More information about new editions, prices and dates coming soon.
Wake up at the crack of dawn and from the veranda of Blanc Bleu, your private villa for the next seven days, you are going to contemplate a dramatic scene: the dawn in Gouverneur’s mountains, the most secluded and private area of St Barths island.
While you take frequent sips of Alkaline water combined with an aloe vera juice, you feel how you revitalize your inside. Admittedly, this is only the beginning. Ahead you have one week to recover the energy and balance you’ve lost due to the stress of modern life.
Aminata, the retreat leader, gathers you in the vicinity of Blanc Bleu and you accompany him for a 90 minutes session of yoga, where you and the rest of the small group, will learn different yoga positions to get back your balance and concentration. The transformation and the path to encounter with yourself is closer than you think. To achieve your aim, you’ll have during the whole duration of the program Iris and Filippa, two members of Aminata’s team, that will help you to find the inner peace you have been yearning for so long through the cleanse of body and coaching.
In the afternoon, it’s time to take the yacht and go sailing. While some of you are having fun snorkeling in the turquoise waters of the island, others are simply swimming in the deep blue sea or sunbathing. To replenish forces Iris will prepare you a plant based picnic.
Back at the Blanc Blue, it’s time for a coaching session with Filippa, your spiritual guide in this retreat, who will open your heart and help you to get your inner peace through meditation.
As the days pass by, you are starting to fall in love with this unique spot on earth. You will be in total union with nature and with yourself. Your body is cleansed, your mind clear and you feel how the energy flows with strength again, inside of you.
7 days of purifying diet, 7 days of yoga, 7 days of meditation and 7 days of health coaching, while you enjoy side activities such as snorkeling or surfing. At the end of the week you will have grown and improved holistically. Now you are capable of anything. The world is yours! Ready?
