Flow Retreats, established in 2009, is a boutique retreat company that organizes holiday wellness retreats in beach resorts and hotels around the Philippines and Asia. Typically a retreat weekend consists of revitalizing yoga sessions, surf lessons at the best surf spots in the country, dance workshops, as well green smoothie and raw food workshops. Our retreats also include curated tours to local spots around the venue.
Flow Retreats has also branched out to events and tours around Manila such as Flow In The City, a one-day wellness market and workshop event and Flow Mystery Tours, a half-day tour around the Metro where one discovers under-the-radar spots, healthy eats, and new ways to move the body.
More than retreats, Flow Retreats is a wellness lifestyle brand geared towards healthy, mindful and passionate living.
