MOVE - Daily Yoga, Fitness classes and an opportunity to explore the local area

Yoga classes on the retreat will be a mix of dynamic flow to energise us and build that inner fire along with some lovely relaxation techniques and restorative yoga in the evenings so you can almost float into your beds. 

Fitness classes are designed to suit all levels of fitness with the ability to tailor each movement, to each individual. A variety of exercises will be undertaken incorporating body weight and resistance training, resulting in a full body workout. 

You will also have the opportunity to try classes combining strength training and yoga. A blend of strength, fitness and flexibility found in the two disciplines make them the perfect union.

There will be opportunities to explore the beautiful surrounding countryside and beaches on the Isle of Wight. Bring your walking boots and wellies!

Activities may include foraging adventures, water sports, horse riding, guided walks or runs, outdoor fitness sessions and the opportunity to bring out the adventurer in you.

NOURISH - healthy and nutritious food and cookery workshops

We believe in the importance of nourishing our bodies with healthy and whole foods – preparing our bodies for exercise and supporting recovery and repair post-exercise! Jenny and Evelyn both love to experiment in the kitchen and count brunch as their favourite meal of the day. They are both very excited to share their most popular recipes over the weekend (including smoothie bowls, banana bread, energy balls, overnight oats, avocado toast and pancakes…).

Over the weekend, guests will be treated to balanced and nutritious food, showcasing seasonal Isle of Wight produce cooked by top Isle of Wight chefs.

Good food should be shared, and therefore meal times will provide guests the opportunity to get to know one another and dine in a relaxed environment. The foodie workshop will provide guests with the opportunity to learn how to make some of Jenny and Evelyn’s alternative healthy goodies – providing delicious snacks for the chilled film night
