There is a lot that happens behind the scenes before any retreat or holiday starts. The AY HQ as we like to call it is a busy hub of excited activity to make these retreats as special as we can for you. And here are the fabulous team that make these things happen. Meet the team.
Founder and Managing Director
Michelle has always had a love of nature, travel and wellness since a young age and how the connection between all three is the best tonic for mental and physical well-being. Travel is in her blood as she grew up in Venezuela and Kenya and then spent her twenties living in the French Alps, Sardinia, The Dolomites and Japan. Having been a lifelong veggie and practising yoga since she was 17, AdventureYogi is the combination of all of her favourite things.
Michelle is the director of AY and spends her time working on business development, planning and creating new holidays and getting creative with marketing. Most recently, she has been working with a carbon measuring company to work on AdventureYogi’s sustainability ethos and making sure we are putting people and the planet as a priority. She also joins on retreats and you may even catch her on the phone!
Starting her career as a tour host, Emma has been working in adventure travel for over 18 years. She is passionate about operational quality and brings her expertise to Adventure Yogi working on the safety and growth of our retreats. She is also a qualified yoga teacher, teaching close to her home on the Sussex coast.
Philly works closely with Michelle in researching exciting locations and beautiful venues for potential new yoga adventures. She uses her experience of travelling to a myriad of destinations, combined with her appreciation of the natural world, to ensure that the venues are not only in stunning locations, but also have sustainability and nature at their core.
Marketing & Social Media Manager
As our Marketing and Social Media Manager, once the retreats are set up it is Katie’s job to create a strategy to promote and sell our retreats. She creates content, email marketing campaigns and works closely with Michelle to create and implement a marketing strategy to engage our community and share Adventure Yogi’s message.
