About The Event
Rolling Hills Retreat provides the perfect space for relaxing, rejuvenating and unwinding. You can get involved with as much or as little of the proposed programs as you like.
Perfect for people who have never been on a retreat before.
We are a humble home-stay style of retreat, not a luxury resort - we aim to provide comfort, relaxation and a well-planned itinerary based on psychology, research-based evidence and a dash of spirituality at an affordable price. Chris, the main host & owner, is trained, experienced & accredited in psychology/psychotherapy/mental health/group therapy/yoga/meditation/education and food safety.
Opportunities for self-development, personal growth, gaining insight and letting go can also occur for those who are looking for that. Themed workshops will be offered throughout the retreat as well as free time to relax or explore the area.
We are a small boutique retreat - 11 guests maximum but usually less as some people opt for sole occupancy of rooms.
Twice daily yoga (hatha, vinyasa flow, gentle and yin/restorative).
Meditations and wellness workshops offered throughout the day as well as walks, creative sessions, fire pit ceremonies, spiritual movies, etc. (schedule varies for each retreat and is tailored to the group via a pre-retreat questionnaire - see below for an example of the schdule).
Healthy and tasty vegatarian/gluten-free/dairy-free home-cooked food provided for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Group fitness classes offered on some retreats to those who wish to participate (or simply relax by the pool instead - the choice is yours - no judgement here at Rolling Hills Retreat).
Pre-booked massages from other trained professionals.
