Hi there I'm Richard Brook founder of Creative Wellness This group is an evolution from my Creative Yoga London meetup, which was without doubt London's most exciting and unique yoga project and meetup! Why? Because I truly care about connection, I used to host London's biggest weekly yoga class and SOCIAL and all kinds of super creative stuff like singles and couples yoga, once again with socials so you can actually get some nourishing connection alongside your health kicks - while feeling very relaxed of course.
Well it's time to take this Creative Tour De Force on the Road!
I'm extremely privileged that alongside my London project, for the past 3 years, I've also facilitated wellness programmes and retreats from an amazing retreat centre in the Algarve, Moinhos Velhos. These programmes are so good they are rated in the top 10 in the world by The Times!
And now I'm back with my own retreats and projects at Moinhos Velhos, alongside the occasional London super yoga event (Look out for our summer yoga sessions on the Camden Roundhouse Beach!)
So what can you expect?
Essentially an Holistic Wellness extravaganza. My wellness retreat motto is teach, treat, educate and connect. Nourishment on every level, what more do you need? I've been working with holistic health over 20 years and in that time I've figured out what elements we need as human beings to thrive, and it's my passion to bring it to you.
It's also helpful that my professional skills are exceptional, being an expert in 5 Elements Acupuncture, the Body-mind connection, Holistic Education alongside running some of London's biggest yoga events.
A typical retreat will feature:
• Meditation, Mindfulness and Deep Relaxation
• Optional Therapies (Including the unique Physiospect Analysis - check out the experience Moinhos Velhos video below to see more about that)
• Holistic Education Sessions (these are unique to my project and can fill what is often a massive missing link in retreats - nourishing the 'mind' - I like to explain how things work so you can go away with a new level of understanding)
• A beautiful Spiral Walk letting go and creative visioning workshop
• Beach trip
• An evening meal out
• Sauna, pool and Hot tub (of course!)
• And just lots of space to relax and connect!
Nourish your Belly with Lots of Great Food!
Nourish your body with Lots of Pool time in the beautiful natural environment!
LONDON EVENTS - AD HOC WORKSHOPS WHICH MIGHT APPEAR:
Finding shared activities are the life blood of a happy relationship. We will always have differences with our partners and lovers but finding things that connect you together are PRICELESS
You get chance to find new ways of connecting with your partner and learn some super fun partner yoga, connection and intimacy exercises you can also use at home.
Meditation and the Body-Mind Connection
So have you ever wondered what meditation is all about? Have you ever wondered what makes up the content of your mind and more about ‘who’ you are?
My expertise is in identifying and helping you understand the thought patterns which move through your mind — how they change and relate to the physiology within your body. This makes meditation practice much more effective, as my unique meditation and body-mind connection workshops unable you to understand what you may be experiencing during periods of meditation.
