“Unforgettable. This was a bold journey into nature, the sea and my soul. Stella is a wonderful yoga teacher and she created a magical space for us all to embrace our inner spirit and truly come alive.”


“Awaken by Salt is a perfect pause from day to day stresses - A place to submerge yourself in natures elements and completely unwind, breathe and let go. I arrived feeling restless and anxious, left feeling reenergised and peaceful. A wonderful balance of yoga. surfing and free time, with delicious food and a great atmosphere throughout. Beautifully organised by the perfect host Stella, who is kind caring and accommodating. I would wholly recommend SALT retreats to anyone wanting to experience a wholesome and inspiring retreat.”


“Going on the Awaken by Salt Retreat has been another first in my recovery and every first is a positive way forward. I feel a sense of personal achievement especially conquering my fear of diving under the waves. Mindful walks along the beach at sunrise were breathtaking. Yoga at sunset was serene. The overall atmosphere, energy, food, new friends, detachment from the digital world was an absolutely amazing experience. I would like to thank Stella and everyone at Awaken by Salt who made this retreat such a special experience.


“I totally unplugged, paused and tuned in to Mother Earth with an expert salty soul guide. Stella @ Awaken by Salt has exceeded my expectations on all levels of nourishing the layers within. I immersed myself in the elements and became my own alchemist I left feeling rejuvenated physically and mentally. I totally recommend this to anyone who is wanting to experience something new or heighten your existing experience as a yogi or surfer. Stella stoked my fire, I’ll be back.”


“A beautiful, open and welcoming retreat in a very special and unique location. Stella brought openness and kindness throughout the weekend, the food was delicious and the time spent outside, practising yoga and in the sea surfing left me feeling very fulfilled.”


“This was my first ever retreat, Awaken by Salt did not disappoint, is a fantastic retreat and is ideal for the beginner as well as those with more experience. More men should have an interest in a Surf + Yoga retreat ... they are so missing out. Oh and did I mention a great good bag awaits for you on your arrival.”


“As someone who suffers from a mixture of anxiety and health issues, working with Stella has been invaluable to my wellbeing. Within a short time of regular yoga sessions my flexibility, energy and outlook on exercise (and the universe) - as well as my personal priorities, have taken a completely positive turn for the first time in my life. Having dabbled in yoga for a number of years, I can’t recommend seeing Stella privately highly enough, for a targeted approach to a complete body overhaul. Focusing on specific personal poses, flow, balance and meditations, her approach to life is genuine, infectious and inspiring.”


"Stella has been a shining star of guidance to me during a black sky of pain and heartache.  Somehow in a her authentically calm way, Stella has guided me back towards my true self.  I was experiencing heightened anxiety as a result of an unhealthy relationship.  Stella not only helped me address the drivers behind that anxiety but also supported me when the relationship ended suddenly. Without her words, I believe I would not have been able to handle this outcome, I may have delved further into my anxiety and drifted further from my true self. Her coaching is raw, real and from the heart. What makes Stella’s coaching unique is her ability to empower. Any decisions I have made, or guidance I have followed ultimately came from within me, but Stella’s words were the vessel that helped me drown out the external noise and tune into my inner voice.  
She connected with me, truly saw me and used her amazing energy to guide me back to my own unique path. I will forever be thankful to her. "


"I had been contemplating a career change for over 4 months and was completely stuck in a rut. I met Stella and we talked about everything. My mental and physical well being, diet, needs, dreams and aspirations and she really hit some raw nerves as I opened up and as a result I felt this weight lift off my shoulders and all of a sudden it was 100% clear what path I should take.  Within 3 weeks of working with Stella I quit my job, started with a new company and  started my own side business. Nobody should be afraid of change or getting help. Stella has a gift and I would encourage anyone to work with her. "
