The Kaizen Wood Element Retreat February 25th-28th 2022 


Our Wood element retreat is one of a series of five retreats based on the five elements which are (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water)


Based on traditional Chinese medicine the law of the five elements show us how the structures and systems in our bodies are connected to each other, how we are connected to our environment and the natural world and how our world is part of the greater universe. Many people today have lost this deep connection to nature and no longer are able to feel this truth resonate in their being. The Universal principle of connection still exists nonetheless.

In this Wood element retreat we will take you on a journey to clear all wood element imbalances. Wood is associated with the colour green in TCM. It represents growth and expansion. It’s also associated with a windy climate.

Organs:  Gall Bladder and Liver

Season: Spring


According to traditional Chinese medicine, the Liver is the organ that is most affected by excess stress or emotions. Feel it, express it, but don’t hold it!

Do you get chronic headaches or dry eyes? 

Are you often irritable?

Have you been needing an emotional cleanse? 

Do you get bad PMS or irregular periods?

Have you been procrastinating?

Are you feeling stuck in context of your career path?

Do you have digestive issues? 

Join us if you are ready to birth into a new phase in your life, leaving toxicity and stagnation behind.

The essence of the Wood element is all about TRANSFORMATION and BIRTH. It is about implementing boundaries and asserting ourselves (in a non reactive way). It is about creating structure to have growth in your life. It is about allowing yourself to have spring phase in your life.  It is about releasing toxic emotions, thoughts or behaviours that are blocking your connection to your soul self. Once connected more to your true self you can have clarity and move towards creating that which you desire.


When the wood element within our bodies is balanced we become natural leaders, our mind finds stillness and we are in a better position to make better judgment. We have a more flexible approach in life. We can easily move towards what we desire.


Join us on a life changing and inspiring weekend.


Everyday life has a funny way of getting in the way of what’s really important to us. Rarely do we get the chance to unwind and provide our bodies and minds with the love and care it needs.

Three days of Kinesiology, NLP, yoga and process work is all you need to relax, rejuvenate and get back in touch with yourself.


"Be like a tree in pursuit of your cause. Stand firm, grip hard, thrust upward, bend to the winds of heaven, and learn tranquility"


The team at Kaizen are excited to invite you to our transformative wood element retreat. Leave your everyday stresses and worries behind as you fully immerse yourself into a weekend of self-exploration and complete renewal.

With daily yoga and healing sessions to release stagnant emotions and Kinesiology healing to shift your energy blocks, this 3-day intensive retreat will leave you feeling like a brand new you!
