Sleep Retreat

 

March 7-10, 2019

Springfield Farm, Bowral

 

This three day intimate retreat is the perfect chance to learn about and reset your sleep ritual, and get some well deserved sleep. You should spend almost a third of your life asleep, and you need to. Sleep is where your body finds balance for its many functions, from the emotional to the cognitive, all the way down to the immune system. 

This is also the perfect opportunity to learn the potential reasons for your own disrupted sleep patterns. While most of us know that caffeine and screen time before bed time is a big no, what if the answer is less obvious…at least to you! Take advantage of having your own Naturopath on hand for 4 days, as Polly hosts the retreat and helps you to uncover the reason for your own sleep issues, ensuring you get the most out of your newly designed sleep ritual. Polly is able to help you identify your individual reasons for disrupted sleep and facilitate your learning in how to correct them - from blood sugar levels and thyroid concerns to electrolyte imbalance and problems with neurotransmitters, there are a range of avenues to explore for your disrupted sleep. 

You're invited to come and engage in an intimate space, with deep rest and some inspiring women, treating yourself to a getaway in complete comfort and tranquility at Springfield Farm in Bowral. Set in a unique and beautiful location surrounded by nature, this program will include amazing workshops, relaxing yoga & meditation, nourishing meals, and deep sleep, with a chance to enjoy the many simple pleasures of all that surrounds you. 

 

To set yourself up for a good night's sleep, we need to slow down the brain before bed, particularly when it's overstimulated with technology, work, stress and anxiety. Take a chance to unplug from daily routines, social media and busy days and give yourself or a loved one, a chance to reset and focus on receiving a good night's sleep. You will also leave with a toolkit and resources to help you manage this in your own home environment.

FACILITATORS 

Meet the incredible women facilitating our Sleep Retreat.

POLLY REA, NATUROPATH
Polly is an Accredited Naturopath at her clinic, Feeling Dandy in Byron Bay and offering online consultations. Polly loves to be active, surrounded by nature and getting the most out of life. I’m also a partner to my fiancé, a mum to my three beautiful little boys, and a passionate foodie who loves to cook for family and friends.

I’ve always been fascinated with vitamins and minerals, how they benefit the body and how readily available they are in our food. Four years studying naturopathy unleashed my inner nerd! I formed a huge respect for the power of food as medicine, and a deep understanding and appreciation for biochemistry and pharmacognosy – how the chemistry of medicinal herbs interact with the chemistry of the body. My endless curiosity drives me to find the cause of dis-ease, working through the maze of the body to identify and address what’s going on inside.

I find great inspiration in nature and in the incredible women around me here in the hills of Byron Bay. I’m grateful for the support of this amazing community and embrace every opportunity to give back, sharing and learning from the rich pool of collective wisdom and knowledge.

DANIELLE KNIGHT & SHEA MORRISON, CO-FOUNDERS OF THE GOODNIGHT CO.
Established by two Mums who left their corporate worlds to pursue their interest in the role of sleep in wellbeing. Shea & Danielle launched with a goal to help the world fall back in love with sleep. Having heard about the many benefits of sleeping on silk, the duo started by finding the perfect luxurious silk pillowcases and sleep masks, matching strict quality criteria.

Since launching with their silk products in early 2015, the young mums set a mission to curate a range of products which can be used to create your perfect sleep ritual. Having a sleep ritual, and sticking to it consistently, is key to improving sleep. By practicing a regular routine, your mind and body begin to sync and you’ll soon find falling asleep so much easier. The current product range has expanded to include a variety of sleep supplements, bath & body products and a range of crystals, designed to be grouped to create the perfect sleep ritual. This March, the duo will continue helping their customers improve their sleep by organising The Goodnight Co.'s first Sleep Retreat.

FAQs

Do many people come on their own?

Yes, and it's the perfect way to focus on yourself and really reset. This is a wonderful opportunity to take the time and space to think and consider yourself care in this tranquil environment. If you travel alone, you can rest assured you will be well taken care of and will have a chance to meet other like minded individuals.  

 
Can I only book a twin room as a pair?

No, in fact, we encourage you to consider this option as an individual as it can be a great way to connect with others. As a more affordable option, a twin room could be an ideal room type for some to reap the full benefits of this retreat. 

 
Do I need to book a one-on-one naturopath consultation in advance?

No, there will be plenty of opportunity to make this booking upon arrival and throughout the retreat, however, if you know you would like an extended consultation, please let us know upon booking. 

 
How should I prepare for my visit?

This retreat is designed for everyone to benefit from, regardless of their background or lifestyle, however, there are steps you can take beforehand to better prepare your mind and body for this reset. In the week leading up to the retreat, we recommend you gradually reduce your caffeine intake, energy drinks, soft drinks, and highly sugary foods as these are limited at the retreat.

Please pack clothing which is practical and comfortable. As the weather in March can be cool, we suggest you bring some layers. Some essentials include a jacket, personal items, hat, sunglasses, light raincoat, watch, and any prescription medication. Please bring active wear (t-shirts, tights, gym pants or tracksuits) suitable for yoga and walking, as well as some very comfortable pieces for meditation. For your footwear, include some flat comfortable indoor shoes, closed in shoes and some slip on shoes. 

It's also important that a few things are not bought with you, including any alcohol, caffeine, cigarettes, illegal and non-prescription drugs. You can bring your mobile, laptop and tablet but we ask you leave these devices in your bedroom and limit your usage as much as possible.
