There is something pretty special about going away on a yoga retreat. I’m recently back from my annual retreat in the World Heritage listed mountain rainforest near where I’m lucky to live – two nights, barely 44 hours, but long enough to relax, refresh and rejuvenate. Bliss.
From brief breaks away to week-long (or longer) retreats in exotic locales, a yoga retreat gifts us time and space to stop, be still, to release and to take our yoga practice to a whole new level.
I am so grateful for the chance to retreat (especially to hubby for keeping the home-fires burning with the kids), even as I dream of a longer, more exotic version (Bali is calling) one day.
If time, finances and commitments don’t allow you to get away, here’s how to create a sense of sanctuary where you are – in your own space and in the natural spaces around you.
