There’s lots of retreats out there in the world and I’m lucky enough to have gone on a few of them. There are yoga retreats, general wellness retreats, juicing retreats, meditation retreats, hiking retreats, nature retreats, mindfulness retreats and silence retreats. There is even a Wine Spa Retreat in Japan, and a ‘Fuck It’ Retreat in Italy! In fact, you can check out some of the weirdest and wackiest retreats around the world here if you are interested!
So what is it that makes a METreat Retreat different from some of the other retreats that are out there? Read on to find out….
1) They are exclusively for Mums
Why? Because I passionately believe that mums really need a proper break from the daily grind of motherhood, and benefit from coming together to share their ups and downs and love to connect, socialize, network and create friendships.
2) Its’ not too extreme
We won’t be asking you to climb any mountains, adopt any ridiculous yoga poses, or meditate for hours in silence.
However, we will be offering you the opportunity to experience all of these things (yoga, nature, meditation, arts and crafts) and decide for yourself whether these are things that you want to take home with you and try to incorporate into your daily lives.
3) It’s not too structured
Yes, there is a program but we understand that all you might want to do is enjoy and undisturbed night’s sleep at have a long lie in. There isn’t going to be anyone waking you up at with a bell at 5 o’clock in the morning or chanting in your ear!
4) We have delicious food, accompanied by wine with dinner
….and coffee and chocolate are most definitely allowed. Why would we deny you the things that bring you the most pleasure?! There is no fasting, no juicing, no denying – just healthy delicious food and great company.
5) It’s not too serious!
I mean we just want you to let your hair down, relax and have a bit of a laugh. Nobody is going to be judging your yoga technique or style, racing you up mountain or laughing at your dance moves. You just need to relax and go with the flow!
So as you can see, we’ve tried to create a gentle, relaxing and fun environment for mums to unwind, decompress, relax and have fun with other like minded mums.
But if it’s still not for you, you can always consider an Orgasmic Meditation Retreat in the UK, or a Prison Pampering Retreat in Thailand!!
