A retreat with a difference! Introducing a NEW weight loss programme exclusive to Grayshott.
Grayshott Spa 'Vital Health' Retreat - 6 nights all inclusive stay & treatments from £1705pp. 'Favourite UK Spa Retreat', Conde Nast Traveller Readers. 'Best UK Spa', Tatler Award Winner. Zest Magazine Spa Awards 2010.

Next Vital Health - Weight Management Retreat will run 16th - 22nd January 2011

At last, a retreat with a difference. Just when we are almost bored to tears with yet another of the detox 'lose 10 pounds in 2 days', and all the other assurances that come along with destination spas promising the world, the new retreat has arrived!

Grayshott Spa has teamed up with leading nutritionist Vicki Edgson to create the 'Vital Health - Weight Management' seven-day retreat. Recognising that the twenty-first century disease is fatigue, Vicki addresses the tie-in between lack of energy, unnecessary weight gain, and subsequent obesity. "It's not that people are lazy, it's more often that they are doing too much and, in order to keep going they eat too many of the wrong things, often at the wrong times of day," says Vicki.

Set in Grayshott's beautiful surroundings, Vicki has worked closely with the experienced spa and fitness teams, to create an unusual but exciting combination of outdoor exercise, and a selection of indoor relaxation modalities. This maximises the important cardiovascular work needed to boost energy and maintain trim bodies; balanced with T'ai Chi, yoga, and Qi Gung as ways of calming the nervous system, in preparation for a decent night's sleep - something which is so elusive to many of us.

Throughout the six night, seven day stay guests will experience workshops, master-classes and one-to-one consultations with Vicki, on nutrition fundamentals that everyone should have as part of their health toolbox. With fifteen years experience under her belt, Vicki brings the whole topic of food and nutrition to life, motivating you to change your eating habits for the better, in some surprisingly simple ways. With Grayshott's existing Healthy Eating Programme, Vicki guides you through the benefits of each meal, and sends you home with all the information you need to replicate this for you and your family.

All inclusive from £1705 per person for six nights (based on a Classic Double Room) including a carefully selected package of spa treatments to support invigoration, increased metabolism, energy and weight loss, this is a new style of retreat that should not be missed.
