For a lot of us vacation mode means the opposite of a healthy lifestyle. Between the endless amounts of good food, drinks and beachside lounging it’s easy to push off that hotel gym session you said you’d do. If you’re looking for a quick life escape (read: work escape) that will keep you happy and healthy then look no further than these top rated health and wellness retreats.
Perks to going on a retreat? Global exploration paired with some healthy mind and body exercises to keep you in top form. With destinations ranging from Morocco, the South of France, Bali, Cuba, and all over the United States there are plenty of options for the adventurous soul. The focus on each retreat ranges from digital detoxes to circuit training to flow classes with famous Yogis. We’ve listed out some of our favorite health and wellness retreats below (B/SPOKE Cape House retreat anyone?).
Yoga for Bad People – Just as the name suggests this retreat isn’t solely about practicing your sun salutations.

Might we suggest a quick escape to Havana, Cuba in December?
