More information

A fascinating journey through nature to rediscover yourself. The Natural Retreat is a 5 day- 4nights Programme that will take place in Mas Salagros EcoResort & Ancient Baths, the first Bio-Hotel in Spain located just 20 minutes from Barcelona.

Our proposal with this Nature Retreat is to provide you with the opportunity to discover nature’s wisdom through different experiences which aim to improve our health and life balance: the use of botany, learning the body behavior through consistently designed exercise and how animals are a reflection of humans themselves.


Complete planning

Before your arrival

The journey starts before your arrive to the retreat. An advisor from Own Experiences will contact you to gather information about your lifestyle and the goals you pursue after completing the programme.

First day: Welcome

  • Upon arrival we will show you the accommodation for check-in. You will then meet the Retreat’s director whom will welcome you to the programme and explain the content of the different experiences through the five days. You will decide at this point the level of involvement you will apply to the retreat.
  • You will next enjoy the custom-made meal to your specific needs, cooked by the Retreat’s chef using exclusively organic produce.
  • After resting the meal, you will begin the programme with its first experience which consists in a “foot to ground” horse experience with an expert guide to explain the process.
  • Next is the spa session in the fabulous Arab Ancient baths of the Eco-Resort, followed by a session of developmental kinesiology (from Greek κίνησις kínēsis 'movement', and logos, 'treatise, study' - is the scientific study of the mechanism in Human movement, aimed to provide recovery through different therapies). We will study the evolution of your body system before beginning the physical tests.
  • You will have time to rest and relax. Dinner will be served following the diet plan designed upon arrival, and you will enjoy the freshly prepared local-organic produce by our chef.
  • When dinner is finished and each of the five evenings the team will give the participants a different surprise.

Second day: First contact with nature

  • Before breakfast you have a daily optional experience available, Yoga & Meditation. All participants are allowed regardless of their previous experience.
  • Breakfast will be served 8.30-9.30 am. You will enjoy a healthy and nourishing meal customized to enhance the whole day routine.
  • An expert Botanist guide will be in charge to lead a hike through the surrounding nature where you will learn the relationship we develop with the five elements in nature: balance, adaptation, efficiency, complexity and diversity.
  • Lunch will be an exciting moment of the day, as you will be guided by the gastro-botanist and the Resort’s chef into discover the healthiest cooking techniques, alongside with using the produced you gathered in the previous hike. You will by now learn the benefits both of cooking with these herbs and plants and also the improvements it can bring to your daily diet.

  • Breakfast will be at your disposal from 08:30 to 09:30 am.
  • Together with the former Duathlon World Champion, you will take an excursion through Nature. The aim behind this exercise is double: becoming entirely aware of your body and reactivating it in our day-to-day basis (in some cases we might need to overcome the barriers preventing us from practicing sport or to improve our performance as well as finding new motivations).
  • After this physical activity where you will learn the sports habits to progress your body status, you will have time to rest to be followed by lunch.
  • You will have time in the afternoon to relax and enjoy the fantastic Arab baths located in the Eco-Resort, and you will be provided with a full-body physiotherapeutic massage, according to the kinesiology test’s results.

From the safety provided with the guidance of an expert trainer and the dynamics called “foot to ground”, you will rediscover a series of aspects about yourself that will mostly amaze you.
