The Gut

The Gut is an evolving retreat and event based company, bringing holistic and wellness topics to the table for discussion.

THE GUT is a wellness platform curated by Anna Boglione, the daughter of Petersham Nurseries founders Gael and Francesco. THE GUT looks at the interconnection of planetary and human health to encourage healthy living and offline healing. Through spiritually and scientifically rooted practices, such as yoga, breathwork, nutrition and mediation, they hope to help reconnect individuals with themselves, their surroundings and nature, inspire change and ignite curiosity.

Talks, retreats, workshops, sound and dining experiences are held at London locations including Petersham House in Richmond, whilst abroad retreats include alpine cabins and Portuguese beach houses. Each retreat is carefully crafted with an underlining focus, from our microbiome to our connection to nature, they draw upon our diverse networks of practitioners to bring each event to life.

With our ethos of slow living, The Gut invites you to take a step back from our fast paced lives, to experience a weekend of being mindful, pleasing the senses and celebrating our connection with nature.

A weekend away at Il Casale Denari - a 15th century converted Augustinian convent, practicing slow growing of seasonal flowers.

Through the Summer, acclaimed chefs will couple their culinary skills within these serene surroundings to host a hands-on cooking class and create special meals for guests with the abundance of local produce. Enjoy the weekend with early morning yoga sessions, deep tissue massages at the spa and relaxing in the pool.
