Detox juice fast retreat with yoga, fitness, guided walks and nutrition talks

About us

NUTRITION RETREAT

Juice Fasting & Nutrition with Yoga and Fitness

Fasting has been a part of human tradition for many, many centuries – most religions periodically fast as an act of faith or penance – often as a means of purification. Way back in the 5th century Hippocrates the Greek ‘Father of Medicine’, recommended abstinence from food to reduce symptoms of illness and boost immunity. In today’s increasingly materialistic and overindulgent society, regardless of our individual faith or non-faith traditions, we can all benefit from fasting from time to time.

Fasting has many health benefits. It provides our overworked digestive system a well-earned rest from near 24/7 breaking down of food all day and night. Cellular energy is diverted to maintenance and repair of other bodily systems. Ultimately caloric restriction, within limit, detoxifies the body, slows the ageing process and gives a significant boost to the immune system and energy levels.

At Wild View Retreat guests are provided 3 delicious juices everyday alongside a warming soup or nutritious drink in the evening. The juices have been carefully designed by our nutritional therapist to support the detox process yet keep nutrient levels sustained to enable daily participation of the fitness and yoga classes. The busy programme of activity is deliberate to keep you distracted while you go through the fast. A daily programme of workshops and talks are provided to support improving dietary and lifestyle habits. When guests’ finish the week they feel renewed and reenergised armed with the tools and techniques to make positive improvements to their lifestyle.

Note on the last day of the fast guests have the option to break the fast with food samples made during cooking demos under guidance of the nutritional therapist.

I've just come back from a week long fitness & yoga retreat. I loved everything about Wild View Retreat the location is beautiful, it feels secluded but is still close enough to Faro airport to be easy to get to. The mountain paths are great for early morning runs / hikes. The rooms are decorated very tastefully to a high standard, and I appreciate that a hair dryer, shampoo etc. comes as standard. The communal areas are spacious, and there is also plenty of outdoor space for relaxing, both down by the pool, the roof terrace, and space outside each room. Food and drink was delicious and Andrew really listened to the guests

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To feed my soul so that I may return to my students with more inspiration and love to share! Jennifer
