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 hugely successful retreats in 2018 and 2019, they are returning to Spain in September 2022 to run their third retreat. (Unfortunately the planned retreats for 2020 and 2021 were postponed due to COVID-19.) 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:-
