Culinary & Wellness Experience.
You work hard. You show up for the people you care about most in your life. You give a lot of your energy, but how often do you fuel up? Just as your car needs fuel and maintenance, so does your hardware.
Nourishing yourself fully starts with how you fuel and digest in the physical world. Practically speaking, the foods that you eat. As much as you’d love to indulge in nutritious and delicious meals, carving the time out to research and prepare can be the issue.
Science is now showing how closely related the gut and brain connection is. Your gut and brain have constant communication through the nervous system, hormones and immune system. Microbiome, the new buzzword in the industry, speaks to the brain in its own language via the vagus nerve.
Your mental and emotional well-being can be affected by the foods that you eat.
The guiding principle of Ayurveda practiced thousands of years before modern medicine, is that your mind and body are interconnected. This healing principle teaches us that your well-being depends on your ability to digest everything you take in from your surrounding environment. It starts with tangible substances like food and drinks but also your daily experiences. How you digest certain situations, process emotions and the impressions you take in from your senses.
When you don’t eat properly, lack physical activity, don’t process emotions, stick to unhealthy daily habits, your digestion process is hampered.
This is a weekend for you to refuel the body from the inside out. A time to detach yourself from the stresses back home, unplug from your daily devices and reconnect with YOU.
We’re inviting you, yes YOU! The ambitious being that may or may not have been researching across the internet for a retreat to help get you back on track with your well-being goals. This could be the “sign” you’re waiting for.
We, the souls at Wanderwell, live to curate once-in-a-lifetime experiences that leave you transformed forever. Our holistic approach is way beyond a spa and fitness regimen. Our exclusive experiences incorporate 5-star luxury, mindfulness workshops, yoga and fitness, meditation, culture, and delicious clean eats.
