ALIGN RETREAT

Appenzell

27th - 30th of January 2022

4 days/3 nights

For you to become the best version of yourself, you first need to identify what matters to you.
What gives you a sense of purpose?
What are your values?
How do you best connect to a sense of meaning?

In this retreat you will be kindly guided closer to your answers to the questions above.
You will explore and reflect on what values are important to you and get clearer on the type of person you want to become. 

 

We – Bella and Hanne –  have created this retreat to help you return to a sense of alignment. In mind, soul, emotion, and body.

The value of values

Values can serve as a kind of psychological anchor to keep us grounded and connect to our real self. If we are what we habitually do, then we also need to take time considering if what we are doing matters to us. Without action, a value becomes no more than an aspiration - so we have to learn to make daily choices that move us towards our values. This creates a more meaningful life as we move towards knowing who we are, what we stand for and making choices aligned with our full self.

 

The retreat: A nurturing and nourishing environment

On this retreat, Bella & Hanne will create a nurturing and nourishing environment to explore, get curious and learn how to put our values into practise as we journey through our lives. 

 

Our process will include group daily yoga practises, discussions, reflective exercises, mindfulness practises and lots of space to breathe, reflect and unwind. 

 

The body work, the yoga, will provide us with an invaluable chance to ground ourselves and root our new knowledge and learning. 

Expect a fun, dynamic and inspiring atmosphere where we will encourage one another to observe, understand, deepen and align in both body and mind. 

We will meet twice a day over the course of the long weekend to practise morning yoga and also engage in afternoon workshops and meditation, as well as sharing meal times. They’ll be plenty of time for yourself too, with no crammed schedules.

Bella and Hanne

Bella Glover, a British trained Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist and founder of beingwell, studied psychological approaches to the mind that give us tools to change the way our brain works, boost self esteem, increase resilience and build on strengths.  My training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy opened up a world of potential and possibility for understanding why we think and act the way we do.

​Bella also trained in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT).

Hanne Mogensen, a Danish trained vinyasa and yin yoga teacher and founder of FlowFabrik, is fascinated by flow. How can we create more flow in our day to day life? What small changes can the individual make in his/her way of moving, breathing, being, doing which will have magnificient influence on the overall state of being? Hanne teaches yoga classes which are powerful, soft, empowering and reflective.

Hanne is currently undertaking an education to become a Wellness and Health Coach.
