Our retreat, Root to Rise: Yoga & Art Retreat for Women, is taking place in just 9 days! The retreat includes yoga, meditation, live music, expressive painting, medicine wheel creation, nature immersion, personal time, relaxation, and more. It’s going to be fantastic and you don’t want to miss it! If you are in need of some self-care as well as some time with a supportive and inspiring group of women, this retreat is for you.
Need a few more reasons why going on a retreat could be a good idea? Here are 9…
#1. Your yoga practice will grow, strengthen and deepen.
Whether you are new to yoga or a seasoned practitioner, practicing yoga with a supportive group and a compassionate yoga teacher will bring a deeper understanding of your body’s capabilities.
#2. You will make new friends.
A yoga retreat is a fantastic way to form new friendships as well as create a network of like-minded people to collaborate with, lean on, and reach out to beyond the retreat.
#3. You’ll get a new perspective.
Going on a retreat creates an opportunity to see yourself and your life in a new light. You will get the space you need to declutter the mind and gain clarity, direction, and presence.
#4. You’ll meditate.
During a retreat there are no cell phones buzzing, work deadlines, or house chores pulling you away, which means you’ll actually get to meditate, rest, and just be.
#5. You’ll detox digitally.
Imagine a day free from technology. During a retreat, you get to unplug and take a break from your phone and computer. It will feel really good.
#6. You’ll relax and de-stress.
You will have the whole day to de-stress and experience deep relaxation, a rarity in our fast-paced world. You will leave the retreat feeling rejuvenated and re-inspired.
#7. You’ll eat well without having to do all the work.
During a retreat, you receive healthy and delicious meals without doing any of the work. You get a day off from finding recipes, going grocery shopping, preparing the food, and cleaning up. Now that sounds awesome!
#8. You’ll learn something new.
On a retreat, you get a break from your daily routine and stresses, allowing for dream cultivation and refueling of inspirations. What you learn (or are reminded of) while on retreat will come home with you and can be applied to your yoga practice, lifestyle, aspirations, relationships, etc. A retreat also provides inspiration on how to make each day feel sacred.
#9. You’re worth it!
Committing to a full day retreat can be intimidating or even a little anxiety-inducing (what about that to-do list?!) but taking time for some self-care will be energizing, empowering, and enjoyable!
