“It is my intention to guide, nurture and support you to truly slow down, to find stillness and cultivate a greater sense of self-care. This workshop will reconnect and realign you will your inner wellbeing and educate and empower you to make positive shifts in your own life.”

Praise for the Sunday Slowdown

The Sunday Slowdown facilitated by Rosie O'Halloran and Laura Jane Hamlet has been previously held in London.

"I signed up for the Sunday Slowdown as I knew I needed to reconnect with myself and change my current habits. I was in a cycle of addictive work patterns and just couldn’t snap out of it. I realised I had allowed myself to be subtly influenced by what I thought I should be doing, instead of what I really wanted or needed. 

The day delivered so much more than a physical pause, it was a whole mind and body reset. Rosie and Laura’s soft but intentional guidance really helped me to draw back into myself and just let my body and heart do the talking. Rosie’s life coaching background and Laura’s naturopathic expertise provided both an emotional and health perspective to the workshops which left me feeling not only  physically restored but with a sense of clarity.

The attention to detail throughout the day was just beautiful and the wide variety of practices and exercises explored were deeply enlightening. This coupled with the uplifting presence and support of likeminded people made the day truly unforgettable."

"The Sunday Slowdown was such a gorgeous and gentle experience that also had real power. From the moment we arrived Rosie and Laura helped us feel so at home, and the space was incredible! The pace of the day was relaxed and helped us unwind and get back to ourselves, but we still managed to cover so much learning. The breathing techniques were a real highlight for me, I’ve been using the techniques really regularly since, they help me come back to myself when I am feeling panicky or on the edge because I’ve pushed myself too far. 

I had just come out of hospital before the Sunday Slowdown and the workshop felt like a real turning point in helping me feel better and reminding me of the importance of looking after myself. I can’t recommend Rosie and Laura enough!"
