When you participate in hatha yoga holidays, you have the support and freedom to open up while learning about asanas and kriyas that cleanse and strengthen the body. You’ll also learn how to tap into mindfulness practices that expand your consciousness and significantly reduce mental stress. Most Hatha yoga retreats also provide healing and nutritious meals, so you can learn how to feed yourself in a nourishing way.
Many hatha yoga retreats are hosted in gorgeous natural environments, allowing you to reconnect to nature. You’ll automatically benefit from all of the inspiration that comes with unplugging from electronics and opting out of the stressors of your daily life.
With trained yoga professionals in beautiful settings, Hatha yoga retreats are intended to give you enough space from your “real life” so that you can undergo a radical shift in your way of being.
Hatha yoga is an ancient yogic practice that infuses asanas (yoga poses) with the transformational power of the breath. In Hatha yoga, you’ll hold poses for much longer than you would in a vinyasa class, allowing you to access more energy, expand your awareness and remove physiological blockages. By participating in Hatha yoga retreats like the ones at Retreat Relax Release, you can easily undergo radical shifts because you’re able to focus on yoga and self care intensively.
Learning how to become skilled at being your own yoga teacher, especially before attending a Hatha yoga teacher training, is more convenient and sometimes more transformative than catching every 7 a.m. class at the studio. Being able to design a practice based on your own intuition and giving your body what it needs, when it needs it, is a valuable skill.
Imagine waking up in the morning, getting on your mat, and incorporating what you learned at a retreat to build your own personalized practice. Once you’ve had intensive instruction about Hatha yoga alignment, you can safely do what feels good for you without fear of injury.
The best part about Hatha yoga retreats is that you can bring everything you learned (and the best version of yourself) home with you.
“In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can.”
