There are many reasons why people attend a yoga retreat:
• to deepen their practice;
• to recover from an illness;
• to detox;
• to rest and recharge;
• to ‘get away’ from a hectic life.
There are proven benefits, too, in terms of mental and physical health.
But perhaps the most important reason for embarking on a yoga retreat is about reconnecting with yourself and making a commitment to your own wellbeing. With a teacher on hand there is no rushing to and from class; you have the chance to slow down, ask questions, and totally immerse yourself in exquisite self-care. Just a few days of nurturing, rest and good nutrition can make all the difference and set you on a path to a new, healthier way of being.
