Spring Detox Retreat, Friday September 30th – Monday October 3rd, 2016
Spring represents an awakening of the senses, an opportunity to shed layers as you emerge from hibernation during the colder months. There is a sense of renewal as we let go of the old and begin to blossom with the first warm rays of sun on the skin and the scent of jasmine in the air. Join Amanda & Miriam for our 4-day/3-night Spring Detox Retreat and leave feeling vital and glowing and ready to hit the beach!
We stay at the lovely Gymea Eco Retreat & Spa set on 113 acres of secluded naturally undulating rainforest just 40 minutes inland from the Gold Coast with stunning views of Wollumbin (Mt. Warning) in the UNESCO World Heritage national Park. With abundant bird life, lush grounds with nature trails, a gorgeously appointed in-house Day Spa with steam, sauna, magnesium mineral salt jacuzzi, plunge pool and a beautiful 20 metre magnesium mineral swimming pool for healing dips.
Accommodation is in 20 Eco Deluxe double rooms, which are all equipped with luxury 5 star eco inner sprung latex topped single or king beds. All bedding and room furnishings have been carefully selected to meet biodynamic or organic certification standards. Each room includes its own shower and toilet. If booking a twin share room we’ll put you with a same gender person. Please note that the shower is in the corner of the bedroom but has an opaque screen so is not see through.
ABOUT THE FOOD
Our meals are lovingly prepared using fresh organic ingredients sourced from the local area. This is not a fast so you won’t go hungry, however we cut out meat, most dairy foods, wheat, sugar, coffee and alcohol so your body will be lightly cleansing. Each morning after yoga we enjoy a fresh healthy cleansing juice before our lovely buffet breakfast. Tea and fruits are available throughout the retreat as well as purified drinking water. By the end of the retreat you’ll be feeling energised, clear and nourished with recipes and ideas for continuing your healthy eating at home.
Included in the cost of the retreat is a 2 hour day spa session plus your choice of a one hour Therapeutic Massage or one hour Organic Facial. Additional treatments can be booked directly with the Gymea Day Spa.
