Every once in a while, we all deserve to break free from the daily grind and take care of ourselves. If you're dealing with sore muscles, an aching back, low libido, or have been feeling down lately, you should definitely consider booking time at a wellness retreat. A wellness retreat is a wonderful place to relax, rejuvenate, and reconnect with yourself.  There are many different kinds of retreats that offer a range of services including yoga, meditation, detox, and fitness. Whether you want to drop a few pounds or find your inner Zen, here’s what you need to know about wellness retreats as well as a list of some highly recommended destinations.

Yoga and Spiritual Retreats
A yoga retreat is just as exotic and otherworldly as it sounds. It ideally involves spending time in a place surrounded by natural beauty. When you think of heaven on earth with sparkling streams, golden fields, and lush greenery, this is exactly what many yoga retreats look like. Haramara Retreat in Mexico is one of the best retreats to help you embrace your spiritual side. Beautifully nestled between the sea and the hills, this retreat is captivating. It also offers newlywed and honeymoon packages so you can enjoy yoga with your plus one!

Other cool places to consider include Yoga Health Retreats in Australia; Absolute Sanctuary in Koh Samui, Thailand; and Swaswara in Gokarna, India.

Fitness Retreats
Have you been slacking off on your healthy habits lately? It might be time to reserve a spot in a fitness retreat. If you want to improve your fitness and fine-tune your mind, body, and soul connection, this is the place for you.  You can enjoy challenging exercises, a healthy
diet plan, and mindful practices that can help you lose weight while improving fitness. Some of the best fitness retreats can be found in Thailand, including the Thanyapura Health and Sports Resort in Phuket. Thanyapura is a dream come true for a fitness geek. It offers
thrilling sports packages, yoga programs, and weight management counseling that you can realistically follow once you head home. Other acclaimed fitness retreats worth considering are The Ranch in California and Chosen Experiences in Bali, Indonesia.

Tantra Retreats
Tantra retreats are a unique way to get reconnected with your sexuality. A tantric workshop usually involves different yoga exercises, meditation, and a tantric philosophy that evokes powerful emotions. The idea is to help you explore your own sexuality and establish a loving bond with your partner.  If you think you could benefit from tantric meditation, the Path of Tantra in North District, Israel, is a wonderful spot. Enjoy exploring a deep connection with your body under the guidance of highly professional tantric instructors. Another renowned place is The Mystical Yoga Center in Khajuraho, Madhar Pradesh. Here you get to learn the ancient art of tantra with your beloved in the exotic land of India.

Detox Retreats
Detox retreats help cleanse your body through meditation, deep breathing, and healthy habits. If you need a reboot, head to the Ti Sana Detox Retreat in Italy. This beautiful retreat offers a science-backed program that incorporates alternative healing for a full-body detox. Other famous places worth checking out are Phuket Cleanse Detox and Fitness Resort and Ananda Detox in Thailand.

Once the restrictions of COVID-19 finally come to an end, a wellness retreat would be a wonderful place to recharge, rejuvenate, and reconnect with yourself and others. Due to the huge economic impact this global crisis has had on so many businesses, however, make sure you double-check with the retreat you are interested in to see what their new schedules will be for retreats.
