I came away from this weekend rejuvenated & inspired to incorporate wellness into my daily life. The cohesive message, by all staff, to remember to breathe correctly was extremely helpful. Sounds simple, but it does take a conscious effort to pay attention to how you inhale & exhale.
I am using the breathing techniques I learned at the retreat. I’ve had a couple of stressful days at work and I was able to walk away and do my breathing. It helped!!
The feeling of a team caring for my needs throughout the weekend is what true healthcare should look like. I found the meeting with Dr. Carrie and the yoga therapy session invaluable. I left with 3-5 key themes/ideas to work with, instead of 15 different things I “need to do.”
