The Retreat Team

Olivia Seck

inspired coach, eternal student and teacher of woman wisdom, mother of 4 and birth practitioner and trainer, Olivia has supported women and families for over 2 decades, especially through transitions such as pregnancy, birth, and motherhood.

In 2011,  she founded and still co-run Radiant Mama (formerly the Totnes Holistic Birth Hub) a Devon project that offers info, emotional and practical support, classes, holistic therapies and a nourishing lunch within a community of like-minded parents – all on a donation basis.

 

Being a woman and a mother in the 21st century has been a deep exploration in her  personal and professional life.

 

Her intention now is simply to share what she has learned  and offer her presence and the tools she has gathered along the way, in service to women, families and a more peaceful and loving world.

Elise Yuill Cohen

Elise Yuill Cohen is a yoga teacher, pilates instructor and a rising sacred music artist and folk singer from the South West of England.

 

On the retreat, she will be teaching restorative yoga and leading Kirtan on Friday evening.

Kirtan is a heart centred group singing practice from the Bhakti Yoga tradition; the path of love and devotion. We gather to sing spiritually uplifting mantras and experience joy, harmony and connection in each unique co-creation of sacred sound. 

Mantras are medicine for the mind, body and soul. They bring us home to the heart to find the deep peace within as we awaken to divine love. We quite literally begin to vibrate with peace, love and unity, and everything else drops away. 

With easy to follow melodies, no singing experience or technique is necessary - this is yoga for your voice and you do not need to feel like a "singer" to join in!

Helen is also the creator of the One World show, an original piece of choral theatre focusing on the crossroads at which we currently stand. First shown in the SW this show has been performed to sell-out audiences in Hull in 2017 and London in 2019.
