Restival - Reconnect To Life
RESTIVAL IS THE BEAUTIFUL LOVECHILD OF A RETREAT AND A FESTIVAL. A DESERT WELLNESS AND YOGA RETREAT INSPIRED BY THE ANCIENT TRIBES OF THE COUNTRY HELD DEEP IN NATURE, DESIGNED FOR YOU TO DISCONNECT & RECONNECT.
When asked to visualise a great journey you’ve never experienced before, it takes imaginative power and even then it turns out different to how you pictured. So really, words cannot capture the time you’ll have at Restival because it’s so special. Like happiness, calm, good health, success, becoming part of the Restival movement is something you own and something unique. It’s a feeling, and we’d love you to feel it.

ARIZONA SEPTEMBER 2016
Our mission at Restival Arizona is to respect and stay true to the Navajo way and we feel privileged to access a rare glimpse into ancient traditions, including Navajo Sweat Lodges, Storytelling, Ceremonies, Mask Making, Navajo Astronomy, discovering your life purpose with Songbird Grandmother and Medicine Wheel Workshops. Far from being simply a yoga retreat in Arizona (nonetheless included twice daily), a complete wellness package is major part of Restival’s experience. You’ll digital detox in our Arizona luxury desert camp and return home re-calibrated from a healthy adventure with a new set of friends.
The Harvest Moon falls on the 16th September, a beautiful way to bring Restival 2016 to a close where we honor the Navajo farmers’ harvest.

CLICK HERE TO DISCOVER THE DESERT LIFE OF THE BERBER NOMADS
Following the extraordinary success of Restival Morocco last November 2015, we are delighted to host another Restival adventure, deep in the Saharan dunes, together with our beautiful friends, the Berber Nomads. This is a true Sahara Desert retreat, we detox from our devices, practice yoga, paint, write stories and dance around the campfire at night time in our Morocco desert camp beneath the Milky Way which is astonishing. An astronomer is on hand to explain some of it to you. Spaces are limited as Restival is an exclusive getaway and spaces will fill up so be swift!
Why The World Needs a Restival
The urban population in 2014 was a whopping 54% of the total global population, up from 34% in 1960, and continues to grow. It is estimated that by 2017, a majority of people will be living in urban areas.
Maybe you felt uninspired , uncreative, or in general feeling like your gusto for life has gone down? At Restival you reconnect from a diverse collection of people from all over the world, solo travellers are especially welcomed.
“It is time that we recognize your history and that we protect your indigenous lands from corporate interests and people that are out there to exploit them, it is time that we heard your voice and protected this planet for future generations.” Leonardo di Caprio
We are on the precipice of a middle class nervous breakdown with an addiction to technological devices growing day by day. Every time you reach for your phone (which on average is 85 times a day) you get a hit of serotonin in your brain, but it may not be good news so it’s causing us to stress out. It’s time to look up.
Fest & Rest
“We are in the midst of a sleep deprivation crisis, and this has profound consequences – on our health, our job performance, our relationships and our happiness. What is needed, is nothing short of a sleep revolution. Only by renewing our relationship with sleep can we take back control of our lives.” Arianna Huffington
“We live in a wonderful world full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open”

LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCES
It was the most magnificent celebration of life, love and creativity set out in our natural world at its rawest.
Claire Hewitt, Restival Morocco
“We used words to describe our feelings instead of relying on a photo or emjoi to do the talking for us. We rediscovered how to get to know one another through the art of conversation, without any digital distraction. I got to know myself better and think about something lasting, something needed both for myself and for those I love.

The Restival experience helped me to review my priorities – not in what I ‘did’ but in how I felt about the things I did. I have since set to work to address my personal and professional anxiety in a way that instead of, as I expected, would drive me to do less, has enabled me to do much more. I went to Restival primarily to escape the light and sound pollution of my London life. While I was there I thought I’d dabble in a bit of yoga, meditation, creative writing and talking with strangers. Since my return, I’ve realised the parts of my work I have passion for and now get to spend much more time pursuing them. I can’t recommend the experience highly enough to anyone looking to run away to come home. The beautiful photograph of the Restivallers atop a dune (that’s me – 9th in from the left!) is my longest serving screensaver.

IGNITE YOUR CURIOSITY FOR UNIQUE EXPERIENCES
Restival News25th Aug
On a sunny Saturday morning in August, about 40 guests were excited to find ourselves the rooftop of Shoreditch House, launching our inaugural ‘Rooftop Restival’ to an intimate cohort of 30 guests, all ready to start the weekend with some rest and relaxation overlooking the City. What a wonderful way to start the weekend, after a week jam-packed with work (probably in the city)? Our two hour ‘retreat’ was for Shoreditch House members to disconnect through a carefully curated series of practices that we call Restival.
Restival News9th Aug
“How can I become intuitive?” is a question I am often asked by my clients. It’s a great question but here’s the thing. We are actually all naturally intuitive. You don’t need to learn to ‘become’ intuitive because you already ‘are’ intuitive. Intuition – your sixth sense, your gut, your inner compass – whatever you want to call it, is something inherent in each and every one of us and it is an invaluable resource for making decisions, problem solving, giving us direction and gaining clarity.
