Love Jen x

The Wild Times yoga and paddleboarding retreat in the Lake District was the perfect getaway. I am always looking to combine yoga with nature and adventure and this retreat had the perfect balance of all three. The location was magical and Jen is a fantastic yoga and paddleboard teacher. I felt I was able to both relax and push myself out of my comfort zone which is exactly what I wanted. I would definitely recommend and will certainly attend another The Wild Times Retreat.

The Wild Times Lake District Yoga Retreat was the perfect blend of activity and adventure, relaxation and calm. Jen was a fab host and yoga teacher - she has bundles of energy, alongside being a super calming presence. I came back having tried something new, having met great people who shared their wisdom and with the clearest head I've had in months! 🥰 I'd recommend to anyone and will 100% be going on another Wild Times retreat in the future, thank you Jen! x

Jenny ran a really beautiful retreat for three days in the Lake District. The location is just stunning, the yoga practice was amazing, and I loved the paddle boarding! There was free time to swim in the lake, go on walks, have a massage, read in the cosy sitting room, toast marshmallows by the fire, and I absolutely loved the walk to the waterfall and the swim! Jenny is just great - really relaxed, but incredibly organised - she made everything stress free, and thought of lots of little extras to make the trip really special. The herbal workshop was also really fun! I would definitely go on a retreat with Jenny again. Loved it! Felt like a really special and magical time.

I would thoroughly recommend Jen's retreat. I have attended quite a few but this was the best for yoga in particular. The practices were tailed to all, including those more advanced, they were varied, informative and meaningful. The venue in The Lakes was beautiful, relaxing and enspiring, food and facilities excellent. The paddleboarding and walks were lovely. I cannot fault my time there other than to wish it had been for longer.

This is an absolute must. If you are up for meeting like minded wonderful and interesting people and doing fun, new and exciting things The Wild Times Yoga Retreat is it. A perfect mix of relaxing Yoga, Mediation, Well Being inputs and having a laugh, doing exciting new things. It was our first (my hubby and I) but will definitely not be our last. See you all again soon Namaste.

Thank you Jen for a great retreat! Absolutely loved the yoga and the space is beautiful, very zen and great energy. Jen is a great instructor. Would definitely come back for another retreat.

I thoroughly enjoyed myself during the Wild Times yoga retreat: Jenny was an excellent, kind, considerate, generous and thoughtful yoga, SUP and SUP-Yoga teacher and Nab cottage as well as Rydal Lake stunning! I will book to go away again with Jenny without any hesitation!

This was an awesome experience, so much fun full of experiences.

Jen is a great yoga teacher. Young, full of energy, a positive attitude, strong and friendly.

I cannot put into words how much I enjoyed my wild times retreat. The perfect mix of organised activities & free time to explore or relax with a wonderful group of people! Jen has put together something really special here!

This retreat was the most beautiful experience all round. Jen welcomed us with an open heart and offered a fun-packed time that went above and beyond what I had imagined it would be like. She is a kind and compassionate instructor who gives you space to explore and discover yourself whilst feeling safe and supported. There wasn't a dull moment as we went from afternoon tea to canoeing, SUP yoga, learning how to make fire, relaxation in the sauna, yin yoga and - a real highlight - hike and swim in a nearby waterfall. All experiences are invitations and the schedule is flexible to take time for rest and recovery as needed. Thank you to Jen and Will for this joyful and wonderfully wild adventure!

Zen with Jen is amazing - this is something we will plan in to our yearly schedule to come and reset, re-invigorate, re-charge. Looking forward to experiencing different locations, new insights and challenges through yoga and paddle boarding.

Excellent retreat, great activities, beautiful accommodation in a stunning setting, very well thought out and delivered with kindness and support for all abilities. Fabulous food and good energy and encouragement from Jen.

The Wild Times retreat was simply amazing. I was a bit freaked beforehand that it might be a bit intense or weird or that I wouldn’t be good enough. It was so chilled and such a lovely bunch of funny down to earth people . Massively recommend to anyone needing relaxed time out.

