Why Join The Retreat?

The focus of this retreat is your hormonal health.

You may think menopause applies only to women in their 50s but the peri-menopausal can begin many years prior, even as young as 35. Some women are aware that changes in mood, energy, and temperature are down to these fluctuations but there are less obvious signs such as changes in weight, heart palpitations, brain fog, and joint pain that are also associated with unhappy hormones. These symptoms are often missed as being caused by hormone fluctuations.

Joining this retreat will provide you with the knowledge and the tools to manage your symptoms more effectively and if you start looking after yourself now to move through the changes with more grace and ease, we will provide a safe, nurturing, and comfortable environment in good company at the beautiful lodge New House Farm in Sussex.

The retreat will be Covid assessed and secured.

WE HAVE APPROPRIATE COVID PROCEDURES IN PLACE AND WILL ADHERE TO SOCIAL DISTANCING RULES.

ABOUT THE YOGA PRACTICE:

De-stressing is critical to balancing the hormones that affect our moods, and energy and the meditative nature of yoga is a powerful tool in calming our psychological state. Our stress (adrenal) glands come under enormous pressure at this time and dysfunction in this area is a strong contributing factor to a number of symptoms ranging from energy issues to anxiety. Yoga helps manage these symptoms as well as those pesky hot flushes that can be so debilitating.

Overall, yoga provides a myriad of benefits when it comes to managing hormones and energy levels for both pre and post-menopause.

You don’t need to have had any previous yoga or meditation experience to benefit from the programme.

Jess, as your Yoga teacher, will make sure you have the individual support you need.

Food and Nutrition – About The Retreat Chef  👨‍🍳

What we eat and drink really is crucial for happy hormones. Our hormones play a part in the health of our hair, skin, libido, weight, muscle tone, and much more besides! As fluctuations happen, it’s important to make sure our nutrient intake is optimal and that we are mindful of the less favourable lifestyle choices we may make.

We are delighted to have Kirstan Horn as our retreat chef!

Kirstan acquired his passion for food from his early travels through South East Asia, Australia & India. He honed his skills in the restaurants of London working with such chefs as Peter Gordon at the Sugar Club and Adrián Benobas at 1st Floor. He is currently head of product development at The Chapel & Swan Smokery who supply some of the countries top eateries & hotels. Kirstan does regular pop up events in Cambridge with chef Maoz Alonim as well as catering for retreats where he specialises in making healthy but delicious vegetarian dishes and will be working closely with Charlotte to provide a delicious, healthy and nourishing menu!

The food was, without doubt, a key highlight of our May retreat!

YOUR HOSTS

Charlotte Schilcher, Registered Nutritional Therapist

After 20 years of having a bit too much fun in the music industry, I decided to retrain in Nutritional Therapy. Throughout my 20s and 30s, I had experienced a number of health challenges. These ranged from mental health issues, hormonal symptoms, skin disturbances and perimenopausal symptoms starting in my early 40s.

They deeply affected my quality of life and conventional medicine offered limited solutions. I began to approach these issues holistically and after much research, I was able to bring my body and mind into balance through changes in my diet and lifestyle choices. This was extremely empowering. I felt in control of my health and that is a good feeling. Experiencing the benefits diet and exercise first hand left me compelled to share this knowledge and help others.

I’m really looking forward to helping you manage your hormones. I will give you the information and tools you need to maintain good health and happiness in your daily life.
