Retreat 2018

 

Virtuoso Retreat in Lanzarote:  14 – 21 October 2018

 

We are pleased to introduce and announce our special retreat for this year in October.

Why not start planning your Autumn break now and book what will be an insightful luxurious break away.

The emphasis for this retreat is for you to take time out from your busy schedule, relax, recharge and energise.

The goal of this retreat is to give you an introduction into achieving better health and longevity through natural practices, classes and hands on workshops with our professional health coach and holistic executive chef, Guilda.  Guilda is not only the owner of Virtuoso Foods, she is a professional Vegan, Gluten Free & Raw chef, now specialising in Macrobiotics. She will be showing, guiding and teaching you how to cook with seasonal produce to create delicious dishes.

The daily schedule will include cooking demonstrations and workshops, hands on cooking, talks and discussions on daily specific subjects around food and health as well as daily meditation classes and offering yoga practices.  You will leave filling refreshed having thoroughly enjoyed some ‘you’ time in magical luxurious settings with access to all modern conveniences.  You will also have plenty of ‘free’ time to enjoy the villa and pool, it’s surroundings as well as the local beaches and town.
