Press release: London 12 April 2012
It may be hard to imagine now – but hopefully it won’t be long before the summer wardrobes and bikinis will be making an appearance. This spring The Healthy Holiday Company is offering a series of holidays across southern France and Spain to help you look and feel your best in time for the summer season. The retreats include in:spa detox retreats, more fitness weeks orientated breaks with fitscape, and Eastern-inspired zen and tranquillity with destination yoga.
Challenge yourself on an intense health week in southern Spain
A stunning boutique hotel just 20 minutes from the coast near Sotogrande is the setting for this ‘intense’ retreat, a step up from the classic in:spa package for those looking for a more demanding experience and physical challenge. Supported by the in:spa team of experts, participants will enjoy the same delicious and nutritious cuisine, yoga and group exercises and hikes through the surrounding countryside, simply on a more intense level. Whether seeking improved fitness, weight loss, or a heightened sense of overall wellbeing, participants on this retreat will find themselves challenged, stimulated and ultimately revitalised.
Dates: 2nd – 9th May 2012 plus dates in July, August and September (and elsewhere throughout the year)
Price: From 2,295 per person for seven nights including accommodation with all meals, transfers, group activities, one to one nutritional consultation, personal training session and two massages. Based on two sharing and excluding flights.

Find inner peace where south East Asia meets southern Spain
New to the destination yoga programme for 2012, Shanti Som is a luxury Balinese style boutique hotel in Andalucía, a beautiful slice of south East Asia in the hills just north of Marbella. With elegantly designed accommodation and a liberal sprinkling of giant Buddhas, this is the perfect tranquil retreat from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Complimented by nutritious cuisine, the destination yoga retreats include morning and evening classes as well as opportunities to walk in the beautiful countryside, enjoy massage treatments or simply relax by the pool. Led by Emma Henry, an expert Jivamukti yoga teacher, classes are uplifting and nurturing with an inspirational soundtrack and plenty of laughter.
Dates: 4th – 11th May 2012 and future retreats throughout the year in Spain, France, Greece and Italy
