I thought I ate healthily, but my visits to May really opened my eyes a bit further, and some of the things that you think are healthy are not so! May really encouraged me to add variety and to change some of my habits. It surprising how the body can adapt to new things and get hooked on really healthy foods! Thank you May

What is special about May is her practical approach to healthy eating and nutrition; she is an incredibly knowledgeable nutritionist, a mine of information (she packs you with nutritional tips) but she is also an amazing creative chef that openly shares her recipes and secrets with her clients just to make cooking as easy as possible!I also joined her Yoga retreat in a Chateau in France in June 19; the retreat was a perfect combination of things I had never ever found elsewhere.What I mean is that usually yoga retreats are just about yoga, while cooking demonstrations are just about new recipes, or holidays in France are just about sightseeing ... so having a 4-night stay with 2 daily yoga classes + super delicious & healthy meals, cooking demonstrations packed with nutritional tips in an amazing French chateau ...all in one is definitely something I loved! Yoga and cooking were done at a professional level, and yet with no non-sense or radical approach, and after experiencing the retreat I now understand what is “the May-way”! Doing things seriously but in a doable way, so that when you come home you feel you can keep doing the same things without making a revolution! And that was exactly my case!As an “occasional” yogi, I was afraid I might find people too expert for me and that I could feel a bit out-of-place, while what I had was an amazing yoga teacher who ran classes very professionally (no chit chat in class!) for people at all levels, but is the funniest and friendliest teacher ever out of the class! Finally ... May: she is such a great host, a chef and a nutritionist! As a healthy eater,l was looking for new recipes, but May... oh my, she’s given a lot more! Nutritional tips, new ideas and good motivation to keep up eating healthy! I have been to many cooking shows but what is special about May is that not only she cooks well but she adds nutritional tips that make you aware of what you are eating and why! She is so knowledgeable that you can literally ask her everything on nutrition! Yet she is so open to listen to other people’s way of doing things, never had the “I-know-it-all” approach... the which thing makes her even more adorable 😍 Then I loved cycling to the vineyards, reading in the garden, sunbathing by the pool, dining “al fresco”, and having the opportunity to meet a lovely group of new people

I have just come back from a 4 day retreat lead by May which was both relaxing, informative and fun. May knows everything you might want to learn about nutrition and manages to convey it in a relaxed and fun manner along with lots of ideas for simple, time efficient recipes. She is brilliant at inspiring others to try and eat and cook in a more healthy way.Thank you. Charlotte Lloyd

I cannot recommend May Simpkin enough. My daughter, who desperately needed help with her bad eating habits and lack of understanding about her nutritional health, has become a healthy eater overnight. She's going back to Uni in her second year and I was so worried about what she was going to eat now she's in a shared house and having to cook for herself. I will worry no more! She has found a love of cooking healthy food but best of all has an understanding of how the food she eats has an impact on her health and well being. I also attended one of May's cookery workshops and learnt so much about what types of food will nourish our bodies for longterm health. I wish I had had this advise when I was younger but I'm so happy it has made such a positive impact on my daughter.

Really inspiring few days away at May's Health and Yoga Retreat. It's a great way to kick start a new focus: making what you eat count. Great practical demonstrations, you can see exactly how easy it is to make nutritious meals, and then get to enjoy them too. May is a font of knowledge on nutrition with a real practical and approachable style that makes it fun. The yoga was excellent - pushing us all to test our capabilities, and realise improved posture and flexibility within a short period of time.

May is a mine of information on nutrition. She has a wonderful relaxed manner and is very approachable. I spent just 4 nights on one of her retreats in France and came away having eaten some tasty and nutritive rich meals which my digestive system gave thanks for. I came away with some new ideas for fabuous nutritious meals that look good and taste good, that my family and dinner guests would love.
