About ‘Awakening into 2018’

Are you ready to get clear, focused and inspired for 2018?

Looking back over the last year, did 2017 satisfy what your soul was longing for?

Are you living your life how you want to be living it right now?

And if not, WHY not . . . WHAT is getting in your way?

Would you love to have the time and support to get clearer on your vision?

To feel more PURPOSE?

To experience more JOY?

Are you ready to experience a deeper CONNECTION with yourself?



“Such an amazing healing space was created at ‘the Awakening into 2017’ retreat at Kodama which I would describe as ‘Healing Hideaway nestled in the trees’. I feel totally different to how I felt when I arrived. I feel like I have been nurtured, supported and guided. Louise thought of everything possible from the food to the enlivening yoga. Actually there are no words to describe the food it was so good! I am taking away from this weekend the importance of Morning rituals and meditation plus feeling ‘Acceptance of what is’. What I really loved about this weekend retreat at Kodama was Louise’s tranquillity as she led us in the right direction as the weekend progressed. Louise’s guidance is a gift you cannot live without.”

Are you clear that you want 2018 to be the year that you really get clear on your WHY and your WHAT?
To DROP the stories and excuses that have been holding you back. To literally press pause and STOP and really take time for you, to allow yourself to dream BIG and choose, this year, to STEP UP and IN?
If you are receiving a resounding YES, then please read on . . . .
This ‘retreat has been designed to help you with ALL of this and to create your New Vision for 2018.
This Fri to Sun retreat is designed to Awaken YOU into 2018, to empower you to take life back so you OWN it . . instead of life owning you.



“Kodama retreat is a heavenly, tranquil space, tucked away in a patch of paradise, where you are welcomed and nurtured. My double room ‘The View’ was amazing, just what a person needs, and watching the night sky after a day of meditation is amazing with the blinds open. I needed to find myself and this retreat has helped me find the journey and the pathway. After this retreat experience I will change a lot of routines and my train of thought – no more avoidance! I am taking ‘calm’ with me and I feel I know more about me and now have clarity.”

“Being at Kodama felt like being in your friend’s home – your very special generous friends! The ‘Awakening into 2017’ retreat was a very safe place to check in and continue healing. I loved the gorgeous facilitators of the retreat, the amazing location and the stunning food. Also the powerful vibration of the sound healing and the workshop to create vision boards and understand the power of manifestation were my most memorable moments. The most important things I will take away from this retreat experience is the power of open hearts and a trusting safe environment, as well as the importance of morning ritual and infiltrating joy and laughter in my life.“

About Louise Walker – Footsteps Yoga and Meditation teacher, Intuitive coach, Reiki healer, Event dream weaver


I am passionate about creating unforgettable retreat experiences that will touch you deeply, hold you and heal you and transform your life – if you are ready to let them.

I’ve been lucky to have had so many fantastic teachers on my journey, really seeing the phrase come to life: ‘When the Student is ready, the Teacher will appear’. Perhaps this is you right now? I’ve been so inspired by so many of my teachers Mark Breadner (Yoga Coach), Jasmine Natasha Tarkeshi (Laughing Lotus Yoga, San Francisco), Esther-Maria Linder (Kindled Spirit), Joseph Scott and Jay Hedley (The Coaching Room) plus many more, and I know humbly that I will always be the student, as long as I am a teacher of others.

I am committed to creating a safe, healing, fun and empowering space within my coaching sessions and during my yoga and meditation classes. The work we do together  will encourage you to relax, learn, heal and grow spiritually. I am trained as a Meta NLP transformational coach and I teach a nurturing style of hatha vinyasa yoga, an enlivening chakra flow as well as gentle yin yoga.  I use plenty of hands on assists, beautiful music, scents and profound texts to create a memorable sensory experience for you. I also LOVE 
to weave my reiki and meta NLP coaching skills into my yoga classes – I have been told by some my classes are “better than therapy”.

My background is that I used to work full time in the Events and Marketing world employed by
 companies such as Google, before hearing my calling to step out of the 9 to 5. I felt a deep inner yearning to create more meaning in my life, and to devote my life to work with people like yourself, to help you find and connect to, your higher purpose. Equipped from my corporate years with marketing and event skills, and having spent years dreaming up experiential campaigns for big brands around the world, I realised I could transfer these skills easefully and joyfully into my spiritual work
and weave this magic into creating memorable retreat experiences that would change lives – now THIS gets me really excited!

I can’t wait to meet you, welcome you, get to know you, sink onto the mat with you, serve you, look after you, connect with you, grow with you and learn with you on this retreat journey. I firmly believe we are all always learning and every person who crosses your path can teach you something.
