in:spa retreats’ is not a boot camp.

The fitness element of the program includes guided hikes through stunning, diverse scenery, and personal fitness sessions. The trainers also offer challenging and invigorating group circuit training, boxercise, barre classes, cardiovascular, and resistance training as well as jogging / running sessions which are a great way to take in the local surroundings.

All the teachers teach the importance of correct postural alignment and incorporate breath work and meditation in their classes. All fitness and yoga classes are optional.

After all, it is a holiday and in:spa retreats wants you to return home feeling refreshed, relaxed, and full of energy. This is why in:spa retreats incorporate a deep tissue massage into the program for each of the guests. The intuitive, skilled therapists soothe tired muscles and facilitate deep relaxation.

During your retreat, there will always be plenty of time to relax by the pool in the sunshine, have an afternoon snooze, or take a quiet walk around the gardens and grounds. So, in addition to optimizing your physical well-being, a key aim of the holiday is to allow time for personal reflection, relaxation, and the opportunity to learn more about the positive effects that a more balanced lifestyle can have on your health. The expert teams are on hand throughout the day and evening.
