Take a {Short Pause} and Choose Self-Care Workshop

Marina Galletis & Charisse Fourie

Choosing self-care helps us manage a sense of overwhelm and anxiety, protects us from burnout and enables us to be the most authentic version of ourselves. It can be the greatest gift of nourishment and care not only to yourself, but also to those around you. We would like to invite you to take a {Short Pause} with us for a break from your busy life to recharge, replenish and restore. While there are many ways to practice self-care we are going to focus on self-care by utilising both body and mind approaches and practical techniques to increase awareness. We will do this through small teaching pieces, sharing, and practicing some techniques.

  • Breaking Myths

    We want to break the myth that self-care needs lots of time (and money).

  • Accessible

    We want to show that self-care can be small, simple things that are easily accessible to all of us - even in the most busiest of days.

  • New tools

    We want you leaving feeling lighter and refreshed, so that you can continue to face the rest of your days, weeks, months with optimism and hope.

What People are Saying

Putting myself first

It was very beneficial, I learned so much about myself in a calm gentle way and was reminded to pause and take care of myself first.

Practical examples

I think it is an excellent introduction to understanding how self-care can be achieved on multiple levels (cognitive, emotional, social and physical) with the use of practical examples and experiences.

I learnt a lot

I was unsure and slightly sceptical on what to expect but it worked out to be great and I learnt a lot
