A reset and rejuvenate weekend wellness retreat dedicated purely to your health and happiness. Picture yourself, waking up to the stunning view of the incredible azul of the Mediterranean sea in one direction and the hills of the Pyrenees in the other, starting your day with an invigorating morning vinyasa flow yoga class by the pool, followed by a guided mindfulness meditation, and an energising, healthy, organic and seriously delicious vegan breakfast made from local produce and lots of love by our fantastic chef, Lucy of The Wild Beets.
Escaping the dirtiness and craziness of the city, totally slowing down, and enjoying the smell of fresh country air, completely de-stressing and fully letting go of life’s day to day madness.
Spending your days in the grounds of a beautiful 15th century Spanish farmhouse, which was once a vineyard, soaking up the warm Spanish sun, laying by the pool, exploring the local nature hikes or opting for an add-on deeply relaxing and therapeutic massage to melt away any last tensions.
Being totally taken care of with no worries, nowhere to be and nothing to plan. Along with the yoga, pranayama, amazing meditation and practical mindfulness techniques you will learn, you will leave this weekend feeling amazing in body and mind and with sustainable lifestyle techniques and tools to enhance your life and your happiness.
You will be staying at a newly refurbished beautiful 15th century farmhouse or ‘Masia’ only 45 minutes North of Barcelona near the beautiful Costa Brava. Which was once a vineyard boasts stunning views of both the deep blue of the Mediterranean Sea as well as the green hills of the Pyrenees.

Gillian’s yoga journey began 15 years ago, learning Ashtanga Yoga in the South of France while working on yachts. From practicing various styles of yoga all over the world, she decided to complete her YTT200 in Bali August 2016 to learn and share my passion with others.
She understands what it takes to provide a luxury service that guests want as well are able to anticipate the needs of their guests well in advance after spending many years adapting to the crazy demands of the wealthy superyacht owners!

What past guests have said
”The 2-3 mornings of the week I had yoga lessons with Gill were the most productive days of my week. Not only did I feel energised (bendy) but also empowered and positive. Gill is wonderfully calm and patient and with incredible ease, guided up through poses, some which I didn’t even realise I could do. I look forward to returning to Barcelona so that I can continue practising and progressing with my yoga with Gill’s guidance and support.” Sarah Green
”Gill has introduced me to the gift of yoga, and as an active woman I am pleasantly surprised at what is has offered my body as much as it has my mind and soul and fortunately it is only the beginning.” Shervon Harrison
”Reset + Connect has truly opened my eyes to all the wonderful benefits of yoga and mindfulness. The combination of these two makes me feel calm, peaceful and light in a way I have never experienced before. Kasia and Gillian are amazing teachers. I will recommend Reset + Connect to everyone looking for a break to tune into their body and mind guided by excellent yoga and mindfulness teachers. (not to mention the great opportunity to meet new people and share a glass of bubbles afterwards.” Marlene Larssen

How to get here
Barrio Oradella 21
Sant Iscle de Vallalta
From Barcelona airport you get the train to Barcelona Sants or take the bus to Placa Catalunya. From Barcelona Sants + Placa Catalunya Train Stations you take the Rodalies train R1 towards BLANES (blue R1). There is no fast train to Arenys de Mar – the train takes around 1 hour or less depending which station you get it from. We will pick you up at Arenys de Mar Station. We can also pick up from Sant Pol de Mar if you happen to be spending the day there.
If you are arriving by car, please send me a personal message for instructions on how to get there. The 1km private road leading to property is quite bumpy for irrigation purposes and not ideal for low vans/cars.
Send your request to the bookings team who will get back to you within 24 hours or email us directly on email@example.com.
