Socials - Workshops - Events - Supper Clubs

Yes, it's true, I’m absolutely in my element when I’m organising someone or something (my poor family and friends!). I really enjoy bringing people together to share ideas and experiences; learn from one another and make new connections, so in addition to my Gin & Yin Retreats, I’m also excited to tell you about some wonderful collaborations coming up this year

Delivered via Zoom - I'll send everything you need to enjoy this 


Worried about going 'out out' to workshops right now but want to find new ways of boosting your wellness? Well, worry no longer, I'd like to deliver an interactive 'in in' sip and sniff experience to you at home.

On Weds 5th August from 7.30 pm for approx. 90 mins I will be joined by Rina Bailey, co-founder of Dotty's Oils, to talk about how high-grade essential oils can boost your mood, help you focus and potentially improve your sleep, while also enjoying a G&T via zoom (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic gin available)

Did you know you can also add some of the dōTERRA oils to your drinks if they're Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®? Who knew?! I add dōTERRA peppermint oil to my water bottles on my retreats - it's so refreshing.

This interactive workshop is £25 and will include everything you'll need (including the oils, the G&T / Gin alternative, and tonic to make this a fun and immersive experience. To bagsy your spot at your own kitchen table - you can send payment via Paypal to (please add your email address to the notes) or email me at the same address and I'll send you the zoom and payment details.

Yin-ergising Yoga Session followed by a Gin Tour, Tasting & Light Bites

Saturday 5th September 2020 - 4 pm to 8 pm

The Gin Kitchen Distillery, Dorking

After a lovely afternoon last year bathed in glorious sunshine, I'm delighted to be back in the Surrey Hills at ‘The Gin Kitchen’ for another afternoon of ‘yin inspired’ yoga (all abilities welcome) with thanks to Adele Smyth, Founder of @Purebodybyadele, followed by an introduction to the ‘The Gin Kitchen Distillery’ where you'll hear more about their story so far, the gin-making process, whilst also trying each of their gins including Gutsy Monkey; Dancing Dragontail (my favourite) and Blushing Monkey.  You will also experience first-hand the love, skill and laughter that goes into handcrafting these luxurious spirits, which has led to them supplying their gin to some of the UK's finest hotels, as well as Fortnum & Mason no less. To keep it all balanced, the distillery tour will finish with a wonderfully healthy seasonal buffet, to be enjoyed with a G&T of your choice (well of course).

Ticket Price:  £35.00 - All abilities inc. total newbies welcome

This Essential Oils Workshop May Contain Gin

Mon 5th October 2020 – 7.30 pm to 10 pm

No. 97 - 'Award-Winning' Restaurant & Gin Bar, Surbiton


I’ve always been interested in essential oils and how they make me feel – I recently discovered dōTERRA oils through Rina Bailey (part-time Criminal Barrister no less and essential oils specialist) from Dotty’s Oils ( and wow I haven’t looked back … they smell and taste incredible, so much so, I’ve now started blending some of my own rollerball blends to give to ladies on my retreats, it just so happens that Geranium & Thyme also starts with a G&T … genius! Did you know you can also add some of their oils to your drinks if they're Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade®?? - I particularly love adding a few drops of peppermint oil to my water bottle – tastes good, feels good and smells delicious too. Rina is a font of all knowledge when it comes to the best uses and benefits of the oils, so if you’d like learn more over a G&T join us at No. 97 for a gin sipping social with some wonderfully essential ingredients join us.

Ticket Price: £45.00 (not incl Eventbrite fee sorry)
