Our weight loss package is back with more flexibility and packed with loads more tools and added extras to help you start 2020 feeling healthy and supported on your weight loss journey. Begin the new year as you mean to continue with a truly active week filled with healthy weight loss advice, guidance and strategies. The healthy weight loss package is available from January to March 2020 and is focused on helping you to lose weight, in a healthy way and at the same time giving you great value for money with savings of up t0 143€ on the weight loss bundle! We will provide you with extra support both while at the retreat and for when you get home with even more education and additional sessions to set you up for success.
La Crisalida Retreats’ healthy weight loss package is available between Tuesday 7th January until 31st March 2020 inclusive with a flexible day of arrival.
We believe healthy weight loss comes from making longer-term changes to your lifestyle. The activities and the inclusions in the package are aimed at getting you started on some of these changes while you’re here at the retreat which you can then continue and incorporate into your routine after you return home. In addition to weight loss you might also experience a reduction in your blood pressure, as your body starts to relax.
Lose weight, in a healthy way
Many areas of your life including what you eat, what you do and how you think are integral to helping you lose weight and reach your optimal weight. The healthy weight loss package will give you the boost you need to create a healthy lifestyle that is sustainable.
One on one support
Within 24 hours of arrival, you will have a personal session with one of our programme team who will also undertake a session where we look at a snapshot of your physical health. This session is a useful tool in supporting your weight loss goals as in the body composition analysis we will measure your weight, body/fat/water mass, BMI (body mass index), BMR (basal metabolic rate), plus more. We will explain to you what all these numbers mean AND give you tips on what you can do to make positive steps towards losing weight, improving your BMI and more. Before you leave you will repeat the measurements, so you can see the results of your week.
Included will be a 30-minute personal 1:1 activity session with one of the programme team where you can get some one on one time to help you work on an exercise or an area that you would like to see improve. Choose from a fitness session or a yoga-for-weight-loss session.
Relaxation is an integral part of weight loss as the stresses of our modern-day lives can generate higher levels of cortisol in our bodies. Cortisol can disrupt the hormonal balance and can be a factor in weight gain. As part of your weight loss bundle, you will receive a 50-minute relaxing massage that uses specific aromatic organic essential oils to help stimulate blood flow. Massage is a wonderful way to release tension, relax and promote a general feeling of well-being.
Get your body moving in our daily guided walks through the lovely local area – into the natural park, along the coast and into the woods. At the same time, it’s important to tone your body, in our daily yoga classes, to gain both strength and flexibility. And there are also 60 minutes of exercise classes every day, which will include rebounding, leg bums and tums, yoga-lates and more.
This year we’re equipping you with some fun and useful La Crisalida branded goodies for you to use during your stay and to take home afterwards. Included will be a cookery apron for the demos, a baseball cap and a reusable water bottle for your daily walks. We will also supply a fitness resistance band that you can use in the exercise sessions and work on with the follow-up activities we will provide you as a take-home.
We recommend during the week that you juice for at least three days. We will support you with your juicing and healthy eating by including four healthy supplement shots per day, one at each mealtime. After three days you can choose to continue to juice or you could swap to eating one plant-based meal a day (click on the links to read more about juicing and food). We strongly recommend that you eat at least one plant-based meal before you leave. We will talk to you about this in your 1:1 session when you arrive at the retreat and our programme team will be available throughout your stay for support.
At the retreat, we offer prebiotic support for your digestive system with natural plant-based food and juices. The healthy weight loss bundle offers additional support for your overall gut health. Probiotics help get the good bacteria back in, as stress can often take its toll. Digestive enzymes that support your gut in the transition from juice to food and help neutralise stomach acid. Supplement shots that provide a wealth of vitamins and minerals and promote the overall health of the body.
At La Crisalida we believe education is important to create success, so during your week you can also participate in a group cooking demo and a group juicing demo where we give you recipes and tips for cooking plant-based food and making juices at home. You will also have a special workshop which is focused on continuing your healthy eating at home, packed with nutritional information, key foods that are easy to incorporate into your daily cooking and more. We want you to leave feeling confident that when you return home you can continue in your new healthy lifestyle. There will also be workshops to help with mindset, to create successful thinking about your weight loss goals and life with takeaway tips and actions for you to do at home, to maintain your healthy weight.
Choose your accommodation to suit your personal needs – whether it’s a shared apartment (twin or multi-share), private apartment or your own private bedroom in a shared apartment, it’s your choice.
