Yoga is the tool that teaches us how to cure what is ailing us, and to learn how to live with what we cannot cure. We need to take a moment out of the chaos we call life and make time for our mental wellness. A yoga retreat to a beautiful destination could be just what your soul needs to refuel.
Run away from the loud noises of the city, the constant ringing of your cell phone, the constant hum of your computer and go deep into seclusion to a land of beauty and sandy beaches. Look for that destination where the temperature is at a constant level of perfection, culture and people create an enticing atmosphere, and the local food will tease your taste buds. A yoga retreat is the perfect escape to find some peace and mind and quiet.
During your stay at the yoga retreat you will be immersed in practice of Hatha, Ashtanga or Vinyasa Flow styles of yoga which are all easily practiced by any level of experience. Integrative yoga therapy classes are also on the schedule if you pick the correct timing with special host yogis and the time they share their experience and mastered skills of yoga teaching.
During your time away from the routine chaos enjoy the setting and take care of your inner self with a daily massage or you can even treat yourself to some special treatments or purification programs that are offered for those that are staying at the yoga retreat. If you just want to get time to sit and relax in the afternoon with a good book there are hammocks all over the site to choose from. Take a herbal tea or freshly squeezed juice with you while you relax and drift with the warm breeze. Come get away and treat yourself, your body, your mind and spirit amongst a beautiful and peaceful setting and recharge your energies.
Yoga teaching is usually done in the mornings and start early at 7:30am. Your class session may last up to 2 hours, some free style and some guided class sessions depending on what style and the expertise level in the group. There may be additional classes in the afternoons for those that do not venture off on activities that are offered in the area. The Integrative Yoga therapy retreats also offer pranayama, Yoga Nidra, guided meditation, Chakra Therapy and Holistic healing.
