Get the Glow! Yoga & Detox Retreats

2017: June 4-9 & June 18-23 – sorry both retreats now full.

(see all our retreats here)

Our ‘Get the Glow’ Yoga & Detox retreats are the perfect opportunity to slow down, to rest and give a great big boost to your health & well-being in the sunshine.  

In the Summer our body’s natural cleansing mechanism is at it’s strongest.  As the days become longer, brighter & warmer we crave lighter, ‘cleaner’ foods.  Craving lighter, easily digested food, is our body’s way of ridding itself of all remaining traces of Winter & Spring stagnation so that it’s ready to tap into the vibrancy of Summer.

A detox programme at this time of year ties in beautifully with this natural rhythm of the body.

Cleansing the body can result in a wide range of positive effects such as; increased energy, a clearer mind, the releasing of negative mental & emotional patterns, weight loss, a stronger immune system and improved sleep to name just a few.

Join us for a Summer detox and whilst we support the body’s natural cleansing process with delicious cleansing meals, we’ll spoil you with daily yoga, Pilates, nature hikes, wellness talks, time to relax, detox treatments & therapies and optional fun-but-good-for-you activities.

A detox retreat that’s all about your body & your health. 

Retreat Location

This retreat takes place near the coastal town of Javea – 75minutes north of Alicante – at a peaceful private villa surrounded by open countryside bursting with groves of orange, olive and ancient carob trees.   Check out the view from the roof terrace below …

Yoga Detox Views

The villa is super spacious and an oasis of calm & tranquility however, civilisation is not far away as we’re an easy 25 minutes walk to Javea’s ‘old town’ – the original & historic heart of this coastal resort.   Built in a traditional Spanish style, the villa has 12 en-suite double or twin rooms, a comfortable library/lounge, a pool in the 3000sqm Mediterranean garden plus, lots of cosy areas inside & out where you can relax & enjoy the serenity of this location in private .. it’s just us at the villa.

The perfect location for you to regain your Glow away from the manic pace of life.

Our Detox

Like it or not, toxins are everywhere — in the food we eat, the air we breathe and the products we use on our skin and in our homes. Whilst our organs of elimination – the kidneys, liver, lungs, intestines & skin – can rid the body of toxins, they are easily overloaded and this can trigger a host of ailments & illnesses that include; fatigue, weight gain, tiredness, listlessness, sinus & skin problems, bad breath, mental lethargy, sleep issues, joint pain and puffy eyes.

Our finely tuned detox stimulates cellular cleansing, deflates puffiness, redefines your waist, tightens the skin and lifts your confidence. 

If you have ever tried to detox at home you’ll know how hard it is!   Trying to keep to a detox whilst working, looking after the family & living ‘normally’ is extremely difficult and a common reason for failing to complete the detox.

Our yoga detox retreats help cleanse your body & mind via :

  • Full board detox meals.  3 ridiculously healthy cleansing meals a day that are super fresh & bursting with nutrients that your body will find easy to digest.  You’ll feast on ingredients renowned for their cleansing & healing properties which, not only are vital for peak health, but will support the elimination of waste from your body.
  • Detoxifying therapies that stimulate the breakdown and removal of toxins from your organs & cells
  • Daily gentle exercise to get your blood and lymphatic systems flowing … movement is essential to take toxins to the organs of elimination
  • Wellness talks with our team to clear the mind & body of negative stored thoughts & experiences that have a ‘toxic’ effect on health …. & future
  • Daily body brushing to slough away old skin and open your pores making it easier for your skin (the largest detox organ) to release toxins
  • Relaxation time to calm the nervous system & allow your body to direct it’s energy towards detoxification
  • Time to reconnect with and listen to your body
  • Stress reducing meditations .. a staggering 77% of adults say they frequently feel stressed
  • Unlimited mineral water & herbal infusions
  • Deep & restful sleep

A good detox changes you physically and emotionally and is a hugely important part of this retreat.  You’ll experience a deep inner cleanse leaving you feeling alive & energised, glowing skin, brighter eyes, shiny hair, sharper mental abilities and the added bonus of loosing a few pounds too.

Programme Overview

We’ve created a detox programme that offers a balance of activity and relaxation time. Everything is completely optional as its important to us that you do what your heart desires.  So, if there’s a morning you want to sleep in, please sleep in. If there’s an afternoon where you want to stay by the pool & skip class, no problem!

Each day begins nice & quietly with dry body brushing to stimulate blood flow and help clean your biggest detox organ – the skin.  Then join us in the garden for a cup of detox tea and fresh fruits before opening & enlivening your body with yoga or Pilates before heading to the kitchen for a delicious cleansing breakfast full of flavour and ingredients that stimulate a natural, gentle cleanse of your organs & cells.

Following breakfast time now for some gentle exercise – see below – before a colourful cleansing lunch at the villa prepared by your own private health Chef.

As rest is a very important part of a cleansing detox programme, afternoons are free to relax by the pool, swim, sleep, snooze, chat, read, book therapies or take a walk into town.  On some afternoons there’ll be wellness workshops or a guided meditation.   Late afternoon is time for another yoga or Pilates session prior to dinner, wellness chats & finally, deep restful sleep.
