Excellent Retreat! The schedule was a great mix of yoga, fitness classes, nature walks, workshops, and other activities. And yet there was still plenty of free time for relaxation and personal activities! Food was incredible.Cheryl and Sarah were incredibly welcoming and skilled in their instruction, and the whole experience was relaxing from start to finish. The only disappointing thing was that is ended :) Would have loved a fourth night! - Lauren

A little bit about Intuitive Chef

Andrea has been a keen and intuitive cook from a very young age, baking with her Grandma and cooking up elaborate feasts for many guests with her parents.
She discovered my passion for a healthier approach to food and experienced first hand the powerful tool of nourishing the body through exercise and nutrition.

Andrea's style is relaxed, creative and innovative. She creates flavourful, beautiful dishes to nourish the body and the soul.
In 2021 she underwent an intensive training with Bettina Campolucci Bondi at her retreat chef academy in London, where she learned the ins and outs of Retreat cooking!

She works as a retreat chef, caterer and recipe developer and will be launching her own cookery school in the heart of the beautiful Kent country side later this year.

Cheryl attained her L3 diploma, 200 hrs yoga teacher's training (YTT) in 2011 with a CQY Accreditation . Cheryl completed her advanced 300 hrs YTT with YogaLondon in spring 2021. Cheryl loves to learn about yoga philosophy to understand the depth of the practice as a way to understand herself better. Cheryl has trained in Pre/Post Natal Yoga, Kids Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Restorative Yoga and Sound healing to offer a well rounded experience and yoga practice. Cheryl's teaching is inspired by various styles of yoga including Astanga, Dharma, Sivananda and Bikram.
