Wellness retreats for a “good life

F Zeen Retreat’s mission is to immerse you in highly regenerating and soothing holistic health breaks.

The levers used here are yoga, breathing and connection to nature.

Each day is punctuated by several sessions of yoga, meditation, walking or physical activity.

La Retraite offers three magnificent outdoor yoga terraces. Each terrace has its own unique character, giving free rein to the practice of yoga and meditation.

The terraces are used during courses, but are also available to guests for personal practice whenever they wish.

A variety of health retreats designed to relax and restore body and mind.

Retreats combine different practices to reactivate the body, mind and circulation of energy in the organism. They are unique in their programming, once or twice a year for example, and are renewed each time.

One example is the 5-day retreat, “Go to the meeting of yourself through the connection to nature” .

This retreat is inspired by the four elements: water, air, earth and fire. By regularly connecting with these elements of nature, you teach your body to adjust to the natural rhythms that surround it.

Your days will be enriched by various yoga practices (yoga nidra, yin yoga, aerial yoga, vinyasa yoga), morning walks, meditation, singing bowl treatments and a detox diet. You won’t be able to resist for long – just let your body and mind do the talking, and you’ll see, they’ve got a lot to teach you!

Other Retreats are organized on a daily basis, such as “The Good Life Rituals “.

A full day dedicated to vitality, serenity, immunity and the need to live well in harmony.

Guests are encouraged to team up with the F Zeen team and set a specific goal: to introduce more healthy activities into your life while supporting each other to achieve it.

Mindfulness : recognizing nature as changing and learning to find balance in these changes by giving meaningful attention to each daily action: eating, walking, walking in nature, listening, observing, being in the present.

Reconnect with your original flow through Spa rituals

Of course, if you don’t want to fully commit to a retreat, you can take advantage of the spa, which boasts two influences for targeted, specific treatments.

Ariadne treatments are inspired by the natural therapeutic properties of Greek essences. Traditional herbs, volcanic soil, olives, roses and saffron are just some of the precious ingredients used in these treatments.

Voya skin care products draw their benefits from ingredients based on hand-harvested organic seaweed, renowned for its healing, nourishing and antiseptic properties, like caviar for the epidermis.

Anti-aging, detoxifying and moisturizing treatments. We particularly appreciate treatments that include the benefits of the hammam , such as the “Head to toe detox “. Wild rose and geranium are used in your aromatherapy treatment and diffused during your hammam. Your body, from hair to toe, is coated with nourishing, detoxifying, regenerating balms.

You can choose to combine the hammam an Atlantic seaweed bath. Seaweed is renowned for its detoxifying and pain-relieving properties. Their properties are exacerbated by the heat of the bath and their absorption by your epidermis reinforced by this gentle warmth.

You can also take your fight against stress to the limit with the bio-feedback methods available at the spa. Stress affects the proper functioning of the immune system, and can lead to chronic pain, sleep problems and emotional instability.

Using non-invasive biofeedback tools (measuring your stress levels and reducing them after treatment), you teach your body and mind to follow a healthier path for you and your future health. Bio-feedback treatments are specially dedicated to reactivating your energyflow, reopening your chakras, dealing with cigarette addiction or the discomforts of menopause.

F Zeen Retreat’s range of treatments promises calm, soothing, deep relaxation. Daily classes are organized around all these practices, so you can practice at your own pace: yoga, meditation, fitness, walking, breathwork, Qi Qong and mindfulness.
