Blue Zones - Longevity Retreat

Blue Zones - Longevity Retreat

A life-changing retreat inspired by the lifestyle and habits of the world’s longest-living people of the Blue Zones areas.
For a better, healthier and longer life.


This incredible blend of genuine food habits, natural movement sessions, traditional cooking classes and innovative workshops is available exclusively at Borgo Egnazia, which has been certified as the first hospitality partner in the world that embraces all the lifestyle characteristics of the Blue Zones areas. The 6-day program has been designed around the 9 specific characteristics – called the “Power 9” – which are repeated across the lifestyles of the Blue Zones populations and might explain their extraordinary longevity:

MOVE NATURALLY - The world’s longest-lived people are in environments that nudge them into moving naturally.
PURPOSE - Waking up in the morning knowing your purpose is worth up to seven years of extra life expectancy.
DOWN SHIFT - Detox from electronics to check in with the world.
Stress leads to chronic in ammation and is associated with every major age-related disease. The world’s longest-lived people have routines that shed stress.
80% RULE - Start the day with a good breakfast to carry you to lunch. “Hara hachi bu” the Okinawans say this mantra before meals as a reminder to stop eating when 80 percent full.
PLANT SLANT - The cornerstone of most centenarian diets? Beans. They typically eat meat - mostly pork - only ve times per month.
WINE AT 5 - Toast the sunset or get together with old and new friends for a happy hour.
Moderate drinkers outlive non-drinkers, especially if they share those drinks with friends.
BELONG - Stay connected with your faith routine. Attending faith-based services four times per month, no matter the denomination, adds up to 14 years of life expectancy.
LOVED ONES FIRST - Spend time with your family. Centenarians put their families rst. They keep aging parents and grandparents nearby, commit to a life partner and invest in their children.
RIGHT TRIBE - Travel with friends who encourage you to be active on your vacation and seek new experiences. The world’s longest-lived people chose or were born into social circles that support healthy behaviors.

This retreat takes place in the enchanting frame of Borgo Egnazia only twice a year in 2019 and four times in 2020 to enable participants to activate an attitude of renewal and environment changes, with the aim of significantly improving the quality and duration of their life.
