RETREAT

The Nixercise RETREAT – a breath of fresh air
Somerset, UK - 2-5 October 2017

Nixercise is hosting its first retreat this autumn.  Built around the premise of fun, fitness and wellbeing, The Nixercise Retreat: A Breath of Fresh Air is the chance to take some time out and focus on you. Enjoy four days of outdoor training, indoor stretching sessions, relaxing treatments and nourishing food while mixing with like-minded companions in luxurious and restful surroundings.

Our venue is a rustic-chic farmhouse in deepest Somerset, surrounded by nothing but glorious countryside.  We simply loved this haven of calm from the moment we arrived.  The original house dates back to the 18th Century and is surrounded by seven hundred acres of ancient forest. It has stylish, rustic-chic interiors, luxurious bedrooms and bathrooms, roaring open fires, a library full of wonderful books and a stunning glazed studio ideal for daily yogic stretches overlooking the gardens.

All this is ours alone to enjoy for three nights from 2 - 5 October.  On offer is a programme of Nixercise classes including daily, outdoor PowerWalk and BodyWeight sessions, led 5k runs, twice daily stretching sessions and for those who want to discover mindfulness, there will be a smattering of that too.  Wonderful treatments are available in a warm, calm therapy room to help you to wind down and relax.  As this is your retreat, everything is optional - if you wake up and decide you need a duvet day, that’s just fine!

We promise that nobody will go hungry.  All meals are provided and food will be a real highlight, prepared from scratch each day by chef Mark Mabon in the family-style kitchen at the heart of the retreat. Mark draws on a deep practical knowledge of the cleansing and healing properties of whole nourishing foods.  He has been catering for retreats for 15 years. Only local and organic produce is used and mealtimes are an ideal opportunity to wean yourself off sugar (and alcohol).

The Nixercise Retreat will above all be filled with fun and laughter, plenty of fresh air and lots of natural food. We are not about depriving ourselves of the good things in life, but adopting a long term outlook to help the mind and body function at its absolute best.

Places are limited to a maximum of 18 guests and will be allocated on a first come first-served basis. We hope this will be the first of many Nixercise retreats to come – so watch this space!
