Carlie Pretor-Pinney

Carlie was an integral part of the huge success of the Journey to Joy retreat in February 2024. Carlie fed and watered us all from start to finish and will be doing the same again. Her food was healthy, seasonal, colourful, delicious and her calm energy was much admired and enjoyed by all who meet her. Carlie is passionate about wellbeing and nutrition and is the most fantastic cook. She is also a personal trainer and specialises in walking actively. She also enjoys healthy cooking and painting. 

I feel very blessed to have met Carlie quite soon after moving to Somerton and I am thrilled that she will be feeding us all again in September.

Jessika from Luna Flow

Feeling drawn to a Sound Healing session earlier this year, I booked with Jess in Glastonbury and I can't wait for you to experience her Sound Healing session - she is amazing. A gentle meditation first and then she seamlessly blends in the crystal bowls. Afterwards she will share her Oracle Cards and allow time to answer any questions at the end.

I was very fortunate to meet Mel shortly after I arrived to Somerset in Summer 2023. Mel was involved in my first Journey to Joy Retreat and I am thrilled that she will be involved in this one. She will be running a workshop with her 'Coaching Hat' on sharing tools on how to tackle stress, stress management, techniques to deal with stress and build resilience - all part of the Find your Inner Strength day. Mel always talks from the heart and shares wonderful stories with a heart centred approach. A wise yogi once said 'there is no point in being able to touch your toes if you cannot touch your heart' - and Mel agrees. To find out more about Mel look at her website;

This day is all about Boosting Your Mind and Body and Henny will share her wisdom from an Ayurvedic prospective.
