ReikiCannes Wellbeing Retreats on the French Riviera

The Mind Body and Soul Coach Kathy and French restaurateur Robert believe that good health and good food go hand in hand...  When two professionals met, each with 30 years of experience in the holistic fitness and restaurant catering industries, it was a match that eventually made this heavenly dream come true.  At a Mind Body And Soul Wellbeing Retreat, my clients can relax, rejuvenate and explore the beautiful French Riviera.  The ReikiCannes experience is a mixture of French home comforts with a touch of luxury and a tailored programme of life-changing, often mind-boggling wellbeing sessions to suit you, "chez Robert and Kathy".

Personal Fitness and dietary guidance

If you want to incorporate fitness into your visit, I specialise in the over-40s although my London clients range from 16 years to 70's.  Exercise is for everyone at any age.  Whether you're a gym bunny, yoga or Pilates regular, elite sportsperson or scared of gyms and a health industry that looks to primarily cater for 20-somethings - I offer you an opportunity to zone in on what you want and need.

That's why a session with Kathy Yvanovich could combat fears, give you the inner confidence and motivation you need and before you know it, you'll feel much better.  You might want tailored sessions for a special occasion, or are recovering from an injury, or learn safe exercises for a painful back whilst pregnant, or simply keep up with your exercise regime. It's all about what you need for your mind, body and soul wellbeing.

We have a good exercise bike, Swiss ball, as well as the saltwater pool and bodyweight exercises on the grass or decking.  If you believe in being fit in healthy and natural ways, you'll also benefit from dietary and healthy lifestyle advice and adaptations, grounding and stress management for a better future.  

My holistic teaching style includes flexibility, stretch, balance, exercise to music, Zumba, step, rebounder, yoga and Pilates exercises, kick-boxing, HIIT (high-intensity interval training), circuits, Swiss ball, chi ball, bands and weights and some sport-specific training, visualisation, stress-relieving mindfulness, meditation and grounding techniques.   

Emerge feeling fitter, flexible, strong, balanced, connected and whole.
