The Glass House Retreat
An invitation to Essex – The Glass House Retreat is the new kid on the block in the county's health and wellness scene
There are so many reasons to love Essex. Apart from the face that OM magazine originates from this beautiful county (and any popular or notorious shows that you may have seen on television), it's also home to the splendid new Glass House Retreat.
Now one of the UK's leading wellness and detox destinations, it houses some of the county's top wellness talent – from trainers and therapists to the fabulously talented head chief, Miguel Gouveia and his team, who create incredible healthy vegan, great-tasting menus.
The meditation pod outside is a must, and there's a new yoga studio that's just been built, so plenty of options and choices here for the soul seeker. You'll also find special themed retreat weekends, such as a Skincare Retreat and the Wim Hof Method Weekend, so there's always lots going on.
Aside from dedicated programmes for fitness, weight loss, detox and general health and wellbeing, you'll also enjoy the exquisite spa, indoor pool, sauna, steam, fitness classes and outdoor natural swimming pond – everything you need to leave with a spring in your step this spring!
First published in November 2009, OM Yoga magazine has become the most popular yoga title in the UK. Available from all major supermarkets, independents and newsstands across the UK. Also available on all digital platforms.
