What can you expect at the Holiday Wellness Break?

This wellness themed event will begin by connecting with others and setting intentions for your morning, followed by a 45 minute yoga class. Your class will be guided by Kelly Hefford from Yoga with Kellz.

Following yoga, hear from entrepreneur, poet, and community builder Ben Switzer about his journey with mindfulness and how meditation has played a role in his mental health, well-being and growing success.

We will then be guided through a mindfulness meditation to ground ourselves and connect with our senses. Unsure about meditation? Not to worry, Daniel Kharlas, who will be facilitating our meditation, offers a gentle introduction into the practice and guidance throughout.

We will close out the morning together, reflecting on our experience and offering kindness, patience and compassion to ourselves and those around us.

What will you need?

  • Comfortable clothing that you will be able to do yoga in
  • Yoga mat
  • Environmentally friendly water bottle
  • Blanket and meditation cushion if you wish
