April 2023 Newsletter

April 2023 Newsletter

It’s almost April and this week we can feel that the season has changed… Autumn is here. I’m sending out my newsletter earlier, from Cape Town today, as I am finally going to Retreat Yourself in Elandskloof tomorrow – something I’ve been wanting to do for years! Taking some much needed me time! As I mentioned in my January 2023 newsletter, I am taking this year to commit to my own well-being, healing, peace, and growth!

This year I’ve hit the ground running and I must say, instead of running away from my shadow am I facing it head-on. I struggled with IBS on and off for as long as I can remember, but since December 2022 has it become worse and worse – just another symptom of stress and anxiety manifesting in my body.

I started TRE® sessions with Tracy Loubser in February. (TRE® or Tension Release Exercises, is a somatic body-based practice for people suffering from stress, anxiety, trauma or PTSD)  and the last 9 weeks have just been so incredible!  It’s as if a thread has been sewn across all the different therapies I’ve done over the last 5 years, and just tied it all together – releasing all the tension and stress that was repressed and trapped in my body.

Many of us carry repressed and trapped energy or emotions within the cells of our bodies, and we are completely unaware of them. We journey through life, oblivious to the blocked energy our cells and muscles are holding. This blocked, suppressed energy leads to health conditions and suffering.

Every cell in your body has a memory, not just your brain cells.

She is available for TRE® sessions either at her home-based practice in Featherbrooke Estate, online, or at Woodlands. Contact her to make the change. I highly recommend you try this – even more so after we hosted the Module 2 TRE training seminar at Woodlands with Dr Erika Coertzen this past month.  The success I’ve seen in my own life, I’ve decided that we will be adding TRE sessions onto our Treatment Menu.

It’s really changed my quality of life.  
Onwards and Upwards
In deciding that 2023 is my year of healing, am I taking a step back, which means that I’ve had to delegate and hire people who I trust with the gift of Woodlands.  In March, we’ve welcomed Anja as our new General Manager, and Sipiwe as Spa Manager.  Taking a step back, healing myself and focusing on my children. I’ve put all of my energy into Woodlands and feel that I’ve missed so much of their lives over the past 8 years, which of course has been fulfilling beyond belief.  As it’s now established and I have the team that I’ve envisioned in place, am I taking a step back to allow Anja, Sipiwe, and the rest our amazing team to step into their power, which in turn will allow me to focus on our expansion plans later on in the year. 

For the month of April we will be running an array of promotions and don’t forget our monthly chakra workshop. This month is all about the Sacral. Our sacral chakra is situated just above our pubic area, it’s associated with the emotional body, sensuality, and creativity. Its element is water and as such, its energy is characterised by flow and flexibility.
We will be running the ‘Let’s talk Intention & Sacral Chakra Workshop’ on the 30th. Please book your space early to avoid disappointment.
