Did you want to start intermittent fasting but found it too unencouraging to do it on your own? Join us and a group of like-minded people to start this or reinforce the practice over the weekend in a beautiful setting in Kent, July 17-19th, 2022.
This 2-day and 2-night retreat is perfect for a person that wants to recharge, detox physically and mentally, and reset their bodies for healthier habits and lighter physique in time for the summer.
We will support you throughout the stay and we have developed a program that will help you keep your mind off food. It is designed to be a pleasurable experience, in beautiful nature surroundings and with the spirit of like-minded group.
The program will include yoga classes, breathworks, visualisation and meditation, walking in nature. We will also hold discussions on topics including nutrition, longevity, gut health, sleep and mental health – something we all need to improve our overall wellbeing.
We will share an eating plan to prepare for fasting a week before the retreat and we will break the fast altogether with a light meal on the last day, before going home.

Can I practice yoga and exercise during fasting?
Yes, fasting and exercise aren’t only OK; they are optimal for boosting your health and body composition. The key to weight loss and muscle gain is not just calories and exercise but hormone optimisation. Studies confirm the benefits of intermittent fasting alone, but combining fasting with movement takes the benefits of each to a whole new level. Combining the two raises growth hormone and makes you more insulin sensitive, which is the key to staying lean and delaying the ageing process.
Many people wrongly fear muscle loss when exercising fasting, but fasting can assist in maintaining or even building muscle because it increases the human growth hormone (HGH), one of your body’s most important hormones related to building muscle tissue. Super low HGH levels in adults mean less lean muscle mass and more body fat. HGH production is highest during your teenage years, and output wanes as your age. Even your bone density can suffer without it.
