Yoga Retreats

(See also: yoga teacher training and yoga holidays.)

Yoga retreats are an opportunity to immerse ourselves in the practice of yoga. The tradition of yoga is deep, and it goes beyond the practice of postures. A yoga retreat allow us to study yoga in greater depth that we might usually do in our daily lives. Longer yoga retreats are an opportunity to make new friends, study with a qualified teacher, and deepen your understanding. Similarly, a weekend yoga workshop—whether it’s at your local yoga studio, or at an ashram or beach resort—can be a perfect opportunity for beginners to enter the world of yoga.

A yoga retreat centre—of which there are many throughout the world—is a place to step up to the next level of yoga practice. Whether you are a total beginner or an experienced yoga teacher, you can always appreciate the calm atmosphere and focussed learning of a retreat at a yoga centre. At an ashram, you might find more focused, intensive courses to improve your knowledge of physiology or do an in-depth study of yoga philosophy.

Among the well-known styles of hatha yoga, Ashtanga, Sivananda, and Iyengar were all developed by Indian teachers and brought to the west in the 20th century.

Contemporary styles such as Yin Yoga, restorative yoga, and all the forms of vinyasa yoga, have been developed by Westerners—with the wide-ranging needs of Western yoga practitioners in mind.
