Having always been an advocate of health I unexpectedly found myself facing a life compromising illness in my early 30's with two young children to raise. With a background in Pharmacology and Physiology I knew that the body was capable of healing itself and I embarked on a journey to restore my health. Expanding my studies to include Naturopathic Nutrition, Yoga and Breathwork I was inspired to educate others on the impact of diet and stress in our busy lives. I am passionate about health and the ability to reverse illness through nourishing the body and enabling others to live an energetic and vibrant life.

I left Australia for London to pursue my dream of being a professional rugby league player. After a very successful top flight career that spanned 4 countries and 21 years I settled in France and started my coaching career. I now use all the experience and lessons learned in the professional sporting arena to help my clients achieve their goals no matter age, weight or fitness level

HIKING & GROUNDING
Hiking in nature not only supports your weight loss journey through movement but also reduces stress hormones so your body feels safe to let go of stored fat. Immersing yourself in nature is one of the most effective ways of reducing inflammation and stress. Nicola and Baxter will infect you with their love of the area on your morning walks.
REBOUNDING, YOGA & MASSAGE
Living life in fight or flight mode means stress hormones like Cortisol remain in circulation thus trapping us in our Sympathetic nervous system. Not only is this detrimental to our physical and mental health it’s also a main cause of premature ageing.
We start the day with rebounding. It is a simple way to move and release the lymph and toxins in the lymphatic system. Yoga, breath work and meditation are ancient tools used to quieten the mind and care for the body. By incorporating breath led movement sequences and poses specifically designed to open we prepare the body to meditate reducing stress hormones.
Later in the afternoon you will enjoy massage to work on any areas that are of concern but to re enforce your body that it is safe, iumprove digestion and lower the stress hormones.

We use this time in the mornings to come into our body before we start the day. This brings the body into a Parasympathetic state to remove the stress or fight or flight and allows us to start the day being Mindful and with purpose.
