The ultimate summer retreat!

Constantly juggling work with a busy social calendar can leave you feeling rundown, stressed and exhausted. That’s why we always encourage taking a break every now and then – and if you’re looking for the ultimate summer retreat to help you kick back and unwind, we’ve got you covered.

Summer RESET is a week-long urban retreat brought to you by the wonderful Walthamstow-based yoga studio, East of Eden. This summer, between 24-30 July, they’ll help you supercharge your wellbeing with a bunch of energising classes and workshops taught by Pilates and yoga experts that are sure to help you get your health back on track. Whether it’s yoga, meditation or advice on nutrition you’re after, there’s something for everyone.

We’ve all heard of those exotic yoga retreats located in the most untouched parts of paradise, but Summer RESET could bring that paradise to you. It’s designed to give you the benefits of a retreat away but without the hefty price tag, so you can reach your zen far more accessibly. At only £100 per person, we reckon it’s worth a go.

East of Eden co-founder and yoga teacher Naomi Costantino explains ‘that everything in life works in line with the cycles of nature. The way we practise yoga, look after our body and work with our energy should be no different. More flow and ease can be found when we stay in tune with these seasonal cycles instead of being out of sync with the environment around us.’ That’s why during the retreat, you’ll also have unlimited access to their yoga and Pilates studios for five days – just enough time to wind down and work on your physical, emotional and mental wellbeing.

A five-day nutrition plan created by resident nutritionist, Kate Whitelock, a special gift from Lifebox and a bespoke veg box will also be included.

Summer is supposed to be a time of release, fulfilment and high energy – so make yours just that by reconnecting with your mind and body. What better way to do that by surrounding yourself with like-minded people who are also passionate about their health and wellbeing?
