Just changing the setting of the yoga practice can have a dramatic effect on your experience. If you are used to practicing yoga indoors at the same time every day, look for a retreat that offers yoga classes outdoors. Simple changes can be quite cleansing for the mind and spirit.
Also keep in mind that just because you are attending a yoga retreat, you don’t have to live like an ascetic depriving yourself of the basic necessities, fasting, or maintaining a strict vegetarian diet. Of course, you can do that, too, if you want.
There are so many varieties of yoga retreats available. Experiences range from living like a monk to luxury, ecotourism sanctuaries. Yoga retreats come in all shapes and sizes. Choices abound from local to international destinations.
