Six Reasons Why A Yoga Retreat Might Be What You Need Right Now

Six reasons why a yoga retreat might be what you need right now 


There comes a time when we’re feeling overworked, stressed and wiped out from city life or long working hours. Thank goodness for vacations, they are what we work towards. But when we get there do we truly switch off, not just mentally, but digitally? Between #bragging our holiday snaps or messaging friends, is there enough headspace to stop and really clear our mind?

Yoga retreats are the new wave of holidays, ridding us of all distractions and allowing us to fully relax.




Here are 6 reasons why this is exactly what you need right now:

1. Focus on you:

A yoga holiday is a rare opportunity to focus on ourselves again, think about our passions, overcome fears and understand what is stopping us from living our life to the fullest. Yoga gurus call this living completely in the present. Getting away from everyday distractions helps us to have a deeper focus on just that.

2. Leave it all behind:

Time spent in a retreat provides a much-needed break from the usual daily grind, helping to reset our mental, physical and emotional well-being. There is, of course, the added plus of the stunning surroundings and sunshine being a welcomed backdrop to the spiritual journey.

3. Do a digital detox:

Many of us (whether we care to admit it or not!) are addicted to our digital devices. At ONEWORLD retreats in Bali, guests are encouraged to turn them off, to help them reconnect with their own self again. If being away from your phone makes you feel woozy then don’t worry, this is optional, however, the benefits of switching off are endless and include better sleep, a healthier body rhythm, and more focus.

4. A retreat can boost your business or career!

If you feel like your business is getting stagnant and could do with a fresh injection of energy, heading to a retreat can be a profound way to make a big change happen. You’ll be able to take a step back, reflect and re-evaluate your career, looking at it from a fresh perspective. Not only this, but you’ll feel re-energised and ready to take on whatever challenges come your way.

5. Get to the next level in your yoga practice:

Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, a retreat is a great opportunity to experience yoga in an intimate environment and under the guidance of an experienced teacher. It’s a chance to get away from your usual yoga class or living room and strengthen your level, or learn from scratch, away from the stress of day-to-day life.

6. Learn how to meditate:

Many people know about the huge benefits of meditation, but it can be a tricky technique to grasp, especially for those with a busy home / work life. A retreat gives you the time to really master meditation in a peaceful place. You can then take this skill home and wipe out any sign of holiday blues with some calm spiritual mantra.

Whatever stage you are at in yoga, a break from the norm could be just what you need to find balance, energy and a more grounded focus on life.
