From Burnout to Revitalised!

This course is for you if you are busy, stressed, burnt out & in need of help and guidance to rediscover who you are, what you want out of life and how to go about readjusting your busy mindset in order to achieve the life that you dream of.

  • Do you “power through” your daily activities, schedule yourself into cycles of busyness & deplete your energy in places that have no real connection for you?

  • Do you feel addicted to work & busyness?

  • Do you over-ride your truth with a more “socially acceptable” answer or behaviour?

  • Are you unable to wind down, rest or relax?

  • Are you jaded from living in a society that normalises being so drained of energy?

  • Are you suppressing who you truly are, yet interested in reconnecting to your truth?

  • Are you ready to learn how to live life in a more energised and authentic way?

  • Do you want to hit the reset button on life but don’t know how to go about it?

Who is it for?

This course is for those who are on the brink of burnout. Those who juggle so many balls and don’t look after themselves. Those who don’t understand how they got to this point. Those who are there for everyone else but at a large cost to themselves. Those who know that there must be a better way to live this life. Those who want to be able to rest and relax but don’t know where to start. Those who don’t just want be to given another way to do a ‘to do list’ but want a deeper understanding of themselves and why they do what they do. Those who feel it is not ever going to be possible to get back to the type of life they had envisaged for themselves.


Course Description

Rest & Reset offers guidance, information & community support to return to your authentic nature & reclaim your inner vitality and zest for life. This informative course invites you to dive into a more pleasurable and connected way of living, without having to sacrifice achieving your goals. Societal pressures tend to instil certain beliefs about how we "should" be performing in everyday life. This is often contradictory to the reality of our actual physical, spiritual and emotional needs. It seems as if we have created a world where we need to disconnect in order to just get through the daily tasks of modern living. The result is anxiety, stress, burnout, illness, disease & a lack of meaningful connection. Rest & Reset offers you a framework to reclaim the balance necessary for your vitality, and to reinstate the value of rest into your routines. Reset your mind, body & spirit to a new flow & rhythm, one which is a more authentic expression of your truth. What does this mean? It means dropping the endless hustle. It means re-imagining rest & tapping into it's creative potential. It means harmonizing your yin & yang energy & rising to be beYOUtiful YOU. We have developed a holistic, Mind Body Spirit programme to guide you within to the very truth of who you are.

This programme offers the opportunity:

to understand our need for balance: mentally, physically, emotionally & spiritually.

  • to help re-introduce rest through experiential practices & resources

  • to elevate your thinking from scattered, worrying thoughts to a quiet mind

  • to understand & soothe your emotions

  • to understand and regulate your nervous system

  • to redefine your goals with deeper meaning & priority

  • to embrace change and transformation

  • to come home to your authentic self

  • to reconnect with yourself, others and the greater universal whole

  • to carve out your own pathway to intentional living

  • to feel empowered in your choices for your health, well being & a balanced life

“When you realise nothing is lacking, the whole world belongs to you”

Lao Tzu

Why should you do this course?

Stress, exhaustion and burnout are major leading causes of chronic illness and this is something we can control. It is within our power to change habits to improve the quality and length of our lives. Our bodies and our souls need a reset, like the reboot on our phones. We need to recharge our batteries and stop running on empty. Carina, Jannah & Vivianne have come together to create this offering of psychological, physiological & nutritional methods to aid your return to your vitality and reconnect with your authenticity. There are twelve distinct modules, each one led by either Carina, Jannah or Vivianne. Each module offers a theme of focus to learn & develop, bringing opportunities to discover and process the necessary changes that can be made to release the heavy burdens of modern living whilst instilling beneficial & re-energising practices. Together let’s support each other to revitalize our minds, bodies & spirits towards a more connected & intentional life.

  • Learn where, when & how to slow down & speed up to get the most out of your life.

  • Understand why we put up barriers to rest and self-care.

  • Recognise how proper rest, tailored to your personality and body type, can leave you more energised for the things that matter to you.

  • Define methods to support & empower yourself in a stressful world.

  • Identify how to increase contentment, purpose and serenity.

  • Practice how to get in sync with your own natural rhythm and that of the world around you.

  • Implement methods to regulate your nervous system in order to decrease stress.

  • Reinstate the Yin to your Yang by embracing your feminine energy, not denying it.

  • Establish how to let go of guilt and shame in our overworked culture and instead embrace choice and empowerment.

  • Rediscover that life that you always dreamed about.

What it is not?

This is not a quick fix. This is not just here to just tell you to rest more. This is not fluff! Our aim has always been for this course to be a deeply educational and personal learning experience. We teach the theory but also give practical experiential exercises and tools for you to implement in a way that suits you and your life. And we don’t leave out the spiritual aspect of true connection to self and to the world around us.
