Do your needs come last, have you run out of energy when it comes to your self care?
I know as well as anyone, how important it is to put my needs first. It’s so easy to get dragged into a boom-and-bust energy cycle. It’s easy to end up feeling exhausted because I’ve prioritised giving to others, rather than looking after my needs.
I’ve learnt that doing things to replenish my energy like having a bath, going for a walk, relaxing in front of the TV can help me rest but it isn’t enough.
When I started finding ways to preserve my energy by introducing healthy boundaries, I really started to notice a big change.
Before it was like pouring water into a bucket with holes in. Now when I pour water into my bucket, through prioritising my self-care, it doesn’t drain straight out, because I’ve found ways to plug the holes.
I’ve seen how improving your boundaries can make a huge difference to your energy levels and your self-worth. Better boundaries also improves how you relate to other people in your work and personal life, it helps to clarify expectations and leads to less internal conflict.
Practicing Yoga for years has made me super self-aware of my body, mind, emotions and habits. My yoga practice has been the foundation for me to change how I am with myself, the world and others. It highlights areas of my life that aren’t supporting me and gives me the insights of what I need to change.
I find my work so rewarding when I help other people make simple changes to their lives, help them to be on their onside and move through the challenges of day-to-day life.

What to expect
The retreat day is about slowing down, there’s lots of space and time to absorb the effects and information form the day.
The day is broken down into seasons, starting with spring where we let go of things, summer where we taking in nourishment, autumn where we reflect on habits we might want to change and winter where you allow your body and mind to totally rest.
People have said how much they feel supported during the day, that there’s space to talk or be quiet, that there’s space to share or not.
To me it’s really important for the day to feel like you’re in pressure free zone, you can listen to what you need throughout the day.
During the retreat you’ll experience the nourishing space where you give yourself permission to slow down and relax.
Bring self care into every day
My aim is to offer you space and time to relax along with offering tips of simple things you can do every day to help replenish yourself. I’ll offer a few different experiments for you to try, that can shift how you feel in your body and mind. These are designed to create fast and deep changes that stick.
So it’s not only about the experience have on the day. By the end of the day you’ll be able choose which tools you’d like to start practicing. Which are helpful for recharge your batteries and which are useful to preserve the precious energy you’ve generated. Helping you to gain a better balance in your day to day life.
I’m really passionate about supporting people to reconnect with their body’s wisdom, in simple, practical ways that are quick and effective. I believe when we live in harmony with our body, we can feel more in control and make choices that support what we truly need.
If you’d like to take a day out to deeply replenish your body and mind join me for a full-day yoga retreat at Swansea Wellbeing Centre.

How do I keep the price so low?
One of the reasons I’m able to keep the price low is by hosting the retreat at the beautiful Swansea Wellbeing Centre which once you’re inside, it feels like a sanctuary but isn’t in a grand setting. You’re not paying for the setting but for the quality of the space we create.
Compared to a 1:1 session at £45 an hour or 6 x hourly class at £42 it’s a bargain for a full day including food.
Do I need to be good at yoga?
Some people are concerned about their level of yoga experience.
This day is suitable for beginners as well as those who’ve got more experience.
During the posture practice, I explain things clearly and invite you to find the shapes that feel best for your body rather than being very specific about the form of each posture.
This can be really liberating for both beginners and people with more experience in yoga.
