Restoring Peace & Clarity
Find the key to
nurture your mind, body, spirit.
Peninsula Hot Springs, Wellness Centre
15 September 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 Wellness Centre.
This workshop was designed to honour your whole self, recognising the place where your body and spirit are at, and learning how to flick the switch so you can find and maintain a sense of peace and clarity even if life throws the hardest curveballs at your feet and you find yourself struggling to keep up.
Together with my dear friend and colleague Perri Curtis (Clinical Hypnotherapist, Psychologist, & Neuroscience Lecturer), my goal for this workshop is to guide you through our tried-and-tested method to calm your brain down so you can truly bring peace and clarity back to your body and soul.
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. So bring a friend and share a soul-nurturing day out together that will top up your mind, body, and spirit.
“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!”

Bathing in Mother Nature
On arrival, you’ll enjoy some time bathing in the natural thermal mineral waters which flow from deep underground into pools at Peninsula Hot Springs. Connect with yourself and nature in the company of others. Awaken your senses and nourish your soul in nature.
Body Clay Painting
Experience the healing powers and cooling effects of clay with Peninsula Hot Spring’s signature body clay ritual, using a carefully selected series of detoxifying clays from around Australia, each with their own unique therapeutic benefits.
During this 45 minute workshop, our knowledgeable and engaging hosts will share stories about these benefits as you enjoy a simple and universal connection with nature.
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.
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.

Workshop with Perri
Perri will help you move past your conscious mind, access your subconscious, recognise how your behaviours and beliefs are formed and how they impact on your body and spirit. Tap into her expertise in Neuroscience and learn how to bring calm to your brain through all your senses.
An Evening at the Spa (self-booking)
Our day together officially ends at 5.30pm after the last workshop session, but you are welcome to stay to enjoy the sunset (around 6.10pm), 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.”

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)
