Our event will be set up on the riverside lawn on the main property. We have halls for workshops, beautiful indoor and outdoor space for dining; for sleeping accommodation we will be set up in camping and glamping so we can take advantage of the beautiful nature-based surroundings. However if you have a strong preference to sleep in the dorms that accompany the onsite facilities, please let us know as we can also happily accommodate this arrangement at no extra charge.
Check in is between 1 - 3pm providing 2hrs to set up camp and get settled.
Friday afternoon will see a settling in, intro to your weekend’s facilitators and support, an overview of the weekend and setting up of foundational learning for the weekend.

A theme throughout my clients is a preference for Yin as a restorative practice for recharging our ADHD batteries; in the evening Sarah will be teaching us why this is such a beautifully complementary relaxation approach for ADHD systems in particular.
Sunday morning will be optional movement practice, beautiful done for you brekki in nature, and a well rounded workshop putting the weekend's learning into a practical and individualised ways that you can take with you into the rest of your life! We will also be learning about energy management in our ADHD systems and will be able to take the learning from the weekend into this practical and reflective session.
Check out is at 1pm on Sunday.
We encourage you to drive yourself or carpool to the event. We can try and organise a group coach if there is enough need from one central location but this is not guaranteed as we may not be able to make it work cost wise if there is not enough need. We are happy to send out car pool PSA’s for those coming from similar locations.
This event is an empowering educational weekend of self-discovery designed specifically for women impacted by ADHD (pre, or post diagnosis – no judgement here on official labels). Please note, this is a woman-only event suitable for ages 18+.
Absolutely. This event will also be a gathering of other amazing like-minded women and we are confident you'll also make great connections over the course of the weekend.
We can accommodate between 30-70 women; we have designed the weekend and location so that we have an abundance of space both personal and outdoor, and have capped attendee numbers in this way to also ensure an intimate and comfortable atmosphere and learning space.
You're in good company! You may feel totally engaged and light as a feather one minute, and then down or anxious the next – the ever-changing internal landscape of our intriguing minds and bodies. This is a 100% judgement free space, and we want you to show up for YOURSELF first above anything else. Please feel free to honour your internal systems rhythm and tap in and out as you please. We’d love you to engage in all of the growth opportunities but key to this life on the incline is also the practice of looking after your own boundaries and working in flow with yourself; if this means taking yourself out of a conversation, meal or learning setting in the moment – then you go for it no explanation needed. We walk our talk at JLew HQ and the space we are creating is a fully safe one where everyone can be their authentic selves.
In our initial research, there was a large response interested attendees of which 100% were female. Several asked if it would be a female only event; given that no males responded as interested we were able to cater to this preference. Should males be interested in this kind of event we would be not only happy, but very happy to try to organise this so please holler on the contact page if that is you!

Sarah is amazing at catering to ALL levels in one class, and is super inclusive. Her style is not about the pose as much as listening to your body and your needs in the moment. We're so excited to have Sarah as she will be able to really showcase various ways that yoga can be a gateway into connecting somatically with your body and having mind body and soul working in congruence.
