Running a business in an industry as acutely stressful as the wedding industry can quietly chip away at our inner strength resulting in “burn out”. To redress this balance, we strive to restore your health through stress analysis, mindset, nutrition and the healing of the spirit. 

During our retreats, we’ll share tricks, tips and tried-and-tested strategies to help soothe you through times of stress. We’ll share our own experiences of highly challenging professional episodes and coach you in the art of self-preservation.
Through the power of mindfulness and yoga, we’ll help you connect not only with yourself, but with those around you who have the potential to help you soar higher and reach even your loftiest goals while maintaining your physical and mental wellbeing.
