This wellness retreat will be co-facilitated by Nicholas McLean and Yasmin Lambat



Yasmin is a Mindfulness Coach and Somatic movement therapist with a fascination for the body/mind connection. It led to her creating a simple movement therapy called Body Sensing. Easier than Yoga or Pilates, Body Sensing influences the nervous system through movement to reduce stress, relieve pain and restore wellbeing.



Nicholas is a food and wellness coach who helps people to eat well, move well and feel well. He facilitates wellness through growing superfoods, bodysensing and yoga therapy, somatic coaching and nutritional healing programs.


This longer retreat gives you enough time to reflect on lessons in solitude or for being with supportive people

Every retreat is uniquely special and each time we feel truly blessed to be doing what we do
