If you’ve never experienced a wellness retreat, it’s time for you to take advantage of these popular mind-and-body-renewing options. We’ve created this essential overview for first-timers with easy-to-understand answers to the most frequently asked questions about wellness retreats:
What exactly is a wellness retreat?
You’ve likely heard someone say after a particularly hectic vacation experience that they feel as though they need another vacation to simply recover. The idea behind a wellness retreat is to provide a restful and rejuvenating experience that leaves our guests feeling renewed and reenergized, instead of simply exhausted. An emphasis on serenity and interacting with nature is usually an essential element, and so most wellness retreats are offered at resorts in spectacular natural settings. More than just a different way to experience a vacation, wellness retreats offer a new way to experience a destination and truly get in touch with yourself.
What should I expect?
The truth is wellness retreats can vary greatly. You can usually expect a program that focuses on relaxation, self-awareness and finding or restoring the essential mind-body connection. Both physical and mental health are usually highlighted, often with an element of the spiritual. Health-focused activities and menus are usually central, as is a naturally beautiful and inspirational setting, but the variety of options can be overwhelming. From meditation in the Himalayas and surfing in Costa Rica to horseback riding in the desert and yoga retreats on the Mexican seaside, you’ll find that there is something for every desire. Wellness retreats in mountain settings are particularly popular, as they instantly offer an awe-inspiring, natural setting with an array of outdoor activities available.
