Sport, health & well-being

A healthy mind in a healthy body. Our modern, sedentary life, often behind a computer, needs a release of tension to regain well-being. Regular physical activity is essential for a balanced mind and body. Depending on the retreats and the teachers, certain sports and wellness activities will be offered to the participants. In addition, learning and sharing workshops can be set up to engage personal development.

The setting of Bab Zouina lends itself perfectly to all kinds of physical exercises indoor or in the open air (fitness, Pilates, yoga, aerobics, walks and hikes, dancing, swimming, tennis, bowls game, table tennis, etc.). For well-being, activities vary from Thai massages, hammam, shiatsu massage, meditation sessions, naturopathy sessions, ayurveda, cooking workshops. Bab Zouina has a traditional hammam where you can relax in a calm and cosy atmosphere; our therapists offer a hammam and special scrubing with aromatic herbs from our garden.

Food is also central to good health. “You are what you eat”. At Bab Zouina, healthy eating is a priority. Organic vegetables from our own garden, local produce and our chef’s love of cooking are the main ingredients of every meal.
