WHAT IS YOGA RETREAT
It is an opportunity to explore yourself through your practice. We are a busy people these days, with all the distractions and diversions that surround us, it is hard to look inward, relax, and fully take advantage of what yoga has to offer. A yoga retreat offers you the chance to get away from the normal routines and customs of everyday life, which allows for a valuable perspective onto ourselves.
WHAT DO I DO AT A RETREAT
Usually, we will get up around 7:00 or 7:30 and do yoga. The program is designed to fit the needs of those attending. Afterwards you will have a delicious breakfast and get ready for your daily trip to the mountains. During the day you can choose to follow the group activities or do something by yourself. In the afternoon there is another yoga session meant to bring relaxation of your body and mind. If you want you can skip yoga and relax in the jakuzzi and indulge afternoon tea with home made cookies. There will be time for journaling, personal growth and partner exercises to get to know each other better. The afternoon is spent either in a group adventure or on your own. In the evening after dinner you can enjoy workshops in the art of origami, mandala drawings and many more. The teachers are always available for questions & help with your personal practice. Come with an open mind and an adventurous spirit and you will not be disappointed!

WHAT IS YOGA
Yoga is a system of physical and mental practices that originated more than 6,000 years ago. Its purpose is to assist each one of us to achieve our highest potential, improve our health and discover joy through our connection with the mind, body and spirit. With yoga we can improve the quality of our lives by reducing the levels of stress and fatigue we carry in our bodies. We can live longer and better together.
ARE THESE RETREATS FOR EVERYONE
Yes! You do not need to be a yoga rock-star or flexible like a pretzel to fully enjoy a retreat. Retreats often vary in their specific yoga styles, and amenities, but they are often more similar than not when it comes to accommodating all levels of practitioners. The purpose of yoga is to get to know yourself, realize both your strengths and weaknesses and work toward improvement. All the programs are modified according the individual characteristics and needs of the client.
CAN I GO ON A RETREAT BY MYSELF
Most do! Yoga retreats can be great for couples, friends, and families, but the majority of retreat takers go solo. The reason is that yoga retreats are by definition a get away. A retreat away from the norm. People who attend yoga retreats tend to be respectful, community-driven, and generally well centered, so its a great place to make new friends. It also allows one to find their own grove again, or just relish in being in their own personal space.
DO I HAVE TO PARTICIPATE IS EVERYTHING SCHEDULED
