Our philosophy

Goodness knows we’re not paragons of virtue. We have days when we might make unhealthy choices. We have grumpy moments or hide under the duvet pretending for a second that we’re not grown-ups after all… but happiness is a way of life, not a destination. We try to make decisions every day that will improve our wellbeing whether that’s making time for yoga, going for a walk in our beautiful Devon countryside or eating healthy, nutritious food.

We will help you to make positive choices every day that will make you a happier and healthier person.

Our Story

We’re fed up with traditional careers. Mark has been a medical doctor for over 19 years and Pip started her career as a solicitor and then became a business consultant before retraining as a yoga teacher.

Neither of us had a strong sense of job satisfaction and were painfully aware that our children were growing up and we didn’t want to miss a single second.

So we’ve stepped out of the proverbial rat race. We want to do things a bit differently and see if we can use our skills to help people make tangible improvements to their lives.
