Co-Teacher Corrie McCallum

Corrie’s teaching style is fluid, inspired by degree level Osteopathy and Psychology studies to create a biomechanical yet creative approach, inspired by the freedom of her dance background. (Something we both have in common there!)

Corrie guides her students to practice from a place of mindful engagement, rather than creating more strain, tension and ego. For many people, loving their bodies feels like an epic task, Corrie facilitate a space that fosters acceptance as a first step, love might come later. (We are both) passionately anti-diet culture and practice the HAES approach (health at every size).

Being qualified in many areas allows Corrie to cater for her clients’ complex needs with a varied range of knowledge and experience. She lives what she teaches and has a regular yoga and pilates practice, as well as rock climbing and running obstacle courses, weight lifting, swimming and cycling. She sees activism as a big part of her role as a teacher and there are some key areas in which she is currently pushing her own learning, such as anti-racism, fatphobia, anti-diet culture, abelism, health care inequalities, feminism and environmentalism.

Corrie is a dear friend and mentor to me and we can/will learn so much form being in her presence. I’m honoured that she will be joining the retreat in September. Above all else she is a right laugh and we’ll all just have a fabulous time together.

About Annie (our Chef)

Annie McKenzie is an actor, writer, director, producer… all round artist extraordinaire!

She also happened to appear on MasterChef in 2016 and came sixth. Wild.

Since then, Annie has worked in various kitchens, hosted supper clubs, worked as a private chef, launched an immersive dining company called Scripts for Supper and was head chef of Shotgun Carousel’s ‘Red Palace’ at The Vaults in 2019 before most recently launching a plant based comfort food delivery service in London called Annie’s Kitchen.

Guided by an international palate thanks her French heritage, Annie’s food has a modern European feel with the comfort of stuff your mum (or dad, or primary caregiver) used to make.

Some mates have said things like “humble”, “clever” and “joyous”, while people like Jay Rayner have said her food is, “Rich. It’s serious. It’s delicious” and Marcus Waring noted, “You’ve got a serious cook on your hands”.

Annie is really excited to be coming on board and working with Alice and Corrie to deliver a short week of yummy food, yummy yoga and spending time in your even yummier company!
