This month marks the beginning of the high season on Mallorca, and with longer days and mild temperatures it’s one of our favourite months. Here’s Nourish’s wellbeing round up for April.
On April 14th head towards the centre of the island to Porreres in the agricultural region of Es Pla for the Feria Agrícola Orgánica – Mallorca’s ecological fair. Here you can find an abundance of ecological and organic delights such as cosmetics and food, as well as agricultural equipment and renewable energy systems.
Now is the perfect time of year for hiking before the temperatures start to soar in the coming months. One of our favourite springtime hikes is the circular route from Cala Estreta near Arta in the northeast. This track gives you the benefit of both mountain and jaw dropping coastal views, and you can often even see Menorca in the distance. Stop for a picnic at one of the deserted coves or white sand beaches along the path, then carry on past the 16th century watch tower, Torre d’Albarca, and continue along the coast back to the beginning. The whole trek is about 9km and takes around 3.5 hours start to finish.
For more family fun that will get the body moving try the new Family Class at Choi Kwang Do Mallorca every Saturday morning from 9 March. If you haven’t heard, Choi Kwang Do is the increasingly popular martial art suitable for young and old, and a wonderful way to bond with your child with a common goal and interest. As an added bonus mention Nourish to get your first taster class for free, as well as a full dobok (suit) for free! Book your spot by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
All these endorphins are great, but after slogging it out perhaps some more restorative activities are in order. We love to have regular bodywork sessions with Tahona at Tahona Santana – Holistic Bodywork & Massage Therapy. Whether you have emotional trauma, an injury, or other physical symptom such as migraines or digestive issues, Tahona will introduce you to the effectiveness of the Grinberg Method as a means of transformation and healing. Feel the shift as you let go of old patterns and trauma somatised in the body. We highly recommend experiencing one of her beautifully therapeutic massages too!

If chronic pain is something you’ve been dealing with then let us introduce you to Petro Kohut, certified Rolfer at Lucky Bodies and Happy Souls in Santa Catalina. The practice of Rolfing is a holistic system of bodywork, manipulating the soft tissue (muscles and fascia), and inviting and awakening new movement capacities to effectively realign the body’s structure. Rolfing releases and balances tensions, freeing up the body’s energy to heal effectively. After experiencing Rolfing from Petro first hand we can attest to its extraordinary results!
