'Hello, lovely souls! As you consider joining our small, exclusive, transformative wellness retreat I wanted to take a moment to share a little bit about myself and my journey.
For the past four decades, my passion has revolved around helping people look and feel their absolute best. It all began when I opened my first beauty salon in Bath in 1981. Assisting my clients in achieving their skin goals brought me immense joy and fulfillment. However, as time went on, I started delving deeper into the world of nutrition and its profound impact on our overall well-being.
Around 15 years ago, I stumbled upon Kundalini yoga and meditation, and it completely transformed my life. This practice became a powerful tool that allowed me to navigate stress with grace, harness the power of breath, and shift my emotional state. The incredible technology behind Kundalini yoga offered me life-changing hacks to renew and recharge myself.
Over the years, I have been humbled and honored to share these teachings and witness the profound healing experienced by my students. It has been an absolute joy to witness their restoration, revitalisation and transformation. Now, I feel incredibly blessed to bring all of these elements together for you and your friends to experience during our 4 night retreat at Quinta do Rio.
My promise to each of you who chooses to retreat with us is simple yet profound: you will have the opportunity to fully relax, feel revitalized, and restore your radiant self. Together, we will embark on a transformative journey that will leave you feeling renewed, inspired, and ready to embrace life's beautiful adventures.'
