The team of 12, travelled from Birmingham, to experience an exclusive 24-hour corporate retreat. The programme was completely tailored to their requirements, with the team’s objectives considered. These included having some strategies to take away to help manage stress and anxiety.
Upon arrival, a delicious and healthy breakfast at the Tudor Farmhouse was served to the group. The team were then taken to the Wellness Yurt for their first session of the day. An hour-long Qigong/Tai Chi class enabling them to focus on their breathwork and release stress.
After layering up, it was then time for some fresh air with a two-hour guided Mindful Walk to the woods. A deliberately slow walk in relative silence enabling participants to focus on the beautiful surrounds. This was followed by a relaxing Forest Bathing and Dove Release session. The latter enabled the team to ‘let go of something which no longer serves you’. From the stunning hills and views, they were escorted back down to help feed the animals outside the Yurt, before tucking into a delicious homemade lunch.
In the afternoon, we called upon more of our Wellness Experts. Health & Wellbeing coach Harriet Saxton, delivered a brilliant one-hour breathwork tutorial. This provided the team with easy to implement tips on every day coping strategies, using the power of the breath. Reiki Healer Tracy Gilmour finished the day. The team found this part so relaxing that a few of them fell asleep! Homemade bakes and cakes helped wake them all up!
It was then time to check into the accommodation, including all of the ensuite bedrooms and some of the Glamping Pods with private hot tubs.
A choices of meat and vegetarian dishes had been chosen as part of their three-course evening meal. The team spend the rest of the evening, chatting, eating, drinking and bonding in our beautiful Farmhouse Morning Room and Dining Room. The next day, a Full English Breakfast was definitely on the menu, which we are told was more than appreciated, before waving them on their way. The feedback from the Team Manager has been excellent and they have since referred Wootton Park Wellness to other companies.
