A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US…
The Wild Times was created to help you reconnect to yourself, through reconnecting with nature.
THE WILD TIMES PILLARS
So many of us are feeling overwhelmed, anxious and burnt out. We make time to properly, deeply rest and ground yourself.
Many of us 'grownups' have lost the ability to play. Grow back down, explore & get creative just for creativity’s sake.
Try something new. Push yourself out of your comfort zone. Trust us — the colder, wetter and muddier you get, the better that hot drink will taste afterwards.
Now you're rested and you have challenged yourself, get into a meditative flow state: the perfect balance between effort and relaxation.
This is what we like to do at The Wild Times:
Simply being, outside, grounding into our bodies and into nature and properly slowing down.
Also challenging ourselves, trying new things, being open to learning and having a complete beginners mindset, flowing, exploring, and finding that childlike sense of wonder ✨

“This is the real secret of life -- to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.”
I believe in the healing, calming power of being outside. In 2020, after five years in the big smoke, I left to spend more time by the big sea. I love being in, on or by the sea, reading lots of books, taking my morning coffee outside, campfires and planning retreats, adventures (and adventurous retreats). I am now based between London and the New Forest, where I grew up.
I completed my first training 200 hour vinyasa teacher training with Emily-Clare Hill and Michael James Wong at the Frame Academy in 2017. I have since studied Yin & Ayurveda with The Yoga People, Assisting Techniques with Sunday School Yoga and trauma-informed yoga with Ourmala. I am a qualified BSUPA paddle board instructor and Level 2 SUPTA paddle board yoga teacher.
I love sharing the practice of yoga and any tools, techniques or little things that I have figured out along the way that can help others feel more connected to their bodies, to others and the world. See more on my Zen with Jen yoga website here.
We are proud to partner with Tree Sisters and Re:Earth.
In 2021 we planted 5 trees for every retreat booking made and in 2022 we are protecting the 5 square feet of kelp forest in the ocean with every booking.
