Ends: 22 July, 2019 with check out on 23 July, 2019 any time up to 2pm

Each day will start with mindful movement, focused on bringing awareness and harmony to the body-mind connection. Guided by Victoria Nhan, this morning activity will anchor you into your breath, setting a gentle, self-compassionate tone for the day.

Following a delicious breakfast, experience a guided workshop followed by time for self-reflection. This will allow you to evaluate steps you can realistically integrate immediately into your busy life, to increase gratitude, joy and awareness in every day.

After another flavoursome meal, join the retreat group for a supportive discussion to share intentions set from the morning, and how you anticipate these will impact on your life moving forwards. Spend the afternoon in quiet contemplation with optional, independent activities to complete should you wish.

Dinner will be served on the sunset balcony and followed by an evening meditation. On the Saturday evening, noble silence will be observed from the end of the meditation until the start of breakfast the following morning.

Workshops and evening meditations will be led by retreat host, reiki master and sound bowl practitioner, Naomi Rowan.

About the Retreat Facilitators

naomi rowan & Victoria nhan

Everything is energy, everything is vibration.  

Formally a music teacher and pastoral leader of 12 years, my ‘previous’ life was  focused on bringing young people into alignment with themselves, developing confidence, nurturing self-worth and enabling children to find their creative energies, so often quashed by the ‘need to achieve and succeed’.

Having taken a leap of faith and left a stable career to pursue a lifetime passion for mindfulness, meditation and energetic healing modalities I am now a Reiki Master/Teacher, Sound Bowl practitioner and retreat leader, and fortunate to be in a position to combine the tools and experience of the teaching profession with my core beliefs and practices. 

Trauma informed and trauma aware, I have read, digested and assimilated current and historic writings surrounding the concept of the body-mind connection, whether neuroscientific, energetic, physiological or psychological.  I believe that modern science is only now beginning touch the surface of ancient wisdom and through engagement in daily awareness of our thoughts, bodily sensations, intuition, actions and reactions, we are able to retrain our habitual patterns into a life of gratitude, love and compassion towards self and other.

Through my own journey, I have explored various modalities and found many tools along the way that enable individual empowerment.  All of our retreats are carefully planned and tailored to ensure a gentle, yet powerful journey of self, and time to explore how these take-away tools can be incorporated and embedded into your daily life once you leave the safe bubble of ‘time out’.

Victoria Nhan is an experienced registered yoga and mindfulness teacher, trainer and Reiki practitioner, originally from Toronto, Canada. After first stepping on the mat 9 years ago, she's discovered that the mat isn't just a place to sweat, its a place to breathe freely, to connect, to balance, and to harmonize the mind, body and spirit.

Whether we're looking to move, flow and discover our bodies or simply learn to breathe deeply with awareness and joy, yoga and mindfulness give us the space and tools to do so. In her classes, she brings mindfulness cues to allow students to cultivate breath awareness and enhance their body-mind connection. Expect her classes to be grounding, calm, yet dynamic and fun, making it accessible for all levels and body-types. Classes can include a mix of mindful movement, meditation, chanting, and pranayama or breathing techniques.

Yoga & Mindfulness continue to be a practice that nourishes Victoria both on and off the mat. Victoria's teachings and practice draw on her own experience and transformation through yoga, mindfulness and Reiki, and builds on the simple question, "how can we live life with more love, peace, and joy?". Her practice is based on the Zen Buddhist teachings of the Vietnamese monk Thich Nhat Hanh and the Plum Village spiritual community.

Being based in the beachside town of Hoi An, Vietnam for the last three years, Victoria enjoys many wonders of life including the sound of the ocean, delicious green & leafy herbs, and strong coffee. She is also the Founder of Yoga in Vietnam - Vietnam's leading source for yoga and wellness.
