Summary of what to expect…..

Flights from Liverpool arrive in Bergerac mid afternoon on the Tuesday and you will be collected by car for the short transfer. On arrival at the retreat one of the first things you will notice is how calm and peaceful the area is. The nearest town is five miles away, so the only sounds are from local wildlife and farm animals.
After receiving a welcome drink you will be given a tour of the grounds before gathering for your first evening workout (either yoga in the traditional French barn or fitness session overlooking rolling fields and vineyards). This will be followed by dinner served in the garden of the cottage, with excellent local wines available at very reasonable prices.

The remaining days will begin with an uplifting morning yoga session or fitness workout followed by a hearty and nutritious continental style breakfast. Guests will then be free to spend the day as they wish, with packed lunches provided. Pedal bikes and maps will be available for guests to explore the beautiful local countryside, or they can simply relax around the grounds and by the natural pool.
Optional short day trips will be provided to give guests an opportunity to explore and appreciate the local area. On site massages will also be available and these are top quality at very reasonable prices.
Guests will come together in the early evenings for relaxing yoga and meditation, or more high intensity fitness training. The days will end with an evening meal based mainly around local fresh and seasonal vegetables with lean meats and fish (vegetarians and vegans will be catered for).

Friday evening will be slightly different in that the group will head out for a wine tasting session followed by a meal in a lovely restaurant in Eymet.

There will be a final yoga session on the Saturday morning followed by a lazy brunch to end the retreat.

Comments from previous guests:
‘ a wonderful week of yoga and relaxing at an idyllic retreat. My every need was catered for and it was a joy from start to end, thank you!’ – Graeme, Manchester

“Nice to go somewhere isolated but not too far from towns. So quiet and no light pollution. Never see so many stars at home”.
“Best vegan catering ever”. – Gordon, Manchester

“I loved the area, as soon as I got out of the car I felt relaxed. After doing the bike ride I noticed there was miles of area to do hikes or rides”. – Paul, Manchester

“The food, yoga, location and even the circuit training far exceeded my expectations. Plus everyone there was super friendly too, which made it a really lovely experience”.
“This was the first retreat I’ve attended and actually felt more like holidaying with friends rather than a health retreat with a bunch of strangers!” – Melanie, Manchester

About JT Fitness

Joe has always been passionate about health and fitness and has over 20 years experience of weight training and general conditioning, he has played a wide variety of sports and completed several half and full marathons, including the New York Marathon twice!

After 12 years as a police officer Joe is now embarking on a career change to follow his passion of helping others reach their fitness goals.

‘I always thought I had all the knowledge I needed about training and nutrition, but once I began studying I realised just how little I actually knew!! I have since made massive changes to my nutrition, training and general lifestyle, which has led to me feeling fitter in my late 30’s (I know it’s hard to believe I am that old!) than I was in my early 20’s. There is so much to learn and I now want to pass on my knowledge to help people reach their potential.’

Joe believes everyone has their individual limitations but there are endless ways we can all improve ourselves physically, mentally and emotionally. Most of us lead busy and stressful lives, with exercise and good nutrition often taking a back seat. With an aim to help push health up the list of priorities – ‘the key is to hammer away at the excuses and form the motivation to develop as many good habits as possible. Too many people spend most of the year ignoring their health then suddenly embark on a crash diet two weeks before a big event or holiday. The key to improving health is slow, steady progress with a long term commitment. Remember health is for life not just for holidays!’

Pregnancy Yoga Flow Routine

pregnancy dancer outsideI’ve been practicing Yoga all the way through my pregnancy and have found this incredibly beneficial with helping to support my changing body, keeping my mind calm and finding that special time where I can relax and focus on my baby. I thought it would be great to share this with you so here’s a quick Yoga Flow workout for you all to enjoy during pregnancy. * always consult your GP or midwife before you commence in any exercise program.

 Pregnancy Yoga Flow Routine

The Sun Salutations have been adapted to accommodate your changing body and bump. Feel free to hold postures slightly longer perhaps 5 to 10 breaths and repeat the sequence between 3 – 6 times. Always let the breath lead you into the Yoga asanas (poses) and practice breathing consciously (Ujjai Breath is ideal), never force the postures this should feel like your gently opening the body up. Be mindful of your own posture drawing attention to pelvic alignment, keeping a slight lift in the pelvic floor and feeling like your gently hugging your baby towards you. Allow your shoulders to draw back slightly so that your chest is open and keep your jaw and facial muscles soft and relaxed.

You can relax at the end in Savasana either using cushions or Yoga bolsters for support and lying on your left side if lying on your back is no longer comfortable, close the eyes and visualise your baby happy, peaceful and content as you also rest feeling completely relaxed and at ease.
