Chakradance TM ‘Rhythm for the Soul’ & Colour Therapy ‘Colour for the Soul’
Hi, my name is Shirley and I will be your CHAKRADANCE™ workshop facilitator and Colour Therapist. I am an accredited ChakradanceTM teacher; I undertook my teacher training in 2006 and since then have conducted many workshops with wonderful participants. Plus I have a Diploma in Colour Therapy; I completed my Diploma in 2004 and have run a colour therapy business since then.
Colour Therapy is a vibrational therapy in which colour is used to harmonise and realign the body, mind and soul. In a colour therapy session I use some or all of the following: Spectro-Chrome (coloured lights), coloured silk, crystals, Aura-soma and Reiki, depending on the needs of the individual. At the Retreat your one-on-one session will be specially tailored for your needs; be it a physical, mental or spiritual one.

Qi Gong and Yoga
Blessed I am to have lived a life rich in ‘journeying the inner landscape of my being’ as well as travelling this beautiful outer world.
Firstly the path of Yoga in many of its richness of styles, teachers, teachings and Enlightened Masters inspired and captured my heart more than 35years ago.
Teaching and sharing my knowledge of Yoga, the backbone of my professional life to students of primary and secondary schools, adult education, summer schools, hospitals, banks and offices, groups, classes and individuals.
Since Qi Gong (Chi Kung) was introduced to me 15 years ago, I found it naturally complimentary to my personal practices and undertook training with Masters of Qi whilst continuing to teach and share this valued and precious Mind/Body/Spirit medical and martial art form.
For me, Qi Gong offers the qualities of softness, strength, grounding, empowerment, focus, clarity, mindfulness and connectedness with Earth and Heaven.
Due to the fact that no props are needed, Qi Gong can be practiced anywhere producing immediate benefit to a practitioner from the easy flowing movements combined with the breath and mindfulness.
Apart from teaching on-going classes in both Yoga and Qi Gong in Albany and Denmark, I present mini-workshops including Qi Gong, Yoga and Relaxation for TAFE staff development days; as energy enhancement at conferences; ‘carers’ retreats from several government organisations and more recently for Festival of Voice in Denmark.
I also operate a practice for individuals in Bowen therapy in Albany and Denmark, with a background of some 25 years in mind/body therapies.
Saz has been conducting drumming workshops for groups for a number of years now. He has run team building drumming workshops, family drumming and community group workshops. Saz is an accomplished musician and performs as well as running Didgeridoo making and playing workshops for the youth in his community.

Teambuilding is her expertise, and the workshops are designed and tailored-fitted for the client.

Based on this, a workshop design is proposed for approval.
The Teambuilding Workshop is a combination of indoor and outdoor experiential activities meant to facilitate personal attitudinal shifts and team transformation, resulting in effective teamwork leading to renewed motivation, peak performance, and essence-based quality service.
