Frequently Asked Questions

What is a wellness retreat?


While the traditional holiday centres around an indulgent escape, a wellness retreat de-stresses by offering the time and space to slow down. Rather than eating and drinking in excess, wellness activities may include meditation and yoga to recharge and revitalize, while equipping you with healthy habits to take home. As you will explore new destinations, it will be less about sightseeing and more about reconnecting with nature, while you discover more about yourself.

Chương trình nghỉ dưỡng chăm sóc thân-tâm-trí (wellness retreat) là gì?


Trong khi một kỳ nghỉ dưỡng thông thường xoay quanh việc đi dạo chơi, ăn uống và nghỉ ngơi ở một điểm đến, thì một kỳ nghỉ dưỡng chăm sóc thân-tâm-trí (wellness retreat) có mục đích chính là giúp bạn thoát khỏi những căng thẳng, vội vã trong cuộc sống hàng ngày bằng cách mang đến cho bạn khoảng thời gian và không gian để sống chậm lại và tâm trí có dịp lắng xuống, kết nối với sự tĩnh lặng và bình yêu bên trong mỗi chúng ta. Thay vì khuyến khích ăn uống quá độ, bạn sẽ tham gia các hoạt động chăm sóc sức khỏe thân-tâm, bao gồm thiền, yoga, detox… để giúp bạn nạp năng lượng và phục hồi sức khỏe, đồng thời trang bị cho bạn những thói quen và kĩ năng lành mạnh để thực hành sau kỳ nghỉ. Không đơn thuần chỉ là khám phá những địa danh mới, kỳ nghỉ sẽ giúp bạn kết nối và hòa điệu gần gũi với thiên nhiên, từ đó xúc tác sự kết nối và tìm hiểu đối với chính bản thân mình.




Để tham gia kỳ nghỉ dưỡng wellness retreat này, tôi có cần phải biết tập yoga và thiền trước không?
