What is Sweat Therapy?
In this two and half hour workshop, you will be provided education, guided gentle movement, meditation, breathwork and an opportunity for self-reflection and learning.
We have secured two of the best instructors in the area of wellness, fitness, mental health and mind/body connection, to bring you an opportunity to take part in this elevated form of self-care.
Expect two different sections of the workshop: First, a presentation on increasing our self awareness where you are welcome to write, journal or reflect throughout this section. The next section is a Rise Up fitness class led by Marlo Bruasse, ending with a somatic healing session guiding you to look inward and connect to your body.
This is not group therapy and you will not be asked to share, disclose or talk with anyone else at this workshop. We know that this work can feel vulnerable and scary, so will be honouring your own private learning style.

Education: How We Get Our Needs Met
In this presentation, Amber is going to provide education and information on various ways we consciously and unconsciously get our needs met. Many of us figure out how to do this in healthy and/or unhealthy ways, and Amber will take us through some of the patterns and reasonings for why we do what we do. We will learn about family patterns, roles we take on, and defensive and protective measures we engage in.
Bring a yoga mat, journal and something to write with, as well as comfy clothes to sit in as you learn and process.
This will be a private learning opportunity, therefore there will be no request or pressure to discuss or share with others in the room.
Instructor: Marlo Brausse
Movement: RISE UP Fitness Class
