A day can't pass by without discovering new "clean" recipes, as yet to be popularized superfoods and new ways to transform your yoga practice. If you're anything like me, you don't want the healthy discovery to end. So it should come as no surprise that retreats are popping up all over the world. And more importantly, let's look at the emergence of the luxury wellness retreat.
These retreats bring together awe-inspiring culinary experiences (whether vegan dishes or macrobiotic delights), stress-melting yoga and meditation, the inimitable splendor of Mother Nature and more to help guests get back to balance, connect with like-minded peers and cull fresh, healthy habits and inspiring principles to live by long after they've unpacked their travel weekenders.
Aside from the worldwide wellness movement, the luxury wellness retreat has really caught on as an answer to the search for new adventures, new experiences and exotic locations. Think: Amanjunkies meet Lululemon and Rodney and Colleen Saidman Yee!
You'll find anything from exclusive experiences with wildlife to tai chi and gi qong workshops and one-on-one life coaching sessions in locations as diverse as Bali, Phuket, Ocho Rios and Ibiza. Explore the self and the world - all at the same time.
