We’re not even halfway through the year and we could already use some major TLC. If you’re anything like us, then you’ve probably found yourself living through people’s #instavacations lately. The weather is warming up and the extra hours of sunlight are motivating us to go outside. Here at The POSE Box, we love wellness and one of our dream vacays is to spend a week at a wellness retreat. Thanks to the increased conversation around wellness, there are tons of wellness retreats and hotels adopting wellness routines all over the world. Here’s a list of the ones we can definitely picture ourselves gaining our balance at.
1). Carillon Miami Wellness Resort, Miami Beach
Aside from being in one of the most beautifully refreshing cities in the US, the Carillon Miami Wellness Resort has a whole wellness program guests can tailor to fit their needs. They offer three-day luxury 3-day luxury wellness retreats tailored to wellness topics like awareness and awakening your inner goddess.If you’re interested in exploring your emotional health, onsite therapy and counseling sessions are available. You can also attend wellness lectures that include tea with energy healers and journaling workshops. Did we mention the resort is an all-suite facility with rooms so beautiful that even the call of fresh avocado toast can’t get you out of bed fast enough? If our obsessing isn't enough to make you book a flight to Miami, maybe them being voted the #1 resort in Florida by Conde Nast Traveler is.
2). Miraval Austin Resort & Spa, Austin, TX
Texas is much more than bbq and horses! People assume a lot about The Lone Star state, but this wellness retreat in Austin shows a different side of the state. Located in the heart of Texas Hill Country, the Miraval Austin describes itself as a life-enhancing sanctuary. Guests at the resort can engage in daily activities like guided meditations and stand up paddle adventures.

5) Mii amo, Sedona, Arizona
Can somebody say aesthetics?! Before we get into the amazing wellness work happening at this spa, we have to acknowledge the beautiful scenary surrounding it. Mii amo is set within the soaring red rock backdrop of Sedona, Arizona. The location itself looks like something out of one's imagination and the spa carries this into the facility. The team at Mii amo is committed to helping guests through a journey that can be catered to your specific needs and intentions.
