Slow & Seaonal inspired....
Yoga, adventures & retreats in North Wales.
What started as a personal blog in 2012 to document a change of lifestyle, has slowly manifested into a way of living and working.
From a disconnected city-girl, I’ve become a country bumpkin wannabe enjoying a slower & natural way of living. I want to share my lifestyle with those looking to improve their mental & physical wellbeing by using yoga & ecotherapy as an antidote.
Slow & seasonal living
A holistic & reflective lifestyle drawing upon natural remedies, ancient wisdom & rhythms. Nourishing & savouring each moment come rain or shine.
This way of living helps to promote:
- Mental resilience
- Calm + clear thinking
- Easier breathing
- Better sleep quality
- Life satisfaction

Find a slower pace…
Disconnect from being busy, allow nature to reset & relax you, whilst helping you to build better habits.
Meet new people…
Life’s better with like-minded souls. Beginner (& some dog) friendly days out in the countryside.
build a life around nature
The concept of Loving Life in Wellies is fuelled by Ecotherapy. This practice uses a variety of natural world activities to improve mental & physical wellbeing.
So far, studies suggest that ecotherapy improves mood, boosts self confidence, encourages peer support, reduces feelings of stress & anger.
I love to use the natural landscapes of the Ceiriog and Dee valley to inspire inner calm, clarity & focus.

what would you like to know?
Back when I lived in a busy built up area, as a relief I would visit friends for weekend adventures on their farm. But usually in ridiculously unsuitable footwear.
After too many ankle incidents I was gifted a pair of wellies!
The name wasn’t just down to wearing wellies, it was more about what fun I had whilst wearing them & those feelings stuck with me.
Fun fact… I don’t currently own any wellies.
My own personal experiences..
Trying new things is uncomfortable for me. Taking up yoga, paddle boarding and hiking certainly didn’t feel natural! I’ve always been over cautious, stuck in my own ways and somewhat lacking in confidence in my abilities.
Over the years, I’ve dedicated my free time to learning about human psychology. I am a qualified mindfulness practitioner and I’m studying my counselling therapy certificates so I feel I’m better equipped to offer support and encouragement.
It certainly isn’t. I champion diversity & inclusion.
Due to sleeping arrangements however, retreats are only suitable for those who identify as female.
