& HOLISTIC CHEF
"Yoga... it is a living process that changes moment by moment, watching when we eat, how we eat, when we walk, how we walk, what we say and how we say it. All these things must be present in us and we must be passionately interested in them all."

All that I offer through my work has come through my own personal journey. I combine a love of food, holistic cookery, yoga, bodywork and meditation in a way that helps and inspires others to discover what works for them.
My work with food education and cookery has become what it is because of yoga. For me there is a deep relationship between the practice on the mat and preparing a meal in the kitchen.
After over 20 years in the mainstream catering industry, I have spent the past 12 years refining and defining my work as a holistic chef. Bringing together the practice of yoga with the art of cooking, I bring a level of subtlety, depth and sensitivity that allows others to feel supported and nourished.
The food that I offer is much more than ‘healthy or ‘clean’ eating and the yoga I teach more than simply asana or physical movement. Through both, I am always looking for balance and harmony, integration on all levels and a quality of being that is calm, fluid and centered.
Work with me:
"Hayley’s intelligence, sensitivity to the energy of the ingredients, intuition and love for cooking is deeply apparent. Each dish is carefully considered in relation to what else is being served, at what point in the retreat and in accordance with what we were doing in the yoga practice over the days.
We all agreed that we were eating really delicious food, something more than just vegetarian fare. From the smell to the preparation, in all its colours and varieties, to the taste. The table dropped into mmmm’s and ahhh’s, all conversation pausing time and again as we enjoyed simply eating. Each meal is balanced in flavours, colours, textures, nourishing on all levels and keeping us comfortably satisfied for hours."

"I first tasted Hayley’s food as a client on a yoga retreat, my taste buds were so happy and my body was thankful. I quickly understood how important food was to my well-being and started looking into trying to improve my eating habits - but there was so much conflicting and confusing information out there.
I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to be Hayley’s intern in 2014. Her wealth of knowledge across many ‘healthy eating’ disciplines including Ayurvedic, 5 element theory, macrobiotic and raw, in addition to her ability to cut through the confusion, meant that not only was I quickly able to learn what suited me personally, but I also gained skills in the kitchen that work for my busy lifestyle.
If you have the opportunity to join Hayley on one of her cooking courses or retreats, then I recommend you grab that opportunity with both hands. She will literally give you skills for life."
