JudyMay Murphy, International Speaker and Success Coach
"The word ‘retreat’ is not enough to explain the experience we’ve had both individually and shared together. The enjoyment of simple moments like star gazing in a beautiful countryside garden, the taste of recipes cooked with care, the wildness to fully connect to nature through yoga - starting when its cold and foggy outside and ending with warm rays of sunshine, the appreciation of wisdom of that huge tree in the forest through a ceremony, the bravery to forgive, let go, love, give and take through spiritual journeys, the smell of aromatherapy scents and fresh flowers filling our souls, personal affirmations and aims written in a dark room lit by cosy candles, the power of laughter shared by a group of strangers that strangely turned into a lovely tribe in such short time.. An experience that is created and shared by a beautifully unique and wholeheartedly natural soul, Josephine, who touched our lives - our beginnings. And so it is."
"If you ask me what I do my answer is simply: I Live. Right Now. It's an honour to share my journey and experiences with YOU as you are NOW reading these lines. It is my hope that everything I can help you to find and explore within yourself will benefit not only you but everyone that YOU come into contact with. We are all woven together in this beautiful web of life and the more we become aware of our souls yearning for expression and for LOVE at all times the brighter a present and eventually a future we are collectively creating.
Take good care of yourself. You are, have always been and will always be loved."

Josephine McGrail is an international wellness coach, transformational healer, public speaker and yoga facilitator with over 15 years of experience. With a background in ballet and acting Josephine bridges wellness and creativity in a down to earth manner. Encouraging us all to create the life we dream of. She is also the co founder of Nordic Sisters who run retreats and events across the planet, and she is frequently featured in Yoga magazine, Huffington post and Wellness Magazine.

All of Josephine's talks and workshops are rooted in her understanding that our mind, body and spirit are all interconnected and for one to be healthy we need to look at all aspects of our being and lifestyle. Through her down to earth, yet informative talks, people walk away with tools and tips that help them find balance in every day real life.
How it all started:
Josephine's mother is a natural healer and so she was brought up in the tradition of gracefully bridging the world between the visible and the invisible. Understanding that in order to find peace in the outer world we must first attend to our own inner garden, make peace with what we find, and always ask for help from our friends the light workers. However when she enrolled at The Royal Danish Ballet, age 9 Josephine immediately felt a need to find a space that was just hers. To help her connect back to her mothers teachings and ways of being. Almost by accident, at the age of 12, she attended her first ashtanga vinyasa class. This turned out to be a meeting that would forever change her life; "I knew from that moment that one day I would study and continue this ancient tradition somewhere, somehow. All though it took many years of denial; 7 years at The Danish Ballet, 3 years at Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance, 14 years of working as a full time dancer, model and actress travelling all around the world working with Elvis Costello, Tim Burton, L'Oreal, ITunes, Lexus, Coca Cola etc. However, always running to the nearest yoga studio to try and connect back to my own truth in the midst of a world that was full of false hopes and distractions."
Finally, after years of suffering from exhaustion from the pressure of the industry and a lot of self doubt she took her official yoga teacher training with The Yoga People and shortly after she also went on to study at The Bridgit Healing Centre in Glastonbury with Jay and Kestrel. She slowly started to regain her own inner strength and now does what she loves for a living teaching, sharing and healing all around our beautiful planet Mother Earth. Her yoga style draws strongly from her dance background and fuses the traditions of Meditation, Vinyasa, Yin as well and Shamanism: Helping YOU finding your way back to YOU.
She sees yoga and healing in general as medicine for the body, mind and spirit and am deeply inspired by how the mind body connection can help us live a more balanced life with ease and grace.
She aspires to learn from everything life brings her and am deeply grateful to all of her teachers - especially including all of her students and clients which are all her greatest teachers;)
