Who I am
Gret has had a successful career as a senior fashion industry executive, spanning the past 20 years. During that time, she developed daily rituals to alleviate stress and maintain balance incorporating the practices of yoga and meditation with a sustainable lifestyle – thinking both of her personal well-being and the well-being of the planet. Over time, these practices and rituals became the foundation for her philosophy on Conscious Living.
Following 6 years at Michael Kors EMEA, where Gret was Vice President and sat on the Executive Team, she took a role with an American sustainable lifestyle brand to lead the European launch. In parallel, she began to set out a mindful programme to support busy individuals better manage life with a focus on alignment and personal fulfillment. Her mission is to connect people with their purpose and help them live more consciously.
Gret’s experience as a corporate executive has given her a unique set of insights in how to skillfully manage the challenges of high stress environments and the rigors of modern life. She provides intuitive advice and simple recommendations that lead to an improved state of mind and body, whilst creating a relevant connection to heart and soul.
Practices for modern Life
Gret has formulated a series of accessible concepts that link ancient wisdom with modern interpretations. She develops programmes for individuals and businesses that support the mind and body in the pursuit of work-life integration.
We all have an impact in life – on people, planet and society. Gret believes we can actively choose to generate a positive impact by being curious and contemplating our purpose.
Through contemplation, we have the opportunity to create change within our sphere of influence, which sends out ripples to society. Ultimately, this improves the impact of our collective well-being on the planet.
It all begins with choices and commitment. By choosing to take a moment of ‘me time’, educating ourselves and connecting within, as well as with our communities, we see the impact of our behaviour and make more conscious decisions.
Using ancient practices of yoga and meditation as the backbone of her methodology, Gret has identified key areas for personal development around emotional balance, physical movement, whole food nutrition and a sustainable lifestyle. Loosely woven together to form a more conscious approach, these elements also distil into a purer sense of self and purpose, making life and its challenges more rewarding – at home, work and at play.
