Discover the Best Health & Wellness Retreats

First let's think about what Wellness is.

The easy answer.. Wellness is taking care of ourselves.

Having a healthy body and mind enables us to live fully, to be present with the people we love and have energy to do the things that we enjoy.

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.

And a Wellness Retreat is a great way of doing that.

An opportunity to nourish and cherish ourselves, to take a step back from the pace of 'normal' life.

So, where to start?

Aside from the obvious factors such as diet and exercise, our mental,
emotional and spiritual wellness play an important role.

Our relationships with the people around us, our attitude towards life and
our ability to process and express our emotions are essential to leading
a healthy and well balanced lifestyle.

There is no 'final goal' when it comes to wellness, and over the course of
our lifespan our needs change.

A Wellness retreat can be the time to recharge and refresh.

Wellness Holidays

Let's remember too that a Wellness Retreat is a holiday.

So 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 health and wellbeing is priceless.

So what are Wellness Resorts

Finding the Wellness Holiday that matches what you want to do is the first big step.

Ask yourself what you are looking for, what your expectations are from this wellness retreat.

What does the retreat offer? What activities and facilities do you want around you.

A yoga class or meditation course is a great place to dip your toes into the wellness world.

Maybe book a yoga retreat or gentle cleanse somewhere with professional guidance.

Health and Wellness retreats have become quite an attraction these days with so many classes, instructors and services.

They also offer great healthy menus so you can enjoy your time with a variety of healthy raw food throughout.

Make sure to check out the schedules and packages of any wellness holiday you are looking at,
to be sure it includes the activities you are interested in.

Wellness Retreat Destinations

With many countries and cultures Europe has a lot of variety to
offer in wellness spa retreats.

Consider or Spain or maybe check out the beautiful coastline of Portugal

All are destinations with great wellness retreat centers to visit.

Maybe you don't even need to go away if you live in
the UK as there are many good options for you at home.

And the same is true for Turkey which has some established wellness centers on its south coast in Bodrum.

Health & Wellness Retreats

Costa Rica has many options to choose from for a wellness getaway.

The jungle bordering the beautiful beaches on it's Pacific coastline are always a draw card.

On the other side of the world there are the Wellness destinations in Asia.

Consider Sir Lanka as an interesting destination, it used to be a
backpacker trail and now has a range of wellness hotels offering some
great health spa retreats.

The island feels like South East Asia and has a similar climate so it's a
comfortable place for a wellness retreat.

The wellness scene in Bali won't let you down for sure.

Detox & Weight Loss

There are different levels of detox retreats to participate in.

You will be able to match your expectations and enjoy the detox retreat that you want.

Maybe that's to eat healthy raw food and drink vegetable juices.

You can combine this with any different activity focus on a wellness retreat.

Or there's juice or water fasting with colonic treatments for those
who want to experience fasting of the body and mind.

Meditation Retreats

Meditation can take us on a journey we didn't expect.

If you are looking to explore yourself from inside out then
it is worth spending some time here.

We can learn to transform to a positive mind and create constructive thoughts.

Mediation retreats are a great place to learn and develop this practice.

Types of Wellness Retreats

Health and Well-being is paramount. Make the time for some self-love and care.

Mind and body will benefit and you come away with new opportunities ahead of you.

Change comes from new disciplines and practice, and a wellness retreat
is a great place to start this process.

Wellness Retreats allow us to enjoy nutritious food, spa packages and
activities that benefit us, from fitness to meditation.

So the real question is what type of wellness retreat is the right one for
you and what is available.Here are the main categories.

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.

2. Holistic Anti-Aging Retreats

Anti-Aging retreats are holistic programs that offer personalised treatments
and regimens to help you make change and continue that change in lifestyle afterwards.

Often they involve detox and some include an Ayurvedic approach to this.

A holistic approach considers all aspects of yourself in the wellness
treatment so that you benefit as much as possible

from the time you spend. Yoga classes, meditation classes, activities
and education that match you and your

objectives at the time so the best possible outcomes can be achieved.

3. 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 health and 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.

4. Wellness Spa Retreats

Who doesn't enjoy some self care and love on a retreat.

Refresh & Nourish yourself with raw food, healthy eating, juices, yoga and massage.

Oh and lets not forget all the spa services available.

Consider Bali or Thailand as potential destinations for your next trip.

5. Luxury Health Spa Retreats

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.

Which Retreat is for you

Health & Wellness is key to our emotional and physical well being.

Our wellness practices are a rewarding and positive feedback loop.

The body loves healthy raw food and vegetable juices and it lets you know this.

Activity in yoga or fitness combines with this healthy eating and the body and mind feel different.

Stress and fatigue can be a thing of the past. A different way of living is
available to us through wellness programs.

Happiness is our natural state of being, and when we are in harmony in body, mind and spirit,
finding that place of simple peace and joy becomes much easier.

Living a healthy lifestyle offers us more time, more energy, more space
and awareness. Investing in our health is an investment in our future.

And the best part is, it's fun and enjoyable.
