Yoga and Brunch is the perfect blend of mindful movement, delicious meals, and meaningful connections in special Surrey locations.

How did it all begin?

It all started after the pandemic with an immense need to reconnect to nature and reclaim our social connection. I wanted to bring us back together and feel part of something bigger.

What sets your business apart?

We’re dedicated to cultivating a vibrant community where mindfulness meets culinary delight. Our holistic approach embraces harmony, with a deep focus on nature connection. We offer rejuvenating yoga practices open to all levels, where you can relax, disconnect from the busy-ness of the week, and restore the body and mind. Every session is always followed by delicious, nourishing meals crafted by local chefs, caterers, and small local businesses to support each other and grow together.

What is the concept behind your business or the problem you’re solving?

We offer a meaningful wellness experience to release physical, mental, and emotional stress in a peaceful environment away from the distractions of daily life with less time commitment and at a lower cost compared to multi-day retreats, making it more accessible for those with busy schedules. Every day retreat has a specific theme or focused approach that allows our guests to delve deeply into a particular aspect of wellness, gaining valuable insights and skills that they can incorporate into their daily lives.

Where to next/What is your brand vision?

To hold space for a wider and bigger community and expand Yoga and Brunch to weekend and international retreats where your wellbeing is priority and we can bond over shared experiences, support each other’s wellness goals, and return to our daily lives feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and inspired with a deep sense of community and belonging.

What do you feel passionate about/what drives you?

Leading and sharing a healthy lifestyle and promoting well-being are my business passions, but being a mum and being there for my family is my main drive. I feel very passionate about fitness, nutrition, mental and health awareness too.

Share an example of early life that has shaped you?

Moving out at the age of 16 shaped my life and made me incredibly independent and stronger. I’ve lived by myself since until I got married and started a family, but it was in those moments of loneliness and doubt that I found my resilience and decided I was never going to stop dreaming big and being myself.

Highlights of your business journey so far?

The friendships made over the years, the beautiful towns, and venues I’ve had the pleasure to visit and work with, and the magical energy shared in every event that is hard to describe because you must experience it.

Key lessons you have learned along the way?

To be more open to mistakes and set my perfectionism aside on occasions, reminding me that we’re all humans and we are all doing our best.

Best piece of advice you have received?

To be patient and keep working hard, determination and consistency are key to any success.

Advice to an aspiring entrepreneur or woman just starting her career?

To find support in the community around them and never try to do it all yourself. To also make sure to focus on your own wellbeing, so you can represent your business they best possible way.

What funding route have you chosen for your business and why?

Self funding.

Some of the challenges you have faced and how you overcame them?

Being a mum of 2 young children means I am very limited in the time I can invest in marketing, sales, planning, etc. It’s been a challenge to work long hours late at night to so I can make my dream possible. I’ve also have to learn to lean more on others and trust more.

Why is it important to support women-led business?

We are a force and I believe gender should never be a barrier to entrepreneurial success. Women-led businesses promote diversity in the business world, contributes to a more inclusive economy and support economic independence for women. In most cases, we are also supporting their families, so it’s also a way of helping new generations too.
