Skin and Yin

Weekend Self-Care Retreat

October 11 - 13, 2019
Sky High, Mount Franklin, VIC

Treat yourself to a weekend of self-care bliss. Daily yoga, meditation and acupuncture treatments (including cosmetic acupuncture), healthy food prepared by a private chef and a venue that represents an iconic piece of modern architecture with 360 degree panoramic views to enjoy it from.

Yin in Eastern medicines is a the deeper quiet nourishment our mind and bodies need to feel centred, calm and connect with our inner selves and purpose. When our Yin is nourished we feel a sense of balance, our aches reduce, our minds stop racing and our productivity becomes focused and clear.

Yoga + Mediation + Cosmetic Acupuncture + Private Chef + Organic Wine

This exclusive retreat by Emma Maidment and Dr Abbie is the perfect opportunity to get away from the busyness of life and look after your body and soul for a weekend.

Yoga & Meditation by Emma Maidment

Daily yoga and meditation will be offered, the morning yoga will be very slow, watery yin-style flow into a meditation. In the evenings there will be a slow, still yin practice into meditation. We understand all too well the yang energy (busyness, the hustle, getting sh*t done) so the intention this weekend is to restore the yin within and bring about balance.

Cosmetic Acupuncture from TCM Dr Abbie Acupuncture

Cosmetic acupuncture brings out your natural glow and beauty, reducing fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness and other skin complaints. Based in Traditional Chinese Medicine, this holistic treatment delivered by sassy, wine-loving Dr Abbie Acupuncture will have you relaxing and rejuvenating all weekend.

Your Stunning Venue

Our home for the weekend is Sky High Mt Franklin, an iconic piece of architecture located on top of a ridge directly in front of Mt Franklin, boasting dramatic views of the surrounding hills and farmland.

This is a space for wellness and rejuvenation. With 360 degree panoramic views, you can come to enjoy the uniqueness of this property in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. Or dive a little deeper and use this stunning location to contemplate a bigger vision for your life. The home intimately engages with its context and climate, drawing on local traditions with the stone walls featured in the Mt Franklin district.

Friday

Unwind from the week, settle into our beautiful home for the weekend. Dr Abbie will be giving personal assessments upon arrival to map your personalised treatment plan for the weekend. You’ll then be invited to relax your body with a juicy restorative yin class with Emma. After practice, dinner is cooked by our onsite personal chef and to be served, along with organic wine (or kombucha if that’s your vibe)

Saturday

Sleep in, relax and roll into our yoga space for a slow flow and mediation with Emma. Afterwards breakfast prepared by our personal chef will be served. Eat slowly, enjoy the view, relax by the pool or read that book you’ve been meaning to read!

Dr Abbie will be scheduling treatments throughout the day for you. There will be the option of an afternoon hike around the gorgeous local area, if walking’s not your thing we suggest a nap! :)

We’ll say goodbye to the sun with a sunset restorative yin yoga and mediation session with Emma before settling into dinner cooked by our private chef.

After dinner, Dr Abbie will take you through a fun, interactive and let's be honest, hilarious workshop on face reading. You’ll learn what your lines mean, how to read other peoples and what wrinkles really tell us about someone's soul! It’s life changing to say the least.

Sunday

Moving slowly into Sunday with a slow flow with Emma, followed by breakfast and your final Dr Abbie treatments. You’ll head back home at your leisure feeling rejuvenated for the week ahead.
