Sust! Health are excited to welcome back yogini Yasmina Cherquaoui to catapult your yoga practice to new levels with this highly invigorating and deeply nourishing 3-night ‘Summer Glow Up Retreat’ in North Devon.
This revitalising, yoga-inspired weekend break includes a balanced mix of energising yoga flow classes and gentle restorative yoga classes. Fitness classes such as mini-band training and pilates-inspired core training will leave you feeling strong and supple. Cold water immersion in secret swim spots along the North Devon Coast will take your breath away… in the best possible way 😉
Fuelling these activities will be delicious and nutritious smoothies, light meals, juices, soups and salads, providing your body with optimal nutrients and amino acids to encourage healthy and sustainable weight loss. This programme is specifically designed to nourish the gut with the addition of collagen-rich foods to protect the gut lining and fermented foods to provide beneficial bacteria to the microbiome.
The summer is a beautiful time to visit North Devon and enjoy the specular hiking trails within Exmoor National Park. We have some INCREDIBLE guided hikes in store for you that take in the best of the South West Coast Path and National Trust hiking trails. Hikes will typically be 3-4 hours long and between 4-9 miles depending on the option you choose.
This retreat will take place at Woodlands Guesthouse from Friday 25th August to Monday 28th August. Woodlands is an imposing Victorian guesthouse overlooking the West Lyn Valley situated a short stroll away from the village of Lynton. Each room has an ensuite bathroom and provides a perfect, peaceful haven to retreat and relax.
