I met Air during my training trips to Samui where I normally do a lot of Muay Thai, cycling and swimming. She provided me with a lot of valuable tips on where to cycle, where to get good massages, eat well and where to buy food.
Her knowledge and care for the well being of others was the reason why I decided to spend my next holiday at New Leaf Detox. Not because I wanted to lose weight, not because I wanted to quit smoking or drinking. But as a fairly sporty person, I felt I needed a time-out to clean myself from all the training, the bad air in Hong Kong, the (sometimes) bad quality of the food, when you eat outside and cannot choose the location and just to relax my body and mind.
To be honest I was a bit worried in advance that I would be bored or restless because I am so used to being active.
With mixed feelings I arrived and checked into my bungalow, which was far better than what I had normally stayed in during my holidays on Samui and I instantly felt like home.
The whole week I was beeing taken care of perfectly. The team was always around, had time to talk to everybody and we had some great discussions about sports and nutrition, where I learnt a lot from the tremendous knowledge of the team.
I did not get bored at all, there were plenty of activities to choose from during the day. My most favourite one was the ball balance yoga, which I was eagerly waiting for every day.
I also had a great time with all the other guests, having chats on our walks along the beach, sharing Muay Thai lessons together or just sitting in the "living room" together.
The juices, smoothies and soups were just delicious, all fresh, and nutrious, wonderful combinations.
All in all, a fantastic experience, not only if you want to lose weight but also if you just want to treat yourself.
Thanks you, Team New Leaf, I will be back for sure.
