Lord Howe Island
Wellness Week at Pinetrees
Looking for a blissful week of ocean, fitness, divine foods and delicious wines? We’ve found it and it looks like this…
Restricted to only 400 visitors at one time, Lord Howe Island is truly one of the most beautifully serene getaways in the world.
With numerous beaches, countless walking tracks and no phone or internet reception, a week on Lord Howe Island really does allow you to switch off from the outside world and re-connect with yourself and with nature.
Thanks to the initiatives of Luke and Dani, the energetic owners of Pinetrees (www.pinetrees.com.au), this haven is being discovered by a younger generation of adventure seekers and wellness enthusiasts.
The inaugural Wellness Week at Pinetrees kicked off in 2012 – these have been so popular that Luke and Dani now run 4 Wellness Weeks each year. The week has something for everyone and activities include:
- Twice daily yoga sessions with Charlotte Dodson (charlottedodsontv.com) – Charlotte counts Miranda Kerr, Lara Bingle and Gerard Butler as her clients and is truly a world class yoga teacher. After a week of Charlotte’s strong and playful classes you'll be sure to feel open and strengthened and inspired to pursue your practice back in civilization.
- Daily organised fitness activities ranging from ocean swims and snorkelling trips to hikes around the island – these are optional but provide a great way of seeing the island without having to organise a thing yourself!
- Daily ‘wholefoods’ cooking classes with plenty of tips to take home.
- Wine tasting evenings.
- Three meals daily, each with plenty of healthy wholefoods options and optional dessert at dinner – Beware though, the dessert here is so delicious that you may find it very difficult to go without!
The itinerary for each day is circulated at breakfast and planned out to make the best of the weather conditions for the week.
The best part is that you feel relaxed from the moment that Dani greets you on the tarmac and after a week you leave the island truly rejuvenated and inspired.
