Nourish your body, mind, heart & soul in the Body Glow Retreat 

Saturday 19th October

10.00 am to 4.00pm

I am so delighted to be teaming up (again) with Rosie Mcgrath to bring you this wonderful one-day BODY GLOW RETREAT! Rosie and I have been talking about this for a while and we have put together the most beautiful nourishing, loving and replenishing day!

 

This magical retreat brings together everything that you need to really nourish yourself – mind, body, heart & soul. You will leave feeling revitalized, refreshed and replenished on every level. And what’s more, you will be taking away tools, skills, recipes and knowledge that will enable you to keep this wonderful feeling long after the retreat has ended.

There is also a fabulous Goody bag as our gift & thank you to you! 

 

It’s all about feeling, looking and being RADIANT! It’s about having that beautiful GLOW from the inside out.

 

When we give ourselves time to press “pause” on our busy lives and take some time to truly nourish ourselves, something rather magical happens. Our energy increases, we are able to think more clearly and make decisions based on what we truly desire. We melt into our inner sense of peace and our body feels freer, more vital and full of energy than it has done for years. People may ask you what you have done, as you seem to have turned back the hands of time and look years younger!

 

Discover your GLOW and RADIATE beauty, health & wellbeing!

 

  • Discover how to use plant based nutrition to help heal the physical body & revitalise the energy body.

  • Learn what foods support and help manage your emotional state of being and how to eat for energy, health and vitality.

  • Discover how food is your greatest beauty ingredient so you look fresh, dewy and glowing every day!

  • Experience the art of conscious mindful eating and fall in love with every bite you eat! 

  • Free your body with Chakraneticsä (gentle energy medicine movement) as you learn the seven energy movements to release stress, boost vitality, improve posture & raise your core vibrations.

  • Age younger as you discover Astrid’s awesome energy facial – a fabulous natural energy facial you can do yourself, to smooth away tension, detox the cells and bring a beautiful glow to your complexion.

  • Wrap yourself up in cosiness and melt into peace and harmony with the beautiful Body Glow meditation.  

 

A little bit about us!

 

Rosie’s story

Rosie is a fully trained plant based chef who studied at “Plant Based Academy” Dublin - Ireland’s most extensive plant based Michelin standard culinary school. 

 

She is also a graduate of the Institute for Body Confidence Coaching  (www.instituteforbodyconfidencecoaching.com) & is a certified wellness and body confidence coach based in Tralee, Co. Kerry 

 

After years of careless eating Rosie was forced to learn more about healthy eating so that she could heal her health issues naturally as traditional medical approaches were only treating her symptoms and not addressing the core underlying problems. 

 

Rosie strongly believes that the body wants to heal itself if and when supported with conscious, mindful eating and through a holistic approach to self-care to nourish the mind, body and spirit harmoniously together.

 

Rosie is extremely passionate about making plant based cooking fun and easy for those starting off.

Rosie will help break some of the myths of plant based eating , inform you of what’s truly important when making healthy changes to your nutrition and outline some of the key principles to ensure you can still enjoy your food! 

 

Rosie wants to inspire you to take your health into your own hands so that you can live life with a bit more pep in your step and with a little more glow :))

 

My story

I am the Founder of the Institute for Body Confidence Coaching, Author of two books, (Body Confidence) & (Romancing your body – How to fall deeply, passionately & wildly in love with your body & your life!) and co-founder of Chakranetics (energy medicine fitness).

 

I was also the former fitness presenter on GMTV, presenting the number one fitness slot on UK national television at a size 20!

 

I struggled with eating disorders, low body image and chronic ill health (having suffered with Arthritis for over 20 years). However, this lead me on a journey of self-healing and body love.

 

I believe that our bodies are our greatest teachers. When we learn to listen, feel and trust the messages of our amazing body we “come home” to who we authentically are. I teach & coach globally on how to fall in love with every part of ourselves and live our most delicious, fabulous lives.  

 

Ballyvelly House, Tralee

The retreat is set in Ballyvelly house…a lovely private country home. As soon as you enter the kitchen, it’s as if the house wraps its arms around you and whispers that you are so welcome here.

 

Everything on the retreat has been prepared with love, from the organic plant-based food, (breakfast & lunch are included) to the gorgeous goody bags that you will take home with you.

 

Rosie and I look forward to welcoming you into this timeless oasis of peace, warmth and beautiful replenishment.

Its Back!

Astrid Longhurst has teamed with the Meadowlands Hotel to create a beautiful retreat weekend experience with an aim to provide an oasis from the rush and stress of everyday life.

 

It is when we take time to slow down and press “pause” on our lives that we give ourselves the greatest gift of all - health, joy, inner peace, vitality and wellbeing. 

 “Your ritual retreat” is all about little loving acts of kindness and self-care that you give to yourself. Self-care rituals turn your attention inwards towards your own needs, dreams and wishes. By giving meaning to your daily routines and infusing them with love, you turn each and every day of your life into a harmonious and joyful experience.

Set in the beautiful ambience of the Meadowlands Hotel, “Your Ritual Retreat” is a place where you can relax, renew and recharge your batteries. It is a place to make new friends (if you so wish) or just a space to come home to you.  The retreat includes two nights of luxury accommodation with an option to stay a little longer.

