Reclaim Your Self was founded in 2005 by me, Jools Sampson! I changed careers in 2004, moving from international development into the wellness world.
When I started, there weren’t many yoga holidays around so we were pioneers. I passionately wanted to create a yoga retreat community; something powerful and new, an excellent and inspiring space for people to share skills and wisdom, whether they be guests, team or our local hosts.
Having lived in East Africa for 5 years, I had a taste for working in interesting places and for seeking out destinations that are a bit off the beaten track, the places where beauty and nature make your soul sing.
We’ve kept the team small and our vision strong. Everyone on the team is following their dreams, sharing their expertise and best ideas. We enjoy being part of everything that happens on a retreat and we put our hearts into everything we do.
I am really proud of what we have created, it’s a team effort every step of the way. I am honoured to introduce my talented and much loved team below.
