The Root

THE ROOT

A transformational experience, designed to bring out your full potential

Nature was always man’s playground and The Root brings you back to our origins. The program is designed to let you reconnect to yourself, while empowering you to find your inner and outer strength to conquer any pick. Our aim is to set the conditions to transform you body, mind and soul through a simple but effective program. We will start everyday with morning yoga, we will continue with hike in nature and we will end our day with fitness classes and massage. At the same time, our diet is really important and it is based on legumes and beans.

Each activity is specially designed to not only tone and balance your body, but to help you create a new awareness and relationship with yourself, your loved ones, and the world around you.

The program itself met its objectives 100%. I came out of this feeling rejuvenated, full of positive energy and a lot fitter. The trails were all at the right level of difficulty and got progressively challenging as the days went by, allowing our bodies to adjust.
The program's diet consisted of well prepared and thought of recipes that tasted amazing as well.
The "cherry on top" is how the results have stayed with me after my return home. My metabolism has been reset and is now much faster. I feel energetic to perform my daily tasks and look forward to exercise. 
I would recommend the Root to anybody wishing to get a fresh start both in body and in spirit and to see tangible results in a short period of time, irrespective of their current level of fitness. 
So, once again, a heartfelt THANK YOU! It has been a truly amazing experience!

The location was great, the hikes well planned and your team always on the ball. The hotel was very nice and cosy. 
The chef was amazing and set new dimension in vegetarian cooking!
“The Root” a truly unique, challenging and inspiring experience.
The venue was great, the organization excellent and the team of professional trainers was truly amazing.
A reviving, mind, sole and body reset. Haven’t felt so good for years!! Can’t wait for the next one!

The Root offered me an incredible opportunity to challenge myself both physically and mentally. On offer is a week of hiking, yoga and incredible food. The hikes are long and arduous, the yoga along with a daily massage soothes your aching muscles and the vegetarian food (I’m not vegetarian but it was amazing), offers a balanced AND really delicious opportunity to ‘cleanse’.

My 6 days at the Root, I left fitter, healthier and with a renewed sense of clarity/self. I highly recommend it for individuals who seek to kickstart a new beginning, I honestly have found it transforming.
