About Nourish in Nature

Developed by two friends, Sara Rooney, Medical herbalist BSc (Hons) BA (Hons) and Fiona MacLeod, Yoga teacher (EYR 500), teaching yoga since 2007, both living and working in Central Portugal. Nourish in Nature offers uniquely integrated women’s health well being programs and retreats.

Having both worked extensively on retreats and private practice, they realised there is a need for integrated health focussed on the needs of  busy women, empowering them with information on herbs, nutrition, yoga and meditation, to encourage self care and improve their daily lives in simple ways.

Our next retreat March 3-9, 2019 is at the amazing Vale de Moses - you can book directly with them here.

Our aim is to offer high quality integrated women’s health resources. On both our retreats and online resources to help you imprve your health, vitality and well being.
