Travel has changed more or less in recent years: from traditional hiking to green travel to the present day, therapeutic retreats.
Green travel has followed green energy and is one of the top green industries in the world.
Like its cousins in other sectors, green travel has an impact on the climate of travel companies and customers. Green travellers and travel companies aim to reduce the impact of their efforts across a broad range of practices, mainly under 3 R’s: reduce, reuse and recycle.
Good living has become a norm in the last decade, and more people are now focused on their psychological and spiritual well-being. If you’re a busy blue-collar worker or a long-term spiritual traveller, holistic getaways offer an uplifting experience and a restorative break. Here are different forms of therapeutic retreats that can help to soothe the mind, body, and soul.
Yoga and Ayurvedic Spa Retreat
Assume waking up and hearing of water, getting an organic meal to begin your day, and then practice some fitness with a yoga session and finally finish your day with a soothing ayurvedic massage. Bali is a famous destination for such retreats, where a beautiful, emerald green environment combined with holistic practices promotes healthy living. This kind of holistic retreat is perfect for travellers searching for an aspect of holistic living throughout their holidays in Bali.
However, there are health resorts WA and in other parts of Australia that offer the same experience.
