On Saturday (12 January) we held our first HIIT+CHILL+CHAT mini-retreat event of the year in Richmond. An event focused on nourishing the mind, body and soul, through movement, mindfulness and nutrition.
Movement, Mindfulness and Nutrition… for mind, body soul.
Our event began with a fun, interactive 45-minute HIIT workout aimed at raising the heart rate, while working all the major muscle groups, to build strength and burn fat. As with all of our workouts, we follow the cool down by bringing the heart rate down, and taking the mind on a wonderful 30-minute relaxing mindfulness experience.
Our event finished with an incredibly insightful chat with Clarissa Lenherr, a registered and qualified nutritional therapist. Clarissa shared some wonderful tips about nutrition to support our mental, physical and emotional wellbeing. And our guests enjoyed nutritious snacks from our event sponsors*. Look out for our in-depth interview with Clarissa in February.
