A healthy getaway

Feeling lacklustre? A retreat focusing on nutrition and wellbeing could be what your body needs.

Written by Hayley Roper

It’s an all too familiar feeling for many to be constantly tired, feeling overworked, lacking nutritious meals, getting a ‘clogged’ mind and experiencing overwhelming stress. Your body and mind need time out on a regular basis to replenish and rejuvenate from the stresses of everyday life.

Overseas health retreats are gaining popularity as a way to feel empowered, focus on fitness training, learn positive nutrition habits and open your mind to change while in a new environment. At Love My Body, a Melbourne-based health and fitness company, we host regular all-female health and fitness retreats in Bali and are finding them a wonderful, enlightening way to impart health and wellbeing advice to participants.

"The retreats will leave you feeling clean, light and physically challenged, and give participants the opportunity focus on their health and fitness away from the stresses of everyday life."

On one of our typical health retreats, groups of up to 12 women stay in a village nestled in the hills of Ubud eating food that is locally grown, sipping on fresh lemongrass and ginger tea and taking part in fitness training twice a day. The retreat also includes a 3am sunrise trek up a volcano, visits to local hot springs and plenty of opportunities for some rest, recovery and pampering along the way. Now in their third year, our retreats are held over the Australian winter and are an invigorating way to escape the cold and connect with a group of like-minded women on a physical and emotional level.

While fitness and wellbeing is the focus, it’s not all serious – we have plenty of laughs and fun together. Activities are tailored to individual needs and accommodate both beginner and advanced fitness levels. The retreats will leave you feeling clean, light and physically challenged, and give participants the opportunity focus on their health and fitness away from the stresses of everyday life.

If you think a health retreat in Bali sounds like just the thing for your winter wellbeing, visit lovemybody.com.au for a full itinerary and upcoming dates.
