It was really lovely to be a part of the Dorset Leading Ladies feature in Dorset Magazine, that was apart of their honouring of women for International Women’s Day on 8th March 2023.
All contributors were asked, ‘what do you feel will be your great challenge for the year ahead?’
Mine certainly will be continuing to settle and reestablish both my business and family in Evershot, Dorset after the biggest and most stressful move/year of my life in 2022.
It was also a big and beautiful surprise to be featured in the Muddy Stiletoes article ’10 Dorset and Somerset women you need to know’ celebrating local women, also for International Women’s Day.
I was truly honoured indeed!!
Mellulah will be 12 years old this year in 2023! Its our birthday on 14th June, back in 2011 that was the day of the first ever Mellulah Yoga Retreat. I was just back from a silent retreat in Assisi, Italy and I had so much energy, inspiration and determination to create something beautiful back here in Dorset. I’m so happy to still be here offering what I love to you all.
Mellulah has been a completely organic creation. I never had a business plan, never had any money and never took the slightest risk. I was bringing up my three young children alone, back in 2011 they were 5, 7 and 12 years old, I had my hands full! But somehow, and I’m sure I have been receiving a lot of Divine assistance along the way, I managed to run up to 20 retreats a year, offer therapies and yoga classes during the week, teach Reiki courses, win all the amazing Dorset and South West Tourism Awards, a Muddy Stiletto award, continue my training and studying, most recently learning to play the gong and more.
Its been an incredible journey, that continues every day. I am so excited to see what comes now we have moved home and business to West Dorset, new energy, new people, new landscape to inspire and heal with, I am so looking forward to another 12 years at least!
