Wholeness, Health and Leisure

Space for You

They offer a semi-structured healing respite week to people who could make use of the artistic and therapeutic facilities at Sancreed House. In a quiet setting they offer a flexible program of one session per day that is appropriate to different needs. It is a chance to relax and unwind and review current life issues and blocks as well as experience some deep healing and a sense of inner peace. Residential and non-residential sessions range from counselling to dance; from riding to meditation; and from reflexology to foot massage.

There is usually a ride from Penzance on a Sunday.

Sirens Surf

Traditionally surf schools have been male dominated and focused primarily on the needs of males. Many women of all ages have expressed that they wish to learn as single gender groups. Often there is less sense of embarrassment, or pressure of male dominance and this leads to a more relaxed and fun environment. The aim of Sirens Surf is to support women and girls to feel empowered and inspired by their own abilities. To be challenged by what the sea and what Cornwall has to offer in a safe supportive environment. There are small group sessions of a maximum of 8 females at a time to be able to give everyone the attention and time they need.
