Taking a trip in the new year? Then head to these wellness desinations for a ‘recharge and reset’ break
Hena Desai
Yoga at sunrise, a massage at mid-day, and a fresh, slow-cooked meal to end the day – sounds like a dream, right? Welcome to the world of wellness tourism, which allows you to cut off from the humdrum of everyday life with curated experiences that help you connect with yourself, practice self-care, and just feel a whole lot better about life. Let’s face it, entering year three of the pandemic hasn’t been easy, with most of us already feeling jaded and forced to re-evaluate our habits and lifestyle choices. To fight the uncertainly, unease, and cabin fever now may be the perfect time to sign up for a wellness getaway, one that helps you hit the reset button on life, with the promise to heal you from the inside out.

WOODS AT SASAN

Where: Gir, Gujarat

What: Energy chanelling and healing

Situated at the edge of the ‘land of lions’, amidst lust mango orchards, this is India’s first-of-its-kind biophilic resort. From architecture to programs, everything about the place is designed to help you connect with nature, open up, and breathe. There are many luxurious activities you can try here – from private wildlife tours to a lavish culinary experience. But the most luxurious of them all is elevating your me-time at their Som Wellness Centre. The allure of relaxing Ayurvedic massages in an environment as serene as this is real, but we’re spotlighting this place for the interesting energy-healing therapies on offer. Feeling blocked, low and anxious? Let the expert hands of a Reiki master heal you through the energy channels in your body. Or, learn how to balance the energy yourself with movement meditation or Tai Chi. The pièce de resistance, however, is an ancient Buddhist energy healing technique called Lama Fera – where a healer uses 12 sacred symbols, Buddhist malas and crystals to rid your mind off anxiety, overthinking and depression by connecting you with the energy of Buddha, aka, the Universe.

HEAL FARM
