Our Restore and Revitalise retreats provide space for you to rest and relax, reconnect with yourself and regain your focus and energy. During a retreat we offer you daily yoga and meditation sessions, up to three complementary treatments during the course of the week, and you can participate in workshops, our 'tea time talks' and our group sessions. Although we provide a daily programme none of it is obligatory. We believe it is really important for you to be able to take back some control of your life and that is why we leave it entirely up to you to choose what you would like to participate in, and there is absolutely no problem if you opt to to simply sit in the garden, read a book or go for a walk.
"After a week at Puyssentut I feel revitalized, motivated to make changes to me life and optimistic for the future. I can try and take some control back by using the skills I have developed here." Sue
All meals and refreshments are included in the price. We offer 3 warm meals a day based on a diet that is cow's milk-free (we do sometimes use products made from sheep and goat's milk), mostly vegetarian (we might provide some fish dishes), and sugar-free. We are also happy to cater for any other specific dietary needs. There are regular refreshment breaks and you are welcome to help yourself to drinks as and when you desire them.
Because we believe that how you eat is as important for your wellbeing as what you eat, meals are taken together. The convivial atmosphere of mealtimes means our retreats are very sociable affairs. However, if what you need is time for yourself then we would encourage you to take it, and you will find lots of space in the day where you can do your own thing.
"I feel so much better! I have put on weight, gained energy and strength and feel completely relaxed. I am sure I will cope with the remainder of my chemo treatment so much better now." Carl
The most important thing about being at a Puyssentut retreat is that you are able to be yourself. We do not have a philosophy that we want to impose on you and for us it doesn't matter if you don't take anything away with you, but if you do go home inspired we're always delighted. Puyssentut is a place for you to do as you please.
