The decision to go on a yoga retreat is not only a commitment to taking care of yourself, but to your self-discovery. This is a holistic way to destress on your vacation and allow yourself to transform and get to know you better.
Travel offers an opportunity to grow faster and in ways that do not happen so effortlessly as when you are at home. Your journey to self-discovery and growth can start with a yoga retreat. Here are just five of the unexpected ways a yoga retreat can help change you and make you grow.
You will finally unplug
When you are staying at Costa Rica yoga spa, you will finally stop looking down at that smartphone and start looking up at the beauty that surrounds you. You will soon cultivate gratitude for simple, organic things such as the sounds of birds, the feel of wind blowing around you and really taste the food you are eating.
You will focus on the now
At your yoga retreat, your mind will be clear of that meeting you just had or perhaps a relationship issue. A yoga retreat will destress you and focus your mind on the present. The tranquil beauty of Costa Rica, the instructor that helps transform you, the wonderful new friends you make on this journey are all part of what will finally calm your mind and clear out the cobwebs.
You will jumpstart your diet
Now that you are focusing on the present, what you are eating begins to matter a great deal. You find yourself not reaching for an afternoon candy bar, but craving the taste of a juicy, slightly sweet taste of a fresh mango. Your thirst is now quenched by water, not by a sugary beverage.
During the time of your yoga retreat in Costa Rica, you will find that as your body begins to change, your relationship with food also begins to alter. When you return home, you will always associate the healthy foods you consumed with this transformational vacation and continue eating in this way.
Your yoga practice will go deeper
When you are on a retreat, the only focus is on your yoga practice. As your mind focuses on the present and your body on the movements, your yoga will naturally go up a notch to the next level.
You will try something new
Whether on your first yoga retreat or if you have enjoyed other retreats, this is an opportunity to experience something new. By stretching yourself mentally, you have already made a head start stretching yourself physically.
