Mindfully making it Retreats
'When a baby is born so is a mother'
And mothers need nurturing as much as their children. Sadly in our modern and fast paced society this can be difficult to achieve and even worst, it isn't the societal norm.
Mindfully making it retreats aim to provide mothers with some much needed nurturing. Whether they are weeks or years into their parenting journey. Beautiful, calm spaces and relaxing activities aimed at helping YOU reconnect to YOU.
The first retreat will be in September 2021. Please continue reading for more information and to reserve your space.

All the activities, food and drink is included in the ticket price. Additionally each person will receive a Mindfully making it canvas bag full of goodies aimed at helping you continue nurturing yourself after the event.
I am so excited to share the details and agenda with you for the very first Mindful Mama Retreat. I have picked a local and accessible venue with dedicated parking. It has it's own private outdoor patio that overlooks a beautiful park. There's a Waitrose and various other shops a few minutes away.
All the activities will be suitable for beginners so please don't worry about having any previous experience. Plus everything on the day is optional, if for some reason you need some time out from an activity or even if you need a nap there will be a secluded cosy corner. Plus there is plenty of outdoor space. We have access to our own private kitchen and bathrooms.
If you are a business wanting to get involved please scroll to the bottom of this page to see how you can do so.
Without further ado, here is the agenda for this gorgeous day of calm, connection and creativity.
10am: arrival drinks and healthy snacks
(think bliss balls & vegan brownies)
10.30am: introduction, opening mindfulness activity
11am: break/mindful walk in the park
11.15am: yoga with Victoria
12.15pm: lunch (we will be serving a healthy nutritious vegetarian lunch and all dietary restrictions
can be catered for)
1pm: crafting time and massages with Tina from Peace at last (there will be a couple of different crafts and each person
will go and get there massage during this time, don't worry you wont miss out, the crafts will be simple enough that
I can easily catch you up on what you missed)
2.45pm: closing mindfulness activity and meditation
Can I bring my baby with me?
The overall day is designed for mothers only, however if you need someone to bring your baby in to feed that is absolutely fine. There are also kitchen facilities if you need to pump and store breastmilk. There will be a secluded cosy corner you can pump in. I will be organising mum and baby/mum and child retreats soon so keep your eyes peeled for them as well.
Does it matter how old my children are?
Absolutely not, they could be weeks, years or on the way.
Can I come if I am pregnant?
Yes of course.
Do you cater for vegans, allergies or specific diets?
The food and drinks throughout the day will all be vegetarian and can be adapted to be vegan very easily. If you have any allergies, medical conditions or dietary restrictions there is a section on the booking form to fill this out. You are also welcome to bring your own food/drinks.
I don't drive, can I still get there?
Yes I can arrange lift shares (in fact this is always promoted, covid restrictions permitting) and there will be public transport links to most venues. I am a very open and welcoming person so will always do my best to accommodate everyone.
What about Covid restrictions/lockdowns etc?
I have planned this event to take place well after the predicted date for social distancing restrictions to be eased enough to allow these events to happen. At the moment the road map seems to be going well but as we all know, you just never know. If for some reason the date has to be changed because of a lockdown then your ticket will be moved to the new date, if you cannot make the new date you will be refunded. If you cannot make the event due to isolating then I will help you to try and sell your ticket. I am starting with a very intimate venue and I expect tickets to sell pretty fast so this shouldn't be an issue.
Are you a local business wanting to get involved?
If so there's a few ways to do so...

Anyone sponsoring the event will get their logo added to the event flyer and promotional material, I will also do periodic posts and shout outs on my social media. You can add various marketing materials to the goody bags and send me information to shout out when I do the introduction and close at the event.
