São Tomé & Principe
The title of the program says it all. Live in the now and focus on the true YOU.
Back to Basic
The title of the program says it all. Due to the hectic of everyday life, there is less opportunity to relax and see the value in the simple things that don’t matter in the end.
Our Back to Basic program offers you a unique experience where you can become one with yourself. Instead of being concerned with complicated details, you will focus on the more important things; relaxation and peace within yourself. Back to Basic will make an urgent appeal to you for living in the present. Realize that life is less complicated than you think, and that you can find happiness and peace in very simple and small things.
It’s a journey where you can relax and refuel. During this unique and fully catered retreat, there is enough free time to do what feels good for you. In addition to massages, meditation, and yoga, there is time to discover and develop yourself through nature walks, reading books, individual therapy sessions and enjoying the São Tomean culture.
RELAX AND RENEW
The Back to Basic adventure takes place in São Tomé & Principe, an island located in Africa. This program is extra special by the fact that São Tomé & Principe is near the equator. A journey filled with blue water, beautiful nature and exotic cultures. Consuming natural products offered by this island allows you to detox your body and soul. As part of this trip, we will be focusing on yoga, meditation, and especially self-reflection.
