I’d love you to join me on a journey deeper into what wellbeing means for you, and from that knowledge to find sustainable, practical ways to bring about positive change in your life.
Retreats are an act of loving service to yourselves, to your family and to the world.
Booking on one of my retreats will donate 50 – 80 trees in your name via TreeSisters, see their website here
The retreats provide a gentle way to cleanse, nourish, rebalance your system, allowing you to return to your self.
Your body is already an expert at detoxifying and restarting itself, what I provide is time, space, methods and practices to help you help yourself and find a more balanced lifestyle.
I run a number of seasonally tailored retreats throughout the year. The groups are small (no more than 18 people) so that I can spend time with each participant and for the period of the retreat we can spend time together as a living community.
These retreats don’t entail harsh regimes or fasting.
We will practice yoga together, exploring physical, mental and spiritual balance through movement and breath.
We will cook and eat together learning how food can nourish our bodies and balance our entire selves.
We will reconnect with nature and with our natural selves in the beautiful family run, ecological spaces that I have carefully chosen for the retreats.
Let yourself be nourished.
Let yourself go inwards and explore the places that need attention.
Let yourself be accepting, gentle and forgiving.
Let yourself acknowledge that this inner work is intrinsically linked to service beyond ourselves.
Let yourself be the change.
Teaching yoga is a joy I have had the opportunity offer guidance on the mat for the last 13 years. During the retreats I offer supportive playful classes suited to beginners as well as those who have spent more time on a yogic path. The classes focus on the liver and lymphatic system meridians using vinyasa and restorative yoga, and breathing exercises to regenerate and support the nervous system. We will also look at companion breathing exercises to help alkalize the body and stimulate the liver function.
We will finish the sessions with meditation or Yoga Nidra, an ancient form of deep relaxation to set intention and release deep tensions.

Beautiful, organic, seasonal, and where possible, local food is central to every retreat. Together we will prepare and eat both cooked and raw foods chosen to nourish the body and support mental and physical balance.
Nourishment is a core element of my work and the retreats include guidance and education of how you can use food to rejuvenate the self.
During our time together you will learn how to prepare superfood shakes, smoothies, cook healthy delicious food, including raw chocolate and turmeric shots (all sugar, gluten, animal protein free).
- Autumn is a time for slowing down; the perfect time to nurture and restore your body and mind.
- Winter is a time to strengthen the immune system, to reflect, heal and find mental clarity.
- Spring is the best season for a quick liver cleanse; for rest and rejuvenation.
- Summer it the perfect time for the body to cleanse fully, allowing for deep relaxation and regeneration.
I am a strong believer in the healing power of the natural world and I carefully choose beautiful, peaceful places to retreat. I am very grateful to be able to collaborate with the teams that run these places and share their values of sustainability, community and living in harmony with their surrounding environment. By supporting them I can provide you a perfect supportive environment for your relaxation and rejuvenation. See my upcoming retreats here
My retreats combine structure and space to just be; action and relaxation; opportunity for learning and reconnecting; opportunity for reflection. They start on Fridays at 4pm (it’s okay to be late, just let me know) and finish at 3pm on Sundays.
