What We Offer

We know that it’s not a one size fits all when it comes to looking after ourselves and that we can benefit from different ways of looking after our wellbeing at different times in our lives, we aim to offer a wide range of wellbeing practices.

We have our core staples, that are on offer more often than not, explained below. One of the things we love about The Wee Retreat is receiving a request from a teacher wishing to bring a new modality to the mix so keep an eye on our website and social media as there are always new offerings popping up!

Mindfulness Meditation

Mindfulness is about being present in our everyday lives, noticing what is happening around us. The chance to sit and be in the present moment. A mindfulness meditation practise will enable you to move away from the habit of getting lost in busy days, consumed by a to-do and should do list, lost in the tangle of thoughts in your head and missing out on what is happening around you.
The more that we pause and bring ourselves back to the present moment, the more we benefit. The less time we spend worrying or running around like crazy or listening to every single thought in our head, we can begin to see more joy around us in the little and the big things.

Yoga

An ancient and comprehensive system of self-improvement, self-knowledge and better health. While there are many different schools and traditions of yoga the focus of most is on bringing together mind, body and breath.
In the Western world and for our purposes the term yoga is used to describe a system of posture-based physical movements and relaxation techniques.

Pilates

A system of controlled movements to strengthen the core muscles from pubic bone to breastbone and all around the buttocks lengthening, strengthening, and stretching tight areas and opening the body up.

Pilates exercises can be modified from beginner to advanced and intensity can be increased as the body adapts to these exercises.

Qigong

Qigong is a moving meditation practice, coordinating slow flowing movement, deep breathing, and a calm mental state.

Originating in China and with roots in Chinese medicine, philosophy and martial arts, qigong is traditionally viewed as system to cultivate and balance qi, translated as life energy.

Martial Arts

A broad term covering a variety of schools and forms of the arts of war, single combat, and self-defence. With long lasting and established links between these schools and mental development. Helping you to build your physical and mental health.

Sound Healing

Using music or sound to bring you into a meditative state where you look in and experience how you are feeling in the moment. Sound healing can also help shift emotions and energies within you.

Lie down, get comfortable and create yourself a safe space. Experience how the sounds feel within your body. You might experience deep emotion, a journey, a tingling sensation, or a deep sense of peace.

Seasonal Writing

Self-discovery writing workshops to help you explore how to incorporate the seasons into your daily life. Writing and journalling is a powerful way to learn about yourself and these workshops can offer many of the benefits of self-reflective writing.

We host six writing workshops over the course of a calendar year, one for each season and one for each transitional season in early and late summer. Exploring what happens in each season from a western and eastern philosophical point of view. With an opportunity to reflect on and write about your own needs in each season.

Family Constellations

A therapeutic approach where the whole picture of the individual as part of a larger set of systems is considered, differing from traditional therapies where the focus is mainly on the client. Designed to reveal the hidden dynamics in a family or relationship and to address and heal the stressors impacting these relationships.
