Top Yoga Retreat Destinations...

What better way to learn about the practice of yoga than by attending a special yoga retreat?

Immerse yourself in the pious mindset, healthy diet habits, quietude and inspirational setting of a yoga center and leave with the fundamental knowledge required to continue on the path toward self-realization and building strength on your own. Other benefits of learning yoga include: feeling more energized, hormonal balance, better digestion, a stronger respiratory system, better posture and enhanced relaxation.

Why not join the 16.5 million Americans who have already discovered the advantages of yoga practice?

Yoga retreat vacations are great for beginners and advanced practitioners alike.
A Yoga instructor since 1997, Jillian Pransky says, "Many of my students are city dwellers. Their yoga is fit in between running in and out of busy streets and wedged into their busy workloads. They get little respite and often don't get the dramatic effect they experience on retreat. Your body has more time to open, change, purify and cleanse in a retreat environment than in a daily practice."
For young, budget-conscious couples, the ten-day Inspya Yoga Retreat in Bali starts at $1009. Stay at the Greenfield Bungalows amid rice fields, tropical gardens and monkey forests. Visit temples, Mount Agung volcano and coral reefs in your free time. Paint a mural, participate in Balinese dance, meditate, learn to cook, make an offering or a wood carving, get a massage, swim in a spring water swimming pool, eat in an open-air restaurant, learn Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga and breathing techniques, or meet a traditional Balian healer. Loads of Aussies, Europeans and Americans flock here to find respite from daily stress.

A yoga retreat immerses you in a new way of thinking where every day is sacred and beautiful. Take a vacation that will change your life, learn more about ancient cultures and find techniques that you can take home with you as spiritual souvenirs.

Perhaps more than any other form of exercise, Yoga has been around the longest. Originating in India, this popular form of exercise has been practiced around the world. Why? The physical portion of the workout is very low-impact and can be performed by anyone of any age. The same cannot be said of kick boxing classes or Jazzercise. But there is more to Yoga than just working out the body. It is also a lifestyle that can bring clarity to the mind through spiritual exercises of meditation and concentration.
