"Guys PMac, Estelle and Sally, I really cannot put into works what this retreat has done for me. I have hurt in places I have never felt before and bent body parts I never thought I could. I have made life long friends and wouldn't change my experience for the world.  Thank you all for the experience and for the hard work you have put in to make it so special for us all. Challenging, inspiration and unforgettable it has truly been life changing. Love you all thank you again. Ceilidh xx"

"Estelle, one of the most beautiful humans I ever will meet. Your warmth and light radiates from your head to your feet with kindness and compassion and that unique gentle touch, you have given me the gift of yoga to love so very much!
Sally, you are the one who has kept everything running like a dream, you have a very special gift, bringing us all together as a team. Your efforts have not gone unnoticed accommodating every single request, always available, ready with a smile and a hug, without you this retreat wouldn't have been the best.
PMAC the guy online of whose content I was a fan, this week though I met Peter, what a genuine, big hearted gentlemen! All you ask it trust but what you give is so much more, an unfaltering belief that each and everyone of us could be better than before.  Through every failed attempt, I hope we aid you proud, and don't forget pet.... one, two, squeeze, four, five... it helps to count out loud!!This isn't the journey rather it is just the start, and for giving me the belief to keep going, I thank you for the bottom of my heart.   Big love all round, Rachel"

Fitness retreat at Finca Monasterio in Andalusia

Venue

Old monastery converted into a hotel

Beautiful location, surroundings, peaceful and calming

Rooms are lovely with antique furniture, so beautiful and clean

Swimming pool is a fair size, clean and very refreshing.

Staff

Friendly and very hospitable, they tended to all our needs without any hesitation.

The owner of the hotel is from Ireland, he is friendly, courteous and very accommodating and has 2 gorgeous dogs.

Food

The food was amazing, very tasty and lots of it

Everyone was catered for, there were some great food choices for everyone

Breakfast, lunch, dinner and 2 snacks served everyday all freshly made

There were definitely no complaints from our group

 

Retreat

This retreat was superb; it was everything I wanted in a retreat, some intense exercises (very gruelling), calming yoga and meditation (very relaxing)

We did 8 classes per day, starting with a 5k run first thing in the morning

The group members were all so amazing, friendly, helpful and a great team to work out with

We were all there for different reasons and from all different walks of life

 

Trainers

PMAC is the trainer that did all the intense exercises, I’m not going to lie it was hard work

He is tough, encouraging, helpful and explained all the exercises before and whilst we did our daily routine.  If there were any exercises you couldn’t do, he would show you this in depth after the class and help you master the exercise

 

Estelle is an inspirational yoga teacher; she is brilliant, helpful, encouraging, pleasant, patient and has a lovely persona about her.

Her yoga classes are relaxing, she taught us all a lot, if there was a pose you couldn’t do for whatever reason she would help and encourage you to achieve that goal, which a few of us did

I have never liked yoga, but after Estelle’s session I became a lover of it.

I loved all her classes and feel like I benefited from each one.

She was very accommodating in every way, an amazing lady.

 

Lastly Sally organised all the flights and transfers, she did an outstanding job getting us all to the venue on time.

She accommodated every ones needs as much as she could and always with a smile on her face

 

All in all this is an amazing and more importantly an enjoyable retreat, It was one of the best experiences of my life and I will definitely l be booking to attend the next one that’s for sure.
