MakeItThroughSometimes it is good to allocate time for ourselves with our partners in order to reflect and refresh the bond we are living. The workshop is designed to balance focused couples work and learning with ample time for you to engage in leisurely activities or just kicking back and enjoying the natural scenery.

Teaching methods include presentations and examples, guided practices, individual and couples exercises, videos, live demos and group sharing amongst others. This is an interactive workshop which focuses on each couple’s individual experience. Expect an atmosphere of fun and inspiration where you will learn through the interaction with your partner.
