Restore Mind, Body And Soul At The New Equinox Wilderness Retreat

Restore mind, body and soul at the new Equinox Wilderness Retreat

We can already feel the crispness of fall seeping back into the summer air, and with that comes the reminder that it’s time to put away our sunhats and sunblock and really get back to work. But before heading back into the drudgery of cold nights and long workdays, all of us at Your Coffee Break think you deserve to plan one last hoorah. It’s time to celebrate the end of the season and welcome in a new one, and what better way to do that than with a relaxing, invigorating, fun retreat?

Tucked away in a quintessential English setting, the new Equinox Wilderness Retreat is just the place to go to restore your mind, body, and soul.

During a three-night stay in one of England’s premiere countrysides, you will have the opportunity to join Equinox, the high performance fitness and lifestyle leader for a stimulating, invigorating weekend. Equinox, a lifestyle brand that focuses on service, value, and results, operates 73 upscale, full-service clubs all across the United States, as well as in London and Toronto. But for this one weekend, all of their services are coming straight to you.

You will stay at the Wilderness Reserve Georgian manor, Sibton Park, for a chance to retreat and revive. The twelve-bedroom Sibton Park is surrounded by hundreds of acres of landscaped park and ground, providing the perfect backdrop for a relaxing getaway.

During the stay, guests will enjoy exclusive Equinox programming including high-intensity interval training, yoga, boxing circuits and Pilates, and spa treatments from Equinox’s expert team. A welcome dinner will also be provided by award-winning head chef, Adam Simmonds, who will also set the menus for the rest of the retreat.

The retreat will kick off with a restorative yoga session and RX Series, and throughout the weekend, Equinox instructors will lead participants through other award-winning programs such as Whipped, Tabata, and MetCon3. Instructors will include FitPro’s 2014 fitness professional of the year, John Shehan, and world kickboxing champion, Alex Lawson. And did we mention that some of these classes will take place on a beautiful terrace overlooking the ground’s lake?

In between workouts and spa experiences, retreat-goers can choose to relax by the Wilderness Reserve’s naturally filtered pool or hot tub, play tennis, have afternoon tea or even attend a private film screening. There’s also an opportunity to talk with onsite specialists about the reserve’s wildlife, including a birdsong tour with ecologist Steve Piotrowski or a ‘Moth Breakfast’, where guests can learn about the hundreds of multi-colored moth species that inhabit the area. And if you need a refresher after a whole day of activities, you can indulge in a cold pressed juice by Plenish, which will leave you feeling satisfied and healthy.

So if you’re looking for that perfect end to your summer vacation, and you happen to be free September 25-28, consider indulging in a well-deserved weekend away. If you’re interested in reserving a spot at this three-night getaway experience, email or call 020 7292 6377 for more information. Then get ready to end summer in style!
