"It's a real privilege to guide people through a retreat experience. I witness a physical & many times an emotional shift in my clients as the week goes on. It's a rare opportunity for one to truly invest in themselves. Many people leave having enjoyed some relaxation but also find a sense of perspective, clarity, confidence and sometimes a strength to try new things & share new experiences.

I'm very humbled when people trust & choose me to guide them on a retreat as my teaching comes from the heart. Come and breathe in the beauty of the Dordogne with me, it's an experience you'll never forget." Namaste - Lizzie x
