Be nurtured and feel relieved on a retreat in South Tyrol. In the airy spaces of the Alpine woodlands, apple orchards and architectural marvel adds colourful charm to this unique region. For those seeking a short break to be in the company of nature and its whimsical beauty, consider South Tyrol as the go-to location. Each morning, draw a generous lungful of clean air to kick-start the day refreshed and feel restored motivation and determination to take on the new day in northern Italy.
Explore the art and science of Yoga and the mechanisms of breathing correctly, key elements that we sometimes neglect. The importance of self-love and self-care will be the central focus through thermal treatments using natural resources such as Swiss pine trees obtained from the surrounding forests, stones of slate and wool sheared from sheep of the mountains and biking and hiking excursions. Nature is the underpinning principle of wellbeing here in South Tyrol, allowing not only space to breathe freely but for the mind to wander and stoke curiosity.
Often, a retreat and a holiday are confused as being the same so what exactly is a retreat? Despite similarities in their definition, to take time to detach and detox from the autonomy of daily life, the approaches and results vary. To be more specific, a retreat is taking time to be away from the everyday settings, plunged into an immersive programme to achieve results such as personal enlightenment, unlocking creative energies and reevaluating our priorities. No two programmes are the same but each will be held in some of the world’s most exclusive and undiscovered corners such as South Tyrol in north Italy.
Each programme consists of a range of activities spent with highly professional teachers and specialists. In the absence of home comforts and the overwhelming rush of daily life, be armed with knowledge to continue to maintain a balanced lifestyle at home. If this is your first retreat, it is important to ask yourself why you would like to go on a retreat and what you aim to achieve.
Shadowed by the steep slopes of the Alps, circled by Swiss pine trees meeting the startlingly beautiful Ulten Valley, out in South Tyrol, nature is the primary key-holder to cultivating wellbeing, manifested into the activities, classes and workshops. Each day will be spent outdoors to maximise close-contact with nature to foster a deeper connection.
Held in some of the world’s most exclusive and luxurious resorts and hotels, at the end of each programme we ensure guests are equipped with the essential tools to continue to choreograph a balanced and fulfilled lifestyle. At Balance Holidays, we define a balanced lifestyle as being mindful, adopting self-care and listening to the body to nourish it with nutritious and healthy meals. We understand that individual needs vary which is why each programme in our collection is hand-selected and carefully considered to safeguard our guest’s needs and surpasses each expectations.
Through first-handed, personal experience, we understand the confusion around the wellbeing retreats market, which is why our philosophy is to inspire others on their individual wellbeing journey. The team at Balance Holidays are readily available to speak to, to offer advise on the most suitable retreat to suit your needs as well as provide reassurance to make bookings a seamless and highly personalised service.