Life changing experience. If you are looking for something new, different, boundary pushing or just enjoy yoga, meditation and water sports, i would well recommend The Wild Times. Excellent food, accomodation and staff, perfectly planned itinerary and overall incredible experience.

Many thanks for an outstanding weekend of Yoga and SUP. I absolutely enjoyed every minute, the meeting if like minded individuals all coming together to create a very special environment. The hours spent in both company and on my own have instilled gratitude that will stay with me. Exploration of the area, the views, the food and the laughter have lightened my year. This is an experience I wish I could bottle!!! I will attend future retreats hosted by Jen. Jen = Charismatic, fun, knowledgeable and approachable. A rare gem.

Jen is an incredibly knowledgeable yoga teacher and a joy to be around. Would highly recommend The Wild Times to anyone looking to reconnect to their wild nature.

What a great weekend in the lake district, my first time on a yoga retreat and what a treat it was. Jenny we had fun, met some lovely people and ate extremely well. Thank you for organising such a fabulous experience.

I attended The Wild Times Cornwall retreat and I cannot recommend it enough. I had never been on a retreat before and it totally exceeded my expectations and any previous concerns I had (yoga too challenging/not challenging enough etc.). Jen + team went above and beyond to make sure we were all enjoying the activities and making the most of the time we had there. I left feeling blissfully at peace with some lovely new friends, which I think says it all!

I loved everything about this retreat! The location was absolutely perfect and I love that we had different activities throughout the day and options to not do anything as well. The food was phenomenal, was obviously made with love and I couldn't get enough of it. I loved that the yoga was catered to different level as well and oh the sound bath was really lovely! I really like all the activities we did, it was so nice to learn about rewilding and oak trees and beavers. And the surfing and wild swim was so much fun and refreshing! Oh and puppy cuddles!!! That was a really lovely and much needed experience. I have to say that one thing I really appreciated was the chance to reset and ground in nature, and also to connect with other people as well. That's something I often find to be a challenge when living in a busy city like London. Overall, I feel like the retreat was the fresh breath of air that I really needed. Thank you Jen for making it so special!

Wild Times is nourishment for the soul, the retreat Jen has created not only connects you back to nature but takes you on a journey back home to yourself. I left with a smile and a full heart. Being a newbie to yoga I was made to feel welcomed by all and guided beautifully in our morning and evening sessions, and helped lovingly (with a few giggles) into new poses.

This retreat was a wonderful experience. Every detail was carefully considered, from the amazing food to the delightful goody bags, and Jen was a wonderful host. I'm so glad I went and can't wait for the next one.

Jen takes real care to ensure that every aspect of her retreat is beautiful, happy, relaxing and fun. I would go to another of her retreats in a heartbeat.

The Wild Times yoga retreat was a very special weekend to remember. Jen and the team have carefully curated an experience like no other and work hard to ensure that everyone has a fabulous time. The Cabilla location is magical, Beth’s food was second to none, and the collective energy of a group of strangers coming together to take time out of every day life was intensely rewarding. I arrived feeling frazzled and overworked; I left feeling renewed. Hugely grateful to Jen, the team - and the other wonderful guests who made it such a fabulous, enriching experience. Love, love, loved it. Thank you wonderful Wild Times!

As someone who struggles to step out of their comfort zone, the wild times allowed me to fully as comfortable as possible whilst doing this. It was my first time paddle boarding, as well as my first yoga retreat and everything met my expectations plus more. Jenny is so accommodating and just an overall lovely person who is a complete inspiration for all. Will definitely be returning to a wild times retreat in the future!

Jenny holds her retreats in the most "out of this world places" in places you cannot help but relax in. I am looking forward to attending my fourth retreat with her soon!

This is a unique experience in an amazing setting, you can not fail to walk away feeling refreshed and energised - thank you to the Wild Times crew.

