Workshops with Dr. Peggy Regis Robinson
Workshops with Dr. Peggy Regis Robinson are carefully crafted to be informative, restorative and uplifting. As we continue to social distance, all workshops are available in both in person and online formats. Each workshop can also be tailored for your specific community and time constraints. Below are some workshop formats and themes that are ready to serve you and your organization.
Press Pause for Wellness
A half day retreat for groups of 20 or more
Dr. Robinson will give a 40 min. presentation on your wellness theme of choice, followed by a 15 min question and answer portion. Guided breathing and mindfulness, gua sha facial massage and acupressure exercises, and our wellness journal exercise will follow. The workshop will conclude with a group discussion of what a wellness mantra for your organization could be, and then either a group recitation or a group artistic creation of that mantra. Participants will be offered a special rate for a telehealth appointment with Dr. Robinson should they wish to consult her individually following the workshop. This workshop is designed to build community and to incorporate wellness into your organizational culture and identity.
The Mini Wellness Retreat
A 2-hour retreat for 15 people or less (can be offered for 20 or more with modifications)
Dr. Robinson will give a 20 min presentation on your wellness theme of choice, followed by a 15 min question and answer portion. Then as the group works on gua sha facial massage and our wellness journal exercise, Dr. Robinson will take mini consult sessions with those who wish to speak with her personally. This retreat will end with a group breathing and mindfulness mediation and a refreshing series of gentle stretches. A great way to end a work week!
The Long Lunch Refresh Session
A one hour more informal offering for any number of people
Dr. Robinson will give a 30 min. presentation on your wellness subject of choice. This will be followed by a 15-minute question and answer portion, a 10 min. guided breathing and mindfulness exercise and will finish with an acupressure and gentle stretching session to get you back to work feeling refreshed and cared for. This is a great way to make Wednesday just a little bit easier.
