“Dani I wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for a wonderful weekend. My sister, Mother & I really enjoyed it as it was a chance for us to have time together and also to reconnect with ourselves, which was really lovely. You are a great teacher with a really approachable and relatable style, which was refreshing. I felt really grounded and reconnected after the weekend, so found it very worthwhile”

“A Physical, emotional and spiritual holiday, not just a weekend retreat”
“I have had a very calm and mindful week since the retreat which I am delighted about as I needed a boost to help me restore some mindful practice into my daily routine. I had such a great experience at the retreat and that was largely due to your warmth, energy and experience. You created such a lovely atmosphere and set the tone for a relaxing, nurturing few days.I will be keeping an eye on your website for your next one. Thanks again” Gill
