Activities

Here, they encourage activity and exercise options that reflect human function. Our recommendation is to focus on the essential movement patterns needed for life. Through various modalities we encourage resistance training. This helps the body to perform a combination of stability, functional movement, balance, core strength, and flexibility movements. We also consider the whole body’s system and ensure that each program offers a balance to regulate hormones. Our activities aim to reduce any overload on the adrenal system that may compound pre existing stress related symptoms, making our program ideal to assist in the management of lifestyle stress.

 

Cuisine

Fresh, local organic with much of the produce harvested from the on site gardens and orchard. Gwinganna cuisine enjoys a clean and pure journey from preparation to plate. With attention to individual needs, perfectly balanced nutrition ensures the required nourishment is provided to the body for energy and vitality.

Meals at Gwinganna are designed specifically to help support and improve digestion and liver detoxification, reduce inflammation, improve gut bacteria and balance blood sugar levels. All ingredients focus on low human intervention food (LHI) where the food has undergone minimal or no changes from its place in nature to create an ideal balance between macro and micronutrients. This allows your body’s biochemistry to convert food into what it needs for optimum health and prevention of major lifestyle diseases.

Gwinganna allows you to re-evaluate your relationship with food and learn about the meaning of true nourishment. We encourage you to eat mindfully, which means to slow down, be in the moment and be truly aware of the food you are eating and the impact it has on your health and wellbeing.
