Most vacations are planned around seeing new places, experiencing new cuisines and escapades, and indulging in luxury. Seldom we give ourselves a chance to rejuvenate our mind and body, and rediscover the spiritual balance that everyday life seeps out of us. A vacation at a yoga retreat resort such as Rakkh can offer you an enriching experience that fuels your zest for life and brings the balance back. Before you get down to packing your bags, here are some things to consider for a perfect yoga retreat! Read on.
Unless you are skilled at the art of yoga and know your asanas, you would want to choose a resort that houses experienced yoga instructors. It is especially necessary if this is your first experience at a yoga resort. Having a professional to guide you through your initial few sessions ensures you begin on the right foot (in the literal sense) and embrace the practice in all its glory.
From posture, breathing, pace and the all-important spiritual connect, you will need a teacher who can take your experience beyond the yoga mat. As they say, a student is only as good as his teacher.
Sync with Nature
Yoga isn’t just a form of exercise or breathing. It is an entire way of life. What better way to usher yourself into this world of spiritual, mental and physical rejuvenation than doing so in the lap of nature. Look up yoga resorts in India that allow you to experience nature in all its splendor.
Breakaway from the monotony of practicing yoga indoors and allow nature to connect you to your inner self using the path of yoga.
The Theme of The Retreat
Look for a meditation resort in India that aligns with your idea of spirituality and rejuvenation. If your focus is mental wellbeing through yoga and meditation, a yoga retreat resort that’s centered around weight loss and physical realignment isn’t exactly going to help you.
Likewise, if being around a water body and the sound of a trickling fresh spring of water calms your mind and body, your best bet is a resort at the foothills of a range of mountains. Do your research well and know what you’re going for.
While you may want to indulge in yoga a couple of hours a day, there must be activities and experiences that take up the rest of your day and make the entire experience fulfilling. You may want to spend time immersed in a book or pampering yourself at the spa.
You’d even fancy an early morning trek, a temple visit, pottery workshops or culinary workshops to learn some local food and treats. Research on how you would like to spend your time off the mat and ensure it’s something that excites you.
In addition to your yogic indulgence, a nearby monastery, temple or place of spiritual abode can do a whole lot to enrich your experience at a meditation resort in India. Attending workshops or interacting with spiritual visionaries are experiences that are absolutely unparalleled and seldom enjoyed in the hustle and bustle of the city you’re heading back to. Allow yourself a visit to such sites and come back with a head full of knowledge.
You can experience all of this and much more at Rakkh, a leading meditation and yoga resort located in the wondrous town of Dharamshala at the foothills of the mighty Himalayas.
