5 Reasons Why A Yoga Retreat Should Be Your Next Holiday

Although we may be a little biased, we truly believe yoga retreats are one of the most exciting, rewarding and enjoyable holidays you can take. Here are five reasons a yoga retreat should be your next holiday…

You can take the time to focus on yourself

A yoga holiday gives you the time and opportunity to truly reflect on yourself and your own needs. You are not beholden to anyone else. When you’re on a yoga retreat, you don’t have to worry about anyone else’s wants and needs. Not your boss, not your friends and family, not even your pets. You can allow yourself to be selfish on a yoga holiday – something that is mostly frowned upon within our regular day-to-day lives. But there’s nothing wrong with being a little selfish every now and then. On a yoga retreat you immerse yourself in an experience that is designed to connect you with yourself and fulfill you – and we all need that sometimes.

Yoga retreats are more than just physical journeys

A yoga retreat is more than just getting away from the office and your home. It’s a spiritual journey as well as a physical one. Practising yoga a few times a week in a studio or in your home is fantastic, but after the hour is up, you’re straight back to your regular life. A yoga retreat gives you the opportunity to extend this experience and sustain its benefits. And by exploring what’s inside yourself and forming a deeper connection with your authentic self, it affords you the chance to connect more deeply and directly with your surroundings.

You join a community

Yoga holidays are very personal experiences where you get to connect with yourself, just you and your mat. However, you also get to join a community that is all seeking the same balance and fulfilment as you. During a yoga retreat you can connect and share experiences, helping each other process a little more. It’s a powerful force when people come together in the name of balance and wellness.

It acts as a long-term reset

A holiday is a great little break when you can relax and unwind. But for many, once they’re back to regular life, the benefits of a holiday are easily forgotten and it feels like you never went away! Yoga holidays are different. During your yoga retreat you develop techniques that you are more likely to continue to apply; helping you shift your way of thinking and giving you a long-term reset that you carry with you through life.

You’ll fall further in love with yoga

You think you love yoga now? Just wait until you’ve been on a yoga retreat. Yoga focused holidays allow you to fall deeper in love with yoga and it’s something that you’ll take with you when you’re back in the studio or practising at home. Yoga retreats give you the time and space to focus on what you love most about yoga and we guarantee you’ll leave with a feeling you’ve never had before.
