Run Like The Wolf

Image Description

 After a decade in London and six years working in New York, Gemma said goodbye to TV and Film producing and moved back to Sussex to start a family and launch her Wellness Business, Run Like The Wolf in Brighton. “I was inspired to start Run Like The Wolf after living in Williamsburg, which has a vibrant wellness community; the scene had so much colour and energy—everyone was so welcoming with an incredibly diverse set of skills. No linen trousers, hushed voices or spenny yoga mats—just people connecting and sharing their journeys—teaching, healing and really being authentic in their skin, which I hadn’t really experienced before. Going to a Drum Circle, a Tarot Taster, a Creative Painting Workshop or a Breathwork Session after work was a fun alternative to the (amazing) NYC bar scene. Wellness for me became socialising plus self-care, and with the bonus of no hangover the next day! I remember having a real life-changing moment at my first Sound Bath – laying on the floor with 20 complete strangers while three gurus played instruments above our heads: rain-making maracas, tuning forks and flapping eagle wings immersed us in a cacophony of sound and sensation.” Run Like The Wolf celebrates its first birthday this April 2023 and has had a successful first year hosting (mainly women’s) wellness events. They’ve sold out all their Creative Wellbeing sessions, Day Retreats and Workshops and explored and challenged themes like Purpose, The Meaning of Self-Care, Identity and Expression. Gemma is still a producer at heart and loves curating the events, bringing together Brighton’s best Teachers, Practitioners, Healers, Guides and Coaches to create a fun and welcoming space. “My idea was really just to bring a dollop of fun and spark to the Wellness world; to create a space for women to connect and to heal together. There is always a real mix of laughter AND tears at our events as we open ourselves up to experiencing different things in a group.” Run Like The Wolf’s events so far have hosted a mix of established Wellness and Mindfulness practices like Yoga, Sound Immersion, Meditation plus some more non- traditional disciplines like Stripped-Back Boxing, Self Discovery, Howling + Chanting, Inner Child Art Classes and Self Massage. The next event will be in March at Projects, The Lanes, Nile Street. A Collaboration with The Paint Club. More details coming soon. 

Gemma also has also recently launched a Reiki and Massage Clinic in Hove called “Wolf Therapies”. Check out more details on and quote “Discover Brighton” for 25% off your first treatment.
