Wellness Day Reviews

Hi Jane,  Just a few lines to let you know how much I enjoyed my Wellness Day with you and my fellow participants  on the foothills of the Blackstairs Mountains.  The atmosphere was calm and so relaxing.  I loved the Pilates stretch and my body loved it even more.  I felt the stress refreshingly fade from my body.  The walk was uplifting and oh so scenic.  I felt wrapped around by the mountains and the fresh air was invigorating.  The meditation in the afternoon was a melting moment which appeared to last forever.  Body and soul in sync!  The food and snacks were indeed a treat, so wholesome.  To sum up the day I escaped my world and was renewed in Jane’s world.

Great stretching class and a lovely walk in the foothills of the Blackstairs Mountains, with great views on the day.  Relaxation class was a fantastic way to end the day and the whole experience was a welcome change of pace from the usual day-to-day.  Delicious and hearty lunch after all the fresh air and the good company made for a thoroughly enjoyable day, thank you.

Signing up for the Wellness Day felt selfish and challenging. The thought of a whole day doing things I enjoy was very appealing but what would the day entail? Would I be able for the activities?
A walk along the foothills of the nearby mountain started the day. It was a beautiful morning, the air was so clear and fresh, the views were amazing and the group proved interesting and so friendly. The two hours flew by and we returned to base exhilarated, energized and hungry. Everyone brought a snack to share and hot drinks and food were very welcome.
The hour that followed seemed like a gentle mix of yoga and Pilates stretching out was the perfect antidote to the earlier walk.
Lunch followed and Jane provided a delicious meal that everyone thoroughly enjoyed.
A deep relaxation session followed and this proved the perfect end to our day.
I’ve been wondering if and how the day could be improved on and have drawn a blank. For me it was a perfect day.
