One of our awesome &Breathe trainers will be your fitness guru for the week, helping you get back into exercise or upping your game.  They'll ensure you get the right workout for you: taking into account your birth experience, general fitness level, weeks post-natal and any other aspects of your physical health.

Classes will be a variety of formats to keep it interesting, both indoors and outdoors, to make the most of our beautiful surroundings.

Dads classes (also tailored to needs) mid-retreat are a chance for partners to get active and give mums a rest day, helping muscles recover for the second half of the week. Your Personal Training sessions focus on elements specific to you, and you will also receive a Training Plan to take home. Perfect to continue your good work!

We’ll show you how you can eat healthily but with delicious food, and more importantly how you can keep on track when you get home, via &Breathe recipes.  We realise you’re on holiday too, so there is room for a glass of wine and a slice or three of French cheese!

Breakfasts are healthy and plentiful to set you up for the day.  Lunches are light but filling, afternoon snacks are served before the afternoon fitness class.  Dinners are healthy but rewarding, with a taste of France. Tea, coffee, filtered water on tap.

It’s not often that a group of young parents come together in a totally relaxed setting.  We hope that you’ll make friends, share your stories and come up for air together.  We certainly learnt a few things and were able to help others with our own experiences on our first retreats.

We also help you spend time with your partner via childcare and babysitting nights (hello, date night, it’s been a while!) and suppers are like ready made dinner parties.

Massages and mindfulness sessions are also included, so you can really switch off and learn to keep calm, switch off and be more present when you are back home again too. Learn more about our Feel Good pillar here >>
