What we're about
Upcoming events (3)
We've almost reached the end of the year, a time when a lot of us reflect and think about what we could do differently to get more of what we want in the new year. Whether your goal is to become healthier, get more active, spend more time with your family, quit smoking, or else, the way you go about it will determine how successful you are at achieving it. Studies show that only 8% of people actually keep their New Year’s resolutions and there are many reasons for that: setting too many goals, being over ambitious, and getting derailed by small failures are the most common ones. If you are one of those people who believe that not achieving one's goal is to do with no having any discipline and will power, think again and look at all the things that you do on a daily basis that are part of your routine and no longer require any will power. With hands-on exercises to get the ball rolling, Pascale, Co-Owner of La Holista, Executive & NLP Coach, and healthy living advocate will give you some tools to set those goals that really matter to you and will get you excited over starting this journey towards this improved You. This workshop will cover: * Key facts about the brain ... and how your perception of reality affects what you get in life * Building confidence and self-esteem ... your emotions are the key * Priorities and accountability .... and not beating yourself up for slipping * Goal setting ... clarify what you REALLY want, how to plan ahead and anticipate / deal with setbacks * Assessing progress .... and re-examining / re-setting goals Plus free 4-week online support after the workshop. Date: Saturday November 30th, 2019 Time: From 1pm to 3:30pm Investment: 600,000 VND / person including: - Organic Tea served with a Grain-Free Protein Peanut Butter Cookie - Pre-workshop preferred representational system assessment - Presentation - Hand-out - Home exercises - 4-week online support Sounds good?

The ascending and descending part of the hike will take us around 1 hour and 45 minutes each way. The path is in the jungle covered by trees and in some parts there will be a larger walking path. The route will be lightly signaled, however we will try to keep the group as united as possible. We will have a front group leader who will be able to pace and guide you during the hike and a back sweeper.

Please bring swimwear or / and a change of clothes (we often jump in with our clothes on).
