Spark the Fire Within

is about emerging from your winter shell, shaking off the cold weather and reconnecting to that bright, light and joyful part of YOU. 

It's about loving and nourishing your body through this cold weather and giving it pleasure, joy and lightness so you can feel more motivated, energised and inspired.

It's about coming together as women and celebrating our femininity and our passions, fostering our sisterhood, and supporting each other on our journey as female trail-blazers and entrepreneurs. Because, it's always easier with friends!

Imagine feeling energised, inspired, light-hearted and all loved up!

And making authentic connections to help support you on your entrepreneurial journey

Wouldn't that feel good?

Perhaps you've been feeling like:

  • Your body is tired, restless and just feels blurrgh!

I hear you! With our nourishing program for the day, your body will feel both energised and relaxed and loved up to the max! Plus you can choose to join us and treat your body to a soak in the Peninsula Hot Springs afterwards.

  •  You really need some time out for yourself and with women!

I get it! There's nothing that is more yummy than a dedicated self-care day surrounded by a supportive sisterhood. That's why this retreat is a full day from 8-4pm and is strictly women only. 

Plus you have the option to join us for a remedial soak at the Peninsula Hot Springs after the event.

  • You've got a case of the Winter Blues and are feeling unmotivated!

Don't worry - I have a fix for that! Through our heart-warming activities plus plenty of laughter and the presence of good company, you'll be shaking off those winter blues and stepping back into your sparkle with renewed energy and motivation.

  • You're just a bit... well... bored and you feel flat!

What better way to cure that than a day retreat meeting new people, moving your body and relaxing it with some yummy self-care! You will leave this retreat feeling rejuvenated and with some tools to keep you sane through the winter!

So Why Should You Join us?

Well to put it simply, this day is the perfect way to shed that winter heaviness and lethargy, reenergise your body, mind and soul and truly connect with some new people!

If you are guilty of neglecting your self-care and are feeling a little burnt out, then you have to be here!

You'll leave feeling rebalanced, inspired, supported and thoroughly loved-up!

And what better way to do that than with a group of like-minded women to share the day with?

As you stand smiling from ear to ear, hand across your chest, you feel the warmth radiating from your body and your breath finds a steady flow... you feel energised but relaxed and you're so glad you came.

 

Your body is melting from all the care you have given it today and dam it felt good to move!

"Thank-you!" whispers your body.

That long list of 'have-to-dos' and that heavy feeling, you had before you came, seems to have disappeared. That dancing must have let some stuff go! 

You smile even more as you recollect the inspiring conversations and the instant connections you felt today with these powerful, on-purpose women.

Oh! And the laughter!  It feels so good to laugh SO much!

You haven't felt this good in a long time.  You savour this moment with one more full, breath before opening your eyes slowly.

You look around at the circle of women you are in and feel the love and happiness flowing

You look at them once strangers and now friends

Welcome to Your Day

How does feeling  revitalised, refreshed  & relaxed sound like?

And with warm company,  inspiring conversation & a program designed to uplift your body, mind & spirit...

 

Would that make this day worth it?

I think so!

First and foremost this day is about self-care and giving back to ourselves, which which so many of us women entrepreneurs fail to do! The day's program has been carefully thought out to provide you with self-nurturing and light-hearted activities, to get you out of the funk and into the dynamic woman that you are.

Secondly, this is also a day to make authentic connections with other like-minded women.  There are generous break times allotted to provide plenty of time to connect with the women around you.

You can think of this as a 'natural networking' event.  It's not that dress up, bring- your -best -self, make- your- pitch, flash- your- business- card type of event.  

Spark the Fire Within is all about doing things that organically bring us together and making real connections without agenda.

You will leave with a few tricks up your sleeve to maintain your good feels long after your leave and  you will also have a sister-hood of women who are just like you -entrepreneurs with passion and heart.

Plus I'll be with you all day, so you can pick my brain for any burning questions you have to keep vital through the winter in your body, mind and spirit!

