Everyone needs a break. Every once in a while, in the midst of life’s hustle and bustle and accumulation of stress, one reaches a point in which a break to pause, slow down and recharge is very much needed. The need for a break is a communal feeling and, after such a turbulent year, it seems as though the need to look after one’s mental and physical well being has risen and taken priority. 

That being said, while retreats have always been available, it seems as though they are even more readily available now more than ever. Egypt is full of beautiful places where one could go immerse themselves in nature and take a break from Cairo’s chaos; many local wellness centres have started to take advantage of that and regularly organize wellness retreats to various places in Egypt; whether by the coast, by the Nile or in the desert. 

More and more people have started veering towards the importance of physical movement, meditation and nutrition in their lives, making conscious efforts to prioritize these aspects of life as opposed to merely focusing on work for example, or other stressful daily events.

The following wellness studios regularly offer all sorts of workshops and classes, in addition to organizing retreats every now and again. These upcoming retreats all take place this month, and each of them offer unique, beautiful and memorable experiences.
