Happy New Year. Start the year with an online retreat! We have rounded up the best online yoga and wellness retreats in case you can’t get away and travel at the moment, you can have the retreat come to you!
Find a quiet and calm space in your home (or garden!) to set yourself up for the retreat, roll out your yoga mat and tune in online to be fully guided through your practice.
And if you’re in the mood to learn a new skill whilst simultaneously improving your health, we’ve included some holistic wellness workshops and mindfulness courses that you can also join in the New Year.
If you are feeling isolated, overwhelmed, and looking to create a more positive home environment. If you are looking to incorporate better healthy routines and practices at home, such as, better nutrition, immunity, stress relief, and physical movement, this virtual retreat is for you.
If we are going to remain contained at home, Let’s make the best of what we have to work with and create a safe, comfortable, and healing environment for ourselves – a place of sanctuary where we feel our mind can rest and feel assured in health and wellness.
We will work together to create a warm and comfortable space, as well as getting to create a new routine at home that can be used during the weekend and throughout the year.
Dive into what self care practices you can be using at home with massage, skincare, nutrition, and positive thoughts. Learn the importance of creating a sacred space at home and how to incorporate certain items for a positive feel in your space.
Over the weekend you will experience yoga, meditation, free talk, body movement/dance, two cooking classes, sound bath healing, self care at home practices session, fire dancing and a cacao ceremony.

How about starting this brand new year with the intention of integrating more self love into your daily life, getting out of your head, into your body and finding new insights in what works best for you and your dream life?

On January 16th, the New Moon is in Pisces and this is the perfect moment to set intentions and think about what you want to bring more into your life.
What can you expect from this Online Retreat? A program created with love that you can follow from the comfort of your own home in your favourite comfy outfit.
- A grounding meditation for more headspace and peace of mind.

“Learn to manage difficulty with more ease and kindness”. Mud & Lotus Wellness would like to invite you to participate in a virtual (ZOOM) offering of the Mindful Self-Compassion program.
This program will be facilitated by Mindful Self-Compassion Trained Teachers Anna Marie Batelaan (BSW, MSW, RSW) and Dagmara Urbanowicz (MSW, RSW)certified through the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion and the University of California San Diego.
Anna Marie and Dagmara have many years of clinical Social Work experience in a variety of settings as well as teaching and facilitating Mindfulness and Compassion based programs. They have been facilitating and loving this program for a number of years and are excited to embark on the adventure of Mindful Self-Compassion with you! If you are interested in finding out more about Anna Marie and Dagmara check out their bio for further details.
Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) is a “proven way to accept yourself, build inner strength, and thrive.” In a time when we all need something to hold us up in the flood of life and world challenges, MSC can support us to navigate it all with more ease by starting with compassion for our own challenges and difficulties!
MSC is an empirically supported 9 session program designed to cultivate the skill of self-compassion. This program was developed by Dr. Christopher Germer, PhD, a leader in the integration of mindfulness and psychotherapy and Dr. Kristen Neff, PhD, a pioneering researcher in the field of self-compassion.
Self-compassion can be learned by anyone. It fosters emotional strength and resilience, allowing one to admit to ones shortcomings, motivating oneself with kindness, forgiving oneself as needed, transforming empathy fatigue into wholehearted engagement with others and being oneself more authentically. The intention of this program is to support participants in building their well-being, resilience, and self- compassion tool box in order to meet life’s difficulties with more ease and kindness.

Change how you feel and act around food: #1 of The Appetite Doctor Online Retreats with Dr Helen McCarthy, The Appetite Doctor.
Do you find it hard to stick to a diet? Do you find it difficult to get motivated to make the effort to lose weight? Do you find part of you wants to lose weight whilst another part can’t be bothered and just wants to enjoy food?
This is the first in a series of one-day retreats to help you change your relationship with food. I’ll help you understand why it’s normal to revert to old patterns of eating, and what the science of habit change tells us about how we can keep on track forming new behaviours and beliefs.
You’ll see that it’s not because you’re weak and it’s more to do with what diet you have chosen to follow and whether underneath it all you have mixed feelings about losing weight.
We will use up to date, fun exercises to help you strengthen your motivation and discover strengths you didn’t know you had. You’ll learn how to tap in to positive energy within you, to overcome the self-sabotage that has held you back before.
By the end of the day you’ll understand better the blocks that held you back before, and have practical strategies to tune in to and use your positive desire for change.
Dr Helen McCarthy is a best selling author of How to Retrain your Appetite and Consultant Clinical Psychologist with 30 years’ experience helping people change unhelpful patterns of feeling, thinking and acting. She is holding a series of four 1-day online retreats for you to come together to think about and learn ways of developing a new relationship with food.
Most people know what and how they “should” be eating, but we all know that nutritional knowledge isn’t the whole story. For many of us the blocks to losing weight or achieving a happier relationship with food are psychological. Whether that’s because we struggle to maintain our initial motivation, lack willpower, struggle with cravings or emotional eating, the issues that keep us stuck are emotional or mental blocks.
Using practical strategies and techniques from the field of Clinical Psychology, Dr Helen McCarthy helps people change their unhelpful eating habits for good.
Date: Friday 15th January 9:30am – 4pm GMT.
