Fun For the whole family
Learn about the huge benefits of a holistic, healthy lifestyle on this retreat especially for parents and children (aged 12 and upwards). The programme will focus on the four cornerstones for a more connected and healthier lifestyle (MEDS). We believe that you are never too young (or old) to start learning about wellbeing and health making this retreat the perfect opportunity to start learning together.
The Four Cornerstones:
Meditation. It has been scientifically proven daily meditation can help us to cope with the stresses of everyday 21st century living. Meditation is also capable of reducing blood pressure, symptoms of anxiety, depression and insomnia. This is why we make time to not only meditate during our retreats, but also teach you good practice and skills to take away with you.
Exercise. During the retreat there will be daily hikes around the beautiful North Devon coast and countryside. Perfect for breathing in fresh ocean air and escaping from technology for a few hours. All while also working your muscles, getting active and having fun.
Diet. Diet is absolutely key for good health and the building block everything else grows from. We will have talks from Hazel, our expert Nutritionist, in addition to cooking lessons and discussions around the best way for you to eat for YOUR body. The programme is also a chance for you to start the detox process from food groups that may be harmful to your health.
Sleep. Finally, there will also be discussions around sleep, why it’s so important for your body. The quality of your sleep, its effects and how important good sleep is to your bodies healing and growth patterns.
As well as the four cornerstones of a more connected healthier lifestyle there will be a session on Digital safety. A growing part of 21st century living, the digital world can have a huge impact on our lives. How we interact with it decides whether this impact is good or bad. During the retreat will will have an internet safety expert coming to talk to the group about safety online. This is an area that, if done right, not only protects our children but can help them flourish.
The five-day ‘Fit, Family Fun’ programme is designed to be both educational and inspirational for all the family, offering you new tools to support you in your busy lifestyles together.
We also offer a 10% discount per person for those wishing to share a room as partners, friends, siblings or parent and child.
