Juicy Detox Retreat - Guest feedback

I'm just back from having spent a fabulous weekend at a Juice, Yoga and Exercise Retreat in the Scottish Highlands!
The weekend was hosted by Lisa Lawson, a life coach, personal trainer & passionate about nutrition and healthy lifestyle.
We stayed in Glenfeshie House set in a wooded forest with views over the Feshie River and mountains opposite . The location was perfect for a totally relaxed , peaceful and escape from your normal, real life setting.

Over the weekend we were fed nothing but supercharged juices, shots and supplments in an array of vibrant colours.
I loved them all and was surprised that I didn't even feel hungry!

We started each morning off with some quiet meditation, followed by an energising yoga session. We then had 2 beautiful walks in the surrounding area, taking in the Uath lochans - fabulous views, and walking alongside the Feshie River. We were lucky enough 
to see deer, Highland cattle and even heard a cuckoo!

On returning to the house we had a high energy exercise session followed by a lovely deep relax session (sunbathing!) More exercise and yoga in the
afternoon including a juice demonstration and informative talk about healthy food options.

In the evening we watched juicing and lifestlye documentaries which were highly informative. It has really opened my eyes to changes I can make with
my own nutrition and exercise plans. 

Added to that I have met some lovely new ladies who I hope will be friends for life!
All in all, a fabulous weekend. I left feeling fabulous -  re-energised, relaxed and glowing with a 'Juicy high' as Lisa calls it!!
I will certainly re-visit when I feel I need another kick up the backside to get my nutrition, exercise and stress levels back under control!

Note from Great North Lodges: for further information about Glenfeshie House or our other properties, check out our home page or call us on 01479 812266. For further information about Detox weekends contact Lisa Lawson on 07969 442103.
