Moya’s story is a vibrant tapestry woven with the threads of artistry, self-discovery, and a profound connection to the natural world. Her journey began with empowering women through the lens of her camera, igniting confidence and beauty within them. But life’s twists and turns led her to a verdant haven in the heart of the Kent countryside 8 years ago.
Here, amidst rolling hills and whispering trees, Moya’s childhood love for nature rekindled into a blazing passion. The countryside became her sanctuary, its beauty a balm to her soul, a source of balance and renewed purpose. It was this healing embrace of nature that inspired her to share its transformative power with other women.
And so, “The Nest” was born – a haven where weary souls find solace and restoration. Whether immersed in the tranquility of Moya’s Kent farmland or basking in the ocean breeze of the wilds of the North Cornwall coastline, each woman embarks on a journey of rejuvenation.
But Moya’s dedication to holistic well-being transcends breathtaking settings. As a certified Restorative Yoga Teacher and Reiki practitioner, she guides women on journeys of inner peace and physical rejuvenation. Her training as a Women’s Circle Facilitator further empowers her to create safe spaces for connection and shared experiences.
Today, Moya’s life embodies the transformative power of nature and the ripple effect of one woman’s passion. She walks alongside other women, no longer just through the lens of a camera, but through the transformative embrace of the natural world. Here, they rediscover their inner strength and beauty, blossoming into the vibrant versions of themselves they were always meant to be.
Moya’s “Nest” is more than a retreat; it’s a catalyst for empowerment, a space where women reclaim their radiance, one mindful breath and breathtaking vista at a time. So, if you yearn to reconnect with nature, awaken your inner strength, and discover the vibrant woman you truly are, let Moya be your guide.