I want you to walk out of the day feeling light, relaxed and all loved up!

Nik (or Nicola) loves to move + dance and is passionate about her work empowering women in business! 

Her love of the sea, the outdoors & a good adventure, drew her across the seas from New Zealand to the Mornington Peninsula.

Nik's work focusses on her passion to inspire and empower women to not just be comfortable with, but LOVE being in and moving, their fabulous bodies. In her journey to become more aware, loving and joyful in her life, she has found the body to be an incredibly generous and venerable sage to better understand and overcome personal life challenges.

Nik has a unique approach to life and business coaching.  She whole-heartedly believes that the body can be  using the body as a gateway to tap into our potential and finding freedom and success in both our lives and in business. She uses embodiment techniques to make concepts, more than just mind-play.  She guides you to make them concrete in your physical reality, via the body first.

From the way it works beautifully, to the disrepair it can endure, she sees the body as an incredibly beautiful and fascinating gift, that we are each given.

Nik is constantly exploring different ways that she can become more self-aware but she always returns to the magic of movement. Her biggest passion is to dance.

Through all of her studies of movement so far, dance continues to be the most transformative movement modality she has come across.

 

Dance is both challenging and empowering and lights up the spirit like no other!

 

Nik is a passionate Nia teacher, creator and facilitator of  DisSolve Dance, a holistic massage therapist and Confidence & Empowerment Coach for women solopreneurs.  Her passion to guide people to dive deep into their (literal) body's of knowledge, compels her to share her transformative work through movement retreats and workshops internationally.

Nik delights in witnessing people blooming into the amazing person that they are! She gets excited seeing the unravelling of the old stories and the power of the new ones that people can create for themselves.  And she absolutely loves seeing the sparkle return in people's eyes and the joy and light being reignited in people's lives.

 
 
 

FAQs


FAQs


Got a question?

See if it's answered below! If not, do not hesitate to contact me via email on nicola@nikchung.com

 

  • I'm not an entrepreneur but the day sounds SO AMAZING and exactly what I need - can I still come?

Yes everyone is welcome! The prime focus of this day is to give yourself some time out for self-care and to reconnect with yourself.  It doesn't matter if you are in business or not, the day will be focussed on giving back to yourself first and connecting on an authentic level.  This is not a networking event in it's traditional sense, but a way to genuinely meet like-minded people.  The activities that we will use will not be focussed on just business, but on self-care first and how this radiates out on your life.

 

  • I don't dance and I'm a little scared of doing it... but the rest of the day sounds so good...

I can understand your hesitation, but the dances are easy to follow and are a tool to use for us to all loosen up and get back into our real selves and ignite our inner JOY by dancing.  As these dances are tools for self-connection, everyone will be focussed on themselves and wont have a chance to look at you - trust me! 

If you are still unsure, you can look at it this way.  Dance is a fantastic way to empower that inner leader and authentic self to come to the foreground.  If you are struggling with moving freely, this can be restricting you to move freely in your life (and your business).  You can think of dancing as a great way to see where your blocks are and use it to move past them so you can expand in your life (and your business).

Please don't let your fear of dancing (or being seen) stop you from coming along! I know that it will be a truly transformative practice for you!

 

  • I am an entrepreneur - is this a networking event?

Yes and no :) .  First and foremost this event is about your self-care.  As entrepreneurs we can sometimes neglect this part of our life and suffer from unnecessary stress and burnout.  The program is designed to naturally connect everyone together.  So as you can think of this as  'natural networking' - just like you would do if you were to meet someone who you wanted to be friends with, you would go in with a genuine connection with no agenda.  This isn't your typical networking event, where you will be pitching yourself and  your top priority is to make business partnerships (although that will likely happen anyway) so please keep that in mind.

 

  • I have a male friend who would love to come - is he welcome?

This day has been specifically designed for women only, so unfortunately he cannot attend.  When women come together, there is a special and powerful energy that is generated and this retreat is created to do just that!  There may be other events in the future that are mixed so please keep that in mind!
