(No availability) 23 Day "Nourishing Roots" Online Retreat with Restorative Yoga

Online Wellness and Yoga Retreat

Nourishing Roots is a prescription for well-being for the body-mind as one. It introduces the ABC of Chinese medicine wellbeing principles and uses Restorative Yoga practices as a way to activate and rejuvenate the free flow of the energy systems. It explains how you are created from ancestral essence which forms your unique constitution, and is supplemented by the acquired energy from your day to day diet. You will be guided to find flow in life, clear blocks so you can show up in your full-bodied presence. Structured as seven steps, (called chapter on the online course) the Roots course includes ancient Wisdom teachings, guided reflections to help you apply the teachings to your own life, and restorative yoga practices. Cameron Tukapua, Chinese medicine practitioner, offers you a lifetime of clinical practice and practitioner training experience. This course is designed to empower people to balance and heal themselves using self-care as the new health care. All learnings are suitable for sharing with friends, family, clients and students.

We suggest you allow approximately 45-60 mins to look at the online material in between webinars.

Each webinar introduces one chapter of the seven chapters, from the online course which is included as part of this retreat package. The webinars introduce the ABC of Chinese medical theory on body functions and flows. Each chapter of the online course has pre-recorded restorative Yoga practices and instructions benefits and contraindications of practices. All practices are suitable for beginners.

The content of the live Webinar includes some interactive sharing to explore how these teachings come alive in our lives. Questions can be submitted through the chat room and will help guide the teachings.

“The Nourishing Roots course has transformed my life and empowered me to stand in my truth. My self-care is my priority and my joy and passion now bubble up from within my soul. Prior to engaging the 7-step ‘Roots’ program, I was just surviving from one day to the next feeling constantly overwhelmed and unhappy.

My relationship had deteriorated and I was on the verge of a divorce. This survival mode had sent me into depths of disparity and I did not know how to help myself. Layers of past hurts and traumas were surfacing and I knew I needed help, but didn’t know how to articulate this.

I also knew that the medication route was not an option for me as this would only be a temporary fix. I really wanted to get to the roots of my situation. The depths of the darkness was really difficult for me to accept as I was usually the positive person that made everyone laugh. That person was buried under a layer that many were quick to label ‘depression’.

Then I found the Nourishing Roots course and it delivered on every level. The confusion lifted, the deep-seated unhappiness dissolved and the fatigue had faded within weeks.

‘Roots’ is now my map for navigating my way with clarity and purpose, an anchor to feeling grounded. Living my life with newfound enthusiasm and a new language to express myself is so liberating and by sharing my experience I hope to reach others for it is in the connection that we learn and heal.”
