What is a wellness retreat and how can this improve your life you may ask?
We live a very fast-paced life. Were we get pulled this way and that way, we are always busy in between, work, family and just life in general. As humans, we rarely take the time out to just be.

It is easy for us to get all wrapped up in the routines we follow, and move along like a well-oiled machine, and neglect ourselves in the process. Our own wellbeing and relaxation often takes a back seat, even our hobbies become intense with as it often comes with its own challenges and goals.
