Chilled Mama

This Beds-based biz offers informative workshops in Bedfordshire and restoring retreats at Tofte Manor, to help mums of all ages and stages rebalance and rediscover themselves.

Founded by Toddington-based Cathy, Chilled Mama offers retreat days and weekends, antenatal and parenting workshops, as well as training for practitioners, to help mums of all ages and stages find their path.

Chilled Mama is all about feeling calm, confident and in control, giving busy and often overloaded mums the time and space to reflect and invest in self-care – something that’s so often overlooked – for the benefit of themselves and their families. Cathy’s workshops and courses take place in Toddington and online.

The retreats and courses offer loads of tools to help parents-to-be through pregnancy and advice for new mums, from birthing to starting solids and potty training, as well as opportunities to ask questions and allow women to explore their options.

Day and weekend retreats are held at the stunning 17th century Tofte Manor in Sharnbrook, where mamas have exclusive use of the grounds to wander around in and relax away from the stresses and strains of daily life. Guided sessions take place in the coach house with its private courtyard, crystal room and yoga studio, while healthy meals are included too.

So what do you do on a retreat? Moonlit walks, forest bathing, contemplative firepit ceremonies and swimming in the outdoor, heated, spring-filled pool (summer months) for starters, plus there are mindfulness and labrynth sessions or you can just explore the house, find a cosy corner to read in or even have a nap (yes, really, it’s allowed!)

But Chilled Mama is not only for new mums. It also supports parents of children of all ages (whether 9 months or 59!) and the retreat days and weekends are a real oppotunity to rest, restore, find your inner peace and rediscover YOU! I think we could all do with a bit of that in our lives, eh Mums? Now where do we sign up?
