Daily Practices


We have designed your retreat to start and end the day with simple but effective movement and mindfulness practices. With the intention of helping to form healthy habits that will be easy to fit into your everyday life going forward. We would love you to join us on the rooftop terrace each morning to greet the sun with for stretching, breath-work and meditation or you are welcome to practice alone in your room.  Each evening  we will wind down the day with calming, relaxing and restorative exercises. 

These daily habits are the building blocks of your retreat experience and can help with sleep problems, weight loss , improve attention levels, decrease stress levels , ease anxiety , manage pain, prevent depression relapse and even increase grey matter. On top of this they can help with emotional resilience and most importantly engender empathy and compassion for ourselves and others.  


Cooking classes.

On day one we invite you to join us in the kitchen and get hands on exploring healthy and interesting recipes, from Ayurvedic traditions to modern plant based cuisine. You will get to see how the dishes are made and we will give you the recipes to take home.
