Attending a retreat is a great way to get away from it all, giving one time to reflect on life, work through a challenge or meet like-minded people. They provide a serene haven with no distractions and dedicated staff and practitioners to facilitate your every need. No surprise that retreats have become a popular remedy for busy, time-poor modern lifestyles where silence, quiet and a fresh perspective are not on the menu.
While you don't need to venture far for a quality retreat, there are retreats on virtually every continent. Visit India for an Ayurvedic escape or Thailand for yoga, massage or detox retreats.

Choosing a Retreat
You need to decide which aspect of your lifestyle you want to focus on before you choose a retreat. If you want complete silence then a meditation retreat is the one for you - if weight loss is your primary goal then you are going to need a nutritionist on hand. Besides the cost of a retreat, you also need to assess how long they run for, and find a package that suits you.
