THIS IS OUR MOST COMPREHENSIVE HEALTH PROGRAMME YET, A COMPLETE BODY RESET, FROM THE INSIDE AND OUT.

This retreat resets : 

  • The Body (Hiking, Running / Jogging, HIIT Training, Body Weight Training, Resistance Training, Yoga). 

During your retreat you’ll be doing a carefully selected series of physical exercises every day, stimulating fat loss & kickstarting metabolism. All these will help sculpt a toned & healthy body. We’ll be working through a couple of sessions per day activating different areas of the body and progressing towards getting you to a level where you feel confident you can carry on with regular exercise that you can do at home.

  • The Mind (Meditation, Relaxation, Coaching, Creative Exploration)

Our programme includes a series of daily guided meditations & breathing exercises to help refocus on what’s truly important, restore calm & tranquility. We’ll also have a couple of weekly life coaching sessions helping you to put together the missing pieces of the puzzle of prioritising goals and living a balanced lifestyle. Workshops on exploring our creative side, nutrition presentations, cooking & journaling will also be scheduled keeping the mind stimulated with new information.

  • The Gut (Weight Loss Diet)

The Gut is the key to our inner reset, learning & implementing a disciplined & informed approach to what types of foods, how much of it and what food does to our health. If you’re suffering from food sensitivities, following a hyperproteic  diet for a few weeks could be the most profound dietary change you’ll ever make. For some people, the results can feel nothing short of miraculous.

We follow 3 key principles:

  1. Not a trendy fad diet, no calorie counting – This program is for real people and is based on real, nourishing whole foods.

  2. Weight Loss Diet – this program incorporates the During the program, you will develop a deeper understanding of how food affects your energy, weight, mind, and overall health.

  3. Sustainable lifestyle  – since making changes can be intimidating, this program offers numerous tools for supporting you on the journey before, during and after the retreat.  It will also help you navigate the world of contradicting nutritional advice so you can develop a deeper understanding of what works best for your body.  The transformation doesn’t end at day 14, however… because the changes you make are practical for everyday life, the program is also a kickstart for long-lasting healthy habits.

As each person is different, we’ll start by analysing your body on Day 1 of the retreat and forming a macronutrient report that will be the basis of your personalised food plan during and after the retreat.

If you are vegan or vegetarian suitable balanced alternatives will always be provided during the retreat, for non vegans/vegetarians the elimination diet includes sustainably sourced organic lean meats that support gut healing.
