Five reasons you should go on a retreat

December... You’re stressing about getting everything done before the holidays. You’re eating and drinking more than normal. You don’t seem to have a spare hour to get to your spin class. So, why not book in some me-time for 2020? Here are a few reasons why a Sand Sea Spa retreat is a great way to kick-start the new decade.

  • Take time for yourself

Family, friends, work... life can get pretty busy. Can you even remember the last time you had a whole weekend to focus only on you? By taking yourself away from the day-to-day, you’ll recharge your batteries and refocus. That’s not just good for you, it’ll be good for the people around you too.  

  • Get out of your comfort zone

Always wanted to try surfing? Fancy having a go at yoga? A retreat that offers lots of different activities might be just the push you need. You’ll be in safe hands as you try some new stuff and, hopefully, you’ll love it so much that you’ll keep doing it when you get home.

  • Change your habits

We know, this is absolutely the worst time of the year to eat healthily. But once Christmas is over, you might decide it’s the right time to switch up your food. On our retreats, you’ll get delicious, healthy, nutritious meals – made from local produce, where possible – that should inspire you to eat more healthily all the time.

  • Disconnect from technology, connect with nature

Step away from your phone, there’s a big, beautiful world out there! When you’re with us, we’ll encourage you to switch off your devices as much as possible. Instead, walk barefoot in the sand, surf in the Atlantic ocean and run the Tarka Trail. For a few days, enjoy a physical, mental and digital detox.

  • Meet new people

We know from running KBPT that our approach to fitness attracts like-minded people. We’re all about balance. Yes, we enjoy doing burpees but we also love a glass of wine! That’s why we’re confident you’ll meet some great people on our retreats. During your weekend together – wiping out in the waves, HIITing in the gym, zoning out in yoga and belly laughing over dinner – we’re sure you’ll make lots of new friends.
