Anyone else in need of a relaxing away with the girls? Of course, you are! I mean, who isn't? That being said, there are so many options that when all you wanna do is get out of town, it can be hard to pin something solid down, amirite? Like, finding something all the girls can agree to in a hurry is beyond difficult, I know.

Well, get ready 'cuz this amazing wine, yoga, and painting retreat (yeah, you read that right) might be (okay, it is) the perfect thing.

Oh, and it also happens to be in the beautiful, breathtaking Greece. Pack your bags, ladies!

For eight days, you and your squad can align your body and mind during yoga, sit back and paint, and gorge yourselves with wine and chocolate. I don't know about you, but I need all of that ASAP.

With wine, chocolate, painting, and yoga, this makes for the ultimate girls' trip!

You don't have to be artistically inclined to attend the retreat, either. According to the website, even those who have never painted before will have fun and leave feeling accomplished.

Which is great because I might be the worst painter to ever exist.

Symi is a small island known for having amazing architecture and beautiful blue waters, on top of being super peaceful.

Seriously, doesn't this look like a painting? You mean, I can really come and see this IRL? Think about how great your Insta would be...

Doing yoga with a backdrop as incredible as this one will entice even those who haven't ever attempted a tree pose.

AKA me. I don't have a lot of experience but I'm more than willing to give it a go if I can do it on an island in Greece.

Can't get to Greece? There are a ton of other options out there — like the Summer Solstice Yoga Retreat in Sonoma, California.

Those who want to make a trip to Europe (and I mean, who wouldn't?) could also opt for the Yoga Wine Tasting Retreat located in Mallorca, Spain.

Squad winery tours, a trip to the beach, delicious and local food, and accommodations at a historic mansion which happens to be surrounded by gorgeous nature. Casual.

You can do sun salutations in the actual sun, which sounds like an absolute dream IMO.

Much better than doing them near a window in a cramped apartment like you do at home.

This four-night retreat focuses on "raising consciousness and opening up your senses" through dynamic yoga and good wine. Where do I sign up?

Being on the beach and enveloped in nature, this retreat makes for the ultimate "unplug" trip with friends.

Considering how much we all use our phones and computers, a good massage and beachside meditation might be everything we need to reboot and refresh.

There are delicious, clean meals served at the resort, like this dragonfruit bowl and fresh fruit.

That way everyone will feel better about getting wine drunk all week long! Life is all about balance after all. Plus, do you see how Instagrammable this food is? Can't unplug entirely, fam.

Not being dramatic, but drinking a glass of wine with the besties while watching the sunset in Europe is all I need in life.

What more could you ask for? This so beats another boring ol' cruise like we did last year!

Who wouldn't want to attend a Meditation and Yoga Retreat in Bali? I'll go for the beaches alone!

Instagram | @shantitoya

This seven-night getaway includes daily yoga, organic plant-based meals, a massage, and more, along with a chance to bum it out on the infamous Bali beaches.

Yoga is done as a group at the Shanti Toya Ashram, which is located a half hour from the beach.

So after spending the morning aligning your chakras, you and the rest of the girl gang can take a dip in the ocean and sunbathe.

Of course, the ultimate wine and yoga retreat might be in Italy...

There are also excursions to the fabulous neighboring cities of Florence, Lucca, and Pisa, along with an organic wine tasting.

Can you imagine how delectable traditional, made-from-scratch Italian food is? My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Oh, and the week concludes with a celebration that involves two of your favorite things: pizza and prosecco.
