Making a real, healthy change would require you to get rid of bad habits and shift into a more positive mindset. Many Latinx wellness experts recognize this and they’re creating retreats that support this change physically, mentally, and spiritually. Leaders in wellness like Christine Gutierrez design retreats aimed at transformation through Diosa ceremonies and rituals while others like the Latinas Run Club offer experiences that can lead you on an adventure through nature. From curanderismo and sharing circles to beach resorts and the Italian countryside, these nine amazing Latinx wellness retreats have it all.
