Our Wild Roots

In 2001 our founder Tara Wood, returned to her childhood home on the Kenyan coast with a science degree from Oxford and set up her ‘jungle gym’.

Having grown up in nature, she knew that our modern lifestyles were causing us problems, from stress and malaise to chronic injuries.

Inspired by the rejuvenating effects she saw on those who immersed themselves in the wilderness of her Kenyan home, Tara designed an experiential course called ‘Wildfitness’.

Her vision? To help anyone rediscover the joy and transformative power of their own natural potential.

The Three Pillars of Wildfitness

Our philosophy centres around three core pillars.

Wildfitness, put simply, is the practice of listening to your body and mind and responding to your instinctual needs to move naturally, for deep relaxation and for unprocessed food.

This philosophy is as powerful as it is simple and has the potential to change your life.

Pillar One: Wild Living

Learn how respecting your body’s natural rhythms and natural stressors, quality rest and restorative recuperation will help you to feel rejuvenated, balanced and less stressed.

During your time with us we will provide you with the skills needed to implement all that you learn into your daily lives back home…helping you to live that little bit wilder.

Pillar Two: Wild Eating

Modern lifestyles have a way of complicating our relationship with food. On our retreats we will help you to understand the simplicity of food by providing you with an abundance of delicious, locally sourced, home cooked meals that will leave you feeling nourished, lean and energised.

Most importantly, head home feeling empowered with the principles needed to continue a life of eating well and living healthily.
