After check in, we’ll begin our retreat with an easy sunset walk followed by a relaxing dinner. The intention of the first day is to drop in and ease ourselves into the retreat experience.
Time to detox our minds with balance and meditation and break a sweat at a morning Bootcamp class. We’ll follow our sweat sessions with nutritious meals and of course free time to relax and explore before an evening of aqua Zumba. Reservations will be made at a local restaurant for dinner.
Free Day or Optional day trip to Santorini for anyone wishing to enjoy the dazzling landscapes in between our workouts.
The transformation continues as we shed the layers of our stressful lives and step in the strongest versions of ourselves with Balance and HIIT classes. In between meal times, we’ll offer free time to relax by the pool and explore the town on our night out.
After a chilled morning and energising breakfast, we’ll set out for a relaxing day in the sun at the beach and finish with a sunset yoga flow. We’ll close our last evening together with a deliciously nourishing meal.
The send off! We promise you’ll leave feeling rejuvenated and whole so you can return home with a nourished mind, body and spirit.
