Reasons to go for a yoga retreat in Thailand
1. You will take your yoga to a different level.
Practicing yoga regularly is a great challenge for those very busy schedules. But when you are on a yoga retreat, chances are that you will have around two classes offered daily, which enables your progress in yoga.
2. You will get a whole new perspective.
Visiting a new place gives you an opportunity to see yourself and the world, in new light. Experiencing the unknown is a fast way of growing and learning.
3. You will actually meditate.
With extended free time, it is much easier to meditate. No boss reminding you about your deadlines or cell phone buzzing. On retreats, you feel a lot more natural for you breathe deeply while being present in the moment. ?The first time I actually was able to meditate was on a tantra yoga retreat in Chiang Mai, Thailand (website).
4. You will detox digitally.
One of the best things about yoga retreats is shutting off your technology. While most resorts have wifi, you do not feel like you need to constantly text, update Facebook, tweet or call friends. It feels great to unplug.
5. You will relax and destress.
Sometimes you have to go far from home to give yourself the permission to fully and truly relax. Being on a yoga retreat will allow you to listen more to your body, rest when you need to, and free yourself from stress.
6. You will eat well and without having done all the work.
For yoga retreats that are all inclusive, you have three delicious and healthy meals daily without having to go grocery shopping, find recipes, prepare the food, or clean up. Getting proper nutrition will never be this easier. They do all the work for you.
7. You will replace old habits.
The surest way of breaking a bad habit is replacing it with a healthy one. After getting out of your regular routine for even a week, you will be able to replace your unhealthy behaviors with conscious new habits that allow you to be your best self.
8. You will acquire new friends.
Undeniably, youll meet new individuals with the same interests as yourself. Even when you are alone, you have the chance to acquire friends from all around the world that you may end up knowing the rest of your entire life.
9. You will appreciate home.
Even a single week of a yoga retreat in Thailand (check out some offerings here: http://www.tantrayogathailand.com/retreats/) is always a nice experience, and you often go back home with a greater appreciation for life. You feel healthier, happier, and reenergized to get back into your daily routine with refreshed vigor. Heck, it may even feel fun.
