The Explore'n'Restore retreats are designed for walkers who wish to experience a week of trekking in the mountains, among the most beautiful in the region, gradually building up the difficulty and working in parallel on stretching methods through the practice of Restorative Yoga.
At Lootraki, we walk, a lot! Over the past few years, as a result of walking the mountain trails, many paths have been discovered - all off the beaten track of mass tourism. The guesthouse now has a portfolio of more than 15 hikes, either starting from the house or only a few kilometres away, each one more breath-taking than the next! Each of the retreat's hikes is theme-based. You will learn to reconnect to nature by observing the geology, the sky, the landscape, the human occupation.
Because endurance and pleasure in hiking rely heavily on the ability to relax the muscles after the effort, this retreat has been designed to combine effort and recovery. 7 days of hiking followed by a 1.5 hour restorative yoga session where you will discover the joy of a muscle that stretches smoothly and lengthily, for a guaranteed night's sleep that follows!
Cherry on the cake, you will be offered a full body Thai massage before your departure to come back fully regenerated and relaxed home!
