Calling a Timeout: A Day on a Yoga Retreat
An inside look at what happens during a retreat
Retreating from our daily routine and taking the time for ourselves to reset and recharge is one of the best ways to balance out the packed and buzzing lives we lead.
It seems that the idea of a Yoga holiday appeals to increasingly more people and for a variety of reasons - from releasing stress in a quiet and meditative atmosphere, to moving back into balance, and meeting like-minded people from all over the world. Those new to the practice of Yoga are curious about the yogic lifestyle, while the established practitioners are eager to take their practice to the next level.
Above all, a Yoga retreat in a gorgeous location satisfies both a love for Yoga and a passion for travelling as well as a desire to participate in mindful and respectful tourism.
Here are some impressions from a day in the retreat-life by Sandra D. Bianco, from her recent trip to India to study with the Ashtanga Yoga master John Scott!
Sandra is the founder of our beloved partner, Gaia Yoga Shala in Zagreb.
