Years passed and I did the career thing, getting back to the island whenever I could – never often enough. Then, when I had met my husband Paul, there was an opportunity to move to the island full time – my dream had come true.
Along the years we had done a lot of our own personal development and through our work, had the privilege to accompany other people on their own journey. One thing that we knew made a huge difference was the environment in which that took place. Places of natural beauty, calm and spacious, places where one felt held.
We knew Heir Island was such a place and it became a desire to create a space here so that other people could benefit from it’s magic. Heir Island Retreat was born.
That was in 2012 – since then we have held many diverse events from yoga and meditation retreats to music performances to team workshops – even theatre.
Unexpectedly, the Retreat has also played a role in inspiring me to train to as a yoga teacher and I am so grateful for that. The studio is perfect for yoga as the many teachers and students experience.
The themes in the comments of people who visit are consistent – they sense the magic, they feel nourished and they leave inspired.