This was my first yoga retreat, and I couldn’t desire more! Jen and staff made me feel at home from the very beginning and I learned a lot, not only practicing yoga but also staying still, living the moment and going with the flow. If you are looking for a restorative place, The Wild Times is definitely worth it!

Had a lovely relaxing weekend with Jenny in Cornwall. Gorgeous location with well equipped geodomes. Wonderful restorative yoga, meeting new people and enjoying the outdoors. I came home with a sense of calm.

5*!! Absolutely loved the Lake District retreat with Jenny. Massive step out of my comfort zone going solo but I’m so pleased I’ve done it. Amazing instructor and amazing person! Food was delicious and I enjoyed every moment! - Rebekah.

The Wild Times retreat with Jen was the best retreat I have been on. It was meticulously organised with little surprises along the way. Jen and Meg exuded such a calm, fun vibe which was constant throughout the weekend and the group was made up of such lovely people. I would wholeheartedly recommend Jen and her retreats to anyone looking to unwind and have an awesome amount of fun! - Jenni

I have never experienced such a peaceful time in my whole life. We get caught up in the chaos of the world and never have time to ourselves….this experience made me reset… made me think about me for a change and has influenced how I approach life. Simply wonderful. Jen has this amazing presence which makes you relax and appreciate life in a different way. Thankyou for everything. - Jane

Wonderful weekend retreat with a great mix of relaxation and adventure with a lovely group of people and fantastic instructor. Thankyou Jen. - Lisa

If I could bottle the feeling I get when I finish one of Jenny 's retreats I would... to remind me when I am feeling low and stressed how good things can be, and to remind myself I am worth it. Jenny you are amazing, imaginative, and I love the retreat experiences you offer. Thank you Namaste. - Sarah

This is the second retreat I have been on and I left feeling happy, relaxed, refreshed and at peace - much like the first. Jen and her team are wonderfully helpful, approachable, fun and they really do cater to everyone's individual needs. Would highly recommend this retreat and I will definitely be booking on to another. - Emma

I joined one of Jen's Lake District retreats on my own for a relaxing weekend, to be out in nature, to meet new people and do some yoga and thats exactly what I got, not to mention some of the best veggie food I've ever had! I really enjoy when retreats are welcoming of solo travellers and this definitely was. Perfect balance of rest and adventure. - Mia

I have now been on two Wild Times retreats. I can’t wait for my next one, an annual treat with my lovely sister. Don’t tell anyone else or there won’t be enough spaces for all the people I have recommended Jen to. This lady has passion, talent, professionalism and warmth. Everything she does makes you feel special and cared about in a light and joyful way. There is just enough structure to feel held and not too much, so you simply drift from one treat to the next without noticing that the plan is all joined up. - Angela

The Wild Times retreat was perfect in everyway. The yoga was great, the venue amazing, the activities perfect. Food out of this world. People even better, loved it. - Natalie

A beautifully paced retreat with a bit of something for everyone. Vinyasa, yin, médiation, soundbath, surfing, coffee, amazing food. Jen is creating something very special at The Wild Times. The locations and team she has around her make it even more amazing. - Kirsty

This was my first ever yoga retreat and it won't be my last! Jen through everything that Wild Times offered, the yoga, the activities and the delicious food, you took me to a place of total relaxation and connection to myself and the natural world, in ways I didn't know were possible. With what I now sees as your gentle progression of yoga, I progressed in ways I could only have dreamed of before I arrived. Cabilla on Bodmin Moor was the perfect location too. It was awesome! You are awesome! You have a real gift. May you go far. Hope to see you again. - Karen

A perfect gathering of cosmic energy amongst groovy people. - Beth

Most fantastic time. I cannot recommend it highly enough. It resets your mind and body and soothe the soul. - Tania

A stunning forest location with the varied British summer weather adding to the atmosphere. Jenny you were an amazingly competent yoga instructor throughout and a joy to be around. Positive encouraging and always cheerful. Your instructing was just the right level of varied difficult and relaxing yoga. I felt the difference to my body on Monday. The entire program was well thought out and set at a perfect pace and with enough variety. The group was a really great mix and size so we all got to know each other well over the time spent eating and doing activities together. Beth’s food was delicious and varied and I would eat it all again. Timing was amazing and we were never kept waiting. Williams calm confidence in introducing us all to woodland skills of fire lighting and carving was top notch. The equipment was well thought through. I will definitely book again on exactly the same program or other retreats in the knowledge that I can trust in you organizing a perfect balanced yoga experience. Thank you. 

