Getting away for a long weekend or more to work on your health and wellbeing has undoubtedly become a popular and regular pastime for many people. Stress, long working hours and even family life can all take their toll, or sometimes a person just wants to kick start new healthy habits, or focus on a specific area of their health. While some yoga and health retreats can be expensive, there are ways to save money besides looking out for any deals or offers such as those posted on this website. One good way to reduce the cost of a health retreat is to travel during the off-season, so you can save on accommodation, flights, and activities such as spa treatments and yoga classes. Conversely, times to avoid including major holiday periods or bank holidays, and if you’re planning to go overseas to improve your health, make sure you check any public holidays specific to the destination you’re considering. Booking early can save you money, just as being able to go somewhere last minute also can. And if you need to fly to reach a particular spa or yoga retreat, look out for airline offers or deals, consider flying with a budget airline, or if you organise things early enough, use your frequent flyer miles. As for the retreat, make sure you research packages carefully to see what’s included, and if you need to pay for extras including airfares, transfers and any meals. The rates for accommodation types can be different cost-wise as well; if you’re travelling on your own, and you are happy to share a room, you’ll usually save money here too. Or you can opt to forgo a premium room with a view for a standard room without the perks. Another way to enjoy a yoga or health retreat is to attend a day facility for classes and treatments, but stay elsewhere. If you decide this is a good way to go, check out hotel deals nearby, consider a holiday rental if you are staying for more than a few days so you can use public transport to get to the venue each day, or walk.
