Dream up a New Year retreat. Book the Yeotox in Devon and everything seems better.

Eurgh! Christmas is over, the New Year has begun, you’re bloated, your life is totally digital and everything just feels too much. We hear you. Hang on in there; time to book a New Year retreat and give yourself a little spiritual overhaul.

Consider a five-day jaunt at Yeotown, a unique UK Health Retreat. Yeotown is an award-winning idyllic rural getaway, set deep within the lush rolling hills of North Devon and just 15 minutes from the wild and rugged Atlantic Ocean.

The 5-day programme is called the Yeotox Retreat and runs from Wednesday to Sunday each week. Prices start at £1,870 and include all meals, train station transfer, snacks, fresh pressed juices, accommodation, activities and massages. The time will be spent learning about health, doing fitness and supporting your physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Expect to hike many miles and go cycling whatever the weather, reconnect with nature, do fitness training, boxing workouts. It’s not all about getting the heart racing, there will also be daily mindfulness and meditation sessions, nutritional chats, cookery sessions, yoga, massage, soaks in the hot tub and reading by a roaring fire or in the lush gardens. Guests talk about feeling more energized, more engaged and more empowered to return to their every day life after the retreat.

And if you can’t face getting in the car to drive west, there’s good news for you city folk. In September 2017, they opened their long awaited Yeotown Kitchen in London; this is more than just a healthy café selling nutritious food and organic coffees, it also has a Meditation Station. Customers are invited to relax and recharge in their mood-boosting meditation pods designed to nurture the mind and spirit.

So, if you want a little breathing space, detox from devices and (fad-free) weight loss, you know where to scroll. Book yourself a Yeotox!
