Mini Escapes in Your Own Home
Here at Soul Sanctuaries, we’re usually encouraging our clients to ‘travel far to look within’. We are now in unprecedented times due to the COVID-19 outbreak, where self isolation is called for and our lives are undergoing a huge transition. It’s more important than ever to try to find the calmness within and stay as healthy as possible; easier said than done when the biscuit barrel is calling and you’re trying to juggle homeschooling with work.
Our nurturing wellness retreat partners in Asia are preparing Instavideos, Mini-Wellness Breaks from home and lots more. Here, we are outlining a few of our favourite, free online resources to keep you motivated during the Coronavirus lockdown;
Escape Haven Free Mini Escape at Home
The gorgeous team at Escape Haven in Bali are offering a free 5-day Mini Escape from the comfort of your own home. Normally hosting fantastic Women Only Retreats from a luxury villa complex in Canggu, Bali, they understand the new stresses currently facing women. Isolation, social distancing, and new ways of working and parenting, can all contribute to raised levels of anxiety.
Taking the best elements of their Bali wellness retreats, join the 5-day Mini Escape, which promises to help you thrive during this difficult time. You’ll only need 20 minutes per day to fit this into your schedule.
