In addition to home stays and tour bookings, the online rental marketplace now offers online experiences to enrich your wellbeing from the comfort of your own home. Being stuck at home doesn’t have to mean that you miss out on wellness, so let’s take a look at the best online wellness experiences Airbnb has to offer.

Valentina is an experienced yoga, pilates and dance teacher, as well as an art therapist. In her facial yoga class, you’ll learn all about facial acupressure to improve your circulation and exercises to tone your face whilst relaxing your mind. The session also incorporates ten minutes of meditation to leave you feeling in-tune with your body. Each class has capacity for up to ten people or you can arrange a private session for up to 29 participants.
This is a powerful, hour-long 1:1 session with Diana, who hosts a psychic radio show in Toronto and has been reading tarot cards professionally for over a decade. She’s received over 200 glowing reviews and guests claim to feel an instant connection, even over Zoom! This is a great way to explore your spiritual side and find inner peace during these difficult and uncertain times. This is one of my favorite online wellness experiences.
If staying home 24/7 is causing friction between you and your partner, Airbnb has online wellness experiences to help.
This session is designed for couples, although you could participate with a friend or family member that you live with. It’s a mindfulness and empathy practice that uses platonic touch and weight-sharing to help you reconnect with your loved one.
This is a deeply relaxing process that uses touch to boost the serotonin and dopamine levels in your brain, leaving you feeling happy and serene. This is perfect if being cooped up together 24/7 has created distance between you and your partner.
If you’re into natural beauty products, Airbnb has plenty of online wellness experiences that will prove suitable for you. Beatrice will teach you how to make natural facial and body scrubs using honey, oil, salt and sugar, as well as helping you to create healthy beauty habits for your particular skin care needs. You’ll be part of a group of up to six people or she accepts private groups of up to 100 – although I can only imagine that may be a little difficult!
During this 45 minute session you’ll chant an ancient mantra 108 times and learn handy breathwork tips, too. Aydra is a musician who uses spiritual practices to strengthen her body and mind, and bring her very best to the studio.
If you’ve been reading Your Luxe Travel for a while then you’ll know that I LOVE Bali. In fact, I plan to buy a property there one day in the not-too-distant future.
Although most of us are unable to travel to Bali right now and experience the island’s cultural wonders first hand, this online session will allow you to participate in a water blessing. This is one of the most exciting online wellness experiences on offer right now!
You’ll be guided by Made, a Balinese man who works to continue sharing Balinese religious philosophy with the rest of the world despite the current travel restrictions. He has been practicing for many years and is able to teach you a lot about Sanskrit and ceremonial offerings, some of which he will prepare during this session.
During this hour long group workshop yoga teacher Zoe will teach you how to use breathwork to transform your life. Breathwork can help you to:
Zoe is warm and welcoming and this affordable class is a great starting point for those who are new to wellness.
Many of us have struggled with our relationship with food during the pandemic. When you’re trapped at home all day, what is there to do but eat?
Momo is a practicing Japanese Zen Buddhist who will help you to eat mindfully in such a way that cultivates joy and gratitude. This session really helps you to appreciate the food on your plate and savor every bite.
Discover the magic of self-love on this amazing spell creation course by mental health counselor Jasmine. Jasmine has used the power of intent to transform her own lives and now helps others to do the same.
Self-love is the first step to creating a life that fills you with joy and gratitude, but it can be difficult to cultivate. This course is perfect for anyone who feels lost or is struggling with low self-esteem.
Stress management is more important than ever. This virtual art therapy class will help you let go of stress and find inner peace through the freedom of creative expression.
You’ll begin with a quick chat with the host, Valentina, to put you at ease and identify areas you’d like to work on. She’ll then guide you with prompts and questions as you use your art to express yourself.
