Thursday 20 – Sunday 23 August 2015, Brecon Beacons, Wales.

I have just been confirmed as an In-House Massage Therapist with Wild Wellbeing  in the Nature Nuture Healing Area at the Green Man Festival.

Leap, walk or crawl into the new Wild Wellbeing’s space at this year’s Green Man and discover our rejuvenating program featuring a vast selection of yoga classes, treatments and facilities all focused on your inner wellbeing.

Nestled just beyond the gentle gaze of the Green Man in a secluded glade of ancient Welsh oak trees, Nature Nurture is the perfect place to mellow out, stretch and release those last drops of stress.

Revamped for 2015, the Nature & Nurture healing garden is open from 7am to 11.30pm every day offering dedicated treatments – from qualified therapists, exercise classes (including yoga and Pilates) to simple, carefree indulgences such as a glass of wine in one of our glorious hot tubs.

The family-oriented yoga program runs from 8am until 8pm, for those seeking invigoration or to wind-down. There is something for everyone; acro-yoga, beginners yoga, family classes, kids sessions, pregnancy yoga, hot power yoga and restorative yoga.

Enjoy the luxury of pre-booked ‘Nurturing Relaxation Massage’, by a highly qualified therapist using natural massage oils or indulge in a treatment from the ‘Alternative Pitch Therapies’ – all of which can be pre-booked here.

Full 2015 line up information can be found here.

The Sanctuary (curated by Wild WellBeing) at Wilderness Festival gets a mention in the Tatler Spa Guide 2015. I’m really proud to be part of this great team of therapists and yogis.  Roll on summer!

I’m back from deepest Oxfordshire where I had the pleasure of working for Wild Wellbeing in the Sanctuary area of Wilderness Festival.  A perfect space for people to immerse themselves in peace and tranquility in order to feed their body, mind and soul.

I love this Festival and it’s always a highlight of my annual calendar.  There is a huge mix on offer and it’s certainly more than just music.  Theatre, arts, talks, workshops, craft, wellbeing, lakeside spa, adventures, magical experiences, banqueting, good food, chilled vibe and great people.

It’s meant to be a holiday rather than a festival,” Jo Vidler, creative director and co-founder of Wilderness told Positive News, “A holiday experience with amazing entertainment around it.”

I was working as an in-house therapist offering Lomi Lomi massages in the Sanctuary.  I love working outside, nature brings an added dimension to the treatments.  The Sanctuary team was amazing, it’s great to work with such highly regarded therapists and yoga teachers in this special space.

It’s not all work and no play though.  Festival highlights for me included Burt Bacharach, Jessie Ware, London Grammar, dancing at the “Village Hall”, dancing to a soul band in the pouring rain, the fire spectacular, bathing in the light of the supermoon (the closest and largest full moon of the year) and accompaniment from the Friends of the Earth Busking Stage whilst we were massaging.

Here’s Vogue’s “Postcards from Wilderness Festival”, a picture diary of the weekend including a special mention for the Sanctuary!

Thank you Wilderness, it’s been fun.  Until next year…

Thursday 7 – Sunday 10 August 2014, Cornbury Park, Oxfordshire.

Not long now to go until my favourite Festival… Wilderness is the multi-award winning 4-day festival combining live music, contemporary arts and an array of theatre, craftsmanship and dining experiences.  Headliners include London Grammar, Burt Bacharach and Metronomy.

I will be an In-House Massage Therapist with Wild*Wellbeing at The Sanctuary, WILDERNESS Festival.

The Sanctuary returns for another body-healing, soul-nourishing year, securely nestled on the top of a beautifully shaded hill above the lakes. Hugely popular – the Sanctuary has even more to offer in 2014.

The Wild*Wellbeing team has curated The Sanctuary as a festival destination, combining leading yoga teachers to twist, stretch and shake down your body, alongside a repertoire of highly qualified therapists and complementary health and wellbeing consultants from all disciplines. From acupuncture to zero-balancing, there is no ail that can’t addressed in this village of happiness.

Hopefully see you there!

As I prepare for the Aloha Yoga Summer Retreat, which takes place at the end of this month, I found this beautiful poem from one of last year’s guests.

This poem took me right back to Bala Brook, a truly stunning location for a retreat. Reading this poem brings a huge smile to my face and an opening of my heart. Not long until our 2014 retreat, I can’t wait!


We arrived on a Friday in sunny June,
The setting was perfect – Nature all in tune.
With the sound of the river rushing close by,
the gardens were beautiful, that is no lie.
My fellow yogis were a lovely gang.
All individuals and happy to hang.
With no judgement, no ego, no-one to impress,
we were completely ourselves with just yoga, peace and love no less.
Jackie and Julie are teachers most kind.
And Christine our cook made lunch with our foraging finds.
So we Yoga’d, we Ommed, we foraged, we slept
but most importantly we laughed and at times even wept.
It was a weekend of joy at the nature outside
As well as of the love and happiness that deep down we can hide.
In our everyday life we need more of this
For it brings out the knowledge that doing nothing is BLISS.
