Sandy Hughes

Functional Medicine Coach

I have always been deeply passionate about the magnificent functioning of the human body and the role healthy lifestyle plays on our quality of life. My studies into health and wellness began in 1998 at the Institute of Natural Health in Johannesburg with many courses and modalities following over the years. I entered the world of design in 2004 and have had a successful business in this space for the past 10 years.

I graduated from The Functional Medicine Coaching Academy (USA) in 2019.
I am thrilled to find myself back in this exciting field at this time! I believe that health is true wealth and that by living in a “healthful” way in tune with the cycles and rhythm of nature and by knowing our own unique bio data and how to work with it that we can create vibrant health, abundance of energy and the clarity of mind required to achieve our greatest dreams and truly live as the best version of ourselves.

She Lived

She never smoothed her wild edges.
She never stopped writing new chapters.
She fell.
She rose.
She danced.
She unraveled.
She let go.
She evolved.
She was a tangled mess.
She was strong.
She was fierce.
She was brave.
She was a badass.
The ocean was her therapy.
Grace was her religion.
Imperfection was her backbone.
Forgiveness was her freedom.
She lived like there would never be enough time.
She lived like there was fire in her veins.

The Women’s Rewilding Retreat was precisely this – a chance to let our hair down and engage with the elements – grounding in the earth, swimming in lakes, harnessing light in our sun salutations, journeying into sound, dancing around a fire, sharing insights, experiences, dreams, and spectacularly divine food. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Thank you, Sandy and Courtney.

I would highly recommend that any women attend this retreat. The facilitation is gentle, firm and spot on. The functional medicine, yoga and sound journey sessions are perfectly balanced with enough free time to rest and restore to your core. The ultimate highlights are the feasts – food made with so much love, attention and the freshest ingredients, and the wild swimming… The dances under the stars, the connection to each other and nature, and the beautiful lodge space to do it make this retreat a simple must-do. It was a high value for money exchange, and I will do it again in a heartbeat, and take more women with me to share the experience.

Mari

I’ve never delved so deeply into an experience holding such authentic, loving, joyful & compassionate Truth. Showing up exactly as I am, and being embraced with unconditionally loving support – opened up the most massive internal space for healing to express itself through grace. There was not a moment that went by where I tried to (even subconsciously) avoid deep presence, every second held such power. And, not only did the space provide light to be anchored at a given point in time but it has served as an eternal flame, and an everlasting love.
Thank you deeply to everyone involved.

Aimee

This is a beautiful part of the world – the breath taking views and peaceful tranquility have stolen my heart. Sandy and Courtney are both incredible women and hold a magical space. Wellness and music combine effortlessly to create this incredible retreat experience.
