Embracing Change -A nourishing postnatal retreat

  • The Well Garden Hackney Downs Studios, 17 Amhurst Terrace, Hackney E8 2BT (map)

Join the Born Together team at The Well Garden for an afternoon's retreat honouring and celebrating your journey into becoming parents or extending your family.

Having a baby can be overwhelming, especially in the first several months. Sharing the joys and challenges of motherhood with other mums can make a huge difference as you transition into this role.

Beginning with a sharing circle guided by psychotherapist Caitlyn, and hypnotherapist Katrina to explore the changes you've been through, and embrace this new chapter in life. Release tension and re- energise with a gentle postnatal yoga with Yolande, followed by a taster of the deeply relaxing Cerrada [closing the bones] ceremony.with Yolande and Sue (This is a South American ceremony using rebozo shawls which helps to close the body, physically and emotionally after birth.)

This time we are opening the retreat up to partners too, there will be a baby yoga session for partners and babies run by the wonderful Karen James, followed by a sharing circle for partners while the mums have their postnatal yoga session. Then everyone will come together for the hypno-gong meditation, a deeply restorative session combining the power of hypnosis and a gong sound bath. With delicious snacks and a closing circle to finish you will leave feeling nourished, grounded and refreshed.

You’ll also receive a goodie bag to take home including a bespoke homeopathic remedy from our homeopath Grazia.Gatti and healing herbs for bathing or steaming for mothers.
