We offer a world-class luxurious facility immersed in a Mediterranean setting. Lefkada Retreat is the perfect place to relax and experience tranquillity.

The Human Method is a powerful practice of brain-body re-education, breathwork, anatomy in movement, somatic yoga flow, and deep rest.

You will enjoy carefully designed practices to help you let go of unhelpful patterns in the body and mind and lay down new possibilities for movement and for your life.

The Human Method has helped many people reduce their stress and anxiety, sleep better, function at their optimum, and stay emotionally resilient in an ever-changing environment.

• Energy shifting practises in the morning to lengthen, strengthen and. mobilise
• De-stressing practises in the evening to unravel, unwind and reorganise

“I’ve designed this retreat as a direct response to the rising numbers of people I am seeing in my clinic dealing with burnout, heightened anxiety, relentless stress, and sleep issues,” explains de Belgeonne. “They need an antidote to our modern hypervigilant world, and The Soothe Retreats are about soothing the put-upon nervous system and building resilience for tough times. The themed week will progressively build your practice and understanding.
