Yoga, Fitness & Vitamin Sea: Our Retreat announces new 2019 summer escapes in Italy and Ibiza
The global wellness industry is now worth $4.2trillion, with activity-based and nature immersion retreats proving to be one of 2019’s hottest wellness travel trends, as people are increasingly looking for new ways to improve their mental and physical wellbeing and escape the pressures of everyday life. Catering to this, boutique retreat brand, Our Retreat, is delighted to announce new summer dates for their luxury, transformational retreats, running from June to October this year. Hosted by world-class fitness experts, guests can expect a menu of yoga, Pilates, meditation, wellness workshops and oceanside fitness, perfectly complemented by freshly cooked, nutritional meals.
Founded by Lisa Carolan, Our Retreat offers 6-night long summer getaways in the tranquil, soul-healing surroundings of Sardinia and Ibiza, where everything is taken care of from the moment guests arrive. Solo travellers, adventures and wellness seekers alike are invited to stay in sumptuous villas each with a private pool, where they can not only meet new, like-minded people, but also take home the knowledge and skills to live a healthy lifestyle long after returning home. Unlike standard retreat brands, Our Retreat doesn’t promote gruelling hours of exercise and limit calorie intake, but instead prides itself on balance and ensuring all guests are taken on a personal journey of rest and rejuvenation.
Professional trainers and influencers are on hand to guide guests through every step of their journey, including Cat Meffan and Richie Norton. Retreaters can find their zen with morning yoga, Pilates or HIIT training in the spacious villas or at a nearby beach, before discovering the beauty of the Sardinian or Ibizan coast on a guided hike. As nature immersion is proven to reduce stress and depression levels*, guests can then challenge themselves to a beachside workout, SUP paddle boarding and kayaking, before enjoying a swim in the Mediterranean Sea and even relaxing on board Our Retreat’s private yacht whilst in Sardinia. As the sun sets on the day, guests can gather together for a variety of exciting evening activities, from expert nutritional talks and sunset meditation sessions, to live music nights and open-air cinema screenings.
With balance at the heart of the offering, healthy yet indulgent meals are freshly prepared by private chefs, and guests are offered vibrant, nourishing meals to fuel them during their stay as well as homemade juices, protein snacks and plant-based options. The Sardinian retreats even operate on zero-food waste policy, with the use of biodegradable packaging, locally sourced ingredients and innovative menus, where leftovers from dinner can be transformed into a flavoursome lunch.
Leading the way in laid-back luxury retreats, Our Retreat is the perfect summer escape for a full mind, body and soul revival this year.
Prices for Our Retreat Sardinia and Ibiza retreats start from £1,450 on an all-inclusive basis, including all meals, accommodation, fitness classes, activities and airport transfers. For further information, dates and rates, visit ourretreat.co.uk
