‘The Gut’ 2021 Retreats

This Summer, Anna Boglione, daughter of Petersham Nurseries founders’ and creator of ‘The Gut’ will host a series of intimate wellness retreats, held at locations including Petersham House in Richmond, and Boconnoc Estate in Cornwall. Designed to reset and rebalance the body by connecting individuals with nature and their surroundings, Anna works alongside a diverse network of holistic practitioners and Petersham Nurseries’ chefs to create different programmes centring around gut health.
Petersham House Day Retreats

On Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th July, a day retreat held at Petersham House in Richmond, explores the relationship between the gut and the brain, led by acclaimed psychotherapist, Carolyn Cowan. Carolyn will work through a series of kundalini movements to help mobilise the gut x brain axis, with a focus on the vagus nerve, which is the main pathway between the two. Taking guests on a journey of inner connection through a guided exploration of daily tensions and past traumas with use of kundalini practices, coupled with pranayama breath work, the retreat aims to relieve stress and create a sense of balance. Lunch will be served in the verdant filled private greenhouse of Petersham House, flooded with natural light and overlooking the gardens. The menu will be a nourishing meal from Petersham Nurseries’ chefs, with conversation led by Carolyn on the vagus nerve.
