This week retreat hosted by Michelle Roberton will be set in the serenity of Italian countryside has been created through love and lived experience to bring to you and your body limitless time, space and support to re~invent, re~ wire and re~ form your personal relationship with your body.

Body Love tools are about developing a consistent and unconditional connection with your body as a beautiful living relationship, regardless of yours or other’s ideas of body image and perfection, age, weight, height, culture, scars, cellulite, body trauma, body dissociation and so forth.

These tools enable us to form a relationship with our body, that is no different to all our relationships that we feed with time, dedication, devotion and love.

We are not taught self-love in this society, we therefore often have to take ourselves through a process of self-learning to allow ourselves to love our bodies fully-in all our flaws and beauty.

Body Love retreats are a gift of love to you and your body, that will change how you feel in your own skin and in your life!

The week will include:

  • Gentle morning yoga with Jana Marie. The practice will be simple and structured around rejuvenating and healing your body.
  • An exploration of your body story and personal resistance to loving your body and allowing this deeply personal relationship into your life.
  • Support for releasing pain, grief, shame and BS beliefs of body perfection.
  • We will work together through how you are feeling in your own body and provide space for you to learn how to deeply listen to your body’s needs.
  • We will explore through methods I have created through my personal journey to body love and develop a “body love toolkit” for you to apply to your life as an essential daily dose of self-commitment and devotion.
  • Full permission for you to come home to your own skin, bones and all of life’s simple pleasures!
  • We will look at conscious food choices.
  • Space to rest, reflect, be held and be heard.
  • Time to simply be in Italian nature.
  • Evenings will be spent gathered together, sharing extremely good nourishing home cooked food and plenty of evening fun.
  • Cacao dance of forbidden Eros.
  • We will have two daytime adventures.
  • One to Atri, a local medieval city and one for a day at the coast of  Pineto.
