5 reasons to take a yoga retreat
1. Take time for yourself
A yoga retreat is a great way to take time for yourself!
Isn’t it obvious that holidays should be a time to be with yourself and recharge batteries? Well, we tend to forget that. Many times in holidays we end up not having so much time for ourselves. Either because we travel with friends, or are running the whole time to see all the touristic attractions, often we end up even more tired.
In a yoga retreat, the entire goal is to be with yourself, to take care of your needs and recharge your energies.
The feeling of claiming time for yourself, of looking inside and spend energy with your own needs, will definitely make you feel amazing.
2. Go offline
You can find an offline yoga retreat, but most places offer internet. Despite that, you are working online, you can consider a offline option and truly forget about all the work (yoga will teach you that it’s ok to do tat).
In any case, it’s a great opportunity to put the cellphone on the side, and reduce your time on social media networks and work (you know, since we have cellphones, we basically never stop working). This is essential if you want to give yourself some of your energy.
Holidays and workout? Doesn’t it sound fantastic? Well, it probably depends on your relationship with physical exercise, which can also be improved if it hasn’t been so great lately.
Usually, a yoga retreat has both a good amount of physical exercise and amazing healthy food, which will only help you feel even better after these days.
4. Meet incredible people
While some of us are already surrounded by our yogi friends, the fact is that usually we keep our old friends and the interest in a spiritual, self-knowledge vibe is not always welcomed.
In any case, in a yoga retreat, for sure you’ll find incredible people, with whom you share interests. You can learn and teach, share and discover how other people are also spending their own life journey.
Usually, these moments create friendships for life and a good amount of inspiration.
5. Discover stunning destinations
Have you seen the crazy beautiful places where most of these retreats are? Stunning is the only word we can think about, but it’s not enough. In the middle of a jungle, by the beach, on the mountains, the options are as many as you can think of.
You won’t spend the whole time in the yoga mat, there will be outdoor activities and the feeling of gratitude towards life and this amazing world will only have space to grow. It’s a promise!
