Nourish the body, soothe the mind and take a breath…

In the heart of London, an oasis of feel good vibes welcomes you into this day long immersive experience.
Explore practices and tools that nourish and balance both body and mind.

At the start of a new year we often times set ourselves up with slightly unreachable goals and resolutions that demand a lot of change. Social media, magazines, press articles all with the ‘NEW YEAR NEW YOU message’, it’s no wonder that mid Jan we start to feel overwhelmed, under pressure and let’s face it, the resolutions tend to take a downward slide!

So we’re inviting you to take a breath and join us for a day of self care tools and nourishing practises, fill your cup with the good stuff to help you balance and thrive.

Reconnect with your body through explorative uplifting yoga flows and somatic sensory movement. With breath work to soothe the nervous system and the peaceful magical notes of the crystal harp and alchemy bowls taking you through a journey of sound and guided meditation. Embrace the holistic benefits of reflexology and indulge in the sensory experience of touch in a skincare workshop with facial self massage.

A hearty healthy brunch, delicious sweet treats and snacks all included. Teas, snacks refreshments available throughout the day, plus a gift to take home.

She combines the ‘Nerve Reflexology’ approach with ‘Reproflexology’ (endocrine balancing reflexology) to reduce pelvic pain and address symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances.

Guest Hosts for the Day : Laura Paine

Laura trained at the Natural Gourmet Institute in New York, a cooking school with a strong focus on the role of food as medicine and the environmental impact of our choices. This has been followed by almost decade of experience in retreat cooking, always with a focus on sustainability and community.

Her food philosophy is one of abundance. This can manifest as an abundance of seasonal produce, of flavour, of texture and of nutritional value. She doesn’t believe in denying or depriving yourself when it comes to food, rather that when we introduce new deliciously nutritious elements, often the things that haven’t been serving us naturally fall away.

Retreat : Ibiza, Balearic Islands (June 2024)

June 7th – 13th | 6 nights

Scenic gardens filled with olive trees, sunflowers and colourful Ibizan plants surround this spacious beautiful house, our retreat home from home. Summer in Ibiza is known for its endless parties, festivals, and vibrating nightlife. However, there is also a very different side to the island, a space to slow down, to breathe and soak in the holistic undercurrent, making the island the perfect place to create some inner balance.

As we transition from the most yang season of the year to a quieter period, we invite you to spend a few fabulous days dedicated to yourself…. ‘A moment to breath’. We will practice twice daily, with uplifting yoga flows, soulful and somatic movements, and restorative and Yin practices. A selection of optional activities will be offered, including a healing sound bath, workshops, guided walks, journalling, and face yoga, with plenty of time for yourself to relax by the infinity pool or at one of the nearby beaches.

Both Cala Longa and Cala Olivera beaches are just 3km away. You can choose to spend a full day by the sea, with a personal picnic hamper provided to take with you. A serene dedicated treatment area is set aside where therapists can enhance your stay with holistic treatments including facials, massage and reiki.
