Peoplehood Retreats in New York

For a long time, self-care and me-time were at the top of the list of all wellness trends. However, combined with the pandemic, social distance and restrictions, we have had a clear excess of these in recent years. What we lack are meaningful relationships and other people.

At least that is what studies and observations by psychiatrists, psychotherapists and life coaches suggest. As a countermeasure, so-called peoplehood retreats or social wellness clubs are emerging. Pioneers in this cause were SoulCycle founders Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice. In their retreats, people meet for 60-minute sessions. In addition to active listening, the program includes storytelling, self-awareness, perspective shifting and Breathwork.

The gurus at the Zulal Wellness Resort by Chiva-Som in Qatar offer Full Moon Yoga on the beach every full moon now. Then you can let go of everything that weighs you down.

Thermal water provides well-being. We let ourselves fall, feel how everyday life is very far away. At the same time, the warm water has a multiple positive effect on the body. Now, the wellness experts at the Bürgenstock Collection in Switzerland have created three different Hydrothermal Journeys. Depending on the desire (regeneration, activation or relaxation), a combination of water and heat or cold is put together for this after a personal preliminary discussion. The guests can then go at their own pace on a self-guided wellness journey.

One would like to think that there is actually nothing easier than to breathe. But in fact, most of us do it wrong. We usually breathe too shallowly and too short. Correct breathing involves the entire abdominal and chest area. You breathe out longer than you breathe in. This improves your memory, sleep and mood. The Pnoé Breathing Life resort in Crete is fully dedicated to wellness and proper breathing techniques in a relaxed and luxurious atmosphere.

Psammotherapy from Egypt

Cleopatra is said to have sworn by the treatment with Psammon (=sand). She not only bathed in milk, but also had herself covered with up to 50 degrees of warm sand. The knowledge of this form of therapy is currently experiencing a renaissance. No wonder, after all, the weight of the sand relaxes the body, its warmth promotes blood circulation, and tension and let's pain subside. In sports medicine, neurology and gynecology, people are increasingly swearing by, what is perhaps the oldest of the wellness trends, psammotherapy.
