In more detail...
The awesome Caroline Bragg will be your personal trainer for the week, helping you get back into exercise or upping your game. She'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.
Classes will include HIIT training, pilates, dance and boxing-based cardio, outdoor and indoor workouts as well as the all-important stretching element. Dads classes (also tailored to needs) mid-week are a chance for partners to get active. This gives mums a rest day, which helps muscles to recover and leaves your body ready to get back to it in the second half of the week
Your Personal Training sessions are a chance to really focus on elements specific to you, and you will also receive a personalised Training Plan to take home, designed by Caroline over the course of the week. Perfect to continue your good work!
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. As we're in Morocco, we’ll be using wonderful North African ingredients and spices as well as some local twists on favourites. We realise you’re on holiday too, so there is room for a glass of wine and a treat or two as well!
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. Tea, coffee, and water available to help yourself at all times.
It’s not often that a group of young parents come together in a totally relaxed setting. We hope that you’ll make friends, share your stories and come up for air together. We certainly learnt a few things and were able to help others with our own experiences on our first retreats.
We also help you spend time with your partner via childcare and babysitting nights (hello, date night, it’s been a while!) and when you’re eating with the group, it’s like a ready made dinner party.
Massages and mindfulness sessions are also included, so you can really switch off and learn to keep calm, switch off and be more present when you are back home again too.
Our stunning venues in Essaouira and near Marrakesh in Morocco, are the ideal locations for your revitalising re-boot. Our trusted venues are brilliant for relaxing and re-booting with luxury feel and decor, and warm &Breathe welcome we’re known for.
Our properties encompass beautiful estates close to the action but apart from the hustle and bustle of the medieval cities nearby and are super spots for coming up for air. &Breathe provides all the baby and fitness equipment you might need and the beautiful interiors are a big step up from the usual family-friendly venues! Essaouira and Marrakesh are both wonderful cities with plenty to see and experience, with coastlines, world-famous sites, local history, colourful souks and beautiful views.
Travel to Morrocco is not included. We recommend flights via Marrakech for our properties, as there are regular flights, multiple times per day and a choice of airlines. We will organise transfers from Marrakech airport with a trusted taxi firm at a specific time, but you are welcome to make your own way to the retreat from the airport. Flights to closer airports (Essaouira) may also be available nearer the time.
