Have you ever wondered whether a yoga retreat is for you?
Perhaps you have often thought about it but never been in a position to take time off or had the extra cash flow?
Here are 5 of the top reasons why you should make sure that this year is finally the year that you take this long dreamed about yoga retreat.
1/ Firstly and most importantly, Because You are Worth It!
When was the last time you treated yourself, like really treated yourself? If it was something just last week, then you are one of the lucky ones! If it’s been awhile, then you need to start thinking about making yourself some ‘me’ time and when you can allow yourself to do this, you can then start to help and support those up around you, with inspiration, renewed energy, positivity and happiness.
So often we let great opportunities slip through our hands and I strongly believe that if you can (are physically able, have the financial freedom and have some free time) then what are you waiting for? By doing this for yourself, you actually do give back to all those around you.
2/ Time out for Yourself
There is a huge difference between going on holiday and going on retreat. Even the word itself tells us that it’s all about stepping back, going inwards, and allowing yourself to re-treat from your busy day to day routine.
Quite often holidays, especially in foreign countries can be more about figuring out how the new culture ticks, dealing with foreign exchange, bartering with locals and trying not to get ripped off on a day to day basis. Not so relaxing. On the flip side, retreats are simply about you, listening to your own needs at all times and just “being”, while everything else is taken care of. Sounds good doesn’t it?
At the very least, stepping away from your day-to-day life will leave you feeling refreshed, renewed, re-inspired, and deeply rested. Retreats can help you to gain clarity, seek for deeper truth, improve your yoga and meditation practice, unwind, possibly even find the answers you’ve been searching for and have a really good time just to reconnect.
3/ Deepen Your Practice
Whether you have been practicing yoga for a while, experienced its amazing benefits first hand and are keen for more, or maybe you’ve just heard all about it and are keen to experience the magic for yourself. It could even be that you have just started along your yoga journey and have caught the bug, or need a kick start to get you back on your mat. Whatever your reasons or level of yoga experience, a retreat will guide and support you along your path. There is always something for everyone.
4/ Detox Your Life
Being on retreat for at least a week is a great opportunity to become more aware of making healthy choices and being mindful of what we eat and how we feel after each meal. Yoga retreats have the best food, fresh, organic and delicious. It will nourish and cleanse your body from the inside out.
The main focus of a yoga retreat is often to help you to feel really, really good on all levels, so no matter what your initial reasons for going, a yoga retreat will leave you feeling cleansed, restored, re-inspired, recharged and reconnected.
5/ Meet Like-Minded Friends
The main concern I get most from people coming on a retreat for the first time is that they will be coming alone. They worry they’ll be the only one, when in fact 80-90% of people come on their own. On the other hand, the opportunity to meet like-minded people is one of the main draw cards for people who do regular retreats, as they can share their common interests and make life long friends.
Over the short space of a week strangers become friends, all inhibitions fall away, and you open yourself to sharing, learning, and growing from other like-minded yogis and their life experiences.
