Get more from your all inclusive – 4 ways a yoga break will leave you truly recharged

The hum of traffic surrounds you. The heat of the city is inescapable and you’re struggling to read your map because of the glare of the sun.

“I’ve got three more sites to see today” you think as you head off to the Colosseum.

“Then I can have a break and relax with a pizza and a beer” that’s odd, you think.

You came away on holiday to relax but instead you’re all stressed out and looking forward to the end of the day. You might as well be back at work.

“This isn’t a very relaxing holiday” you say aloud, maybe you should have gone on that yoga break instead.

A calm retreat of like-minded individuals all wanting to truly switch off from the world and recharge. No barrelling around Rome or Paris, but a secluded yoga holiday in the hills. Now that sounds relaxing.

Yoga breaks can be truly life changing experiences and they don’t cost an arm or a leg either. If you’re looking for something different to your standard all inclusive you should consider a yoga holiday with friends or your partner.

If you’re still unconvinced about the benefits of a yoga break we’ve listed the 4 ways a yoga holiday will leave you truly recharged below.


You don’t need to worry about trips to the supermarket

There’s no denying that sometimes it’s nice to go self catered on a holiday. You can pop to the shops like a local, cook up a storm in your self-catered rental and really feel like a local.

Whilst this is fun if you’re in the mood to go hunting for food it can also be a really stressful experience. If you want your holiday to be a relaxing experience and stress free adventure then a yoga holiday might be a better fit for you.

Yogalife retreats are all inclusive. That means all your catering needs are looked after. You don’t have to think about cooking at the end of the day (After all the yoga you’ll be doing, why would you want to cook). You can focus on resting, recharging, and working on your yoga game.


You’ll detoxify and glow from the inside out

A yoga retreat isn’t a party holiday, far from it. It’s a chance to give yourself and your body a break from alcohol and focus on eating balanced, healthy, plant-based meals.

A week or two in Ibiza might be fun but you’ll probably leave more frazzled than when you arrived. Yoga breaks have the opposite effect on their guests. Allowing your body a chance to detox, repair, and heal will have you leaving your yoga retreat a glowing beacon of calm.


You’re with a collective of like-minded yoga lovers

Hectic crowds, boozy parties, chanting. All can be par for the course on a normal beach holiday. Even a sophisticated city break could see you harassed by pushy market sellers, congested traffic, and frantic crowds.

For a truly recharging holiday it’s best to get out of the cities and tourist resorts and to a yoga retreat you can enjoy with other like minded individuals. That way you can rest easy in the knowledge that you’re surrounded by friends and peers all working towards the same goal. A relaxing, transformative holiday.


You’ll get to experience some truly unspoilt beauty spots

You can’t have a yoga break in the middle of a packed city or on a beach full of tourists. Yoga holiday’s need calm. You want to be in a secluded, serene location where you can focus on yourself and yoga.

This means yoga retreats are often located off the beaten track, far away from tourist hotspots and in the parts of countries most foreigners won’t visit. This means you can see some real unspoilt natural beauty and relax in a calming location truly undisturbed.

Could a Yoga Retreat Change Your Life?

Have you been considering booking a yoga retreat? A yoga holiday may just be the things to help you unwind, destress and refocus after this chaotic and stressful year we’ve all had. Yoga retreats are more than just a holiday. We truly believe that they can change your life. Here’s three reasons why.

1. You can learn to love yourself

Yoga retreats are the best place to rediscover yourself. Our everyday lives leave us caught up in so many things, from friendships and social commitments to family life and work. And because we get so caught up in all these things, we don’t really get the time and energy to focus on ourselves. But yoga retreats are all about you. Whilst you’re here you focus on only yourself and you can really learn to love yourself both inside and out. Yoga holidays help you to truly know yourself better, inspire you, and make you a happier person. It’s this shift in mindset that you bring back home with you and hopefully informs your everyday life. Having a clearer state of mind and a more mindful and balanced sense of self can be invaluable.

2. You can learn to let go of the past

Many people seek out yoga retreats to heal pain caused by a past experience. Even those of us who aren’t dealing with a specific bad situation can find ourselves stuck in the past; bringing negativity and heavy baggage with us that we carry around every single day. But this makes the present so much harder to enjoy. Yoga retreats help you let go of your past; allowing you to live a more carefree and forgiving life with a brand new perspective.

3. You can learn to embrace fear

As we get older, we often run away from our fears. Confronting them often doesn’t seem like an option but a yoga retreat serves as a safe space to embrace your fear, harness the energy behind that fear and remove it from your life. Understanding the fear is the first step and through introspection plus learning to let go of the past, you can take hold of the fear, embrace it and get out from under its control.

If you’re thinking that a yoga retreat sounds like just the type of holiday you need, we have a range of yoga retreats available to book. Taking place all across the world, including Europe and India, our yoga holidays are one of our favourite parts about YogaLife.

At Yogalife we are focused on supporting you, which is why we can confidently offer you a safe and worry-free yoga holiday, with booking flexibility and Covid measures in place. Contact us to find out more about any of our retreats.

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.

Why choose a YogaLife yoga retreat?

When you come along on a YogaLife retreat you not only get to experience yoga teachers of the highest calibre but also highly qualified and experienced personal trainers. 

We know physical and mental health go hand in hand so whilst you’re on the retreat you’ll be served up nutritious and of course delicious food crafted by expert chefs and nutritionists. That way you’re set up perfectly for a day of yoga and you can replenish your energy at the end of the day.

One of the unique things about our yoga retreats is that we provide inner cell health checks on every single trip.

At YogaLife we are focused on supporting you, which is why we can confidently offer you a safe and worry-free yoga holiday, with booking flexibility and COVID measures in place.

Why Yoga Retreats are Perfect for Solo Travelers

Whether you’re a seasoned solo traveler or it’s your first time going solo, a holiday on your own can be a bit daunting. But it can also be so rewarding! If you’re thinking about taking a solo trip, you can’t choose a more perfect holiday than a yoga retreat. Here’s why:

You won’t be the only solo traveller there

Some people may feel self-conscious about the idea of travelling alone but many people attend yoga retreats by themselves so you’re unlikely to be the only one. The nature of yoga retreats attracts solo travellers and they’re designed to appeal to those looking for a solo trip.

You can make the trip your own

One of the great things about travelling by yourself is that you don’t have to consider what anyone else wants to do! Sometimes it’s good to be selfish. Yoga retreats have an itinerary available but byou can pick and choose what you want to do and you don’t have to coordinate with anyone else – your trip is just that. Your trip.

You can meet new friends

With so many other like-minded people on your yoga retreat, you can meet people with similar interests and world views and bond over your shared perspectives. A yoga retreat is the ideal holiday to form friendships that may last the length of your trip, or may last longer!

Everything is planned for you

One of the most stressful aspects of travelling solo is having to plan everything out by yourself. But the great thing about yoga retreats is that everything is planned for you! When you book your place you can relax knowing that your accommodation, flights and excursion is sorted out on your behalf. Even your food is taken care of! All you need to do is show up and enjoy your retreat.

Our main aim of the Yogalife worldwide yoga retreats is to bring amazing people together to some of the most unique and beautiful venues around the world; all whilst trying to change lives! Contact us to find out more information about any one of our fabulous retreats.
