Screw men. Lolol, not really, but just a tiny bit, still. This 2020, all I want is to gather with soul sisters and practice mindfulness away from men in a women’s retreat where I can let my hair down and my inner Wild Woman run free. There’s something extremely empowering and magical with letting your barriers down with other women in a safe space and explore your true potential. Naturally, the most fitting place to do this is in the safe confine of a women’s retreat. So today I wanted to present to you the best women’s retreats in time for 2020.
Friends, lovers, random people you meet in the park — there’s nothing quite like the bonding experience of partner yoga poses. And with a second lockdown looming and people looking for things to do at home, these yoga poses for two people will give you an afternoon of fun and a good stretch.
Since I get asked this question on the regular, I thought of presenting you with this “best yoga retreat 2020” roundup post. Yoga retreats I have been either visiting or dreaming of visiting, retreats for all budgets, from luxury yoga retreats abroad to more affordable ones nearby. What do you think is the best yoga retreat in the world?
If you’re looking for a yoga retreat in Greece, I’ve got you covered. For this guide, I have handpicked the best Greece currently has to offer in terms of health, wellness and yoga getaways.
For yoga retreats, Greece is one of my top picks; not only do I love visiting the Mediterranean countries, but Greece has it all — island life, great food, and all that ancient culture! I have found that I often want a little more than just yoga when on retreat, and like to tick off multiple boxes by either combining it with another activity or visiting a place that has an interesting history.
One of my favourite ways to learn more about something is to watch a documentary about it. I’m a visual person so the movie format works well for me, plus it’s MUCH quicker than reading a book. Yoga movies have been an essential source for teaching me more about this rich tradition and amazing practice, that has become such a central part of my life. So many interesting movies about yoga have been made in the last few years, and quite a few of them are available on Netflix. There are a few older ones that I think are worth watching too, and although some are a little bit harder to get hold of, if you are interested in learning more about the yoga tradition I have found them to be super informative.
Having some extra time on your hands? Did you know online yoga teacher training courses were a thing? That’s right, Yoga Alliance recently approved fully remotely obtained YTTs as accepted for registration with them (which is a prerequisite to be able to teach). Since it’s a relatively new business, the prices are still super low when compared to other YTTs and an amazing opportunity for yogis on a budget. The catch is you have to finish it before June 30th, 2020! So get on it!
I (re)discovered yoga in the midst of an internal personal crisis while far far away and very lonely. Incidentally, as I was backpacking through South-East Asia and moving constantly, doing all sorts of online yoga course and watching yoga movies were my favourite to do on the go out of my hotel rooms. They gave me tools to cope better and find the inner strength to push through. I don’t know about you, but I can certainly draw some parallels with that’s happening right now.
The Yoga Retreat Thailand trend is here to stay. And escaping for yoga retreats in Thailand mid-Winter is the perfect solo adventure.
Dreaming of Thailand, sizzling street food and the smell of chili in the air, bustling night markets and beautiful beaches? I sure as hell am. I think it’s safe to say Thailand evokes more or less the same few idyllic things for everyone. But one thing that’s currently gaining popularity is the Yoga Retreat Thailand trend. Escaping for yoga retreats during your Thailand itinerary mid-Winter is a great solo adventure and the perfect way to experience those magical holiday vibes you’ve been craving, but with a restful and invigorating twist of a health holiday, you won’t forget.
Have you become so passionate and dedicated about yoga that you now wish to turn your passion into a career by taking a yoga teacher training? I can’t blame you, been there, done that. I did my yoga instructor training in Goa, India, back in 2015, and although I took a different path after and did not end up teaching, it was truly a transformative experience. I highly recommend anyone to take a yoga teacher training (and a silent retreat!) once in their life!
