A combination of art therapy (with Melanie Bayoud of Embee Designs and yoga. This far surpassed mine and Melanie’s expectations. What a wonderfully diverse group of people from all over the world came together for a 5 night/6 day retreat incorporating yoga for all and several different art workshops encouraging the individual to unleash hidden or trapped creativity and to find the artist within. Melanie, wonderfully creative and inspiring, encouraged the best from our guests and delivered workshops such as ‘Thinking with Ink’, macrame, a canvas workshop using the entire body as your paintbrush and art journaling. Beginning the day with a gentle yoga flow and ending it with a yoga nidra or meditation practise was the perfect balance to the creative workshops.
Due to its popularity there will be another two Hands Heart Head Retreats in 2018, a continuing journey for those to explore further and a repeat of this years popular introductory retreat.
