The Well Connected offers the most luxurious yoga retreats, detox juice retreats, wellness breaks and events in the UK. We bring the vibrancy of the thriving wellness scene to spectacular venues in the North of England and put you directly in touch with high profile wellness experts.

Ultra-luxe pilates retreats, juice cleanses, fitness breaks, healthy supper clubs, yoga brunches and wellness talks…We offer them all and more, all with well known teachers, bloggers, writers, in collaboration with the hottest wellness trends and all in the most beautiful, inspiring venues.

We make investing in yourself and your wellbeing a luxury experience.

This is us

We do not advocate any one way of living. Everyone is different and what works for one person does not work for another.  But we strive towards helping all our clients achieve a balanced, happy, healthy life through investing in themselves, accessing the best advice and most-importantly, taking time for themselves.  Our wellness retreats and events are not in any way about deprivation or any extremes.  We want you to look after yourself by eating well, treating your body with kindness and achieving a balance in work, life, body and mind. The Well Connected is based in the English Lake District and was founded by Nici Hewitson, a working mother of two young children with a thirst for knowledge on all things to do with wellbeing.  For almost 20 years Nici has loved exploring and experiencing everything from juicing and yoga, to natural skin care and meditation but to access the latest in the wellness industry she found she was having to head to the capital.  With contacts at some of the best hotels and venues in the North, she decided to change this and curate the luxury yoga retreats, wellness breaks and wellbeing  events she herself wants to attend.
