Wellness

Each day is purposefully busy, to encourage the detox process by keeping you moving and distract you so your mind does not wonder to unwanted food thought cravings! You will enjoy 2 yoga classes a day, spectacular walks, light fitness classes to enhance your physical health. In-house qualified nutritional therapists will be conducting the nutrition and wellness talks during the week, ranging from sleep to stress and hormones to detoxification. Sleep is key, and the day ends around 9.30pm to encourage long recovery periods. You will wake reasonably early to catch the sunrise either on a guided walk or morning yoga session.

And of course there is plenty of time for rest and relaxation by the pool or to indulge in a massage. Massages are not included in the programme. Massage cost €60 and is payable in Euros and in cash on site. We recommend pre-booking your requested times and dates for massage to guarantee availability. 

No previous experience of yoga or fitness required. You should aim to attend all the classes if you want to get the most value out of your week, but if your plan to simply come and lie on your sun lounger all day that’s fine too. 

Facilities include outdoor infinity swimming pool, yoga and fitness shala with sliding window doors overlooking the mountains, large roof terrace for yoga, fitness and star gazing, massage room, quiet meditation snug and library.
