Sport, health & well-being

“A healthy mind in a healthy body.” Our modern and sedentary lifestyle, often behind a computer, requires the release of tensions to regain well-being. Regular physical activity is essential to maintain a balanced mind and body. Depending on the retreat, teachers offer a combination of sports and wellness activities. Learning and sharing workshops may also be arranged to engage personal development, therefore providing a comprehensive wellness experience.

Bab Zouina’s environment is perfectly suited for all types of physical activities (yoga, Pilates, aerobics, hikes, dancing, swimming, ice baths & breathwork, tennis, ball games, etc.). Well-being activities vary from hammam, oil massage, Thai massage, shiatsu, meditation, naturopathy, ayurveda, cooking and pottery.

Our traditional hammam provides relaxation in a calm and cosy atmosphere; therapists offer a hammam with special scrubbing and aromatic herbs from our garden.

Bab Zouina has 2 yoga shalas equipped with all needed props and supports. We also have a nice pool, a tennis clay court (please bring your own racket and suitable shoes for clay courts) as well as a pétanque pitch.

Food is also central to good health. “You are what you eat.” At Bab Zouina, healthy eating is a priority. Organic vegetables from our garden, local produce and our chef’s love of cooking are the main ingredients of every meal.

The teachers

Dr. Farhana

I’m a General Practitioner (GP) with an interest in holistic health working in London, England. Drawn by the diverse health needs of the capital, I chose to study medicine in the heart of the city, at University College London (UCL).  I’ve always been fascinated by people and what makes us tick – quite literally!  But as the complexities of the human body became clearer, I had more and more questions. What drives us to take the choices we make? How do societal and environmental factors affect our health needs?  I felt conventional medical training just wasn’t looking at the bigger picture, so I undertook a BSc in Medical Anthropology to complement my medical studies at UCL.  This journey transformed my outlook on life and the world around us, and culminated in fieldwork on the mind/body dichotomy which has shaped my medical practice to this day.

I decided to set up Happy Wise Well to explore this further and share my findings with a wider audience.  In the blog, I write about holistic health developments and research to empower individuals through knowledge and evidence-based practice.

My name is Hakima Mommen, I am a dietician, nutritherapist and mentor in personal, professional and spiritual development.
My mission:
I accompany many people who are
to re-establish a healthy relationship with to food and to harmonize their emotions in order to regain a balanced life.
My Beliefs:
Emotion is the key to transformation. When we allow ourselves to be vulnerable, we become more authentic and discover our power. Through my expertise, I help you shine by aligning you with your true self.
I spent over 10 years teaching as a nutrition teacher in Brussels. I taught teenagers and future nurses. The sense of sharing corresponded to me but over the years, I didn’t feel aligned with this universe anymore, as an employee limited in my field of action. I needed to explore this entrepreneurial world because the value of freedom had become essential to my personal and professional development.

Modern life is taking us further and further away from ourselves and from nature. I experienced this distance after a career in engineering. Today, I am a hypnotherapist and holistic coach. My goal is to help as many people as possible to find and maintain this connection through hypnosis, meditation, deep breathing and cold.


ECC Art Therapy Trainer, Shaman & Hypnotherapist

Ever since I was a little girl I have been exploring the world with intrepid curiosity!

Nature and my Berber grandmother were my teachers. Everything was an opportunity for discovery, from my perch in the lemon garden to the fascinating world of medicinal plants.

Then spontaneously, drawing and painting continued to accompany me in my inner escapades as a refuge, a natural benevolent therapy.

I am passionate about the arts in general and I chose to make it my profession. Life has brought me everything I needed to be the woman I am.
