Pädaste Self Care Weekend in June

3 June until 4 June 2023
Pädaste Manor on Muhu Island, Estonia

The Pädaste Self Care Weekends is one in a series of retreats in the Corpus+Spiritum philosophy by Pädaste Manor

Yoga, meditation and a quiet journey on the Pädaste estate provide a gentle start to the day activities, while afternoon is devoted to breathing session which will end with sauna ritual. Sustenance comes in the form of balanced meals prepared by the hotel’s Chef de Cuisine famed for the estate’s pure and locally sourced Nordic Islands’ Cuisine.

Meeli Laidvee, a creative and dedicated host with a unique handwriting, will be your companion on this journey, supported by Pädaste's wellness experts.

During the two days, participants will reconnect to nature, sweat out toxins, sharpen their senses and regain a conscious presence. The sense of shared achievement nourished among the group is no small part of the retreat’s appeal and the lasting impression it leaves.


The retreat programme has been created especially for the Pädaste Self Care Weekend by Meeli Laidvee together with Pädaste Manor Spa therapist.
