Retreat Description

Mark the mid-point of the year, the passing of the solstice and escape the winter blues with this special mid year retreat. The 8 day program is designed specifically to boost your immune system and to enhance wellness and vitality. You will be encouraged to set clear intentions for the second half of 2015 and supported in choosing the path to your highest self through a unique combination of yoga, meditation, pranayama and spa treatments plus teachings on nutrition, wellness and Ayurveda. This retreat also features a specially designed menu of seasonal food and juices to boost your immune system and kick start your healthy habits. Much of the produce is grown in the retreat centre’s organic garden so the food simply bursts with freshness and goodness.
