Prices from €1700
Are you overwhelmed with fear and anxiety?
Is stress taking over your career, personal relationships and health?
When was the last time you felt happy and joyful?
Unmanaged stress and burnout is your body telling you enough is enough.
Your body is exhausted. Your adrenals are frazzled and your nervous system is constantly overactive.
This is not normal (or healthy) and if left untreated, can have detrimental effects on your mind, body and spirit.
We created The Unplug Retreat as the perfect antitode.

With plenty of private time and use of beautiful luxurious facilities we are 100% sure that you will have everything you need to relax, rejuvenate and restore.
Take your recovery seriously
The cost of leaving burnout unaddressed far outweighs the cost of seeking help and recovery. Stress and burnout, if left untreated, can become detrimental to your health and have irreversible effects on the body and mind, including depression, heart disease and increased risk of having a stroke. We wholeheartedly believe that burnout should be treated as soon as possible so that you can get your life back.
Nourish your body
During burnout and stress, your body becomes depleted of vital nutrients and minerals. Your adrenal glands are exhausted and need a reboot, your nervous system is on high alert therefore throughout the retreat we will be boosting your system with lovingly made organic nutritious food and supplements that will work on replenishing your body and mind.
Forget trial and error and learn effective tools to ignite your recovery
Save yourself months and even years of time, energy and money. During the retreat, you will be provided with effective instant self healing techniques to deal with stress on a day-to-day basis. These tools are easy to use and you can integrate them into your life after the retreat, to make sure your healing journey continues well after you leave us.
Be part of a supportive community
Burnout and stress can leave you feeling alone, depleted, anxious, depressed and it can be difficult to relate to other people. The Unplug retreat is a perfect opportunity to meet others in the same boat. We feel that one of the most valuable parts of coming on our retreat is the supportive community we are committed to creating. Our guests are encouraged to share their experience, and we will create a safe, like-minded, intelligent and capable community of friends both during and after the retreat.
We will take care of you
There are few things more frightening than facing burnout alone, especially when everyone around you seems to have it all together. We believe in the importance of having practical steps to carry on your recovery journey well beyond the retreat with us. We are delighted to offer a coaching session to support you after the retreat.
We are in this together!

WHO ARE WE?
We are Amelia and Ellen, the happy and proud founders of The Unplug Retreat- our collective dream come true.
In 2015, we both walked the (terrifying!) trenches of burnout and now it is our mission to share the tools and wisdom that brought us back to life.
Ellen was a master juggler. As well as a full time job working for a successful risk management company, she also managed numerous creative projects as a journalist, including writing a book! Ellen knew it was time for a big change when she was diagnosed with PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) and burnout.
Amelia was the ´yes´ girl. Known as Ms Bond by her clients, she spent years making the impossible, possible for her clients who included royalty, successful business people and celebrities. At the peak of her career Amelia owned a business which she then had to resign from due to unmanaged stress and burnout.
We understand how it feels to be excelling in your career but then to have the rug pulled from under you by your own health. It is devastating but can also be the beginning of something truly wonderful if you get the right support.
Facing burnout can be extremely daunting, especially when there is so much advice on the internet... it is a jungle out there! We have spent years researching the most effective healing and therapeutic methods for recovery. Sometimes the road has been smooth, sometimes it has lead us to a dead end... Ellen once saw a psychologist who had to look up the term 'burnout' in a medical journal!
During The Unplug Retreat we will be delighted to share with you all that we know (that really works!) from the fields of mindfulness, yoga, nutrition, body and energy work, psychology and personal development.
This is how we transformed our own lives from fear and stress to joy and abundance, and now we can't wait for you to experience that too!
Join us at The Unplug Retreat where you can begin your healing journey in a safe, nurturing, supportive and luxurious space.
We can’t wait to meet you!

FREQENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I feel too low and tired to get to Spain but I want to come, what do you suggest?
We know how you feel. Once you get to Almeria (which is a short flight from the UK), you will be met by one of our lovely team and then your work is done. We will hand hold you through the entire week and you will not need to lift a finger. The benefits you will get from having a week of deep relaxation, healing and nourishing food will be so profound, we are sure you will leave feeling like a new person.
Will I really feel better after just one week?
Categorically yes! Even if you went to one yoga nidra class you would feel the benefits. We have both witnessed profound transformations even after 2 days.
Do you have to be good at yoga?
Not at all, you can be a complete beginner. This yoga is gentle and therapeutic. you will mostly feel like falling asleep you will be so relaxed.
The schedule seems very busy, will I get some private time?
We highly value time to integrate and we know how important it is for your own time so we have created a program that is balanced and gives plenty of private time. We encourage you to rest as much as possible.
I have many food allergies, can you still cater for me?
Yes absolutely, we have a dedicated kitchen team who are trained to deal with all food requirements.
Is there opportunity to see the local area?
