Getting Unstuck – Removing Your Blocks
Break the cycle to find your vitality
and reach your goals
Peninsula Hot Springs, Moroccan Tent
27 October 2019, Sunday
Hosting this workshop is like a dream come true.
Truly. Working with my beautiful clients in one-on-one consultations as a naturopath is one thing. Being able to hang out with a whole group of like-minded people who want nothing more than to bring back the spark in their lives fills me with joy and so much anticipation that is on a whole other level.
This isn’t your average workshop. There’s no sitting around a stuffy conference room staring at worksheets and presentation slides. There’s no stale pastries and lousy coffee out of a thermos. Instead, you’ll find yourself in the Mornington Peninsula’s premier health and wellness destination being pampered as VIPs in the Peninsula Hot Spring’s Moroccan Tent.
This workshop was designed to honour your whole self, recognising the blockages that are leaving you feeling stuck and frustrated, and learning how to regain your passion, your identity, and your self-worth.
Together with my dear friend and colleague Nanette Abbott (Kinesiologist, Spiritual Counsellor, & Intuitive), my goal for this workshop is to help you uncover the conscious and subconscious blocks you have that are holding you back from all the wonderful things you can do with your life.
I’ll be right by your side throughout the day and going above and beyond to make sure you get everything you can out of your day. We’ll explore the vulnerable and real side of ourselves so we can show you what you can do to turn things around.
So bring a friend and share a soul-nurturing day out together that will nourish, restore, and empower.
“I first saw Julie and wasn’t sure what I was looking for except change… I was trying to quit smoking as well as wanting to change many bad habits. I got a lot more than I expected; a good detox, clarity, direction, and plenty of inspiration. I find Julie caring, supportive, and real. I fully recommend Julie to anyone looking for advice and guidance both on health and life!”

Workshop with Nanette
Nanette brings with her a unique ability to sense things both emotionally and physically. She’ll help you understand how your old belief systems, whether conscious or subconscious, are keeping you from reaching your goals. She’ll spend a full 2 and a half hours with you, guiding you through her tried-and-true techniques to getting unstuck and removing those blocks you’ve been struggling with.
After our time in the Moroccan Tent is done, we get to spend the rest of the day bathing in the mineral hot springs, nourishing our souls and refreshing our spirits. We have organised optional activities that you can choose to book during this time.
Aerial Yoga and Bathe (Optional Add-On)
Aerial Yoga involves using silk hammocks that hang from the ceiling to support the body’s weight as you alternate between challenging, playful and nurturing poses. This style of yoga incorporates yoga’s traditional aspects but involves a unique and profound experience of weightlessness that is gentle on the joints and nourishing for the whole being. The class ends in a swaying cocoon pose to bring you into a state of deep meditation and surrender.
Hot Springs Yoga (Optional Add-On)
Held in the new Amphitheatre and led by a Peninsula Hot Springs yoga instructor, join friends and fellow bathers in custom-designed pools for a yoga class like no other. The class combines the benefits of geothermal bathing with stretching, strengthening and balancing yoga poses. This 45-minute experience is open to all levels.
Fire, Ice and Bathe (Optional Add-On)
Be invigorated by the powers of hot and cold therapy in Peninsula Hot Spring’s state-of-the-art saunas and Ice Cave. Flow between hot saunas, sub-zero Ice Cave and Deep Freeze chamber, cold plunge pools and geothermal hot springs. You will learn and experience the key health benefits of this popular science under the guidance of trained instructors during the 45-minute workshop.
An Evening at the Spa (self-booking)
Our day together officially ends at 5pm, but you are welcome to stay to enjoy the sunset, twilight bathing, or book your own massage or spa dreaming experience. Peninsula Hot Springs Wellness Centre is open until 10 pm so take the opportunity to enjoy an evening at the spa to complete your rejuvenation and relaxation journey.
“After struggling with weight, allergies, and limited energy most of my life, Julie has given me the tools to take charge of my life and lose the weight I desperately needed to shed (and keep it off). I now have daily rituals (which are important to me!), eat fabulous food, and enjoy the active lifestyle I once longed for.”
Benefits of Hot Springs Bathing
A carefully selected venue to give you the best experience
Located in the Peninsula Hot Springs bath house, the royal moroccan tent is a beautiful and exclusive space that is private and perfect for our immersive workshop experience.
Supported by Science
Balneology is the scientific study of the therapeutic benefits of naturally occurring mineral waters. Balneotherapists affirm that trace minerals in hot springs and the stimulating benefits of highly mineralised waters combine to stimulate and promote health and wellness.

Australian therapists are increasingly turning to mineral water spas combined with massage for work-related illnesses such as stress, back-related injuries, and tenosynovitis. Rehabilitation for operations, accidents, and treatment for rheumatism, arthritis, gout, heart disease, and infertility have also benefited from hot springs bathing regiments.

Thermal therapy research has demonstrated that hydrostatic pressure in the body is increased when bathing in thermal hot springs. Bathing invigorates blood circulation and cell oxygenation, stimulating the body and enhancing its capacity to detoxify and improving digestion. Committing regularly to bathing can normalise the endocrine glands and invigorate the autonomic nervous system. (Image & information source: Peninsula Hot Springs)
