Join our virtual wellness retreat
Saturday 3rd April
We are delighted to be collaborating with yoga expert Luke Bradshaw and floor barre sensation, Ellya Sam, to bring you an online wellness retreat to balance your mind, body and soul. Even your tastebuds will feel reinvigorated!
The 4-hour online wellness retreat will feature a baking master class with Dough & Daughters where you will learn to make a wholesome and hearty loaf. Whilst waiting for the dough to prove you can take part in a full-body workout with a dynamic vinyasa yoga class from Luke Bradshaw. Then it's back to bread making to get your loaf in the oven. An uplifting floor barre session with Ellya Sam will help you feel refreshed whilst the bread bakes.
And after all that, you get to savour your beautiful freshly baked loaf. It's the perfect combination to relax, revive and learn something new.
We have created two different packages, one priced at £75 which is for one person, however if you and your housemates, or family members would like to join then the price is £100 for one log in.
