Highlights

The power of food, movement, active relaxation, nature, connection & creativity will be at the heart of the retreat. The aim is to release stress, restore energy, bring back balance and create calm. Therefore all activities on-retreat are optional, allowing you to tune into your body and do what feels right.


During the retreat you’ll take part in activities such as yoga, breathwork and meditation, with all classes held in the beachfront yoga shala. Other activities include swimming, kayaking, wellbeing workshops and a group excursion in addition to plenty of downtime, whether that’s having a natter, reading a book or taking a dip in the infinity pool.


Retreat is led by Lafina Diamandis, a renowned holistic health doctor and wellbeing coach, and Kaitlin Colucci, UK's leading gut health expert and yoga teacher. Both ladies have an abundance of experience in their field and they know a thing or two about health and wellbeing, which they will share with you during the retreat. 


As a client of Wellbeing Escapes, we will give you a complimentary 60 minute 1:1 Holistic Health & Wellbeing Consultation & Strategy Session worth £250 (online or in person) with Dr Lafina Diamandis. Use this session to address areas of concern, evaluate your health, wellbeing and lifestyle factors, discuss how to optimise health and prevent disease and create a bespoke plan to optimise your health and wellbeing.
