“I am fascinated by natural human movement. And not just in the way that it can lead to a toned and functional body. When we move well, and mindfully, we increase our sense of grace, physical integrity and inner confidence.”
I have been teaching in the health and fitness industry for 25 years and have watched all the fads come and go. It's time to get real, ignore false promises and get lasting results.
My passion is to make exercise enjoyable and healthy food delicous.
I have been a martial artist since I was 10. This taught me about discipline, conditioning, mental focus and to respect self and others. I have always trained hard but now in my mid forties I can honestly say that I feel at my best.
Basically, I have turned my nutrition around and follow my own Restore Your Body programme.
I have trained with experts from London to California and my thirst for knowledge in health, fitness and movement science is as strong as ever.
I am a yogi by heart, I play the guitar and the gong and make healthy raw chocolate everyday!
I have put all my trainings and experience together to offer you this retreat...see you there!

Yes, even a tight body can change. It may take time, but given the right environment and education, your body will recognise what optimal movement feels like.
When you are more supple, your strength training improves, your body is less achey and you have better posture.
It is all about finding a balance and learning how to address your individual limitations.
Every day on retreat we spend time learning and practicing gentle yet effective suppleness and mobility techniques.
To become strong, you don't need a gym or even dumb-bells. You simply need to train slowly, have good form and include your whole body.
On this retreat you will learn a variety of exercises to develop a strong and functional body.
Exercises that you can easily do at home or office.
You can then enjoy great posture, become better at your sport and enjoy life's physical challenges.
This is speed based training that is fun, fast and effective. I will guide you safely to the appropriate intensity.
It's all about finding your speed and accessing your power.
You will learn how to continue on your own when you return home.
Get cardio training right and you not only support your heart, metabolic and hormonal health, but you'll have the energy you need to sail through life.
All fitness levels will be catered for.
The way you move in daily life can be an essential part of your body conditioning.
When you move well, you massage, nourish, tone and hydrate your body. Move poorly and you create/perpetuate tension.
At various times throughout the retreat you will explore your best neutral posture. This can be applied to desk sitting, driving, standing, walking and even sport.
We will also learn the theory and practice of lifting heavy objects, efficient gait and anything you want to learn about functional movement in your own life.
Taking 20 or 30 minutes out of your day to simply "be" can make a huge impact to your stress levels.
Throughout the retreat, especially first and last thing, we take time to be still and find inner peace through a variety of relaxation and meditation practices.
It's an important time where you get to nourish your body and let tension become a thing of the past.
You might find yourself questioning your limiting beliefs as you enjoy an exploratory journey from the "need" to control... to the ability to trust.
Body stress and mental worries then begin to fade as presence becomes your guide.
Not only will you enjoy delicious, satisfying and healthy food, but you will learn how to make it when you're back home.
You will leave with many recipe ideas...and yes this includes raw chocolate!
All meals and drinks are included.
"Danny, thanks so much for all you did to make the retreat so good. I had been a bit apprehensive about joining never having done anything similar, but it was great. The sessions were relaxed but invigorating, the food delicious and filling - and interesting. As always your wise and gentle guidance was really helpful. All that, and time to chill in the sun in that beautiful villa. It was brilliant" T

“A thoroughly enjoyable and beneficial experience, based in a stunning villa in a beautiful location. Great variety of activities each day, including sessions on strength, flexibility, fitness & relaxation together with some fun trying out a few recipes for raw chocolate treats and healthy salads. All this plus plenty of downtime for R&R by the pool. Highly recommended.” B

"I would say that the retreat was an excellent balance between physical and mental wellbeing. I found Danny extremely knowledgeable in every session and I thought the way he was able to tailor the each day to meet the needs and mood of the group was great. The accommodation was comfortable and the pool was an added bonus. This contributed to the relaxed nature of the retreat with picturesque mountains in the background.
In summary I really enjoyed the retreat and found it immensely valuable." B
