My mum and I were treated to RedBalloon’s Mother’s Day Retreat at Urban Yoga, a modern yoga studio in Surry Hills, Sydney.

We were welcomed with cups of their soothing house-blend tea, before we entered the peaceful candle-lit practice room.

Fiona took us through a simple partner yoga sequence. It was very doable for beginners like Mum and I – such a fun bonding experience. I think we got an extra work-out for our abs because we were giggling the whole time!

We were then treated to a scrumptious and nutritious morning tea of fresh fruit and veg, dips, cheeses, healthy baked goods and cold pressed juices.

The next event on the agenda was a special talk from Michelle of A Healthy View, who enlightened us on how we can improve our health and wellbeing simply through nutrition.

We finished the day with some full-scale pampering: makeup demonstrations from Napoleon Perdis, cupcake decorating with Sparkle Cupcakery and making our own terrariums to take home.

Thank you to RedBalloon for such a relaxing, indulgent experience!

Treat your mum with one of their experiences this Mother’s Day – with 3,500 experiences Australia-wide, there’s one to suit every mum.

Indulgence packages, such as massages and facials, rose in popularity by over 84% in 2016 with outdoor activities and gourmet experiences not far behind.

But if you’re really looking to spoil mum this year you can’t go wrong with RedBalloon’s new product offering, Urban Wellness Retreat, where mum can enjoy yoga, indulge in some whole foods and attend wellness workshops.

Naomi Simson, RedBalloon Founding Director, said “Mother’s Day is a really special day. It is a time to thank our mums and show them how much we appreciate everything they do for us throughout the year.

“We’re seeing a clear favourite among Aussie mums for shared experiences. At RedBalloon we’ve witnessed a spike in our ‘for 2’ experiences, proving that mums just want to spend some quality time with their children on Mother’s Day.”
