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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
In fact there are wellness retreats with a focus on exploring meditation.
There are many retreat centers around the world that offer a range of different wellness holidays.
There are so many it can be confusing.
That is why you are in the right place.
We offer the opportunity to find and read about all the different retreats that interest you.
But still it can be daunting with so much choice.
We offer a complete concierge service where we help you find, plan and book the perfect wellness vacation.
All you have to do is make an enquiry on a wellness holiday package that looks interesting.
From there we will contact you and offer our advice and guidance.
Please feel free to make your first enquiry on a retreat.
It is true that they can seem expensive.
Let’s not forget that a wellness retreat requires experienced professionals and organized programs.
The main factor in the cost of a wellness retreat will be the type of venue and accommodation.
There is usually a similar program for less cost at a different venue if you search through what is available.
Well you are in the right place if this is what you are looking for. We partner with all the best wellness retreats and so there is no need to go anywhere else to be able to view everything that is on offer.
And that includes the most affordable wellness retreats too.
It’s not that hard to find a retreat that provides the program that you are looking for and at an affordable price.
It is not always the most expensive retreat that offers the best programs and support either.
India and Thailand would be the best destinations for finding affordable wellness retreats.
They have a whole range of venues and pricing available and generally provide more affordable options than other locations.
To help, here are all the affordable wellness retreats
