What’s involved?

The first half of the retreat, aims to provide parents with self-regulation skills to consider ways to focus on their own wellbeing using practical tools like yoga, meditation and breathing techniques as a way to achieve a sense of calm and renewal. 

The second half of the retreat, aims to provide parents with co-regulation skills and strategies to facilitate greater connection with their child. 

What you will learn

In the retreats we provide practical strategies for self-regulation which are based on key pillars of research including yogic philosophy, neuroscience, mindfulness and social and emotional learning – all so you can create a sense of calm within yourself. These include:

  • Yogic philosophy including pranayama (breathing) and asana (poses)
  • Neuroscience includes brain function and nervous system responses including the fight, flight, fawn and freeze responses and how to deal with them
  • Mindfulness including mantras and meditations to bring about a sense of calm and awareness to manage and acknowledge your child’s feelings and behaviours
  • Social and Emotional learning that includes tried and tested self-regulation skills and strategies for young children
