    CONS Cons: it was too short!

    PROS Pros: well organised yoga retreat. Accomodation and food was very good. The hostess was brilliant and nothing too much trouble. We combined yoga sessions with meditation and horse riding lessons. Perfect weekend!

    "Wow, Horizon retreats; Such a fantastic experience, as soon as you arrive you instantly feel welcome and at home in the warm and friendly environment. A wonderful restorative weekend with a great group of fellow retreaters. Yoga, reflection, beach walks, hot tub bubbles, doodles and laughter spent in the beautiful Cornish town of Perranporth. Joey is a very special lady, compassionate, caring and inspirational, she's helped me in feeling a new sense of both grounding and courage. I loved all the little touches around the house, the goodie bags and words of wisdom, thoughtful, creative and kind. Extraordinarily tasty vegetarian gluten free food provided all weekend, nourishing, colourful and lovingly prepared. Since returning home I already feel more comfortable in my skin and my sleep quality has improved, I've tried recreating some of the delicious food too. Absolutely cannot wait for the next one, I'm booking it, I'm worth it!"

    "The retreat was nicely balanced between meditation, yoga, little extras and free time. A carefully thought out programme. I can't recommend joey and her team enough, they all made my first meditation and yoga retreat a really truthful, warm, and safe environment to grow. Thank you!"

    "The whole experience was wonderfully calming, insightful, and rejuvenating. I especially enjoyed the yoga session and the meditation in the tent. Joey was an excellent host and cooked excellent veggie meals that a non-vegetarian like me could really enjoy. I loved the cozy night discussions held by the fire and getting to know everyone over our meals. It was a truly wonderful experience and I will be booking another horizon retreat very soon."

    "Great weekend packed with emotional, spiritual, and physical boosters. For me, being outdoors was key as it gave me alone time. Good variety of freshly prepared meals. Overall, having me-time away from a busy London is always a good thing. Thank you, Joey."

    "The Press Pause retreat really allowed me to leave behind the everyday and deeply relax. Joey held the space incredibly well, she had thought of every detail, scheduling the weekend so we could explore inwardly and then venture back into reality slowly. The food was awesome and meditation, yoga, and massage very complimentary. Feel energized from an experience that will stay with me for some time! Big thanks, Joey."

Testimonials

  • Review by Fleur from London

    "I attended a Mums' Retreat and can't really find the words to say how much I appreciated this weekend. From start to finish Joey took care of us like we had been friends for years. She is a very special lady who had thought of so much to make this weekend special for us. The other mums on the retreat were fantastic and I hope we will be friends going forward. The food, the location, the yoga the meditation were all amazing, and as a beginner to meditation I had my doubts. But I have come away with a new life skill which I know will be hugely positive going forward. Thank you Joey for the best weekend ever!"

  • Review by Shantha from London

    "I started the weekend away not really expecting more that just some time away to relax and be pampered... but I came back with so much more. I am still tired (just where I am in life right now) but I feel energised, inspired and excited about now and the future. I'm grateful for what I do have, hopeful for what's to come and not one bit guilty for taking some time to focus on me. Joey, thank you so much for doing these retreats!"

  • Review by Sophie from London

    "I can't really put into words how much I loved the Mums' Retreat weekend. As much as I was looking forward to it, I was apprehensive about leaving my son for the first time since he was born (nearly 2 years ago) but upon arrival my worries just melted away. It was the most wonderfully restorative, nourishing and inspiring few days. The programme flowed beautifully, I never felt hurried but every moment was meaningful in some way. The company was warm and the hosting second to none. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this amazing experience to anyone in need to some personal tlc and time to reflect. Thank you so much Joey - I couldn't have asked for anything more."

  • Review by Jo from London

    "The Mums' Retreat was an amazing experience. Being a mum of two small children is hard, and of course, I love my family dearly, but I so desperately needed some time out for me to remind myself to be kind to myself and to look after myself. I learnt so much on the weekend especially about gratitude and being grateful for what I have - I am so lucky and I just needed space to be reminded of that. I would completely recommend any mums out there to take time out for themselves a book on a Mums Retreat. It's the best thing I've done for myself since having my two girls."
