Join us for a self-indulgent weekend of yoga and nutrition.

Focusing on giving you time to relax, recharge those batteries and reset after the busy summer months, this yoga and nutrition retreat is the perfect mini break for you because you deserve a little TLC.

What better way to do this then in the scenic Peak District with yoga, meditation and healthy eating, not to mention fresh air and open fires. Tempted? We promise it will be a weekend not to miss.


Your home for the weekend

Situated within the rolling hills of the Peak District National Park, The Cattle Shed is a luxurious contemporary converted barn.
It features an open plan lounge with a log burning fireplace to cosy up in the evening and breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside to take in the sunsets.
You will be sleeping in a splendid twin room complete with ensuite bathroom. 
All of the rooms are based on two sharing but don’t worry, 90% of people come on retreats on their own. Look at it as an opportunity to meet some like minded individuals or why not bring along your bestie to share the experience with.

The most un-yoga yogi you are likely to meet. I don’t hug trees (or not often) I love to drink wine, and generally don’t take life (including yoga) too seriously. Life is about finding your balance. My philosophy is simple: treat others as you would hope to be treated; A smile costs nothing; Show up to the mat and practice as often as possible without judgement of yourself or others; Live for today as tomorrow is never guaranteed; and don’t forget to have fun along the way! Simple. My former life was as a costume designer for film and television and whilst I had some amazing jobs and incredible experiences something just seemed missing for me.

Having practiced yoga since university on and off I decided to embark on increasing my own knowledge and understanding of the practice. Not really sure if I would like to teach or not. There was never a lightening bolt moment. However, I am now a registered yoga alliance teacher holding qualifications with the Sivananda Vendata, Kerela, India (200hours), 280hr kids and partner yoga training with Rainbow Kids, and prenatal and post natal yoga certificates with Birthright UK. I absolutely love teaching.

In the words of Marie Antoinette “let them eat cake”, which is fitting because I was once described as a nutritionist who is keeping it real.
I chose nutrition because I love food, yes, ironic I know, and I was also kind of narked with the diet and wellness industry being full of fads.
Local, honestly produced raw ingredients or “real food” is all we actually need to tick all the nutrition boxes, so I’m here flying the flag for fad-free, easy to stick to but science-based nutrition advice.
The majority of my work focuses on optimising wellbeing through food. Yes it’s a fancy pants statement, but ultimately it just comes down to making you feel better through some clever food choices, supplements and a bit of private blood/stool/urine testing if required.
I hold talks that debunk diet myths and actually give you an idea of what the latest science is telling us. It’s nerdy but I do my best to add in terrible jokes.
During the summer months you may catch me on stage at Food & Drink Festivals or Country Fairs, carrying out nutritious cookery demos.
I also write the odd recipe, magazine article and speak at conferences, all in the name of telling the world that nutrition is actually just about adding in more nutrients, not about going on a diet.
In case you got this far and wondering where my credentials come from, let me reassure that I’m both BANT and CNHC registered after completing a 3 year degree-equivalent in nutritional therapy.
