From a spa weekend in Yosemite to a restorative sleep retreat in Canyon Point, Utah, you don’t have to have Rebel Wilson status to get your wellness goals in order.
As far as celebrity wellness trends go, Rebel Wilson’s “year of health” was an undertaking worthy of high praise. Wilson’s journey — which started and ended at Austria’s illustrious luxury medical resort, Viva Mayr — saw the Pitch Perfect star’s transformation of mind, body and spirit all culminate recently, with a pair of beaming photo’s on the starlets Instagram page, along with a question for her 9.4 million followers: “What are your goals for next year?”
It’s as apropos a time as ever to start plotting your new year’s goals and resolutions. After a year of shutdowns and social distancing and so much sadness, who couldn’t use a little mind, body and spirit glow up to get things started?
While the fate of international travel remains unknown for the time being, the good news is you won’t have to go as far as the Austrian Alps to kickstart your very own wellness getaway. From a restorative sleep retreat in Utah to taking a wellness sabbatical in Hawaii and the first ever New Jersey Spa Week in early January, here are 11 of the best new wellness retreats to kick off your very own ‘year of health,’ whatever that means to you.
