We’re delighted to share the date for WoW17 with you, October 28-Nov 4, 2017. It’s our 12th Week of Wellness and as usual the week will be brimming with good food and drink, healthy movement, pampering with a choice of holistic therapies, plus time to explore, be mindful or just chill out by the pool at the award-winning Son Ametler. Time to catchup with yourself or to escape life for a week, the choice is yours. This week in 2016 saw sunny days with temperatures in the 20s so we’ll be hoping for more of the same in 2017.
We have limited single rooms so do consider bringing a partner, friend or relative, and you’ll enjoy shared room discounts. And if you book and pay your deposit before Easter Saturday, you’ll also enjoy a £50 Earlybird Discount per person.

David Wolfe neatly summed the best six doctors for a happy and healthy human being. We’ve got them all nailed (and some) at our forthcoming WoW Mallorca retreat, where we still have a few spaces. A good friend thought David had missed one out though – “Connecting with great people. Connectivity is so important for mental and physical wellbeing.” We’d agree with that and clients each year testify that connecting with great people is a given at the wonderful surroundings at Son Ametler.
Are there other doctors you think contribute to your sense of wellbeing? We’d love to hear your thoughts.
Tomorrow is World Tai Chi and Qi Gong Day (WTCQD).
The idea is a simple one. At 10am local time, tai chi players across the globe will be doing their tai chi thing; in parks, beaches, woods, shopping malls, mountain tops, schools, gardens, offices, wherever! Starting in New Zealand it sends a tidal wave of positive, healing energy around our world and to all people.
In 2015, over 80 countries joined in. Expectations for this year are even higher.
I’ve celebrated this day once on Exeter’s Cathedral Green, where 50 or so players from different tai chi schools played together, and some bloke on a bike memorably rode by, shouting “weirdos!”. I remember laughing and thinking, “actually he was the odd one out!”
My favourite WTCQD venue remains up on the clifftop where we welcomed the sunrise over the sea at Branscombe beach.
You don’t need to be in an organised event. Wherever you are, and even if you’ve never taken a class, you can join in. At 10am, just stop and be still. Standing upright, comfortable and relaxed, feel the connection beneath your feet into the earth, and from the top of your head up to the cosmos. Take a few slow, deep breaths in and out, think good thoughts. Feel connected to your earth, your cosmos. Be part of that tidal wave of healing energy.
One World, One Breath.
Before we’d even made it home to the UK, we had 3 bookings for our 2016 Week of Wellness. Great forward planning! And the great news is that we’re holding the 2015 prices over to 2016. A WoW guest last week thought that it was “really excellent value for money”. It will be even more so in 2016 with that price freeze.
What a wonderful week we had. An intoxicating mix including a wonderful location, fabulous fresh food, energising and grounding tai chi, relaxing and soothing therapies, walks through beautiful and ancient landscapes, conversations and laughter with old and new friends, warmth on the skin, learning about ourselves and others, all contributed to the mix which ensures that guests truly feel they’ve enjoyed a balanced Week of Wellness with us. The wonderful team at Son Ametler looked after us so well yet again.
2015 was our 10th Year. We’ve learnt a lot about ourselves during that time and also learnt from the dozens of people who’ve come to Mallorca from different continents and trusted us with their wellbeing. If you’d like to join us for our 2016 Week of Wellness, check out what its all about, prices and get in touch. There’s limited availability!
We’re feeling like spring is finally showing signs of life, bunches of snowdrops, daffodil leaves pushing through, buds on trees, the orange and purple of crocuses hailing the promise of warmer weather and longer days. And feeling good about that, we’ve decided to extend the earlybird discount for our WoW Week of Wellness. Earlybird discounts will apply if you’ve booked and paid your deposit by the end of March.
And as for a bit of pampering, Jane is now offering not only reflexology but also indian head massage, Bach flower remedies, Bowen technique, Reiki, insights into mindfulness and all round wellbeing. Fabulous.
We’ve only 3 rooms still available so be decisive and get in touch to make that booking. You won’t be disappointed.
If you’re anything like me, your mind during the second half of January will have been full of invoices, receipts, diaries, creditors, travel claims and so forth, ie. completing and submitting your tax return. Only now might you be able to see the possibilities beyond the 31st January and start to give the better things in life some attention, like chilling in the pool with the sun on your skin!
And so with this in mind, we’re extending our earlybird discount for our WoW Week of Wellness through to the end of February, giving you a whole month to get your holiday plans in order, and book to join us for a treat of week of tai chi, holistic therapies, walks, chillout time, being mindful, good food and wine, laughter, lazing by the pool, exploring the local area and generally feeling fabulous by the end of it!
We’ve only 3 ensuite rooms left at the wonderful Son Ametler. Bring a friend and share the fun, save on the price. And with the earlybird discount extended til the end of February, each person saves £50 off the fee.
