Detox Retreats by Roki Prunali
Feeling a little sluggish or just in a need for some cleansing of the mind and body? With all the stress we put on our bodies on a daily basis, we need to detox every once in a while. Here are a few of detox retreats where you can reset.
Raw Juice Camp – Portugal
One month before my wedding date, I decided I needed a getaway (alone) to clear my mind and detox before indulging on that special day. I came across the Raw Juice Camp in a magazine and decided to give it a try. Previous to arriving at the camp, I had done a few juice detoxes, but nothing more than 3 days. So I was not sure what to expect, but boy was I surprised. It was one of the best experiences I ever had.
Stephanie Jeff’s story about how she got into the raw lifestyle is truly inspiring and the best part is she is willing to share it with each and every one of you. She also does the camp alongside you and pushes you every step of the way. Stephanie flies in military trainers, who you learn to have a love-hate relationship with, that kick your butt morning to night with exhausting exercises that you somehow have so much energy to do. That is the detox talking and not to mention all the nutrients you are getting from (wait for it…) the JUICE. Then by the end of the week when things seem to be getting easier, they reward you with delicious raw vegan meals. (Raw Juice Camp)
Bikini Boot Camp – Tulum
I have always dreamed of going to Tulum, and I continuously check out Bikini Boot Camp as my reason to finally get me over there. With morning stretching, walks and yoga all on the beach, it is easy to forget that you are working out when you have such a landscape in front of you. Then the afternoon consists of taking a bicycle ride to the local ruins or the gorgeous cenotes, or even salsa dancing. There are so many alternative options.
Their low fat diet consists of Mexico’s colorful fruit and scrumptious local fish and organic chicken. Just think papaya, mango, ceviche or green gazpacho. Yum. (Bikini Bootcamp)
Luxury Barre & Yoga Retreat – Fiji
Barre class may be the trend in the workout scene, but this is barre like you have never seen before. Barre Body, based in Australia, just upped the ante by hosting a Barre and Yoga retreat in Fiji. You can expect daily sunrise yoga overlooking the beach, to yoga on a stand up paddleboard and a daily barre class in the afternoon. There diet includes fresh meals that are gluten and vegetarian with delicious juices. (Fit Luxury in Fiji)
The Ranch at Live Oak – Malibu
If you are living in California and want a no hassle, close to home retreat The Ranch offers a getaway to cleanse and detoxify your body. Don’t think just because you are down the street from home you are free to do what you want. The Ranch gives you results by their “no-option” daily group fitness routine, including hiking in the beautiful hills of Malibu, core and ab work, and daily group yoga sessions. Asking where is the relax? They offer private afternoon massages and a daily nap.
The in house chef creates organic vegetarian dishes with vegetables and fruits grown in their own backyard garden. To follow the detoxification process, there is no alcohol, caffeine or processed sugars. (The Ranch at Live Oak, Malibu)
