You'll finally take that time out you really need, and spend some creative time thinking about you for a change.
We'll treat our bodies well with some energising nurturing yoga, and eat delicious healthy soup as well as some treats...
It's soul nurturing for mamas...
It's time for us.
It's time out. To breathe. To stretch. To make. To be heard.
You'll leave feeling supported, inspired, and ready to face whatever comes your way when you venture back into the big bold exhausting world of motherhood...!
But don't just take our word for it, here's some feedback from our recent Sunday Morning Mamas' Retreat attendees:
"I loved how genuinely happy everyone was to be there, the quiet, yoga without a baby crawling on or underneath me, the food, being listened to and heard for 5 minutes was amazing!"
"It is rare, very rare, as a mum to find time for oneself, to give yourself the time and space, and permission, to open up, be honest and allow some magic to happen. The mama's retreats led by Pippa and Leif provide a nurturing, safe, fun and creative environment for real magic and healing to happen and for you to reconnect with you."
"The Mamas Retreat was an escape from motherhood for a couple of hours - a chance to reflect on the joy it brings, and a chance to give myself the space I needed to be myself. To acknowledge that when times are tough as a mum you are not alone."
"I left feeling rewarded with a relaxed state of mind and joyful, with the pleasurable experience of new friendships."
"It's so easy to say we don't have time to do relaxing things but it's more about prioritising some time for yourself without feeling guilty, and you will most definitely feel the benefits from a morning at the retreat."
"The mamas' retreat gave me a chance to connect with other mums, share hopes and fears and feel much more positive about taking care of myself and my family. I have found it hard to meet people since moving to the area and the mamas' retreat was one of the most welcoming and supportive groups I've been to."
"A friendly, creative space to have a good stretch, relax and share thoughts and ideas with other like-minded women."
"Loved sharing stories, and having time and respected space to say whatever is on your mind. I love that it is a place for creativity - encourages blooming!"
"The relaxation of the yoga enabled me to relax into the whole experience and to engage with my inner thoughts and feelings more readily."
"A chance to relax, reflect and breathe away from the stress of juggling a busy job with a long commute and my family (and the guilt that as a consequence I'm a bit rubbish at both!)"
"It's very easy to feel you belong at a mamas retreat. They're very reflective experiences, sometimes emotional but always with humour and thoughtfulness."
"I found the experience very profound actually, it exceeded my expectations. I think any mum needs to do this to re energise her mind, her body and her soul. We deserve it!"
"Very chilled out, safe and welcoming atmosphere. Perfectly planned, so ran very smoothly. Great mix of TLC for mind, body and soul. Also awesome food!!
"It made me realise that I'm doing ok considering all that had actually occurred during the year. Also pure, uninterrupted yoga - such a joy and a real treat. I felt a million dollars afterwards!"
We'd love to see you there!
Tell me more!
No special skills or equipment required. You don’t need to be ‘creative’, or to have done yoga before. We'll provide the yoga mats, creative stimulation and the relaxation. You just need to bring yourself.
We have a different theme and focus each retreat, and you're welcome to join us as often as you like.
How many mamas will be there? Places are limited, so it won’t be a scarily big group – just a lovely comminity of mamas coming together to nurture ourselves and support each other.
We have some mums who come to almost every retreat, and others who come just once. Either is fine with us - it's always a warm and welcoming crowd, so don't be frightened of your first time.
Where? At Leif’s studio, Garbo House, Bread Street, Penzance
What about food? We’ll provide tea, treats, and lunch (including a delicious soup from the brilliant Kate Binnie)! Let us know as soon as possible if you have any special dietary requirements when you book your ticket, and we’ll do our best to meet your needs!
When? 9.30 – 1.30, Sunday 22 March 2015
How much does it cost? £25 plus £4.50 for lunch (total: £29.50)
NOTE: If you'd really like to come, but can't afford it, please do get in touch - we want as many mums as possible to have this experience and will do our best to make it happen at a price you can afford.
