"The winter reset retreat wasn't only a weekend to recharge and replenish with amazing food and great yoga classes. No, it was WAY MORE: I walked away with a whole suitcase of ideas how to incorporate more health and wellbeing into my everyday life. Tiny little tips and adjustments which fit into every life, no matter how busy. I am still adhering to my daily routine with the new additions since the retreat and I feel great. I have also made many of the recipes Tianjin shared with us for myself and for dinner parties and they are always a hit!"
"Tianjin is wonderful yoga teacher and an incredible raw food and vegan chef. She has such awarm and nurturing nature which means you always feel looked after and in safe hands.I attended the winter reset retreat in November and it was exactly what I needed. The yoga was lovely, the food was delicious and the workshops were brilliant, I learnt so much and they were fun too!Tianjin has been my teacher for a while now and she is always my go to guru whenever I have any questions about yoga, well being and healing the body through yummy, nutritious food.. She's definitely my earth mama!"
‘’During the Vibrant Life and Eco- retreat it seemed like everything was coming together. The beautiful eco resort in Vale da Lama was the perfect place to chill, think, be aware and connect with yourself as well as with the other people in the group. It's not just a week away from busy city life, for me it was also very instructive. I got to know better what kind of food and most of all what way of life suits me best. I think I got a bit closer to what I really feel is important to me. Tianjin and Bianca created a good balance between yoga, nutrition and also time off to explore the area or just relax at the pool. Last but not least: the whole group, Vale da Lama community and Bianca and Tianjin were inspiring and fun to be around. We had lots of laughter and I would definitely recommend everybody this healthy and happy week!’’
"I had the pleasure of experiencing a Seasonal Yoga Retreat this past November and loved every minute! The ‘Winter Reset Retreat’ was held in a gorgeous manor house in the English countryside, which complimented the seasonal focus of the agenda perfectly. We were spoiled with the most delicious seasonal meals, 2 yoga classes each day (plus yoga nidra before bed!), raw food workshops focused on the holiday season, and numerous Ayurvedic health tips that are super easy to implement into your daily routine. They embodied a perfect balance of professionalism, warmth, and sparkle, which shone through as they shared a wealth of knowledge and expertise – everything you want in your retreat host! I came out of the weekend feeling wholly satisfied, calm, centred and well fed."
"Tianjin is such a lovely and inspiring person, and her way of teaching instantly gets you to focus on yourself and become aware of the beauty of pregnancy. When I first started the prenatal classes initially I felt like I was not doing so much, having practised yoga for some time before already. However, I soon realised Tianjin’s classes are exactly what you need to get a weekly moment of relaxation together with the little one growing inside of you. Her classes brought me closer to my inner strength and helped me prepare for labor. The constant repetition of finding softness through movement and breathing definitely made me feel more secure and strong. As soon as my contractions started I was able to automatically connect my breath to my body, and I am sure that Tianjin's classes have enabled the positive experience I’ve had giving birth."
"The Yoga & Raw Food Winter Retreat was a wonderful collaboration between two beautiful souls who complimented each other at every corner. Not only was the food we ate out of this world but being given guidance and recipes to take away at the end of the retreat was a brilliant concept. Tianjins passion for healthy food, what can be achieved and her delivery could not have been more inspiring. She IS the Goddess of healthy food!"
"I was fortunate enough to be referred to Bianca to explore natural options for my son after exhausting other treatments. Bianca was wonderful at explaining certain behaviours and the effects of foods and how they can be beneficial or detrimental to his health. We left her sessions feeling stronger, more confident and filled with knowledge about better choices for a healthier life for him and for the whole family. The positive changes to his health were incredible and we are forever grateful"
‘’Tianjin and Bianca did an amazing job cultivating a beautiful week in Portugal for myself and the other girls attending their recent Flawless Feast yoga retreat. Their excitement, knowledge and passion for the topics - from yoga to vegan & Ayurvedic lifestyles - made us interested in learning more and participating in the workshops. They'd chosen a truly magical location in Eco Resort Casa Vale da Lama in Southern Portugal where we spent our days doing yoga, learning about Ayurvedic principles, participating in nutrition workshops or just hanging out in the salt-water treated pool on site. The Flawless ladies created an incredibly relaxing and calming atmosphere for our group, which was filled with interesting ladies from around the world. I left feeling excited to head home to incorporate some of these practices into my every day routine. If anyone is interested in learning more about a healthy lifestyle, I could not recommend the retreats these two, along with the help of their lovely mom Christine, host. Thank you Bianca and Tianjin for a truly magical week!‘’
''Bianca combines her knowledge of nutritional medicine with her wellness coaching skills to help delve deep and really get to the root cause of the issues that are holding you back in your health. One of the things that first attracted me to Bianca as a practitioner is her holistic approach to healing. She highlights that good health is more than just food and nutrition - it is the food we eat, the movement we do and the mindset we embody. This holistic approach really helped me shift old behaviours and beliefs, allowing me to replace them with healthy, sustainable practices.Bianca provides practical tips that make her wholefood and seasonal approach to eating easy to adopt and follow. Her cooking workshops and nutrition talks are easy to digest, engaging and full of nourishing advice. I always leave feeling richer and inspired to take my health to the next level. Bianca has introduced me to the teachings of other health and wellness gurus, such as David Wolfe & Tyler Tolman, who are doing amazing things in the industry. This has broadened my knowledge in the field of nutritional medicine which I am eternally grateful for''
"I have been lucky enough to experience the joy that the Flawless Feast team deliver to all that they touch. Having dabbled with yoga on and off for years, when I started taking Tianjin's classes regularly, I noticed a huge change in my strength and flexibility. Her knowledge of anatomy, meridians and seasonal yoga is amazing, and woven into all her classes. On the a foodie note, the Flawless ladies really know their stuff! Combining their knowledge and expertise in the field of nutrition, raw cooking and Ayurvedic medicine, I have followed them around the globe! From Sydney to England and beyond, their amazing raw desserts and nourishing seasonally based Ayurvedic style dishes awaken all senses. I have been lucky enough to experience their food first hand at home, at parties and on yoga retreats. Once you have had their raw moonie pie, life will never be the same again!"
