THE STORY

A week of learning how to prevent disease and integrate holistic remedies in your daily life.

We will look at lifestyle, diet, exercise and what it means to have all elements symbiotically in balance. We will explore plant based seasonal, wholesome, healthy vegan cooking, principles of Integrative Nutrition, and clean eating so that all participants obtain the skills and knowledge they need to implement these at home. The presentations will be done by specialized doctors in Integrative & Functional Medicine. We’ll start each day with sunrise yoga session, breakfast & seminars that will guide you on how to form good habits and create a healthy balanced lifestyle for yourself and your family. Please note during this retreat we will serve a specialised gut healing menu with organic slow cooked meats, all local produce. Options for vegans and vegetarians available.

PRACTICE

A Typical Week on a Yoga Retreat

On our retreat we aim to provide you with the seed of yoga, which is not just the physical practice but also the yogic lifestyle philosophy, breathing techniques & meditation as an integrative practice. And whilst this just a seed carefully planted in your heart over your time spent here, we hope it can only grow and blossom to bare the fruits of mindfulness, health and peace in your daily life.  If by day 6 of your stay you leave with only a couple of these elements embedded in your being without even noticing, we’ve achieved our purpose.
