27 Jul 10 Reasons To Go On A Yoga Retreat
Going to my first yoga retreat two years ago was a major turning point in my life. So much so that now I lead yoga adventures for others around the world in wonderful places like Italy, Bali, Chile. These are truly transformative experiences and I believe that anyone who enjoys a lifestyle of health and wellness can greatly benefit from a yoga retreat.
HERE ARE MY 10 REASONS TO GO TO A YOGA RETREAT:
1. DEEPEN YOGA PRACTICE
If you struggle to find time to practice yoga in your everyday life then the benefit of going on a yoga retreat is being able to practice every day without distraction. Even the most seasoned yoga practitioner can deepen their practice on retreat and aim to reach the next level.
2. DISCONNECT FROM TECHNOLOGY
Not every retreat is a digital detox, but you can make it that way if you want to. Going on a retreat vacation is a perfect excuse to disconnect from technology and get back to basics. So many jobs now require us to be on call and connected 24/7. Even if they don’t we can end up spending a large amount of our free time on social media and glued to screens. Be in the moment and away from digital distractions by going on a yoga retreat!
3. TAKE TIME FOR YOURSELF
We give so much of ourselves in our daily lives that it can be difficult to really take a moment just for ourselves. While you can meet some amazing people on retreat, you can also use it as an opportunity to be alone. Wellness travel is all about taking that time for yourself, and is a top reason to go on a retreat!
4. SURROUND YOURSELF WITH POSITIVE ENERGY
One of the best benefits of going on a yoga retreat is taking a vacation full of positive energy! On retreat, you’ll surround yourself with positive thoughts and feelings. No need to worry about any vacation stress, just embrace the positives vibes coming your way.
5. DISCOVER A NEW PERSPECTIVE
Attending a yoga retreat can give you a new perspective, whether it’s about your own life or through learning about a new culture. You never know what you can learn from others that can affect your future choices, or make you see your own circumstances in a different light.
6. PRACTICE MINDFULNESS
A big reason to go on a yoga retreat is to finally be conscious of the moment you’re in and increase mindfulness. We can often find ourselves living in the future as we plan ahead, and in the past as we feel with what has happened throughout our lives. On a yoga retreat, you can finally just BE.
7. TRAVEL WITH PURPOSE
Going on a yoga retreat gives you a reason to travel with a purpose. Amore yoga retreats are about giving back to choosen communities as much as they are a time for personal growth, which is a fantastic added benefit.
8. HAVE A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE
Every retreat is different, even if you return to the same place. The other people and your frame of mind at the time will never be the same again. Booking a yoga retreat will always result in a unique experience, and each retreat will be different as you continue to grow within yourself.
9. RETURN REFRESHED
Have you been on a vacation and come home feeling like you need another one? A yoga retreat might have you booking your next vacation as soon as you’re back, but it’ll only be because you’re so relaxed and refreshed that you’ll just want to do it again!
10. YOU DESERVE IT
Treat yourself to an experience you really deserve, by going on a yoga retreat. This is a vacation all about YOU, and with the stresses of daily life, you deserve it.
