint and increase your happiness quota.

Laughter Workshop

Laughter exercises are combined with relaxing, breath and mind focused gentle exercise creating a playful and light-hearted group activity. A good laugh with workmates creates a dynamic, interactive and happy team. Having fun and play together is one of the greatest ways to create connection.

If Laughter cannot solve your problems, it will definitely DISSOLVE your problems; so that you can think clearly what to do about them  – Dr. Madan Kataria, founder Yoga Laughter Movement, Mumbai.

Tai Chi and Qigong

Tai Chi and Qigong slow flowing meditative movements are designed to promote a balanced body and mind. This centuries-old Chinese mind-body exercise provides a simple and practical wellness regime, no special equipment or clothing requirements. And, according to Harvard Health, although tai chi is slow and gentle and doesn’t leave you breathless, it addresses the key components of fitness — muscle strength, flexibility, balance, and, to a lesser degree, aerobic conditioning.

Personal Sustainability Workshop

Are you walking through life unconsciously or with eyes wide open? 

What are the downstream implications of your actions? Personal sustainability is the ability to live fully in the present without compromising the future. This applies to the environment as well as your own personal habits. It involves cultivating a practice of mindfulness in your everyday living. We give you the tools to uncover and minimize your individual ‘footprint’, while maximizing your own health and sense of joy. Our workshop encourages participants to implement their own personal sustainability plan, opening up new ways of thinking and discovering what truly sustains them. We offer insights into how to lead a more fulfilling and sustainable life.

School Programs

Our well-being program for schools is a fun and active session, packed with practical advice to inform and encourage healthy choices for children and adults alike.

Why nutrition? Because the research shows students learn better when they’re well nourished. Healthy eating has been linked to higher grades, better memory and focus, faster information processing and improved health as well as improved attendance rates.

Why mindfulness meditation? Studies have shown that students trained in mindfulness meditation experienced improvement in working memory and gained an effective and efficient technique for improving cognitive function overall.

Why Yoga? The ancient practice of yoga offers a multitude of benefits to modern-day students at every grade level. Yoga’s combination of breath and movement can help alleviate social and academic stress. With more than 20 million practitioners, yoga is making its way into schools with plenty of potentially positive outcomes.

Hi Lindy, I just wanted to thank you for joining us today and sharing your knowledge. The children and staff were all so engaged and impressed and went away with a new understanding of ‘ food and us’ – it was perfect and I have received lots of positive comments – thank you!

Susan, Murrumbeena Primary

“In a world where our lives are often too busy to stop, reflect and even truly participate we aim to reconnect your staff with their inner selves, the food they eat, the world around them, so they may find the peace, resilience and happiness they need to shine.”
