Benefits of participating in a Yoga Day or Retreat
- Connect with Nature
No matter the weather – this is a chance to connect with nature and all things natural. Leave behind the hustle and bustle of city life, immerse yourself in natural surroundings and take advantage of them.
- Disconnect from Technology
A retreat is a perfect opportunity to do a digital detox. Tell your family where you will be and mention that they may not hear from your for those days away. Mention that just for safety, if there is any form of emergency family will be notified; however, you will be in a safe environment.
- Take stock of Current Life
Going on retreat allows you to take a step back from the stresses of daily life and often after a few days of relaxing, the brain is clearer and important decisions can be made to help you re-evaluate.
- Deepen your Yoga Practice
The Yoga Retreat offers multiple classes per day. One can partake in every class without distractions of everyday life. Perhaps this means going deeper within on a mental and spiritual level, maybe it is on a physical level. Your choice!
- Spend time with Experts in the Field
Talking with the Yoga instructors; interacting in workshops with the presenters and sharing meals in the dining room with other experts, leads to deeper knowledge and solutions to unanswered questions.
- Surround Yourself with Positive Energy
Taking part in a yoga retreat allows you to leave behind all negative vibes and stress. On an organised retreat you don’t even have to think about what to eat next… it is all provided with uplifting positive vibes. You will be surrounded by positive thoughts, feelings, conversations and like-minded people.
A yoga retreat can be healing for your mental and physical health. Going on retreat can change your life, and help you to deal with any emotional and mental issues you may be having. It can also be healing for your body if you’ve experienced injury.
- Get a Taste of Living with Purpose
By choosing to take part (or not) in classes, workshops or events on the retreat; by partaking in healthy meals and activities; by experiencing love, compassion and kindness of others; by interacting with like-minded people – these are the things that can change your outlook on life!
- Introduction to new Healthy ways of Eating
On the retreat healthy vegetarian /vegan food is offered with an option of choices, but all considered for health and well-being. Meal and food ideas to take into life back at home are vast.
- Really Relax
A reason to go on a yoga retreat is to give yourself an opportunity to truly relax. Planning a vacation can be hard work, and sometimes it’s difficult to disconnect and really restore your reserves. On a yoga retreat, you can genuinely escape and have nothing to do but concentrate on the retreat.
