In more detail...

fit

Everything you get on our award-winnings retreats and more: you will have an &Breathe specialist PT as your trainer for the week, helping you get back into exercise or upping your game. They'll ensure you get the right workout for you: taking into account your birth experience, general fitness level, weeks post-natal and any other aspects of your physical health - for both mums and dads. 

With grandparents joining, there will be specially-focused classes for different life stages and each adult's PT session will assess posture, core and pelvic floor as well as historical injuries and life-stage conditions in order to tailor the week to your needs.

Good exercise form and functional fitness are our focus, making sure you rehabilitate and build strength appropriate to you.  Classes are mix of cardio, strength training and toning classes as well as stretching and will be indoors and outdoors.  Our Run Club is also available for those with rehabbed pelvic floors and dads to enjoy the beautiful countryside.  You will also receive a Personal Training Plan to take home with you so you can carry on the good work at home!

Food

We’ll show you how you can eat healthily but with delicious food, and more importantly how you can keep on track when you get home, with recipe ideas, and shopping lists.  We realise you’re on holiday too, so there is room for a glass of wine and a slice or three of cheese - it would be rude not to in France!

Breakfasts are healthy and plentiful to set you up for the day.  Lunches are light but filling, such as hearty salads or a healthy soup to keep you going until dinner time.  Afternoon snacks are available before the second fitness classes of the day.  Dinners are healthy but rewarding, with a taste of France, and inspirational menus that you can re-create at home.

Tea, coffee, and other soft drinks available to help yourself at all times.
Plentiful table wine included and other alcoholic drinks available at the honesty bar.

Feel

We provide you with all the feel-good support that &Breathe is known for.  A luxury, safe space in which to really de-stress and feel like you again as well as hosts and trainers who really 'get it'.  All the &Breathe resources are available to you, and we also include more treatments and childcare hours as well as the option of a full-time on-call, maternity nurse.  Coming with extended family means you can fully relax in your home away from home, with those you know your routine and love spending time with. You might be surprised at how much more you engage with your other half when you're feeling much more like yourself too!

Identity

We're not going to lie: you can really lose sight of who you are when you have a baby.  Clio really struggled with it in her first year as a mum, and we know exactly which resources she found most helpful.  We arm you with a list of sites, advisors, blogs and forums that might just help ease your transition into this whole mum&dad thing.

Relaxation

You were up almost 24/7 for the first few weeks.  It might be less painful now, but isn’t it time you had a rest?  Our wonderful local therapists will see away your aches with their massage expertise.  We include a relaxing 60-minute massage for each adult during your stay, which will thoroughly de-stress you.  If that’s not enough, you can book as many further sessions as you like and we’ll organise payment on site.

CHILDCARE

Childcare during our Classic retreats is provided by professional nannies, who come to the Manoir especially for the retreats, as well as experienced parents and former nursery staff.
