Well, it is my absolute pleasure to be working alongside 2 beautiful ladies that I am so blessed to call my friends ?
Francesca, Shauna and I met at work. We had an instant common denominator in that we all have a connection to Italy!
Francesca was born in Tuscany and spent the first 25 or so years of her life there! Shauna and I both studied Italian at University and spent some time living there. I personally spent 3 years of my life living in the beautiful city of Bologna in the Emilia Romagna region.
But I digress… it may have been our love for Italy that first drew us to eachother, but I truly believe that ultimately the universe transpired to make our paths cross.
We have each followed our own individual career paths but our connection has always stayed strong. So while we may no longer share an office space, we are so delighted to work together towards a common goal.
We all share a desire to help bring peace and wellness to our families and those around us. A desire to find light and love in our own lives and help guide others to do the same.
And so Girasole Retreats was born!
The name we have chosen – Girasole – is the Italian word for Sunflower. The flower that follows the sun! An ideal symbol for what we hope to achieve ?
This is truly mind and body wellness at its finest!
We specialise in 3 different areas –
I am the Pilates provider (read more about this here)
Francesca is our Reflexology specialist (read more about this here)
Shauna is our EFT Practitioner (post coming shortly with more information from Shauna 🙂 )
Together these 3 practices can help you arrive at a deeper state of mind and body wellness – our ultimate goal!
Our WEEKEND retreats are held at Lorne House in Holywood, Co. Down, and we hope to have some DAY RETREATS in other locations around the province in the near future.
At our retreats you will enjoy:
– Exploring posture and core strength with me on the mat through beginner-friendly Pilates sessions
– A Choice of either Reflexology or Indian Head massage from Francesca.
– An introduction to EFT with Shauna where you will learn more about this amazing mind and body technique and discover how it can dramatically help you with issues such as anxiety or stress. You will also have a time allocated to you for an individual session with Shauna where you can delve a little deeper into any specific issues you may have.
We may also bring other practitioners along to offer you the chance to receive further treatments such as Reiki, NLP, Aromatherapy massage and others…
