Transform in Nature Retreats

Transform in Nature Retreats Essence Health and wellness training

I would like to invite you to immerse yourself in this beautiful setting at the foothills of the Black Mountains on the edge of the Brecon Beacons. Over the long weekend, I will be providing support to help you identify subconscious patterns and beliefs that may have left you disempowered, disconnected or feeling a lack of confidence to fulfil dreams and ideals that have been put on the back burner or feel out of reach. Opening transformational pathways allows us to recognise inherent feminine wisdom that provides building blocks of self-awareness to enable growth, creativity, joy and new beginnings, to bring forward whatever is waiting to emerge. Held in nature, with compassion, care and truth, you are encouraged to explore your treasure chest of potential.


The stone cottages are nestled in some of the most beautiful scenery on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. With a spectacular river setting, 16 acres of private land, breath taking views of Hatterrall Hill, part of Offa’s Dyke, and the Skirrid Mountain, you can fully relax and enjoy all the beauty, wildlife and tranquility of this special place. The cottages have been renovated to a high standard with the main building offering plenty of room to relax with ensuite bedrooms and stunning views, a large lounge area, dining room and kitchen. The cottage also offers a private courtyard which allows an option for al fresco dining should we want to take in the Brecon Beacons amazing night sky.

Food and beverages

I’m excited to have a wonderful cook looking after us, who works at many upmarket retreats in Spain. Delicious vegetarian food will be prepared to include breakfast, buffet lunches on Saturday and Sunday and a two course evening meal each night, with pre dinner fruit cocktails and nibbles. Teas and coffee will also be available throughout the day. Please note this is a no alcohol retreat


A short drive away from the cottages is the yoga barn. Natural light streams into the beautiful and fully equipped yoga studio, creating a wonderful calm atmosphere to help you relax, restore and rebalance. An hour and a half yoga session is included on Saturday and Sunday morning and an additional hours yoga on Monday morning.


One treatment is included per person and will be reserved on a first come first served basis. There are 4 x 45 minute kinesiology slots available or 8 x 30 minute slots available for deep energy clearing and healing working with the purifying nature of selenite crystals.
