300 guests gathered for the official launch of Life Retreat and Spiral Aloe Medical Spa’s first of its kind concept; ‘The Healing Hub,’ at Lourensford Wine Estate, on Saturday 3 November 2017.
VIP Guests, Media, Suppliers, and Sponsors were treated to healthy drinks, snacks, and Lourensford wines while enjoying a day filled with complementary activities. Offering the opportunity of a personal meet and greet with the Healing Hub team.
Two Mother-daughter duos founded the luxury retreat environment: Patricia and Samantha Taylor, in collaboration with Dr. Mothomang Diaho & Nthabiseng Shongwe. The Healing Hub consists of three wellness elements: Life Retreat Movement Studio, Lifestyle Shop, and Spiral Aloe Integrative Medical Spa.
A man of few words
Owner of Lourensford Wine Estate, Jacob Wiese, welcomed the Healing Hub and all their guests to the farm, and said “There are two ways to look at healing… The first is to retreat, to find refuge, to seek sanctuary. That is the closed way. Then there is another one, which is to open yourself up, to nurture, to take off and to invite in. We feel privileged to have joined forces with the families of the Healing Hub, which share the second vision of being open and engaged with the community. I feel proud to be a part of such a remarkable project.’
Guests indulged in the beautiful day’s itinerary, curated by Life Retreat’s Studio Director; Ryan Edmonds. Including Ballet Barre; Vinyasa Yoga, Tai Chi, Nia Dancing, Hooping, and Pilates, to name a few. Many people experienced a variety of traditional spa therapies amongst other services offered by integrative healing practitioners and resident functional medicine Doctors. A traditional Ndebele demonstration was presented in the newly launched, and absolute tourist must see, The African Room at Art Curator Gallery.
You can achieve all health and wellness goals in one place
The Healing Hub is aimed to inspire the community as well as visitors from around the world to experience the picturesque environment. The day ended with a full moon sound healing journey, which is Life Retreats’ monthly ritual, and must-try activity, to nourish and relax with sounds of tranquility, before departing.
2018 holds a unique space, for the Healing Hub to expand globally, offering wellness and yoga retreats in South Africa as well as around the world, exploring places like Bali; Australia; Mauritius and Thailand. Customized retreats are currently available in SA.
