Win­ter well­ness was the hot topic of the day at our sell-out

NADIA Mind, Body and Soul events held at the pic­turesque Boat­shed in Wellington and the ur­bane Gen­er­a­tor of­fices in Auck­land’s Wyn­yard Quar­ter.

Al­though both oc­ca­sions were blessed with sunny skies, read­ers still had cooler weather on their minds and wel­comed a 40-minute, en­ergy-boost­ing yoga ses­sion led by well­ness prac­ti­tioner Kelly Watt to get the blood pump­ing. Af­ter gen­er­at­ing some soul-warm­ing chi, it was time to hit the mat for a guided med­i­ta­tion be­fore af­ter­noon tea was served. Read­ers mixed and min­gled with the

NADIA team as they en­joyed fruit plat­ters with chia pots, ba­nana bread with pineap­ple curd, and lab­neh with pesto and sour­dough, all served with an as­sort­ment of de­li­cious teas.

Next up was the in­ter­ac­tive work­shop ses­sion with Nadia and our res­i­dent natur­opath, An­naliese Jones, who took a prac­ti­cal ap­proach to win­ter well­ness by demon­strat­ing how easy it is to make a sim­ple pesto us­ing greens from the gar­den, along with an ar­ray of herbal ton­ics that can help boost im­mu­nity.

This led nicely to our panel dis­cus­sion with Nadia, Kelly and An­naliese an­swer­ing ques­tions on top­ics rang­ing from sleep tips for new mums to how to treat hor­monal teenage skin, and what sup­ple­ments are the best to take (or do we even need them?). Mean­while, Nadia’s fresher-than-fresh pesto was passed around so ev­ery­one could snack to their hearts’ con­tent. It was the per­fect end to a per­fect day filled with ev­ery­thing needed to cre­ate that well-thy life we all strive for.

Much grat­i­tude goes to our lovely event spon­sors, Dole, Yo­plait, Aveeno and Ti Ora, and a big thank you to Eco Yoga Store for the use of their sen­sa­tional yoga mats, and to Awe­some Inc for pro­vid­ing read­ers with their own grat­i­tude jour­nals to take away with them. And, of course, the big­gest shout-out goes to all our in­spi­ra­tional read­ers who came along and made both days so spe­cial.
