The Seedlings Team

Christopher Stuart-Allan

Husband, branding photographer and retreat co-host

We literally couldn’t do what we do without his undivided attention, humour and innate ability to consistently bring calm where ever he steps. Chris loves to sail, play his guitar and create memories of our events through his talented photography.

Chris is also available for branding and memory capturing photo shoots. This exciting branch of Seedlings can be found on Instagram as @seedling_photos_by _chris.

 

Chris is the facilitator of Jens dreams and also the voice of reason (when she listens!)

Mabel

Mabel

Seedlings Head of Security

Mabel is the retreat entertainer and cuddle monster. Without doubt she inevitably steals the show and is more of a distraction than help on vital admin days.

 

Mabel has been insistent that Cosy Cottage is dog friendly and even sometimes allows pets to come to the Harbour House.

 

Thank you Mabel for helping our guests heal and relax.

 

Also if you are allergic Mabel has the ability to disappear.

Clare Daneski

Clare Daneksi

Yoga Teacher

Clare works on Seedlings bespoke weekend retreats and day events . She teaches mainly from the foundations set by Pantajali, The 8 Limbs of Yoga, to encourage integration of the whole self, exploring the physical poses, the philosophies or 'ethics' of Yoga, breath, meditation, and self-discovery.

 

Her passion is inclusivity, so she strives to adapt as much as possible to each and every different body, ability and learning style. She tells her clients to see her not as an instructor, but as a guide in their own personal Yoga journey, encouraging a self-confidence and ownership that has often never been available to them before.