The Wild Times retreat was exactly what I needed at exactly the right time. I laughed, I cried, I wrote, I talked, I sang, I bent, I twisted, I sweated, I swam, I balanced, I fell, I walked, I sat, I lay, I drank, I ate, I carved. I was alive. For the first time in a while I felt I was purely myself and completely grounded. I can’t wait for the next one! Thank you so much! - Danny

The retreat was just that. Lots of time to chill and relax but also really good value for money with activities if you so desired. The group were wonderful and the conversation flowed like we’d known each other for years. - Lucy

Jenny is a fantastic host. She guides you through yoga in such a relaxed way. Nothing is too much for her. The attention to detail she puts ito her yoga breaks is second to none. Thoughtful gifts and ideas . This was my second retreat with her and I will certianly go to another with her. - Sarah

Jen excelled at being an excellent host and putting us all at ease whilst keeping us active with varied yoga classes and giving us a chance to relax in between. Beth also created the most amazing home made food which I found inspirational. It was an amazing few days which left me feeling relaxed and rejuvenated! - Mel

Thanks Jen for an excellent experience, the yoga and extra activities were great with a lot of variation from mountain walking, going to Marrakech, having a roof top meal as well as sunset meal in the desert which were all brilliant. The hotel had several areas, if you wished to do some personal meditation but also several great areas to come together for food and socialising. The yoga was enjoyable as there were several different types everyday which provided me with many more ideas. I felt uplifted and rested by the end and have met some wonderful people. Thanks so much. Can't wait for the next one. - Kath

Just home from a wonderful week in Morocco with my favourite yoga teacher. It’s my second retreat with Jenny and I can’t recommend her highly enough. She has the most wonderful easy grace and is also great fun! Classes are only as taxing as you want to make them and Jenny is always willing to offer help if you need it. Her relaxation and “sleepy” yoga are bliss. I’m sure there is a huge amount of organisation and planning involved in looking after us all so well but the atmosphere is just pure “chill”. Thank you Jenny - I’ll be back. - Maxine

The Wild Times run by Jenny is a magical experience it offers yoga that accommodates all ages and levels but it’s more than just yoga other activities are offered during the experience and always a surprise. I highly recommend you try a retreat you meet lovely folk with like minded mindsets and Jenny accommodates so well for those who have difficulties with some moves and always presents alternatives. - Susan

Well I can't even begin to say how truly amazing this weekend was. I was very apprehensive about going on my own but my god I'm glad I did. I have learnt so much about myself found a sense of pride, Ive realised my strength and actually I do have a lot to offer this world. I've scoffed THE most amazing vegan food and practiced the best yoga and meditation I have ever done as well learning the art and super benefits of breath work. But most of I had the pleasure of meeting 14 truly inspiring women, from all walks of life....we have cried and laughed together, supported and nurtured each through this beautiful journey. Huge thanks to Jen, Georgie and Beth. @thewildtimesco I'll be back. - Stacey

A Wild Times retreat is good for the soul. I got so much more from it than I had anticipated and in a really short space of time I experienced so much. I signed up for the yoga but got so, so much more. It truly felt like a transformative experience and I cannot recommend it highly enough. - Jane

This was my 5th Retreat with Jenny. Each are unique! She takes a bunch of lost souls at the beginning of a retreat and helps us to relax, enjoy and live at one within our beautiful surroundings and with ourselves...To appreciate and love ourselves and to find joy! Thank you! I will be coming again. - Sarah
