The programme also includes a consultation with practitioners from Talise Spa who will conduct their signature ‘Optimal Wellness Assessment’ for each guest.

Guests will learn a number of new life skills to hold them in good stead as they prepare to embrace life after the retreat.  Activities for the mind include early morning yoga sessions and daily food demonstrations by the Resort chefs to guide them in the preparation of shakes, snacks and meals with optimum nutrition for a healthy body.

There will also be daily talks from PTX experts covering Nutrition; Fitness, Health & Wellbeing and the opportunity for a private 1-2-1 mentoring sessions in order to establish and achieve personal health goals.
