Nutrition and Yoga Week

CroppedSpiceNewsletter-1We’re exactly half way through a detox week.  Something that we really needed to do since hosting our Gourmet Puglia weeks in September!  I have to say that although I occasionally have a reflex reaction to find my wine glass, we actually feel great and are both finding it easier to abstain than we expected.  And that in a very large part is due to Monica from Appleaday.  With gentle encouragement, a wealth of information about health and nutrition, a lot of humour and enviable energy, Monica is leading an online Detoxathon this week, posting menus and recipes for over fifty wannabe detoxers to follow.

Sometimes you just click with people, and we soon started a mutual admiration of each other’s businesses, and the inevitable happened.  Plans for an Appleday Yoga Solari holiday.  I’m delighted to announce the itinerary here:

Location: Trullo Solari, Puglia, Italy

What’s included:

Daily morning yoga session with Paul Fountain

Daily nutrition talk with Monica, on a variety of topics including Ayuverda, boosting immune health, and detoxing your home.

Cookery demonstrations and a hands-on pizza making evening (with wood-burning oven).

Local excursions, including;  visit to local ancient olive farm to discover the history of olive oil, and how to tell a good oil; visit old towns and local markets; trip to the beach.

A one to one consult with Monica including an iridology analysis and an individual nutrition programme to take home.

Delicious, healthy meals freshly prepared from local produce, based on Monica’s insightful menus.  Optional wine included.

Payable Extras: Extra consults with Monica.  Fantastic massages from Jola.  For those wanting to explore more, you can walk to Ceglie Messapica or travel to Lecce, Martina Franca, Manduria or Alberobello easily from the local train station.

Date: October 11th to 18th 2014.

Price: £995 per person, based on shared occupancy.

Imagine, a holiday of relaxation and fun that’s good for your health!
