The very word ‘Aequus’ is age-old and represents a state of equilibrium between opposing forces.
‘And every day, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling, “This is important! And this is important! And this is important! You need to worry about this! And this! And this!” And each day, it’s up to you to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say, “No. This is what’s important.’
With daily life pulling us this way and that, we can lose the balance in our body and of our mind. We are overlooking the importance of the needs of our body and becoming tired and wired. Aequus reset is a unique opportunity within Canberra’s Kingsborough village to reset and begin your bespoke wellness journey.
Your support begins before the reset weekend, helping you reinstate a harmonious balance 365 days of each year through subtle changes. Your reset experience combines seasonal, local, whole foods, massage treatments, sauna, movement, relaxation and vital wellness seminars in a low-tech environment.

THE AEQUUS MOVEMENT MASTERCLASS
‘If you don’t take care of your body, where are you going to live?’
We know that the body can pay the price of living in the fast paced 21st century. The Aequus Movement master class teaches rebalancing the body through, breathing, recruiting and strengthening specific leverage points within the body. Providing the opportunity for quality movement patterns to be learned and implemented resulting in freedom of movement. It also teaches the benefits of slowing down for the health of the physical body not just the mind.
THE AEQUUS RESET ‘6 CORE NEEDS’ DISCOVERY SESSION
In each area of your life you have core needs. When your core needs are met you feel clear, positive, grateful and that you are moving forward, excited for your future. You feel that you are steering your life. When your core needs are met to a low level you may feel stuck, frustrated with your recurring behaviour, unmotivated, your actions are not aligning with your goals and that something is off but you haven’t been able to put your finger on it yet. By identifying the areas in which your core needs are low, setting clear intentions and tangible goals we support you to have your core needs met across all areas of life so that you can begin thriving.
EMOTION IS PURELY ENERGY.. IN… MOTION, MOVING THROUGH THE BODY.
In a constant state of busyness, we don’t often create the time to understand the messages that our body is giving us. We can find ourselves repressing, avoiding and pushing our feelings to the side. The challenge with not acknowledging, processing and expressing emotion is that we can stay stuck in the physiological state of that emotion, storing it in the body on a cellular level, leaving us with heightened levels of stress, overwhelm, anxiety and eventually impacting our long term health. When we move through life in a heightened state we are far more reactive than responsive. Learning tools to understand and process your emotions will leave you feeling lighter, calmer and empowered in all areas of your life.
