rita doherty is a meditation and wellness-teacher and marriage celebrant

Hi I’m Rita and I’ve been involved in the health and fitness industries for over 20 years and a marriage celebrant for the past 5 years. The Covid pandemic has deeply challenged all of our stress and coping levels! I am continually humbled with the many experiences of teaching individuals how to remain ‘Calm’ over this time.

I love offering my online weekly wellness classes, private Meditation sessions and personalized workplace packages, enabling people to find balance, strength and harmony in their life. My commitment to nurturing healthy minds and healthy spirits has lead me to becoming a Civil Marriage Celebrant and helping couples stress less before celebrating one of the biggest days of their lives!

My passion and commitment is to reduce your physical, emotional and mental pain, by creating a “wellness” lifestyle for you. My personal devotion to your balanced and holistic development, will empower and encourage you to live a healthier and happier life.

Having in-depth experience and knowledge including, Mindfulness Meditations, the Chiball Method™, Qigong, TCM and countless other studies in Wellbeing, I’ve created relaxed, personalized sessions to keep the mind, body and spirit aligned with the seasons, happy and healthy!

I have particular expertise in working with people’s energy levels, whether in a group as a couple or a private session. I find this work highly fulfilling, encouraging and developing my client’s awareness of their personal energy and their ability to direct it to improve their quality of life.

My love for long walks, bike rides in nature, a good vino shared with my husband Michael, grounds me and cleanses my energy. Lastly, spending time with my ‘fur babies’ (cats!), they continue to teach me the art of mindfulness.

Getting married is a very special time in your life. As your Marriage Civil Celebrant, I’ll assist in creating a unique ceremony, symbolic of your values, personalities and the love you have for each other.

I offer a variety of celebrant services to suit couples individual needs and desires, such as:

 Civil Marriage Ceremonies
Same Sex Marriage Ceremonies
Commitment Ceremonies/ Non-Legal
Renewal of Vows
Elopements / Legals Only Ceremony
Couples Relaxation Classes
Happy to travel to locations outside of Melbourne
