Rohini has made it her life’s work to explore and understand the human mind and how to unlock human potential.  


This was a passion cultivated through her 25 years in senior corporate leadership roles, working for the likes of Microsoft, John Lewis, DHL, BP, the NHS and leading FTSE 100 type organisations as a senior management consultant defining and delivering transformation. 


Rohini also embarked on her own transformation journey which led her to learn from the world’s leading experts in psychology, yogic philosophy and mindfulness. This included undertaking her yoga and meditation teacher training with the traditional Sivananda organisation, training with the Breathing Space school of breathwork, and further developing her transformation and coaching skills with Tony Robbins and the Life Mastery University.


Having practiced yoga and meditation techniques for 30 years, Rohini is a proud, self-confessed wellbeing and growth freak and what she likes to call ‘sickening optimist’. Her wish is for a sustainable world; one where we are in harmony with ourselves, each other and our gorgeous abundant planet.



Karl’s past corporate life saw him working for a top investment bank, before embarking on his entrepreneurial journey which led him to build a multi-million pound property portfolio and several wellness and design-focused businesses.


In keeping with his Swedish roots, Karl has always been drawn to the beauty and healing benefits of light and nature and has used this as a driving force for his many entrepreneurial pursuits and creative businesses. Notably, Karl is a pioneer in multi-sensory sunlight therapy and has transformed lots of spaces into sun-kissed havens of deep relaxation. He’s also not one to shy away from the revitalising benefits of cold showers and ice baths and practices breathing techniques daily such as the Wim Hof method.


Karl has practiced yoga for 15 years, trained as a breathwork facilitator and is a graduate of the Tony Robbins Life Mastery University.



Ian is our main man when it comes to the beautifully prepared food you’ll devour during your time at the retreat. He knows a thing or two about sourcing quality ingredients and how to turn them into nourishing, delicious meals that will best serve your body and mind.


He is behind the popular vegan cafe’ The Mortar & Pestle and we are so lucky to have him lovingly prepare everything from scratch for us at the retreat.

WHY Y42?

Because we’re obsessed with the deeper ‘why’! Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy fans will know that the story’s hero embarks on an epic adventure to find the answer to the “ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything”, which after aeons of calculations, was given simply as “42”.

Drawing inspiration from this crazy, creative, intergalactic existential story (yep, did we mention we’re SCI-FI nerds?), we know that even the simplest of answers can be those hardest to find. And so, Y42 the name behind the ‘Ultimate’ retreat for mind, body and spirit was born! We have a few copies to read at the retreat, for those who fancy!
