Yoga is probably the most delightful gift of the ancient world which is still in practice. In fact, the relevance of this India-born science has only increased with the passage of time. It is not just limited to a practice for self-development, physical fitness, spiritual enlightenment and holistic wellness. It has extended into the world of modernism and has become a way to enjoy holidays with good health and vigor. Today, Yoga retreats are one of the most celebrated forms of vacation and among the worthiest ways to refresh, rejuvenate and connect to the inner-self. Amid the daily tight work schedules, stress, things to do, etc. we hardly pay any attention to our bodies or mind. Over the passage of time, we invite ailments and mental disorders that wreak havoc on our bodies and suddenly, we feel the urgent need to stop and do something about it. And that’s where yoga retreats come to the rescue.
They are a perfect amalgamation of vacation, relaxation and healthy living that brings back your original ‘self’ to you. Spending time in the vicinity of knowledgeable Yoga trainers and health experts lets you concentrate on a healthy and mindful living. For the entire duration of the retreat, you relish healthy diets, indulge in yoga and most importantly, let yourself settle down and relax. Yoga retreats are a complete package of fun, amusement and refreshment. Yoga retreats are more than just Yoga and healing. While Yoga takes the central stage, the respite from a work-loaded lifestyle is probably the best thing one can expect in a Yoga retreat program. It can also be an opportunity to reconnect with you near and dear ones. In this heavy workaholic environment, people have become so busy with their jobs that they don’t have time to spend with family or play with their children. Yoga retreat gives you a chance to reunite with those who care about you. Yoga stands for unity and a retreat program is the perfect embodiment of yogic beauty that helps you spend some unforgettable moments with your friends and family. A complete dose of relaxation is what you will be experiencing in a Yoga retreat. Every second you spend there is directly or indirectly associated with your wellness. You emerge completely revitalized from all aspects of life – physically, mentally and spiritually. Shwaasa The Author is a Blogger, Traveler and a Yoga Teacher in India.

Read a chapter of an empowering book. Have a morning tonic tea. You can see I’ve targeted my personal growth, spiritual connectedness, physical health, and mental/emotional balance. Now the chaos starts, and it becomes about everyone else, but at least I’ve given me and my life a sense of purpose and importance. If you’re a long time follower of ours, you know I talk about media fasts a lot. The world’s a chaotic mess. It’s a given. Turn off the news and you’ll have an entirely different perspective. You create your reality. Feed it with the things you want to be your reality. Turn off the news for at least a week. Then watch it again and pay careful attention to how it makes you feel. I never watch it or read it or listen to it. If it infiltrates my space, I feel sick, a little dead inside, and unplugged from what’s so pure and lovable about life. I start hating people.
- Your texting is consistent not constant
- ½ medium Haas avocado, chopped into small pieces
- Is it okay to have a small amount of alcohol during pregnancy
- 1 slice rye or spelt sour dough bread
- Behavioral difficulties, including emotional and social problems and attention disorders
- Legumes (such as beans and peas)
- 1-2 hours a day versus six and we choose our holidays rather than be told when to have them
I start hating life. I feel so jammed into the powerpoint. Unplugging from the chaos also includes reconnecting to a healthier inside! It can be a chaotic exercise in itself to transform your diet. So start slow. Introduce one new super food into your diet (a week if you can). I started my transformation with green smoothies. Now my diet is gluten-free, almost dairy-free, refined sugar-free, and a low meat diet. You will not find any refined sugar in our house, yet I make delicious cakes and sweets every week. If you follow us on SnapChat, you’ll see a lot of me cooking these with the girls and my green smoothie infatuation. My fave morning smoothie: coconut water, orange, banana, acai, blueberries, chia seeds, spinach, avocado, maca powder, hemp powder, green powder, raw honey, and raw cacao. I promise you if you start your day with my cleansing morning tonic above, followed by this smoothie, you will not need coffee and will be full until lunch. Simple Green Smoothies – Jadah and Jen helped me start a love for smoothies. They’ve been hugely influential in changing my diet.
I LOVE the recipes they produce – full of flavour, so healthy and make you feel so energised and good. I buy everything they produce now without even reading what it’s about as I trust everything they create. Their recipes and cleanses make it easy and delicious. As mentioned, I start my day by reading a chapter a day of an empowering book. I only want to put uplifting, positive, empowering thoughts and ideas into my head. I understand the power of our subconscious mind. It creates your reality. Feed your mind with the world you want to create. I talk about this in my 30 Day Money Cleanse, and we spend 30 days retraining our subconscious mind. It’s why participants, myself included, have such great success with it. Wayne Dyer is my favourite. I read his words every day without fail. I also love Marianne Williamson. You don’t have to jump on a plane to travel. Embrace the spirit of it by venturing into a new area close to home. Pop on your travel glasses and enjoy the freedom and adventure of it.
