Testimonials

Testimonial by Geoff

I have just come back from a yoga and well-being retreat and it was fantastic. The farm is idyllic, and only about 45 minutes from Bristol on a good run. Hayley is a wonderful yoga teacher, technically skilled but very kind and helpful, while Tom's Forest Bathing sessions are a really enlightening experience. The food is fantastic too, and they are the perfect hosts. The only bad thing about the retreat was having to leave on the Sunday!

Testimonial by Jo

Hayley supported me wonderfully through my cancer treatment, always feeling like a safe pair of hands, and enabling me to relax, reconnect with my poorly body, and manage my aches and pains. Since stopping treatment seeing Hayley has become such a treat and a really important way for me to build my strength and confidence back. Plus it’s the most wonderfully relaxing experience – I love it!
