In our retreats we work with a great team. We are proud to introduce:
Amanda Norris, whole food and raw food chef and supporting the retreats in many ways..
"I will be your raw food chef. My aim at SunfoodYoga is to make your retreat an inspirational taste sensation.
Along side preparing the three main meals of the day, I will be hosting various workshops (crackers, chocolates and gourmet cakes). Demonstrating how to make raw food easy,tasty and impressive!
Like many, bad health pushed me to look within and to see my life as a whole. I realised that with the combination of good food, yoga, meditation, creativity and nature, the real you can shine through and you can enjoy living life to the full.
I will be on hand for any questions you may have, or to lend a sympathetic ear to anyone that might need it.
Since working with Tara, I have met so many beautiful and interesting people and I look forward to meeting you all on the next retreat."
