Join Us for Learning, Leisure, and Renewal.

It's your opportunity to step away from the daily grind and rediscover the incredible person you are.

YOUR GUIDE: Christine Dyan Thomson

Christine Dyan Thomson is the owner/founder of the Manipura Centre. Most would describe her as a Registered Dietitian, a Mindset Coach, and a Certified Life Coach. But she describes herself as an Advocate that empowers health professionals by equipping them with the skills and the mindset to take 100% personal responsibility for what they want from their lives & careers.

She believe that health professionals, specifically Registered Dietitians, should learn new & innovative ways to support their clients that go beyond basic nutrition counseling. It's about understanding the deeper layers of human behavior, building trust and connection, and helping individuals unlock their inner potential for lasting change. This belief has driven her to create a retreat environment where learning these foundational coaching skills becomes not only practical but also transformational.

At the Manipura Learn & Leisure Retreat, She'll provide the perfect setting for this journey. The combination of learning new skills and reconnecting with oneself and others in a leisurely and renewing atmosphere sets the tone for growth and empowerment. It's a place where you can expand your horizons, build lasting connections, and reignite your passion for your work.

We invite you to join her on this transformative experience, where you'll not only enrich your professional toolkit but also rediscover the incredible person you are. Because true wellness goes far beyond dietary recommendations; it's about fostering lasting change through empathy, understanding, and genuine connection.
