B L O O M ~ an Expansive Women's Weekend Retreat

*Payment Plan and multiple accomodation types Available, contact Tanya directly info@tanyagillies.com *

A deepening of the 8 tenets of the WHOLE SELF Program: Nourish, Meditate, Aromatherapy, Nervous System Health & Regulation, Create, Sound + Movement, Reflect and Share.

SOUND: The stunningly beautiful, Megan Marie Gates, will be creating a masterful healing sound bath for your body to submerge into. Megan comes from a career in music theatre + dance, the fusion of both creative + yogic practices led her to the healing arts, where she continues to hone + offer her voice as a sound practitioner and movement artist. Both music + movement continue to be driving forces in her life, and she is certain that they are two of the best vehicles for re-enchantment, cellular reset + unification of all things divided.
This world (and all those worlds we cannot see) inspire her everyday in her creations, visioning and dream weaving, and she considers herself forever a student of the cycles of nature, druidry, tantrik philosophy, herbalism, ecstatic dance, sacred songs + sounds, and conscious community building.

MEDITATE: The wonderfully wise, Ashley Tyms, will be guiding you gracefully into the inner realms of yourself through meditation. Grounding, aligning and harmonizing your energy individually and together as a group. You will connect to your intuitive nature; create openings of awareness, curiosity and ease. Ashley is passionate about connecting people to their innate abilities, of trusting and knowing themselves. She's been guiding & healing in her Reiki practice for 10 years and looks forward to the opportunity to share and grow with you in this Retreat.

SOUND + MOVEMENT: The sensual beauty, Jen Kavanaugh, will be guiding you through a magical Goddess Flow™ . No Experience in any form of movement is required to fully benefit from this experience. Goddess Flow is a fusion of yoga, circularized sensual movement and dance created for women. There are seven flows you will move through in class. Each inspired by Seven of the Governing Goddesses of Yoga. Expect to stretch, tone, empower, release, dance and restore your Divine Feminine Body as well as connect to your Soul’s wisdom through meditation, chakra awareness and yin. You have the permission to release emotions, take up space in the room and honour what your body truly needs on any given day. You will be celebrated for your wise, courageous and sensual feminine body. These Flows can awaken your SoulBody’s Wisdom, which over time will lead you to uncover YOUR Goddess Essence, both in class and in your life.

CREATE: The incredibly talented Artist, Francine Dossor, will be guiding you through a magnificent creative journey. Francine has been using the power of tapping into a creative FLOW (which is accessible to us all) her entire life and especially through her own healing journey. She will help guide you to tap into your own personal creative flow, and guide you through a creative RELEASE through your painting.

MEDITATE: The magnificently brilliant Miranda Sophia, will be guiding you through a Yoga Nidra practice. Yoga Nidra is accessible to anyone. It is a guided meditation that is done laying on your back, supported and cozied up with pillows and blankets. Yoga Nidra means “sleep yoga”, however this is a practice of awakening. You will be guided through the 4 layers of your body (the koshas) – physical, subtle, mental/emotional, intuitive – and into a state of deep rest. In this state of deep rest, with practice, your body will fall asleep while your mind remains alert. When the body is asleep, it allows us access to the subconscious mind, which is where all of our unconscious (meaning what we don’t know) stories, programs and beliefs are held. These are the programs that have been collected and stored from the moment of the spark of inception, those that drive how we view and experience the world and then therefore create our world.

NERVOUS SYSTEM HEALTH & REGULATION: To put it simply… the nervous system governs EVERYTHING. An out-of-whack nervous system is the reason for problems like chronic fatigue, chronic pain, digestive troubles, depression, anxiety, and panic attacks. (That’s the short list.) Did you know that trauma and stress gets trapped in the body? It’s nothing short of fascinating learning about how our bodies respond to stress and tools to help support our nervous system.

AROMATHERAPY: You will be intuitively formulating an essential oil blend to enhance your B L O O M-ing experience. This will include an educational segment on how Essential Oils affect our nervous system and limbic system of our brain.

REFLECT: Ample time will be dedicated to taking quiet space for you to reflect and process the new information and material learned. You are invited to take in the powerful Nature Medicine that will surrounded you on Tanya's Homestead.

SHARE: Each day you will be offered time to share in circle. This is always optional and you will be given full permission to take care of your needs.

NOURISH: You will be provided with healthy snacks, Spring Water, Organic Coffee, Variety of Teas and Hearty & Healthy Breakfast, Lunch & Dinners.
