Going on my first Yoga retreat nearly two decades ago was a major turning point in my life so much so that I now lead yoga and transformation retreats all over the world (and locally) because I know first-hand the power of retreat.

Here are 3 Reasons to Go on a Yoga Retreat (+ take your mat on the on road):


1. You’ll Take Your Practice to the Next Level

Whether it is your asana, meditation or spiritual practice – being on retreat allows you to really focus in and go much deeper than you would in day-to-day life. Regular practice can be challenging with a busy schedule but retreat is a chance to JUST focus on you.

2. You Will Relax + De-stress (and Digital Detox)

Often when we are out of our day-to-day environment and routine, we give our self permission to truly relax. Being on retreat gives you a chance to tune into your body, just BE and reconnect to you.


3. You Will Gain a New Perspective + New Friends

Going to a new place creates an opportunity to see the world, and yourself, in a new light. Experiencing new places is an accelerated way to grow and learn. As well, on retreat you are surrounded by like-minded people. I have seen total strangers become fast, life long friends after the shared experience of retreat. Retreat is a great way to meet soul-sisters and brothers.

Bonus Reason – You’ll Eat Well Without Having to Do All the Work

If your retreat is all inclusive, you get three healthy and delicious meals a day without the need to find recipes, go grocery shopping, prepare the food, or clean up. Getting the nutrition you need has never been easier. All the work is done for you.

I hope you will consider taking your mat on the road in 2017 and experience a yoga retreat that is just as transformative as my first experience two decades ago.

Big love,
