Have fun shaping up

Health retreats are a fantastic way to shape up, and the best part is that they’re enjoyable. They offer you the chance to discover new activities and be inspired by your surroundings whilst on a fitness retreat. Whether you’re someone who works out regularly or hardly at all, health retreats cater for all abilities and are proven to boost individual well-being. Improving your fitness on an activity holiday is also a great way to aid weight-loss and make you more body confident.

Heal with natural wonders

Your surroundings are completely natural meaning that the destination of your wellness retreat is often beautiful and untouched. This gives you the chance to reconnect with nature while reaping the benefits for yourself. Health retreats are a great way to escape the stresses of everyday life, with de-stressing methods such as meditation, detoxing and spa treatments enabling you to come away from your healing holiday feeling refreshed, energised and healthy.

Long lasting benefits

Health retreats leave you with a healthy afterglow lasting for weeks as our healthy holidays provide you with the motivation needed to continue your regime at home. The knowledge that you get from a wellness retreat will improve your long term health and stay with you for years to come. Health retreats also teach you how to separate your work life stresses from your personal life, giving you a new perspective of life.

Healthy change from everyday routine

It is very easy to get absorbed into a routine and neglect relaxation within our schedule, whereas health retreats can be life enhancing, as they are often in locations which enable you to disconnect from technology, meaning that you will have to neglect your calls, texts and emails. Through doing this you can relax a lot more easily and detach from the pressures of your everyday life from your time away, to help inspire you to becoming healthier, happier and stronger.

Helps you to break old habits

Whether you find you are over indulging at meal times, or smoking during your lunch break, our health retreats will help you to kick out your bad habits. When you’re in such a peaceful environment and are following a planned schedule, you won’t be able to continue your normal routine. By doing something completely new you will have the chance to break your old habits and instead form new ones, like yoga and meditation.

Meet new people

Some people choose to go on a group health retreat so they are not alone and can enjoy the company of other solo travellers on a singles holiday. Health retreats therefore give you a great opportunity to meet like-minded people who may have similar goals to yourself, providing you with further motivation. It also encourages you to broaden your horizon and step out of your comfort zone by interacting with those you may not normally speak to in everyday life.

Strong Focus on Relaxation

Because we’re so absorbed in technology in today’s society, we sometimes find ourselves struggling to maintain a healthy work life balance. We often find we are replying to emails or calling clients hours after we have left the office. On our health retreats you are in new surroundings where the idyllic scenery helps to relax your mind and body, to encourage restoration and relaxation.

Encourages you to be more creative and bring more positivity into your life

On a health retreat you’re encouraged to gather your thoughts, and you will find that when your mind is relaxed you’re able to be your most creative. The natural surroundings will help take your mind away from any negative energy that might be in your life, so that you can release all the negativity and instead focus on more positive thoughts by looking after your mind, body and soul.

Appeals to everyone

Anyone and everyone can take part in a health retreat, and tailor it to suit their own needs. Whether you are stressed from work, a sufferer of digestive problems, someone who wants to lose weight or simply wants a healthy getaway with a difference; health retreats are the perfect way to reconnect with nature and leave your troubles behind.