All of the teachers on the retreat have something unique and special to offer. Each of the retreat experiences have been designed to promote healing, rest, relaxation, a deep sense of peace, empowerment and a joy and vitality that will leave you feeling refreshed, energised and revitalised. You will also learn how to build these beautiful rituals into your own life so that you will be able to continue the experience long after the retreat has ended.

Participants will share in the Meadowland’s passion for delicious, local & seasonal produce throughout the weekend.  The focus of the food is to celebrate the daily routines around meals to adopt positive rituals that not only make food taste a lot better but also help to sustain and nourish us.

 

Come and join us in this magical and deeply nourishing weekend. We look forward to welcoming you. Give yourself the gift of “Your Ritual Retreat.”

 (With love, Astrid Longhurst & the Amazing Ritual Retreat team at the Meadowlands)

TRALEE ENERGY MEDICINE HEALING CIRCLE!

I began my energy medicine healing circles as a place where people could come and restore their energy and tap into their own innate powers of healing and wellness. A place where we can just take some space and time to rest and reconnect with our body’s wisdom. In this fast paced world we need to press the pause button on life and gather ourselves back into our own harmony, inner peace and wellbeing.

 

For me this is vital to my own sense of purpose, joy and vitality. In the circles I teach simple energy medicine practices that you can use immediately in your life. I also guide you through gentle breath-work and the most restorative healing meditations and visualisations.

 

The next energy medicine healing circle is in Tralee at the Meadowlands hotel on Wednesday 8th August from 7.30 to 9.30pm. The cost is 20.00 euros.

 

The circles get booked up very quickly so please contact me asap to book your place. I am so looking forward to seeing you there and stepping once more into that wonderful place of peace, light, energy, harmony & wellbeing with you.

 

Thank you for being there...With love, Astrid x

Astrid’s Energy Medicine Healing Circle - Killarney

Following the magical experience of my last energy medicine healing circle I am delighted to bring you details of the next circle I am teaching.

The comments from the last circle were extraordinary, from people  being able to move past childhood trauma and distress to finding an inner peace and calm that they had not experienced before. This is what it’s about.

Healing means to make whole. The circle is about helping you to find that completeness within yourself. Once this happens, the body can begin to activate its own innate and natural healing potential. So often we have felt powerless about our own health.

I know that in the past I have been in despair over my own journey back to health, vitality and wellness again. However, our challenges are there to teach us to grow more into who we truly are. My energy medicine healing circles are experiential and also informative.

I seek to teach you how to become your own energy healer so that you can take charge of your health, emotions and vitality. Every healing circle is different so that you gain a wide range of healing possibilities to suit you

Chakranetics

 

 

 Energy Medicine Fitness

 

Chakranetics is a mindful movement energy practice. It combines mindful meaningful movement, energy medicine and positive psychology.

 

Chakranetics works by helping the body to release energy blocks and cultivate abundant life force energy, which promotes greater vitality, happiness and fulfilment for one’s self and all of life.

It invites you to slow down and reconnect with our deep sense of self and “come home” to all that you truly are.
As you move slowly with focused awareness you are able to collect your scattered thoughts and to be gentle with your body –– to focus on this “home” and the energy in and around it.

 

Chakranetics incorporates meaningful movements, sounds, meditations and visualizations to help you move into the inner sacred space of the self and tap into the wisdom of your body.
This is achieved through movements that are slow and gentle, which encourage you to connect with a wider spectrum of energy –– available both externally and internally –– thus replenishing and recharging our overall energy, vitality & body harmony.

 

It is revolutionary

It is a revolutionary and evolutionary new mind body & soul fitness paradigm for everyone  who is  searching for a new way to fully embody their lives and enhance their well-being, health, joy, inner peace, energy and vitality.
The system combines the energy pathways of the physical body, the mental body and the subtle energetic systems of the chakras and meridians as a body template. By using a blend of beautiful flowing mindful movements, the very practice of mindfulness is embodied. One of the most revolutionary principles of Chakranetics™ is the added “layering” of energy medicine and meaningful movement.

 

The benefits of Chakranetics

  • Helps activate whole brain coherence

  • Gives access to gateways of higher consciousness

  • Helps develop integrated body awareness

  • Helps develop heart centered qualities

  • Reduces stress

  • Helps you to manage and “talk” with your emotions

  • Release old ways of being, moving and thinking in your life

  • Gives you a sacred space for you to return “home” and access the ‘real” YOU!

  • Helps improve sleep.

  • Boosts the immune system

  • Changes the way you habitually use your body i.e posture, awareness of walking, sitting, standing and how you habitually move through your life.

  • Changing the way you move changes the way you think and feel.

  • Helps reduce anxiety, fear and excessive worrying or overthinking

  • Creates a higher energy vibration of joy, aliveness, vitality and youthfulness!

  • Creates a deep comforting and soothing inner peace

  • Strengthens your awareness and relationship with yourself and your connection with the Universe or Source

  • Boosts Body Confidence and helps to create a new “body Story”.
