N O U R I S H
a weekend retreat in Kent, UK
November 17 - 19, 2023
We are so excited to invite you into this little piece of paradise, nestled away in the Canterbury countryside. Our retreat is located on the grounds of a beautiful 17th-century Manor House, formerly owned by Christine McVie from Fleetwood Mac.
You will have complete freedom to enjoy 19 acres of stunning grounds, including secret gardens, tree-lined fields, and a large pond full of fish and frogs, with small waterfalls at both ends. During your stay, you can indulge in cold water activities and warm up in the incredible Scandinavian wood-fired hot tub!
During our 3-day NOURISH retreat, we want to take you on a journey. We understand that the lead-up to Christmas can be crazy, and we often neglect ourselves. The nights get colder and darker, and before we know it, we feel burned out and frazzled. There was a time when we were attuned to the natural rhythms of autumn and winter, settling into a slower pace of life just as the animals around us still do.
We want to help you step out of your life, take stock, reflect, and reimagine how you want to live your life better. With NOURISH, we invite you to rediscover this way of being - to take time to unwind and restore your being so that, even amidst the hustle and bustle of daily life, you can stay connected to the softness within. Our aim is to equip you with practices to remind you of that gentle calm so that, long after the retreat has ended, you can continue to settle into a state of peace and tranquility, wherever you may be.
“A wonderful escape from everyday life...”
Whether you have practiced yoga for years or have never had a regular yoga practice, we offer a variety of movement practices for you to explore. Our fitness sessions also provide an opportunity to try different training styles, from interval sessions to body conditioning and core training.
Our goal with these movement sessions is for you to reconnect with your body and find joy in movement again. We hope to help you appreciate everything your body does for you and renew your passion for taking care of it and loving it even more deeply.
We will be inviting you to immerse yourself in the ancient tradition of the cacao ceremony and to experience the euphoric effects of this sacred plant medicine. Let the soothing vibrations of sound healing wash over you and feel your mind and body relax. Take in the beauty of nature with hikes that help you reconnect and ground yourself again.

'Katie & Lina, thank you so much for creating such a lovely, welcoming, warm, exciting, motivational, supportive and accepting space & retreat. I couldn't begin to explain to you both how much I needed it and how much it changed the trajectory of my life.
Having this space has allowed me to help myself through this time in the healthiest way possible. I don't know how I got so lucky to meet your two beautiful souls. I will always remember this time and the acceptance & space I've felt. I feel so happy to have been in your presence and witness both of your beautiful, strong, funny, inspiring souls. I'm so grateful. Thank you both forever.'
