When a vision comes to life… I held my first retreat day in 2019 and what a truly soul-nourishing day it was.
Upon entering the beautiful Tipis at Riley Green, the women were welcomed with a hot cup of cacao as they chatted and settled in their new surroundings for the day. After making their way to the mats, I guided them through a meditation and journalling workshop using their new Happiness Planner journals which laid the foundations for the rest of the day, helping them to feel at ease and comfy in the space.
This flowed onto a heart opening vinyasa yoga class where the women were able to quieten their mind of the usual endless list of to-dos and be more present in their body and soul. Moving through an array of different yoga postures and sun salutations, the women warmed up their bodies and got their juices flowing.
After this the ladies were refreshed with a nutritional juice blend from Nutritoxers ready to set them up for the next session of the day.
Shake Your Soul
It was then Shake Your Soul time, where I led a dance movement class to help our ladies really let go, move their whole mind, body and soul whilst having fun, building inner confidence and feeling energised and more connected with their self and others in the space. From the feedback received, it was clear that this proved to be a thoroughly enjoyable session even though some of them may have had reservations beforehand as they had never tried a Shake Your Soul class before.
After a full morning of moving their bodies and letting go, it was time to nourish their bodies with some delicious and nutritious food by Totally D’vine Catering. It looked absolutely beautiful and tasted equally sublime.
After lunch, Amy Rushworth – one of the UK’s leading Transformational Coaches – led the women through a transformational workshop to help build their inner confidence and reignite their feminine power. This was an incredible session; packed with emotion and truth.
Mr & Mrs Brilliant Soundwave
Then it was time to get warm and cosy with blankets provided by Hforhammand, settling our bodies and getting comfortable ready for Mr & Mrs Brilliant’s stunning soundwave. They used an array of instruments like gongs, crystal bowls and a harp and the beautiful angelic voice of Laura herself. It was such a powerful session to allow healing and transformation to take place on a cellular level.
To finish the day I held a sacred sister circle to allow all the women the space to feel connected, supported and loved. Setting clear intentions of what they want to bring more into their lives. It was a truly beautiful moment and something that I will hold so dearly in my heart forever.
A Gift To Take Home
Before the women all left for the day I handed out all the gift bags to help keep the momentum of nourishing themselves at home too.
A big thank you to the kind and generous sponsors of the day for gifting the women all these amazing items:
Elemis Superfood Kefir-Tea Face Mist | with Aloe Vera
Elemis Hydra-Gel Eye Masks
100 Day Happiness Planner
Sweaty Betty Canvas Tote Bag
I can’t thank The Tipi’s at Riley Green enough for being such an amazing venue and host for the day, they were so welcoming and helpful for throughout making sure all our needs were attended to. Also to Willow and Fig who beautifully styled the Tipi’s to make it look that bit more special, all their decorations and touches enhanced the magic of the day.
Thank you to everyone who made the day what it was and to each and every one of the beautiful women who came; it exceeded all my expectations!
Here’s a little video to see everything in motion too.

Sending you all so much love & light,
Sally’s Nourish Your Soul retreat was the first retreat I had ever attended and from start to finish it was just what I needed. Life can be busy and taking time out with no distractions was absolute bliss! Surrounded by like minded women we had the opportunity to just let go of all we held inside. Yoga, shake your soul, yummy food, journaling, guest speakers, sound bath, what a treat of a day. It was the first time I’d benefited from meditation, I was able to shut down all senses and entered a state of deep relaxation, I’ve now found a new love for guided meditation. I’ll look forwards to my next retreat with Sally. – Tiphanie
I loved the yoga and loved meeting new friends and hearing about everyone’s lives. I actually loved the shake your soul class and found it so easy to let go (which surprised me!). I came away from the day feeling like I could do anything I wanted in the world. I am a Dietitian currently working in the NHS but am contemplating setting up my own clinic. This day has given me self confidence and a push in the right direction! – Becca
I attended Sally’s first retreat day, which was pivotal in opening my heart and mind to self-acceptance and healing. I can honestly say that it was a life-changing experience beyond expectation. I was introduced to mindfulness practices, connecting with the body and soul though movement and action, provided with the tools to recognise my inner voice and trusting my intuition to become the master of my own higher purpose. Sally is a refreshingly honest, compassionate, and inspiring human being, she holds a space with such gentleness and ease. – Aneesa
