Tell us about the resort – what makes The BodyHoliday special?
The BodyHoliday is a luxury all-inclusive wellness holiday located on the tropical island of St Lucia. It’s been on my wish list for over 5 years and so I was very excited when I had the opportunity to visit. From Australia it’s a long way, however we suggest breaking up the trip with some time in the US or other nearby islands and stay there for at least a week. There are direct flights from the UK and for that reason you’ll find that most of the other guests are British with a mix of guests from Canada and the US as well.

Here, the philosophy is centered on rebalancing the body’s energies and emotions of the five elements of Earth, Fire, Water, Wood and Metal; emotionally, physically and spiritually.
‘Euphoria’ is a feeling or state of happiness and bliss, and if your focus is to reset and rejuvenate in a peaceful setting, there’s no doubt that the holistic healing haven of Euphoria Retreat, within settings of historical ruins, is one of the best places to do so.

Women are blessed with the awe-inspiring duty of endowing a new life unto the world. Often called “The Miracle of Life,” this phase of a women’s life is regarded as the most life-changing mile stone for good reason. Women go through changes ranging from physical, emotional, and spiritual while being keenly aware of what it means to give birth to their own little child, therefore, nothing is more important than ensuring their baby starts out happy and healthy. However, this concern for a healthy new-born can sometimes be all engrossing and an impediment to a healthy pregnancy as early research indicates the more stress the mother exhibits during development, the higher likelihood the baby will present anxiety and attention difficulties at birth. Luckily, we offer programmes to relax and prepare you for a healthy birth during the fragile stages of pregnancy.

It’s understood, a life of stress is a life without pleasure. It causes the body to reprioritise what’s important, such as blood flow and heart rate, which can lead to a decrease in libido—a state of being that feeds into the cycle of anxiety. Thankfully, that can be reversed! Known to produce a sensation of tranquility, a feeling of intimacy, and a joyous mood, intercourse is vital to a holistic life. The first step to a well-rounded life is to give yourself the chance to relax and rejuvenate by taking a much-needed vaycay to de-stress on holiday. Our retreats located around the world have programs focused on helping you do just that by offering reinvigorating treatments to re-centre you and your partner’s relationship.
