Are you a small business owner who would like to be able to put more effort into your own self care & wellbeing?
Would you love the chance to be able to nourish yourself whilst still working to improve your business?
This summer, The Selfish Start Up Co. will be hosting a series of one day retreats for small business owners & entrepreneurs. We will be using yoga based workshops to find space in the body & mind, focussing on self awareness & blissful relaxation. Making the most of this creative headspace, we'll be bringing forward the challenges & inspiring successes of our own small business experiences, helping each other to explore new & exciting opportunities for growth & development.
Places are limited, so book your spot below & join us for a luxurious day of wellness & inspiration in the heart of Bristol.
Thursday 27th July 2017 10am – 4pm
Wild Wolf's Yoga St Nicholas St Bristol
Morning Yoga Workshop
Our day will kick off with a luxuriously long yoga workshop in which we’ll be creating space in both the body & mind. The session will be based on the theme of self-realisation, tapping into our own traits & habits to reflect on how they serve us in our business through physical postures, breath work & guided meditation. Absolutely no yoga experience is necessary - this session will be suitable for all levels whether you’re a seasoned yogi or have never stepped on a mat before!
Deliciously Long Networking Lunch
After working up an appetite during yoga, we’ll head downstairs to White's Botanicals for a nourishing lunch. This is the perfect opportunity to find out more about each others businesses in a chilled environment with no need to worry about the cooking or washing up!
Refining Your Blueprint
We'll be heading back into the studio for an afternoon of business creativity, where we will be delving into some common challenges faced by the self-employed, sharing experiences (the good & the bad!) & brainstorming solutions. Bring a notebook & prepare to get chatty.
Restorative Yoga Practice
We’ll end the day with a blissful restorative yoga practice in which we’ll work our way through a number of relaxing postures, tuning into the ‘rest & digest’ elements of the nervous system, leaving you ready to float on home.
Wear comfortable clothing you’re happy moving around in, you might want to bring a notebook along too for the afternoon session. All mats & props are supplied, but you are more than welcome to bring your own if you prefer.
If you have any further questions about the day or aren’t sure if this is right for you or your business please don’t hesitate to get in touch at email@example.com.
Are you running a small business in which you’re following your passion or working to solve problems & help others?
Can you sometimes end up feeling a little overwhelmed by the countless roles that you need to fulfil when you work for yourself – CEO, marketer, bookkeeper. website designer, sales-person?
Do you find yourself getting lost in the day to day running of your business & end up struggling to find the space you need to come up with or take action on the exciting aspects that will help you grow & develop your business?
On your ever-growing to-do list, does ‘self care’ find itself sliding further & further to the bottom?
Do you often land in that grey area between work & play where you want to switch off & take time for yourself but end up checking emails, doing jobs or worrying about your business?
Would you love to take the time out to look after yourself more, but either aren’t sure how or can’t quite find the time to fit it in?
Does the idea of a blissful mini break away sound like a distant dream because you’d end up feeling guilty for not working on your business?
Do traditional networking methods leave you feeling a little flat? You know you should be ‘growing your network’ but you’ve not found the right environment for it that is actually enjoyable…
This event might not be quite right for you if...
You are looking for a solution based 'training day' . We're not there to give you the answers - our workshops are about allowing you to create the space in your body & mind you need to explore the creative ideas that we know are lurking in there!
Your idea of networking is simply looking out for potential clients. Forget the concept of speed dating - we've chosen to hold longer events to enable you to get to know each other in slower time, building relationships, not just contacts.
You'd prefer to sit at the back quietly - to make the most out of our events prepare to share your experiences, both the good & the bad. Running a business can be a lonely experience & we hope to bridge that gap with a supportive community.
You are happy plodding along with your business at the level it is currently functioning. Our events are aimed at those who are inspired to grow & develop their brand or business into something bigger & better.
