What is a retreat?
A retreat can be a place of privacy, tranquility and more. ‘Re'… Revitalise, renew, relax, recover, relate. ‘Treat' defines luxury, to be cared for, extravagance, indulgence, delicacy, pleasure and delight…Retreat!
When visiting a retreat you feel good. It's time away to treat yourself, relax, energise, learn new skills, focus on your wellbeing, rekindle the bond with your partner or spend time with friends.
Retreat types are growing, there's a vast selection to choose from – so how do you decide on your retreat stay?
I've included some ideas for you…
Are you looking for time away by yourself to rejuvenate? A detox retreat will cleanse your body. Trained practitioners will ensure your nutrition levels are at their optimum plus guide you every step of the way to better health. Your skin will improve, you may lose weight or break a caffeine, junk food or smoking addiction. Many detox retreats supply vegan, organic and vegetarian food only, which is a great way to cleanse and renew. Some include the option of fasting to completely eliminate toxins from your body. Take your treatment further with a colonic, spa and massage. You'll arrive home feeling transformed and rejuvenated.
Yoga and meditation retreats are another great way to revitalise. You'll make the most of your day often waking at sunrise then fall into a deep slumber after your days scheduled activities and classes. Better ways of living and improving health are openly discussed with individual attention given to support your stay. Yoga and meditation retreats are held in places of silent sanctuary. You'll benefit from the beauty of nature, fresh air and feel the serenity. You'll become more flexible and achieve a state of relaxed bliss whilst nourishing your body plus meet kindred spirits.
When visiting a Buddhist retreat you can expect to share with others whilst learning about yourself. Enquire about paying extra if your own room is vital. Like yoga retreats you will be expected to rise early, the difference is you'll be sharing chores and eating with others in a communal area. You'll benefit from leaving your comfort zone and redirect your energy from the material world we live in. Buddhist retreats will teach you about appreciation, helping others and living in the moment.
