Hide in the sky was born on an overnight bus in rural india, when a travelling yogi met a travelling chef... By combining our passions of Yoga, Travel, Food & Self-Appreciation, we started to form the foundations of Hide In the sky. A project we dream to share with the world. With the added years of experience caring for others professionally, We specialise in creating an environment where people can escape, slow down, relax and restore themselves within beautiful, serene & natural surroundings. Come with us, and hide in the sky
A word from Glenn...
Food is fuel, we all know that deep down. Since recently becoming a certified Fitness Instructor the importance nutrition plays in the role of your well being has become paramount in my thinking. I believe nutrition has been well documented but less well understood en masse.
After reflection upon fifteen years of hospitality experience, I realized, there have been periods where i have really loved myself and how my body feels in terms of the fuel i give it. However, I can say I have also eaten junk, been too busy/stressed to exercise, drank too much and generally not respected the engines that lie beneath my chassis. We all have our own vices and these shouldnt always be disgarded, your brain appreciates the endorphines a treat gives it, but as myself and Sara say, 'balance is key'.
Hide in the sky and the role i play is really a representation of the food i would want to eat and the chef ive never been able to be under the employment of others. I dont believe fine dining food has to include a multitude of creams, butters, foams, fats, powders and flavour enhancers to produce great food. I love the feeling of sourcing a local ingredient and finding the purest way of enhancing there flavours whilst retaining there nutritional value and presenting it in a way you would still say “wow”.
Being able to create something like Hide In The Sky with your partner is a gift unlike any other. She brings out the best in me. With everything we do together we love making others happy, so come hide with us, we’ve been doing it all our lives and I think we’re getting pretty good at it by now...
A word from Sara...
Teaching yoga is just the funniest feeling. Put me in a room with a few people and ask me to talk in front of them, I freeze, but, give me a room full of yogis and I light up. I think it is because I care about people. It makes me so happy when I connect with others and can help them feel things within body or mind, giving them the tools to connect deeper with themselves. It is very powerful; sharing, being, moving and breathing together. It unites us. Plus, a connection that is forged on love allows you the space to be vulnerable, whether teaching or practicing, it is a humbling experience. Yoga helps to slow things down to a pace where I can process whats going on around me. It helps to put things in to perspective and teaches patience. Most of all though, I feel it teaches acceptance of self, to love oneself, and I want to help others with this idea of self love.
Glenn keeps me grounded. It is quite easy for me to get lost in a little yoga bubble but Glenn is the half of Hide in the Sky that keeps it real. He helps me to understand what peoplewith stressful jobs or life situations actually need from me and how I can help. One of the most powerful things my yoga teacher said to me a long time ago is “don't teach what you know, teach what they need” and it is something I always come back to.
A few years back I started up a yoga club, where my main aim was to make yoga approachable and affordable, to spread it as far and wide as possible. In my home city of Edinburgh I ran donation based classes. Plus, classes for hospitality folk who live very fast paced lives and may not otherwise give themselves this time to focus on themselves. I love to organise get togethers within the community where like minded people can come, practice yoga and enjoy a glass of wine or tea while having a good chat! Wherever I may go, I try to spread yoga and firmly believe that everyone can benefit in some way from a regular yoga practice.
in summary, I like unicorns, jars, rainbows, magic, fluffy clouds, red wine, laughing, big walks, snowboarding, the colour yellow, storms, cosy jumpers, autumn, passionate music, the moon, coffee , sunshine on my face, long train journeys and throwing myself in to cold water. i love my family and i love being around good people.
