The Wellness Space Retreat – 26th – 31st March 2020

I am so excited to be teaming up with my wonderful friend James Lee Dawkins to bring you The Wellness Space. A fitness and wellness retreat designed to help you connect, reflect, learn and grow in a supportive environment. A space to help you find your true rhythm and not the one dictated by modern day life.



Not just fitness, not just wellness, but the perfect combination of the two, working in sync to deliver a true 360 approach program designed around raising awareness to areas that may need our attention, beyond just the physical. At times we find ourselves in a funk, or a cycle of bad behaviour and not thriving. Through a combination of Strength and Conditioning, Yoga, Outdoor Hikes, Meditation and Group Wellness Sessions, we enable you to reconnect with your natural rhythm, leaving you re-charged, re-energised and re-focussed.

We have chosen to hold our first retreat in spring 2020. The perfect time of year for growth and new beginnings. A time to set intentions for the year ahead. Bright, fresh, active days spent developing and nurturing body and mind. Cosy, restorative, log fired evenings with nourishing meals full of locally sourced vegetarian produce.

Our Home for the week will be a stunning 16th Century former Cognac Estate, nestled in a secluded rural location with far reaching views in the heart of France’s gastronomic region, an hour from Bordeaux.



Each day has been specially tailored to help you Connect, Reflect, Learn and Grow. A programme that features not only the physical, but an all round wellness approach.
