Zoe and Gemma have known each other for over 20 years, having met at The Rambert Ballet School when they were 17 years old. They both went on to dance for professional Ballet and Contemporary companies in the UK and abroad. 

Following their Careers in Dance Gemma became a make up artist and Zoe became a pilates teacher. Gemma has spent many years working as a professional makeup artist and Zoe has been teaching Pilates for over 13 years.

Having a mutual love for beauty and health, fitness and wellbeing, and having always had a dream to combine skills and work together. They decided to start Collingwood and Rayne Retreats. Organising days for like minded women to get  together and re- charge their batteries. 

Collingwood and Rayne Retreats are for all ages. New mums, mothers and daughters, small groups or individuals who want to learn something new and enjoy new company. The retreat days are also a great place to take time off and recharge if you have a hectic lifestyle.

Each retreat is unique, Zoe and Gemma work with many different therapists including nutritionists, professional chefs, massage therapists, aromatherapy practitioners and a wonderful Olit teacher. The retreats also include crafting, make up workshops, holistic beauty treatments, pilates, yoga and healthy skin care workshops. The retreat venues are always stylish, or cosy, relaxing and lovely places to be. 

We can organise a bespoke events for small groups and regularly run events through out the year. We can also be booked for corporate days.
