Your investment - from £54 before 1st July
(Please note, this retreat is for Mobilates past and present members only. You will need to have attended a one to one or group classes in person or online to be able to attend so that we can keep this a safe space. However, if you would like to bring a friend, and you can vouch for them , they would be most welcome to book.)
Ever since Mobilates moved classes online, members have relished every opportunity
to get together and meet in real life!!
We've had a few casual gatherings of hearts but now is the time for us to really enjoy a whole day of companionship with gorgeous food, beautiful, like-minded people, gentle movement and time out for the mind.
"I absolutely LOVE Mobilates and the family that you’ve built, it’s amazing & I never take it for granted. Hope & friendship are a real lifeline, especially when all the people you thought were your friends/support network & even family members 😓 all disappeared and I was left so alone & really poorly 🤒. I found Mobilates and for the first time in as long as I could remember, I had a lifeline to some really great people who don’t judge me at all 😳🌟🤩💖 and I actually have a light back on now at the end of the tunnel 😬 AND HOPE!! 🤩🌟💖."

Oracle readings with Callie Callie will be offering intuitive oracle readings, a nurturing way of tapping into your own inner wisdom and receiving insightful messages. Oracle readings are also very helpful if a perspective refresh is needed. Callie will make a note of your reading, and will send to you by follow-up email an audio recording of background information on your cards, including photographs of your cards. Please give Callie a few days to do this. Oracle cards to be used: she will see which oracle decks wish to come with her on the day, but at the moment Callie is working extensively with ‘Wisdom of the Oracle’ by Colette Baron-Reid, ‘Nature’s Whispers’ by Angela Hartfield, and the Faeries Oracle by Brian Froud. She currently owns 33 sets of oracle and tarot cards, and has read tarot cards since since her early 20’s, and oracle cards since 2005.
Trouble Shooting with Kerry Whether you’re feeling mystified by lateral breath, stiff in your pelvic tilts, or feeling wobbly in your balance, Kerry will help you with any specific positions, breathing techniques or moves that you’ve been struggling with.

Reiki healing with Leanne Try an individual Reiki session (a form of energy healing) where you will experience the benefits of reduced pain, tension and anxiety, increased feelings of wellbeing and energy.

Chat ’n Craftiness
Rounding off our Gathering of Hearts Retreat Day, Callie will help us to end our day of loveliness with something gently creative to help flood our bodies with endorphins, the "feel-good" chemicals in the brain. Let’s create something beautiful together. Chatting will be encouraged so you can really make the most of the opportunity to get to know each other in real life.
