In 2018 Anya and her friend and peer Rebecca Maslin, were offered an opportunity to set up and run a fitness retreat at the beautiful Finca Avedin in Andalusia in Spain. After a lot of research, they discovered that there was a real gap in the market for a fitness retreat that involved tough workouts and glorious hikes in nature but also relaxing and unwinding with delicious food and a glass of wine in a stunning setting. So together they created Workout & Wine Down Retreats.
After a hugely successful retreat in September 2018, they are returning to Spain in September 2019 to run another sold out retreat. They are also in the process of organising a Workout & Wine Down Retreat in the UK.
Here is an example of what a day on one of our retreats entails:-
