The 2024 Passion Project

Have you ever wondered what your ultimate purpose in life is? Over the past few years we've been on our own emotional and spiritual journeys of growth. We are grateful to work in fields that are purposeful and in line with our core values. Our mission in life is to share our professional passions, expert knowledge and personal insight with you.  


This year we are bringing you a series of affordable interactive workshops for the body and mind. We offer free spaces to those who need them, please contact us and we will register you no questions asked. Perhaps you can share your new knowledge and power to someone else who needs it too. Workshops have limited spaces so please don't delay in signing up or contacting us to join. 


Topics vary from fitness training, sports, mental wellbeing & biomechanics. Please check back regularly to see when new topics have been added and join our spam free mailing list to get £10 off and be updated when they're live to book.
