Day 1: Saturday, Nov 27th, 2021 – Mindfulness & Gut Health 

Nature & Hiking:

One of the simplest gifts we can give ourselves is to spend time in nature. We start our day with morning tea on the beautiful Lapito House deck, followed by a walk through the picturesque postcard-worthy rolling hills of Lapito. There are options here, such as for those carrying an injury, or who are pregnant.

Mindfulness Workshop: 

Rosie will take us through a workshop to help navigate high stress and high expectation environments, where we will learn the benefits of this mindfulness, and how to bring it into our daily routines

Nutrition Workshop: Gut Health 

Lara will delve into the topic of gut health, covering several fascinating aspects including the gut-brain connection, and how we can best nurture our gut health (and overall health) through food.

Yoga:

What better way to bring this all together, than to be led through a yoga flow in these beautiful surroundings. Yes please.

Nourishment:

We will enjoy morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea carefully crafted and prepared by Lara and an award-winning Chef. Tea, coffee and cold refreshments will be available throughout the day. The delicious, nourishing menu is worth the drive in itself.

 

Day 2: Sunday, Nov 28th, 2021 – Journaling & Nurturing your mental health 

Nature & Hiking:

We start our day with a stunning hike along Wild Dog creek, and onto the Heysen trail to a waterfall, stopping to enjoy morning tea before returning to the house taking in the views of the rolling hills. We may even spot Albert or Annie (Lapito’s resident echidnas). It takes ~1.5hrs, there are some hills, so it’s good for getting the heart rate up a little, but is by no means difficult. There are options here, such as for those carrying an injury, or who are pregnant.

Journaling Workshop :

Rosie will take us through a journaling workshop, guiding us through the benefits and ‘how to’ of self-directed journaling. Lapito House provides the perfect backdrop of peace and quiet for this time to self-reflect and reset.

Nutrition Workshop: Nurturing Your Mental Health

Food can have a significant impact on the way we feel mentally and emotionally and therefore how well we function from day to day. Lara will be covering nutrition for brain health and provide tips on how to eat to best support your mental health.

Yoga:

We bring the day together, with a yoga flow looking out to the rolling hills of Lapito.

Nourishment:

We will enjoy morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea carefully crafted and prepared by Lara and an award-winning Chef. Tea, coffee and cold refreshments will be available throughout the day. The delicious, nourishing menu is worth the drive in itself.
