This workshop is perfect for those looking to re-energise both body and mind but with limited time availability or perhaps wanting to sample what we offer on a longer multi-day retreat.
Based in the UK’s only coastal National Park, we have the privilege to offer breathtaking landscapes and oceans, providing a perfect setting for an inspiring immersive experience.
In this interactive workshop we'll explore core concepts that promote physical and mental health alongside the fundamentals of human movement such as running, crawling, lifting and throwing. We’ll explore practical life skills, field craft techniques and learning methods for self sufficiency including the four principles of survival: shelter, warmth, water & food to increase confidence and self sufficiency in all manner of environments.
The itinerary is designed to invigorate and rejuvenate, whilst also being mindful of rest and recovery.
During the day we will also look at how a deeper connection with the natural world can enhance our health and vitality. This will include an understanding of Biophilia - our ingrained connection with other living things - and how we can promote this on a daily basis.
Everyone is different so we look to provide a tailored experience for each person who joins us, taking into account personal goals and fitness ability. We deliberately limit group size so that our coaches can provide personal guidance and assistance throughout the day, as required.
The day will be lead by Meadow co-owner and Health Coach Nick, alongside former Paratrooper and outdoor expert Ryan.
Participants will be asked to complete a health PARQ form before attending the workshop plus sign a disclaimer consenting to taking responsibility for their own wellbeing during the course.
