About The Event

Elise Tassell & Lisa Cuerden invite you to explore heart, body & soul through yoga, movement & chocolate.


'Cacao is a wake-up food. It wakes you up to your full power, to who you truly are, to the potentiality of the moment, to the infinite & abundant nature of the universe'- Kate Magic (Raw Rood Expert)

For those who haven’t heard of cacao before, cacao is the purest form of chocolate!

We’ll be opening this retreat with a cacao ceremony, where we will drink the highest quality ceremonial grade cacao together, to assist us to open our hearts and connect more deeply to ourselves and to others. We’ll be using the ceremony will be to set intentions for this retreat day & beyond.

You can read more about why cacao is used in ceremony, it’s history & the effects & benefits


Free your body, free your mind and connect to your true self - taking you on a journey into your body through a flowing, freeing vinyasa class.

The cacao will assist you to step out of your head and into your heart & body not worrying about how you look but focusing on being completely present to how the body wants to move that very moment - how your body really feels.


Once we’ve warmed our bodies with yoga and got the cacao flowing, we’ll make our way into a movement practice- you will be guided to explore your body in new ways. Often in life we spend our days moving in linear ways-walking/ exercising/ working, this practice opens us up to the non- linear. Our movements don't have to make sense, they don't have to be 'beautiful' - not in the conventional sense. They are our unique expressions in physical form. There are no steps to learn & no way to get it ‘wrong’.

Naturally Sweet

A healthy Vegetarian lunch + treats will be provided on the day

We will finish the day with a yin yoga and relaxation practice to observe, nurture, sooth, calm and reground ourselves then ending with a closing circle, to regroup and come together.
