In 2017, fed up with the unsustainable demands of our traditional careers, we founded Western Wellbeing, a yoga and wellness business. Mark had been a medical doctor for over 19 years and Pip started her career as a solicitor before moving into business consultancy. Neither of us had a strong sense of job satisfaction and we were painfully aware that our children were growing up rapidly and we were going to miss out on both their lives and ours unless we made some changes.
So, Mark resigned from his full time GP partner role and now has a portfolio career and Pip retrained as a yoga teacher. We wanted to use our skills to help other people in a holistic and tangible way and Western Wellbeing allows us to realise that ambition.
