Join Alison and Ellen for an inspiring week at Quinta do Areal in the autumn. The retreat week will offer a full daily programme with yoga and meditation practice in the morning and evening as well as holistic lifestyle workshops and outdoor activities.
We will boost our vitality by eating delicious and inspiring plant-based food prepared by our vegan chef and getting outside to breathe the clean mountain air while hiking, mountain biking and exploring the beautiful hills surrounding the farm.
We will spend the week consciously thinking about the ways we can nourish ourselves on a physical, mental and emotional level and get inspired by the coaching workshops about how to live a more holistic lifestyle.
A holistic lifestyle is one where we practice real self care and take time to nourish ourselves in all aspects of our lives.
A holistic approach to wellness includes all aspects of health, from the foods we eat to developing our mental clarity, from taking more rest to keeping our bodies active. A healthy lifestyle also includes making time to foster loving relationships with ourselves and others as well as time for the things that make us feel alive.
Real vitality is being able to meet whatever life brings us with excitement and energy.
There will also be lots of other activities during the week to do around the farm and surrounding countryside, such as hiking in the hills, a vegan cooking workshop, mountain biking, hanging out with the farm animals, fruit picking and helping on the farm as well as time to relax at the luxurious common areas in and around the house and pool.
Our shiatsu therapist, Joel will also be available for 90 minute full body treatments during the week.
