Join our next Sunday Morning Mamas' Retreat on 21 May and spend some precious mama me-time letting go of the guilt, being reassured that you're not alone, and reconnecting with what you most need to feel resilient and positive.
Read on to find out more!
We'll do some gentle yoga, chat to each other, and do a simple creative activity.
We'll eat heart-warming soup and share tasty treats. Most of all, we'll be inspired by a group of supportive exhausted but amazing mamas.
It's just four hours, but it can feel like a lifetime - and a lifeline. You'll return to those you love happier, calmer, and ready to make everyone's lives brighter.
If you've never joined us before, that decision to buy yourself a ticket might feel a little scary at first. But jump on in.
This is time created for you - and you can choose what you'd like to do. As much or as little as you like.
So if you don't want to try a yoga stretch, or get creative, or talk, you don't have to.
If you truly want to spend the whole morning dozing on the sofa in the corner, enjoying the sea view from the balcony, you're more than welcome to do exactly that.
This is about making time for you to do whatever feels good in the moment. Because you deserve and need it.
If you're still feeling nervous, just drop Pippa an email and we'll make sure you always have a friendly face on hand if you need it.
And be reassured that there's something about the energy of our Mamas' Retreats that is very special - these mornings always attract a group of warm brave thoughtful kind women.
There is always laughter, and honesty, and a sense that we are here to support each other - with whatever we want to share, or not share.
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.
"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!)"
"The Mamas Retreat was an escape from motherhood for a couple of hours - To acknowledge that when times are tough as a mum you are not alone."
"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."
