The focus on this weekend will be detoxifying the body and food is a big part of this! All meals will be vegan with no gluten and sugar included. I am passionate about sharing my love of healthy food and showing people that food that nourishes you can be totally scrumptious too – not a cardboard veggie burger in sight – I promise!!
Daily meditation and yoga classes will be offered in a way to relax, stimulate, and help you grow in your own personal practice. Classes are open to all levels, beginner to practiced, and can range from gentle, restorative, and more vigorous vinyasa flow and ashtanga styles.* Style and class levels will be determined and moulded to fit participating guests’ needs.
Suzanne, will facilitate the classes to make sure that everyone has the attention they need as well as keeping the flow of the class for those practitioners wanting more of a challenging class. You can look forward to gaining new insights into your body and movements – no matter what the level.
* Participation in classes and activities is optional throughout the retreat. All levels welcome!

TESTIMONIALS FROM PAST RETREAT PARTICIPANTS
“It was a truly fabulous retreat and exceeded even the Suzanne Cork standard (which is already super high!). Within the first two hours of arriving, I went from being stressed and overwhelmed to feeling calm and relaxed.I do think that Hatta Fort itself must have some magical, calming aura, particularly with the amazing views over the mountains and the fresh air. The retreat group was a delight to spend time with and hanging out together felt easy and relaxed. The yoga was fun and challenging in just the right proportions and there was something particularly special about the sunset yin yoga. Thank you for organising such a fantastic weekend and sign me up for the next one!” – Saarah Badr, 31, Lawyer
“The timing of the retreat was a perfect challenge. I don’t think I have ever been as stressed or in need of calm but in all honesty, I was sceptical that it could be achieved. The combination of physically challenging yoga, meditation, beautiful setting and openness of the group has been very special. I feel recharged, reconnected, calm and determined to use some of my learning to bring change to the challenges of ‘real life’. A fantastic weekend, which I am confident will have a huge impact. Thank you, thank you, thank you!” – Anon
“I felt like I was on holiday for the weekend. I’m leaving feeling calm, refreshed and ready for the week ahead. If you’re tired of brunches and hangovers, this is a great experience to really detox and develop yourself. Will definitely come back and will definitely bring friends.” – Laura, 28, Teacher
“I’m very glad I came on this retreat. It was just the right mix of meditation, yoga and free time. Suzanne is very real and grounded and that mixed with her calm, capable competence as a yoga teacher is a great combination. I was particularly happy that the retreat worked well for yoga experts and for complete novices like myself. I’m going home feeling more centred and calm about what next. Thanks Suzanne.” – Tricia Evans, 59, Leadership Coach
“There were so many reasons for attending this retreat. I have felt so fortunate to share this experience with my two best friends and feel it has strengthened our connection to each other on so may levels. I have been completely overwhelmed by moments, many of them unspoken, and the conversations I have been able to have with others also on the retreat. It has been a try life experience that will stay with me forever. I feel very blessed to have had this experience – hard to convey in so few lines! Thank you Suzanne, it has been amazing.” – Anon
“You are very talented at what you do. Bringing together a bunch of strangers and achieving the energy and relaxed atmosphere you did was brilliant. More of the same please.” – Jenny, 32
“The weekend has made me relax and feel revived after arriving on Thursday night in one mindset, I’ll be leaving today in a much different more free mindset. Thank you it has been really special :)” – Hannah, 26, Teacher
“A wonderful weekend of yoga, meditation, healthy food and relaxation in a beautiful setting with great company. I left feeling the opposite of how I arrived, relaxed and reinvigorated as opposed to stressed and exhausted! Suzanne is a fantastic yoga instructor, she makes all levels feel comfortable and provides excellent commentary on the benefits and purposes of the postures. Lots of great added extras like juices and reiki (which I probably wouldn’t have tried otherwise) or a massage. Thanks Suzanne!” – Louise Shelford, Lawyer
