The Slow Down Retreat


“The challenge is not to be perfect — it is to be whole.” - Jane Fonda

Welcome to the Slow Down Retreat - an online haven where you can escape life’s everyday stresses and nurture your mind, body and spirit from the moment you enter our digital Retreat.

I have curated the Slow Down to be a nourishing online space, a digital retreat where you can slow down, retreat, nourish, empower and prioritise self-care. The Slow Down is a free digital retreat centre that supports people all over the globe who are ready to journey into a sacred space where self-care and self-discovery becomes a priority.

When I am not on my property, making products, hosting wellness retreats or working at my small little B+B I spend my days creating restorative yoga sequences, writing meditations, and recording my podcast The OM Collective.

This little retreat space is my life's work - it is where Botanical Trader and the OM collective collide. It is a curated selection of everything I do in hope that there is something that resonates with you in a positive way. 

If you haven't already - make sure you sign up to my OM Weekender, a weekly letter from me that lands in your inbox for the start of your weekend.

May you live your life with ease. Namaste.

With Gratitude
