Arabella Hampshire teaches a strong, modern and dynamic Pilates class that you will no doubt feel the next day! Arabella is a huge advocate for mindful movement and her classes have a large breath component to help centre you and make sure you are really embodying the movement. It’s not uncommon for a class to finish with a little guided meditation or pranayama, which is always a plus!
Louise Loader, Nutritionist & Herbalist, teaches you how to optimise your wellbeing using the seven pillars of health. From nutrition, to sleep and stress management – the pillars provide the framework for self-care. Understanding how these are pivotal to your health paves the road for unlocking your energy, finding mental clarity and optimising longevity.
Fermentation workshop – Louise teaches you how to use food as medicine in an informative and interactive fermentation workshop. Learn about the microbiome and the health benefits of fermented vegetables while getting hands-on making your own jar of sauerkraut to take home.
Lunch – catering/cooking demonstration with Louise Loader:
Louise believes that the road to good health begins in the kitchen, with seasonal wholefoods that nourish the body with every mouthful. A lover of cooking, she draws on world travel and the traditional diets of our ancestors to prepare food that is as delicious as it is nourishing. Louise will prepare and demonstrate a nutrient-dense meal for your group while discussing the health benefits of the dish. Passionate about food quality, Louise sources sustainably grown, organic ingredients from local farmers and ethical, pasture-fed animal products.
Dinner – catering by Arabella Hampshire:
Whole-foods without compromising taste is what Arabella’s cooking is all about! Arabella’s use of vibrant colours, beautiful textures and perfectly paired flavours means that you won’t even know that what you are eating is always gluten, dairy, refined sugar free and as nourishing as can be. Arabella believes that the way we fuel our bodies can have a huge impact on our life so why not fuel yourself with nourishing wholefoods prepared with love?
Enjoy a one hour treatment of your choice… massage, facial or acupuncture:
Choose an Aromatherapy Massage with Renee Vanhoff from Soul Revival Spa, where you determine the aroma and pressure or a beautiful Organic Spa Skincare Facial of your choice from our treatment menu that will rejuvenate and send you deep into relaxation. Using only Cruelty free products, our facials are designed for every skin type and concern.
Acupuncture with Nicole Vardanega, Chinese Medicine Practitioner: Chinese Medicine believes, balance is the ultimate goal to a healthy life. Everyday we are faced with hurdles that challenge us to remain balanced and focused. Acupuncture has an amazing ability to help restore our innate harmonious flow as well as ground you.
