​The Nourished Soul returns with arms open wide, to offer you the opportunity to create sacred space within your home and join us for this relaxing, fun and insightful virtual day retreat. 

In these unusual times your wellbeing is more important than ever so taking the time to retreat away from the usual demands of life is so important to rejuvenate your energy levels and nourish your soul.

We would absolutely love you to join us for a day that will cleanse the body and mind  and re-ignite your soul connection.


This beautiful mini retreat day has been designed for ultimate self care and a sense of connection to yourself and other like-minded souls.

The day will begin with a relaxing and restorative Yin yoga class with Mays suitable for all levels.​

Lauren will then guide us through a creative plant based cook-along & fermentation workshop to create a delicious and exquisite (plant based + gluten free) mood boosting lunch for us to all eat together. You will also learn how to make your own kimchi to enjoy in the days ahead.

(Shopping list will be provided in advance)

Over lunch Mays will help empower you to take control of your health with nutrition tips on how to create immune resilience as well as learning about the importance of the gut brain immune connection during an uplifting and informal nutrition discussion including Q&A to answer any of your specific questions.

​After lunch and a comfort break, Tansy will guide you to connect with the power of Mother Nature through a virtual Forest Bathing session and nature based guided meditation. Tansy will share ways you can begin your own Forest Bathing practice for solo exercise during this time and will share the beauty of Nature that you can connect to from home as she brings the experience to life in your mind and guides you through mindfulness exercises that allow you to connect to your own true nature.​

​Add to this the wonderful sense of belonging as we come together virtually and feel the uplifting collective energy of the group whilst we finish in a virtual circle to share and give gratitude for the shared experience.
