Breathing exercises and Yoga Nidra (the art of deep relaxation) are also taught. Yoga Nidra is a type of guided meditation that takes a person to the edge of sleep. In this state of consciousness, they may have ‘daydreams’ or ‘visions’, experience clarity over a problem they had, or inspiration.

They will also learn the philosophy of yoga and the spiritual teachings of Buddhism. There are different courses and retreats available to everyone, from the complete beginner to the experienced. They can explore subjects such as self-healing, energy exercises or nutrition for health to get a truly holistic approach that nurtures the mind, body and spirit.

On a yoga retreat, people also have the chance to explore their local surroundings, walk on the beaches and spend time with others who are like-minded to recharge their batteries amid the beautiful scenery. These are just some of the reasons yoga retreats are becoming more popular these days.
