Euphoria Retreat, Greece

Although still only a few years old, Euphoria Retreat feels as though it has been around forever, offering transformational treatments to those looking for improved physical or emotional wellbeing. Nestled in the pine-clad hills of Greece’s Peloponnese peninsula, we particularly like their Yoga & Mindfulness Programme which uses a combination of nutrition, personalised yoga and meditation sessions to enhance your overall physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing. When not finding your inner Yogi, we recommend checking out the retreat's spa which spans 4 floors and includes a Byzantine hammam, Finnish sauna, hot tub, salt therapy room and a large & airy high-tech gym.

Ayurveda Parkschloesschen, Germany 

As its name suggests, the Ayurveda Parkschloesschen approach to wellness is based on the ancient principles of the holistic art of Ayurvedic healing from the food, to the forms of therapy, treatments, exercises, yoga and meditation. For those looking to feel energised and rejuvenated the Yoga & Meditation Retreat Programme is the best option, leaving you emotionally, physically and spiritually lighter. The yoga exercise is combined with an Ayurvedic diet, which is believed to be the best way to achieve an overall sense of health and wellbeing.
