About the food: Our meals are lovingly prepared using fresh organic ingredients mainly sourced from the local area. The menu is abundant, delicious and healthy. This is not a fast so you won't go hungry, however we cut out meat, dairy foods, sugar and alcohol so your body will be lightly cleansing. Each morning after yoga we sip a fresh healthy juice before our lovely buffet breakfast. Lunch is another delicious meal and dinner often starts with a nutritious soup. Herbal teas and fruits are available throughout the retreat as well as purified drinking water. By the retreats end you'll be feeling energised, clear and nourished and you'll have lots of recipes and ideas for continuing your healthy eating at home.
Check-in and check-out: arrival time on the first day is from 10 am onwards with a healthy buffet lunch available between 12 pm and 3 pm. The first yoga class and formal group welcome is at 5 pm - allowing you time to arrive, get settled into your room, eat well and perhaps have a massage or a swim before yoga. Due to flights people arrive at all different times in the day but aim to be there as early as possible so you have time to relax before yoga. The retreat ends 11 am on the last day with check-out around midday, however if you need to checkout later due to flights that can be arranged. Check in time for an extra night before the retreat is after 12 noon (time must be confirmed first). Check out for extra night after the retreat is 12 noon.
