Yoga is a thing
No better way to focus and go deeper in your yoga practice than on a yoga retreat.
2 to 4 hours of yoga postures will give you so much more time than in a regular class. This means that you can really zoom into certain things.
And, if you have never done yoga before, a yoga retreat is an excellent way to dive in! You can truly experience what yoga can mean for you.
Some retreats, like the Revealing Vajra yoga retreats, will have you experience different yoga styles to really explore yoga as such.
There’s an interest in meditation
Yoga and Meditation go together and on most yoga retreats, there will be enough time set apart to zoom into meditation.
On some retreats, it is a very limited amount of time, on other retreats; meditation takes up as much time as the yoga postures. It all depends on the intention of the retreat.
You love great food
Vegetarian, vegan, gluten or dairy free: a yoga retreat is usually the perfect place to experiment with healthy food ideas and the impact they can have.
Simply cutting out an overload of coffee, processed foods, alcohol and sugar will make you instantly feel completely different in body and mind.
Wonderful environments make you feel at ease
Roof top yoga with a view on the High Atlas Mountains is simply an unforgettable experience. Most retreat venues are little sanctuaries that make you feel at ease and relaxed, almost on arrival.
A bit of structure can’t hurt
On retreats, you tend to follow the flow of the retreat schedule, which gives you a perfect opportunity to check in with your habits. Examining which habits serve you and discovering the habits that don’t exactly serve you.
Best case, everything is nicely organized for you on a yoga retreat so you can be 100% worry free and you don’t have to arrange anything yourself.
It’s just time for a break!
For most people, the main reason to go on a yoga retreat is that it is simply time for a break.
Maybe, it has been a while that you have truly felt confident, happy and relaxed, and a yoga retreat tends to deliver exactly that.

It’s brilliant to have like minded people around
Yoga retreats typically attract like minded people with similar professions and interests. If you have the pleasure of going on a retreat which has an international group coming together, you can engage with people from all around the globe.

Exploring a new culture is a massive bonus

Me, myself and I
