About the location
Aberfeldy, Scotland’s healthiest town, couldn’t be more inspiring. The retreat is based at one between two of the town’s finest guest houses, a stone’s throw from each other. Aberfeldy is minutes from Loch Tay and is an easy drive from central Scotland with its major airports, or a short taxi from Pitlochry station.
How the retreat works
The retreat is hosted by Amanda and a hand-picked team of experts. Designed to help reset both body and mind, the nutrition programme is based on intermittent fasting and tailored nutrition menus that are as delicious as they are nutritious!
You will be intermittent fasting (I.F) using the 16/8 fasting method - in essence, skipping breakfast and taking part in activities such as yoga, pilates and foraging walks before lunch. This is the fasting style favoured by many people looking to lose weight whilst staying - or getting active. For any of our guests who wish to not lose weight we have the option of an extra meal each day. There are vegan and vegetarian options throughout. For all participants there's a stunning 5-course vegan tasting menu on our final evening.
Amanda and yoga teacher Tina are the hosts for the event, with additional guest experts on cooking, mindset and fitness.
Guests are asked to arrive by Thursday afternoon. Guidance can be given on travel options. Thursday's schedule includes a welcome dinner, evening talk and wind down yoga followed by a detox bath.
Mornings are packed full of activities during the fasting window followed by a lovely lunch. Afternoons are focused on workshops in nutrition, cooking and mindset, with outdoor trips and activities included. There is an optional visit to the famed 'Hot Box' wellness spa on the banks of Loch Tay - taking a dip is optional!
The inspiring experience includes group sessions in yoga and pilates. Regardless of your current exercise regime, you will leave feeling significantly fitter, healthier and happier. There’s also time to soothe muscles and de-stress the mind with optional massage treatments that can be arranged.
With a final focus on goal setting, motivation and ongoing aftercare, this retreat is an ideal kick-start to longer term results.
