It is the synergy between looking after your body, your brain and your spirit that makes up your vitality.
An intimate and holistic journey immersing guests in our philosophy, to fuel their vitality. Meditation and breathwork, sunset sound healing, sunrise yoga, and one-on-one appointments of product protocols prescribed by Adrian, uplifted, inspired and ignited guests on their journey to discover their highest self.

Hosted by Adrian and Gary.
“A form of massage used to drain the lymphatic system of the body; to drain lymph fluid is to dissipate inflammation. If any of our lymph nodes are blocked, we generally see inflammation in the form of pain, tenderness, discomfort, immobility and many other ways. If toxic fluid does not drain away efficiently, we are left with a swamp-like scenario within our tissues. Not the prettiest picture.”
