You’re working hard to secure the bag but you’re still human and in need of a break. Life can come at you so fast that you can forget the importance of taking a minute to woosah. Incorporating healthy holistic practices like yoga and meditation into your daily regimen can aid you in manifesting peace and good health into your busy, #BossQueen life. But a wellness retreat gives you the perfect opportunity to do both while also unplugging, relaxing, and hitting a reset button on your life. 

A wellness retreat typically includes events and activities tailored to help you heal, relax, and refocus your intentions. In fact, Wellness Retreats continue to grow increasingly popular each year. According to the Global Wellness Institute, worldwide wellness was a $4.2 trillion industry in 2017, with $639 billion dedicated to "wellness tourism." 

While our mental health is important, so too are our budgets, and wellness retreats can cost a pretty penny. However, there are more affordable options for holistic retreats all around the world. So if you’re looking to namasté while not breaking the bank, below are 5 affordable wellness retreats for our ladies seeking to heal the mind, body and spirit.
