Ahh, summer. The time of year we’re supposed to relax and recharge. In theory. Most of us no longer get a three-month break from our responsibilities like we did when we were in school, so it’s up to us to carve out time in our busy summer schedules — between barbecues and graduation parties — to take a few days to focus on our health.

Sure, wellness travel is all the rage and there are plenty of pricey options out there, but not everyone can afford these trips. Thankfully, there are a handful of reasonably priced alternatives that give you all the benefits of a health retreat without the sticker shock.

If yoga is your thing, we already have an article focused just on affordable summer yoga retreats, so the ones here will go beyond the padded mat, looking toward utilizing nature as a wellness resource. So take a look and take your pick of these health-conscious trips that will leave you feeling rejuvenated and ready to tackle the rest of the summer season.
