First let's think about what Wellness is.
The easy answer.. Wellness is taking care of ourselves.
And Retreats are a great way to do this.
Wellness is about fueling the body with delicious, nutritious food that enables our system to work effectively and sustainably.
Staying active and moving in ways that feel joyous and expansive.
Wellness is also about learning when to slow down, to hit re-set and take the time out to unwind and find peace.
Our fast-paced modern lifestyles are not always conducive to superior wellness.
We all benefit from the self-care and love involved in taking care of ourselves.
An opportunity to nourish and cherish ourselves, to take a step back from the pace of 'normal' life.
There should be lots of pool, spa, relaxation and healthy eating.
And why not treat yourself to spa packages on your time away to make the most of it.
It's not always we get the chance to press the reset button and take some time out.
Time spent on our wellbeing is priceless.
1. Detox Spa Retreats
A detox is just the thing to press the reset button and spend time
to nurture the body and mind.
The body benefits so much from shutting down the digestion system
and taking a break with a cleanse.
The body and mind feel realigned and recharged.
You can choose to eat healthy raw food and drink vegetable juices.
Or there's juice or water fasting with colonic treatments for those
who want to experience fasting of the body and mind.
2. Wellness Fitness Retreats
Activity of varying degrees is a natural component of wellness. It may be
the flow of yoga, walking, swimming or it may be organised group fitness sessions.
Programs differ on what they offer and so you will be able to find
a retreat which meets your expectations..
Fitness is part of our well being, as is the food we consume.
On these retreats you will always find healthy raw food and juices.
Some fitness retreats even mix cleanses with their fitness programs.
Nice comforts away on a healthy holiday could be just the break you need.
A time to relax and enjoy your surroundings with the benefit of the activities on offer.
