Reset & Restore at The Quaives
Join Minnie Samengo-Turner and I on Thursday 14th - 17th Sunday March 2019.
Welcome to The Quaives estate, previously owned by Fleetwood Mac’s Christine McVie, The Quaives is a hidden gem surrounded by the peaceful countryside of Kent just an hour outside of London. A short distance from two stunning english villages of Ickham and Wickhambreaux.
Is this retreat for you?
This will be an important and precious time to reflect on what did or didn’t work for you last year and to realign yourself with your goals from the support and guidance of myself, Minnie and we're so excited to have delicious vegan and vegetarian food from Luna Wellbeing.
Is this you?
You need to step out of auto pilot and just focus on yourself for a long weekend.
Perhaps you've been relying on coffee and sugary foods to keep you going.
Maybe negative habits have come creeping back in during the festive period which you know aren't serving you.
You want to commit to a meditation and yoga practise but you never 'have time.'
You want to build in healthier habits into your daily life going forward.
You need a break from your phone (all year round.)

The coaching with Milla
Milla is a health and lifestyle coach based in London, guiding and supporting individuals to reach their health goals and make lasting, sustainable changes to their health and happiness. She works with her clients on a carefully tailored Tired to Transformed 6 or 12 week programme or offers a Luxury Transformational Day, designed for the busy both men and women flat out juggling household, family and work. She works on getting to the root cause of the problem rather than treating the root cause as to why you may be stuck in the same dysfunctional patters or perhaps self sabotaging.
January will come and go which means many Brits would have already broken their New Year resolutions. Why do we so often fall back into our unhealthy habits that just don’t serve us? Why are they so hard to keep?
This retreat isn’t for setting New Year resolutions. Instead we’re going to set your health & lifestyle goals for 2019.
Remember: health is not a goal, it’s a launch pad. You may want to get off the sugar, lose some weight or have more energy but for what? You need to think about your end goal and with the support from Milla together we will clear the path to get there.
How the Yoga will go with Minnie Samengo-Turner.
Our yoga practice will be based around the idea of rooting down and grounding. After the craziness of Christmas and New Year January is the perfect time to reflect, cleanse and reset. As our society promotes our yang way of living constantly moving, striving and achieving we must make sure we have enough time for our Yin side – simply just being. In Chinese medicine we need to have a balance of both the yin and the yang to achieve good health.
In the morning, expect grounding and creative vinyasa flow inspired sequences encouraging you to move slower and more consciously, with lots of twists to help remove toxins and build internal heat. The evening will consist of nourishing Yin Yoga, where we hold simple poses for longer. This starts to work beyond the muscles and goes deeper into the fascia and connective tissue. As you drop down into your parasympathetic nervous system allowing you body to heal itself, this is where the magic happens! Expect lots of blankets, bolsters, candles and essential oils to set you up for a deep healing sleep.
Different variations suitable for all levels, pushing yourself if you want, but most importantly encouraging you to listen to your body.
