Book my place

Physically I felt less achy and more energised. Mentally I felt in a really good place. I was quite emotional during the retreat too. I felt like I’d found me!

Loved the yoga, sound bath and chanting, very informative workshops, meeting everyone, I could probably go on and on, it was fantastic!

¬†I felt physically stronger, totally grounded, calm and yet like I could take on the world. Ready to embrace anything that comes my way. ūüėä
