Superfit Superfood Tour of London
Are you bored of hot lemon and water? Do you want to start 2015 with more of a zing?
If you are looking for a January detox that is all of the fun and none of the deprivation – then look no further.
This January I’m teaming up elite athlete Christina Hinds to share with you a very special 7 day Urban Retreat.
It’s been months – if not years – in the making.
I made London my home in 2006 and for the last 9 years have been spent my free time trying out different yoga studios, scouring health shops for the best supplements and fresh ingredients and making friends with those who have both educated and inspired me about fitness and nutrition.
So it is with GREAT excitement that I can now share with you our Superfit Superfood Tour of London.
I’m looking forward to finally meeting some of you there!
