Forget about your latest overindulgence. There are yoga and wellness retreats all over the world that have better views than your local gym.

» What it does: This website lists 6,751 spiritual and wellness retreats, centers and teachers in 58 countries and 785 cities, including Bali, British Columbia, Cali­for­nia, Colo­rado, Costa Rica and Peru.

» What’s hot: Although the retreat destinations are compelling — a seven-day women’s surf and yoga vacation in Bali or a yoga getaway in the Sacred Valley of Peru — the site also allows you to discover teachers and destinations you might not have heard about. Scroll down to the Hot Topics section on the home page and find key categories such as Meditation, Travel Retreat, Yoga Teacher Training, Plant Medicine or Wellness Retreat.

» What’s not: There are teacher reviews, but I couldn’t find reviews for retreats or centers. As a newbie to the retreat world, I wanted to read more about travelers’ experiences. When you tap on a destination in the Top Locations section, the retreats are numbered, but it’s unclear what the number ranking means. I would prefer user reviews.
