Did I mention there is a pool?
Also please bear in mind that if you want to arrive a few days early or leave a few days later we may be able to arrange accomodation for you at the villa during this time.
The rooms each have a queen bed and most have private bathrooms. If rooms are booked with more than one person per room, then obviously we can do a lower rate per person in that room.
Every morning, as the host (Jasmyn) prepares your vegan/vegetarian lunch, she will be giving instruction on how to prepare these "plant-based" meals in your kitchen at home as part of the included Look Alive™ Plant-Based Nutrition workshops.
These workshops will have recipes, and detailed explanations about why eating a plant-based is beneficial to brain-function and chemistry, physical performance, treatment of psychological disturbances and disorders, as well as a know-how to have your kitchen prepped and ready for easy to make and quick recipes.
Yoga classes are all multi-level and while the morning classes can be vigorous exercise, the evening classes are relaxing and recouperative. The morning Vinyassa Yoga classes are more dynamic for beginners to advanced practitioners, and are immediately followed by a meditation class to settle the minds before the day's activities. And of course there is no obligation to attend classes, so whether you just fancy a lie in or want to go off one afternoon for a wander, that's totally up to you.
Activities include additional excursions on the island, lounging by the on-property pool, or venturing to any of the island's other many delights.
Yoga-Nidra sessions are given at sunset following a gentle Yin-Yoga Flow class incorporating techniques of thai-massage, to restore you and prepare you for the next day's Vinyassa Yoga sessions or for going out that night!
Dinners are not included to give attendees freedom to roam in the evenings (unless you request to have a special dinner prepared instead of lunch).
Sort Your Brain Out Retreats are five days of true luxury living. Treating the body and brain to wholesome, delicious food, body balancing exercise and gentle meditations, all in the privacy of the Maera Villas, with the endless view of the Mediterranean from each of the properties.
Bespoke Corporate Group Packages for 5 or more people can be arranged.
