In these strange times, looking after our physical and mental health is more crucial than ever – but with so much uncertainty around, it can be difficult to stay positive. A great way to reboot the system is by signing up to one of the many online wellness retreats which have launched in light of the pandemic. Here we share a selection of the best, from an ayurvedic-inspired Balinese programme to a day-long summer solstice celebration.

Online Wellness Retreats

Virtual Yoga Brunch Club Retreat x Detox Kitchen

Virtual Yoga Brunch Club x Detox Kitchen

Enjoy a weekend of delicious food and yoga with Virtual Yoga Brunch Club’s online retreat, running in partnership with Detox Kitchen. You’ll have access to six live yoga classes, including a mixture of dynamic vinyasa and slower flows as well as an inversions workshop. To fuel the movement, you’ll be sent three days’ worth of delicious Detox Kitchen food, including breakfast, lunch, dinner, juices and snacks. There will also be a non-alcoholic cocktail masterclass with mindful drinking company La Maison Wellness, a cook along workshop with Detox Kitchen founder Lily, and a chat with Rob Hobson, nutritionist and co-author of The Detox Kitchen Bible. 3-5 July, from £199. yogabrunchclub.com

Soul Medicine Retreat, Soul Adventures

Ibiza-based Kundalini yoga retreat Soul Adventures is headed up by yogi, reiki master and shamanic healing practitioner Trish Whelan. Nestled in the mountains on the quieter side of the island, the retreat usually involves time spent in the glorious Casa Xuclar Beach House – but while travel is on hold, Trish is running a series of virtual experiences that you can tune into from all over the world. The next Soul Medicine Retreat, taking place from 8-12 July, will involve Kundalini yoga, meditation, workshops and online treatments, with a focus on healing and recalibrating. Ahead of the retreat, participants will be sent a shopping list alongside recipes for healthy, nourishing meals created by co-host Tess from Love Food Ibiza. If you’re looking for more flexibility opt for the 40-Day At Home Virtual Retreat, which you can start any time and complete at your own pace, offering lifetime access to meditations and yoga classes alongside live online healing circles. 8-12 July, €220.00. souladventures.co.uk

Summer Solstice Online Retreat, As We Live & Breathe

Summer Solstice Retreat

The next online retreat from As We Live And Breathe invites guests to celebrate the first harvest with a day of guided meditations, yoga, enlightening discussion and plant-based seasonal cooking. Though the retreat takes place online, organisers have factored in time for participants to get outside, as connecting with nature is a core theme of the day. In the evening you’ll cook a vegan meal alongside chef Gabriele Luppi, then everyone will sit down and eat together while sharing uplifting stories. 8 August. Full day tickets are offered on a ‘pay what you can’ scale of £35-£55. Half day tickets are £20. asweliveandbreathe.co

The Ayurveda Detox and Immune-Booster, ONEWORLD

Ayurveda is a holistic system developed in ancient India to help people sync with nature and thrive in an ever-changing environment. Its origins date back thousands of years, yet the practice remains more relevant than ever – hence the new online programme from ONEWORLD Ayurveda, a Balinese retreat located in idyllic rice-field terraces near Ubud. Created by a team of Ayurvedic doctors, yoga teachers and chefs, the seven-day detox is designed to stimulate your immune system, eliminate toxins, improve vitality and calm the mind. Over the course of the week, clients will receive access to seven yoga classes, cooking demonstrations and Balinese blessing rituals. Aside from the wealth of wellbeing benefits you’ll get from the retreat, it’s for a good cause: each programme purchased includes a built-in donation that provides a Balinese family with a week-long survival food basket. From $95. oneworldayurveda.com

Virtual Yoga and Nutrition Retreat, Swell Yoga

This weekend retreat is hosted by yoga teacher Elly and vegan chef Nikita from surf and yoga retreat company Swell Yoga, with the aim of bringing a burst of healthy living and friendship into your home. Activities include virtual chats with fellow retreaters, strength and stability yoga classes, breathwork and interactive cooking sessions, focusing on plant-based, gut-healing recipes. £49, retreats run each weekend beginning on the Friday. swellyoga.net
