We live in a fast world where we hardly get time to take a holiday. Ask yourself when the last time you took off from work to go on a holiday was? When was the last time you were close to nature? If you find it hard to recall you need a getaway from your daily yoga routine and give yourself the freedom to unwind, relax and recharge.
