WHAT TO BRING:
Weather here in Delphi Valley can be unpredictable. It can be very hot on a sunny day and cold and rainy on a bad day, so it’s always a good idea to check the weather report right before you travel.
We recommend bringing running shoes with a good grip, sun cream, a bathing suit (for the hot tub / spa / pool), a waterproof coat, loose clothing or gym gear and enough layers just in case of cold weather. During the meet and greet we will go over the schedule and weather report for the weekend so we can adjust the schedule a bit if necessary.

Workshop 3: Movement 360 –led by Complete Athlete founders Sherry and Brigid. This is the Complete Athlete signature workshop, focusing on the fundamental techniques and movements of running, while cultivating a mind, body and breath connection. We guide you through a flow that will move your joints through their entire range of motion, stimulating the connective tissues while also increasing strength and mobility.
The core elements of this class are
- Learning how to find postural alignment and build postural strength
- Developing your individual functional movement patterns
- Learning how to fire and improve the function of the body’s deep layer stabilising muscles
- Improving the coordination, balance, strength and mobility to enhance athletic performance
Workshop 4: Myofascial Release – led by Sherry and Brigid. Fascia is the living seam system that links everything inside you together. This workshop is designed for deep body work and to unlock fascial restrictions using therapy balls to knead out tightness. This deep tissue work softens fascial restrictions and leaves you with a feeling of spaciousness, an ease in joints muscles and your fascia.
