ABOUT THE ADVENTURE
You can never pour from an empty cup, it’s time to nurture yourself.
We have designed this adventure specifically for Change Makers, Way Finders, Leaders, Educators, Facilitators, Service providers, Artists and Instructors (although EVERYONE is welcome). We understand that you manage an array of roles and responsibilities as well as energies. Finding the balance between caring for the needs of everyone else around you and your own can often leave you feeling burnt out; mentally, physically and emotionally exhausted. Your hosts, Kaitlyn and Jess are educators themselves and have first hand knowledge of the stress, accelerating pressures and discontent you might be experiencing. They understand how it feels to pour your heart and soul into your profession and yet often feel overwhelmed or disheartened at the same time.
If you are drained, how can you have the patience, positive energy and enthusiasm to provide the best care and instruction to others? We believe you deserve to thrive in your work and that the cycle of burn out CAN be consciously broken, leading to more balance and joy. The offering will take you on a journey to help support you on a holistic level with each day focussing on a new theme.

The memories, relationships and growth you will experience will last a lifetime and be treasured forever.
When we choose to adventure outward in breathtaking natural settings like Kea while surrounded by a community of amazing people, we feel safe and compelled to also venture inward. Present and Immersed in the beauty around us, we fully experience the wild grander of Nature and see the need for reverence and protection of Mother Earth. Through this act we embody our own place within the wondrous world and see ourselves as equally deserving of honour and respect. Self awareness, through embodied practice such as movement, meditation, breath, play, conversation and connection can change the way you live in your skin.
The Yoga / movement sessions to free your body of tension and pain in order to connect deeper and share the experience and fun with a global community. Sessions and activities will be inspired by Kea’s raw nature and the deep blue sea that will surround us. Nature always provides us with the perfect landscape to get out and play or take rest. Classes include discussion, journal activities, reflection and tangible tools to support living life in alignment physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Outdoor Adventure will be the ultimate embodiment of freedom and movement where we'll experience day trips to beautiful beaches, hikes to ancient to ruins and memorable connections to Mama Earth.
Creative Expression is essential and helps us to maintain our passion and live purposefully. It is difficult to feel creative when we are tired and dull. During your stay with us, Kaitlyn, the founder of Mountain Stone Jewelry will curate a number of mindful and intentional experiences for you to reignite your creativity and motivation.
