Do you need to recover from the exhaustion and burnout of modern day life?
Our Evolve Health Natural Movement retreat enables you to break out of your normal routine to recharge and reboot. Based on the latest evolutionary science, you will take part in engaging activities designed to boost your mental and physical performance.
Come and join a group of like-minded people and expert instructors trained in evolutionary nutrition and natural movement.
Be open, be ready, embrace change!
Staying in a beautiful late 19th century lodge set in the woods and hills of the Luberon, for five days and nights you will eat fabulous food, breathe clean air, engage in stimulating and fun activities and get plugged into the deep wisdom of your own body and natural surroundings with expert instruction on tap.
It will kick-start positive changes in your immune system, sleep-wake cycle, stress levels, and energy levels as well as increasing your fat-burn potential i.e. metabolic flexibility, and that is health! Health translates into passion for life.
When you go home the exhaustion and burn out will be replaced by a new sense of wellbeing, of wonder, of community, and you will have imprinted a healthier lifestyle full of wisdom and purpose.
This is no ordinary retreat. It is a unique and exclusive programme, with limited places available, where we focus on the human interaction with nature through a variety of research-based tools and activities, which are the underpinning of the science of psychoneuroimmunology. You will learn about forest baths, brown fat, sleep-wake and feeding cycles, immune response times, the value of cuts, grazes and stings, how your gut bacteria influence your brain and many, many more fascinating topics that will change the way you manage your health.
Be prepared for:
- A digital detox
- A night under the stars
- Cold dips
- Sound and vibration therapy
- Good food & wine
- Music & dancing
We want you to return to your ancestral movement behaviours that you don't use any more. e.g. to jump over, crawl under and climb obstacles, or hike to gather food. We also want you to breathe like your ancestors breathed, pumping in the oxygen, flooding your tissues, hastening your nervous system response times, increasing endurance, flexibility, and muscle power.
All the necessary movements and breathing we do in the day aren't those that make us optimally functional, nor physically and mentally strong, adaptable and resilient.
The outcome of this training and practice is: greater performance, greater endurance, greater muscular-skeletal awareness resulting in less injury, greater mind-body interaction with internal mindfulness and external awareness.
Not only that, but you will be in the present moment, without digital disturbance, and close to your fellow humans. You will reset your sleep/wake cycle and your ability to connect to your own needs and emotions and those of people around you.
Among other skills and qualifications, Fleur Borrelli is a certified natural movement coach and HeartMath instructor, and Francesca is a certified yoga instructor and has completed the Wim Hof Method.
Francesca: having spent all my life enjoying the cuisine from many different countries, I delight in preparing any dish or combination of flavours that delights the taste-buds. My training as a chef combined with the nutritional therapy allows me to bring the excitement to the high nutrient density, fresh, local produce I choose to cook with, as well as support local farmers and minimise plastic waste wherever I am. My motto is 'Look good, taste good, feel good'!
Fleur: I've translated some of my passion for healthy, delicious food into the recipes in my In-Sync book, where I focus on foods that replenish and nourish after activity, with a big focus on plant foods. With Francesca we will bing some of these recipes to life for you on the retreat, and encourage people to get involved if they feel inspired, or just cheer from the sidelines.
