As we enter the third year of a global pandemic, recent data shows that women are among the most vulnerable to depression, stress and anxiety. Now more than ever, we need to take care of ourselves and make time to connect with other women. Wellness isn't frivolous — it's part of living a healthy life, especially those of us who have been caretakers for others.
If you're considering a wellness retreat or tour, we invite you to choose one of the small businesses listed below. In most cases, you can speak directly with the founder or CEO to get first-hand information. You can also support another woman's business — one that caters to women only. We all win!

walks through the Puglia countryside. We will stop to explore villages like magical Alberobello, with its fairy-tale atmosphere and Otsuni known as “la citta bianca”.

Read this one about Jeni's Global Yoga Trips: "When traveling solo a woman wants to know she's safe, where she's going and who she's going with. Jeni's retreats are off the beaten path (thank goodness) but her warmth and caring for each and everyone of her attendees gives a sense of comraderie and safety." —Joellen
