rox madeira yoga herbs wild food massage

Hi, I'm Rox.  I am based in Scotland in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.  I look forward to welcoming you on a walk, a workshop, a yoga class, a retreat or to stay in our Sage's Cabin.  

I am a yoga/movement teacher, wild food & medicine foraging guide, nutritional therapist, and medical herbal student specialising in women's health.  

I combine each of these modalities to create retreats, workshops, and classes with the aim to reconnect to our intuition, to herbs, to the season, to our bodies, our folk practices and the land around us.  It is time to reclaim the medicine of our land, and the embodied medicine within.


I also support refugees and asylum seekers as a volunteer with Herbalists without Borders Calais.  I am one of the organisers of the Scottish Wild Food Festival, a member of the Association of Foragers, The Herb Society, Herbalists without Borders international, The Forth Valley Food & Drink Network, The Non-Timber Forest Product Network, and a director at the Hub G63 (a sustainable food & community social enterprise).

Projects and associations I am involved with:
