The Yoga & Pilates Sessions
The daily yoga sessions combine the deep stretches of Hatha yoga with the warming flow of Vinyasa together with deeply relaxing Yin Yoga. Your mobility & flexibility will dramatically improve with daily yoga and you’ll experience a deep sense of inner calm.
Pilates sessions are mat based and focus on strengthening & toning major muscle groups using proficient Pilates movements. During your stay there’ll also be a ‘Love your Mind’ meditation workshop where you’ll sample various mind calming, stress relieving techniques.read more...
Our Yoga & Pilates sessions are suitable for keen beginners right up to the super experienced. Our teaching style is precise but relaxed so expect to hear plenty of alignment cues to keep you safe. There’s no pressure to create the perfect looking posture, what’s important is that you pay attention to how the posture ‘feels’ in your body. Likewise there’s no room for ego as it’s not what we’re about.
Meet our Yoga & Pilates teachers
It doesn’t matter what other people are doing around you, just work with what you have. Be patient, keep practicing and your body will open up & let you back in.
We believe fitness should be effective but fun and so, together with Yoga & Pilates we have created a programme that offers the optimum balance of strength building, muscle toning and cardio health.
Included in your stay are 3 activities a day. A mix of Yoga, Pilates, hiking in the mountains with awesome views, high intensity training for cardio health, strength building sessions using a mix of free weights, TRX & body weight, a BoxFit or water based HydroFit class plus a ‘Love your Mind’ Meditation workshop.
Everything is optional and you don’t have to be super fit to join these retreats!
It’s no problem if you’d like to skip a class or two and laze by the pool, enjoy therapies or relax in your suite. This retreat is all about You.
Work at your own pace.
Our instructors are here to inspire you to find your boundaries – not push you beyond them. You’ll be encouraged to work at a level and pace that suits your strength & stamina.
"You have made me feel re-energised, positive & thankful. I have enjoyed every aspect of this holiday & feel the balance of activities vs. relaxation time was spot on." Ruth
Our fabulous health Chef Miguel will be nourishing your body with super healthy plant based dishes and the occasional fish dish for those that would like it.
As you could be pretty active on this retreat (yoga, pilates, hiking, fitness training, swimming etc) we make sure you have the right balance of nutrients to give you the energy to do all the things you love.
We don’t count calories .. but we don’t add them unnecessarily either and we believe there’s nothing wrong with enjoying a healthy dessert too (yay!)read more...
Breakfasts are buffet style where you help yourself to as much as you like of wholesome cereals, seasonal fruits & yogurts, hot eggs & baked tomatoes, avocados, protein packed smoothies, goats cheese, smoked salmon, assorted breads (including a delicious gluten free loaf), herbal infusions & teas. Non dairy milk & yogurts are always available.
Lunchtime we go for something light & fresh like a crunchy vibrant salad with a side order of protein, a healthy grain dish such as buckwheat tabbouleh or a Mediteranean meze. Each day is colourful & appetising.
We take supper ‘at home’ each evening except one night when we’ll head out to the very pretty old town of Altea nearby where there’ll be time to browse the boutiques for gifts to take home before supper at a restaurant in the town.
The Complete Retreat Programme Overview
2019 : May 9-14 & June 20-25
Days begin peacefully as you wake slowly with a cup of herbal tea & fresh fruit before opening your body with Yoga or Pilates.
Feeling awake & vibrant, time now for a super healthy buffet breakfast after which there’s time to relax a little before we set off into the great outdoors for one of our fitness activities.
All activities are included in your holiday. In addition to daily yoga or Pilates, there’s a guided hike to one of our favourite spots with awesome views, fitness training sessions to build strength & stamina, a Hydro Fit water based toning class, plenty of time for swimming or to head to the gym for an extra workout.
We know solo time is important too & so each afternoon is free for you to relax, chat, read, meditate, enjoy therapies in the Spa or have a guilt free snooze.
Late afternoon we gather again for Yoga or Pilates before supper.
All activities are optional. Create your own programme – do as much or as little as you like.
This is Your holiday, there are no rules. We’re here if you want us but we completely understand if you need time on your own too.
