Manuka Life introduces &Sister

&Sister specialise in producing unique yoga retreats and well-being events. Our philosophy is three-fold: one, to collaborate with leading lights in the well-being world; two, to create unique retreats and events that, three, in turn establish a long-lasting ever-evolving community (an &Sister &Brother-hood).

&Sister grew out of my own life-changing retreat experiences that kept me sane during my stressed-out periods as a lawyer in my 20s, combined with Natalie’s eye for luxurious detail and loving desire to help guide and support her little sis – hence the name!

The idea burst into my mind whilst on a yoga mat several years ago (the best ideas always do!). Natalie and I subsequently set up &Sister in July 2015 and began to plan our first retreat. Natalie and I are passionate about what we do and adore working together. We are usually found in Charlotte’s in Ealing, lattes in hand, plotting our next conceptual retreat experience (while entertaining two toddlers!). The best thing about running our company is the chance to connect with like-minded people, whether they be our collaborators or our retreat guests or in some cases both – like in October 2016 when Sarah Mac, Manuka’s creative director, retreated with us on Indian Summer. Spending time with Sarah on the retreat, specifically chatting on the long countryside walk has led to &Sister now partnering with Manuka Life. In fact, if you are reading this and are tempted to retreat with us, we are offering Manuka Life customers a 30-minute complimentary treatment on any of our upcoming retreats. All you have to do is quote MANUKA30 when you book.
