The word Artah translates as purpose or essence in Hindu philosophy. As a broader concept, it refers to the activities and resources that enable an individual to be in their desired state, and since the state of your health determines the way you live your life, Artah was created to embody this notion. To allow individuals to be happier, healthier, and achieve more through the creation of optimal health.
Artah was founded by Rhian Stephenson - Nutritionist, Naturopath and CEO of Psycle London. Born out of her passion for health and energy, Rhian’s vision was to create a sanctuary where people could nourish the body, clear the mind and uncover a new level of health. Combining over a decade of clinical experience with her wealth of knowledge from the fitness world, Artah is a modern retreat that provides guests with a challenging, invigorating experience that is truly transformative.
Our method is grounded in four founding pillars which integrate naturopathic principles, functional fitness and therapeutic nutrition to create effective, results based programs that will transform your state of health.
The food you eat can change your life. It influences your mood, your energy, and thus the attitude you bring to every experience you have. We’re passionate about food that is not only good for you but tastes amazing and makes you feel good – so everything we serve is designed with that in mind. Free from toxins, hormone disruptors and common allergens, our nourishing menu will restore your body from the inside out.
Physical exercise is fundamental to good health which is why it’s an essential part of each program. We take a 360 degree approach to fitness and have created a programme that blends both high intensity and restorative movement. Through a mixture of yoga, hiking, and functional movement, our exercise programmes are designed to activate your metabolism whilst creating stability, awareness and strength.
Set in the foothills of the Pyrenees and surrounded by some of the most beautiful hiking trails in the world, our retreat is the perfect place for you to connect with the environment, the people around you and most importantly with yourself. Free from distraction, the estate harnesses the power of nature to facilitate your transformation and truly give you the space to focus on your health. Our program is simple but effective, and will give you a deep appreciation for the power of your body, your mind and your health.
The body has an innate ability to heal itself, and our programmes are set up to stimulate your natural process of regeneration. Daily exercise stimulates your metabolism and tones your body, while mindful eating, restorative exercise and massage therapy restore your nervous system and allow you to reset. Our combination of naturopathic medicine and nutritional therapy focus on gut health and promote digestion. Over the week, this immersive regime allows you to rid the body of accumulated waste, repair cellular damage and restore your natural ability to detoxify.
