Welcome to our health and wellbeing blog

Our passion here at the retreat is health and wellbeing, so our blog is packed with articles, tips, ideas and news about all things health and wellbeing!

This month the theme for our new articles is time to breathe.

Life can be very busy and sometimes it´s good to take time out to pause, breathe and reflect. Whilst breathing is something that comes naturally to us all, many of us pay little attention to it on a regular basis. Our new articles this month look at how breathing impacts upon on our health. In our life makeover article we look at how to use breathing to alleviate depression, anxiety and panic. In restorative yoga we use breathing to deepen our relaxation and connection to self. We also look at breathing and our cells – find out which foods to include in your diet to oxygenate your body and help prevent the damaging effect of free radicals. There are also two new recipes to help your body to breathe.

You will also find lots more articles about yoga, life makeover, detox, weightloss and nutrition, in addition to a growing resource of plant-based food and juice recipes on this page. To help you enjoy and explore our blog, there is a handy search box to look for specific words, or you can click on the categories to see more.
