We spend most of our time regretting the past and stressing about the future losing ourselves all the while. Our mind needs a break to relax so as to amplify the concentration and reduce the perceived stress and anxiety. Occasionally, we can afford to spend time on ourself. It is when Yoga retreats come into the picture. Yoga aids the reducion of stress level and increases concentration. Yoga helps to lower the levels of stress hormones such as cortisol.

 It wouldn't hurt to add a little fun with yoga, would it? Here are some ways in which you can combine adventure with yoga retreat to make it more interesting.


1. YOGA + DANCING

Somewhere along the way, with the increasing popularity of gym workouts, we have lost our move groove. When you free your body and mind and let itself glide fluidly, your movements improve and the stress decreases. The way you sit, stand, walk, and sleep affects your flexibility, strength, and overall fitness. Combining yoga retreat with dance strengthens, stretches and tones your muscles. With that trained mind-body instruments the possibilities of what can be created and experienced are tremendous and miraculous. Dance is a medium of growth, healing, and transformation; it's a union of polarities: earth and spirit in which transcend-DANCE can be experienced. To book, dancing and yoga retreat, check out….

2. YOGA + TREKKING

Trekking has its advantages. Some are breaking away from the shackles of daily drudgery, finding peace in the mountains, enjoying with family and friends, experiencing something different and connecting with nature. It adds up to your fitness when you climb and what more reason is needed to combine it with yoga? Yoga and trekking are the resemblances of body and soul. Going up a mountain and stretching your body in the utter peace with nature’s voice is one of the wonderful highlights of yoga retreat combined with trekking. Traveling changes you and makes you into a whole new person. Yoga replenishes your soul with love and kindness and leads your spirit to freedom of soul. Combining them both renders a result which is quite extraordinary in its own ways. 

3. YOGA + SURFING

We are constantly surrounded by city noises, honking vehicles and the sound from electronic devices which generates a high level of information for your mind to process. When you are around water your brain doesn’t have to work as hard and you feel a sense of calmness. Imagine sitting on a surfboard while you’re calm and quiet, meditating, surrounded by water, listening to it gently lapping around you and waiting for the next set of waves to roll through. Yoga retreat combined with surfing helps you get in tune with nature. To book, surfing and yoga retreat, check out….

4. YOGA + MUSIC

Music is one of the most relaxing ways to forget everything and sink into ourselves. Soothing Music gives an elated feeling. There are three syllables used in yoga. Akaram, makaram, and ukaram. Combined they form the sound ‘Aum’. Music is integrated into yoga. The melodious songs combined with yoga gives a soothing feeling to the body, will leave you relaxed and thoughtless.

5. YOGA + Winter Sports

Yoga isn’t just sitting on a mat at your home and doing exercise with regulated breathing. It isn't just for people from warm places. For the adventurous who want to explore and discover, Yoga can combine yoga and skiing, snowboarding, sledding, snowshoeing, and hiking. Yoga retreats with Hot springs or a hot tub help you relax and soothe those aching muscles. If you have plenty of time to explore with guided snowshoeing, cross country skiing and winter walking, complement it with the yoga practice in silence and stillness of the white beautiful snow

6. YOGA + AYURVEDA

Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of natural healing with its roots from Vedic scriptures of India. At yoga retreats like these, it isn’t primarily just about perfecting backbends and handstands. A team comprised of an ayurvedic doctor, a spiritual leader and a hatha master help you see the importance of a holistic yogic lifestyle. The satwik diet system is also modified accordingly so as to impart a calm and wise nature to the people.

7. YOGA + SAILING

To enjoy the calmness of the sea with the wind at your face and the breeze brushing against your cheeks is one of the best experiences you can ever get. To enjoy the warmth of the sun while you close your eyes and breathe slowly while sinking in your inner self is a splendid experience. It leaves you refreshed and stress-free as your mind will not be having much to process. To book, sailing and yoga retreat, check out….

A healthy mind goes hand in hand with a healthy body.

9. YOGA + FOOD
