Yoga Retreats

Yoga retreat is a combination of yoga practice and vacation. Experts from the University of Pittsburgh and Radboud University both said that people got more energy and felt more fulfilled a life on vacation. When you add yoga to your vacation it becomes more rejuvenating and revitalizing.

Most people take a vacation to get away from the hectic city life. But the average vacation time for workers in the US is 14 days, that doesn’t leave much leverage for going anywhere and really unwinding from your daily life. So we need to add some extra events to our vacations. That’s why yoga lovers are increasingly spending their hard-earned holidays to deepen their yoga knowledge by combining vacation on exotic places with intensive yoga programs. And they’ll go to any length to dive deeper into the enthralling field of yoga. They want to obtain a deeper understanding of yoga during their next vacation.The result – Yoga Retreats.

Most of the yoga retreats usually take place in a very beautiful and energetic environment to fully charge and then restore balance in body, mind & soul. Retreat locales are as varied as the yoga postures, ranging from expensive resorts that provide celebrity instructors and bonus activities like language classes, alternative healing, sunset cruises, and tequila tastings, to rustic lodges where the focus is limited to yoga and inner journey.

Some retreats have opportunities for meditation, energetic therapy and massages. Some of the yoga retreats offer free time for relaxation or body massage while some others offer snorkeling, hiking and surfing. Some also offer alternative treatments like Aqua therapy, Thai massages, Ayurveda, and Reiki. There are some special yoga retreats which offer fire-dancing, swimming and aerial exercises.

A true Yoga retreat is not a destination; rather it’s a transformational journey, an opportunity to rediscover your inner self, an amazing way to reconnect with the nature.
