Mindfulness – The Biggest Treat of a Yoga Retreat

Mindfulness is the ability to focus on anything with awareness. You can do it at any time, at any place and with whatever resources you already have. But why then you need to go for a yoga retreat arranged by Elite Yoga? Here’s why.

Trained Yoga Teacher

By starting your own practice, you can become a beginner at best. In yoga retreats organized by Elite Yoga, you get to learn a lot more about your own mind than you would ever do if you do it alone. You cannot become mindful until you’re being shown your internal demons and where you’re getting stuck. A trained yoga teacher will identify the barriers and make you realize your true potential.

Amazing daily sessions of yoga

You would be offered guided meditation and yoga instructions on daily basis. And you also would be able to practice with the instructor. It’s said that to increase your ability to improve your mindfulness, you need to practice every day. Elite Yoga conducts yoga retreats so that mindfulness becomes the part of your everyday life.

Luxurious accommodation

Luxurious accommodation doesn’t mean a great ambience inside the five star hotel rooms you would stay in. Rather you would get the combination of both, outer and inner luxury of the accommodation. Amid the vast natural beauty, you would be able to enjoy the magnificent, exotic five star arrangements when you sign up for yoga retreats conducted by Elite Yoga. The retreat can turn out to be a vacation as well as a transformational journey within.

Healthy & Delicious meals

Mindfulness has a lot to do with food. If you don’t like what you are eating, it would be difficult for you to be mindful about it. You would learn a lot about food and you would eat healthy and most delicious foods you have ever had in your life. If you do mindfulness practice alone, it wouldn’t be possible for you to understand the value of healthy meals and how they can improve your ability to become mindful.

Local adventure activities

It is easy to become mindful when you are sitting and relaxing in meditation. But when you go out and get busy in the adventures, can you remain mindful? If you have noticed Buddhist Lamas, while doing every work, they remain mindful. If you join a yoga retreat, you would be able to understand the value of mindfulness at work.

Customization as per your need

The best part of Elite Yoga is that it is completely customer centric. Elite Yoga wants to give you the experience of a lifetime. So you can choose how you want your retreat to be conducted. If you want to come with all family members or friends, Elite Yoga will customize the perfect retreat for you. And mindfulness would be an additional benefit.

There is no fun in becoming mindful at home, alone. Come out on these retreats and you would see that as you change your environment, you would be able to change your mind. Mindfulness is an ability to have constant awareness on things around or within us. Only a great yoga retreat can offer you such ability with minimal effort.

Experiential luxury travel

Experiential luxury travel

Experiential travel isn’t a new concept. We have seen backpackers and hitchhikers making their way to the unexplored and virgin lands across the globe. For personal growth, satisfaction and self-realization, they set out on an expedition that has many obstacles on their way. The adventure, journey and thrill together makes an experiential travel loved.

With globalization, the unexplored lands are now easily accessible to many. Pampered with luxury and spoilt by choice, setting out with a back pack and sleeping on a mattress isn’t a part of the travel itinerary of Gen X and the generations after them. And so, luxury was added to experiential travel to make it accessible by the class of people who want to experience the unexplored in style.

Gained momentum recently, the Gen X have reshaped the concept of travel and luxury. Elevating luxury travel to another level, the experience, discovery and growth has taken a deviation. It’s no more about flashing your wealth or making a statement.  While there’s a place for Michelin star restaurants, 5-star resorts, chauffeur-driven cars, high-end consumer products and so on, there is an addition to this. Its ‘substance with style’.

Going for a safari ride in the dessert, hitchhiking to the virgin lake, meeting locals and learning about culture and more. An experience that brings about self growth, understand disparate cultures and rise above the status quo. After the experience one receives, knowing that the luxuries your used to is back there waiting for you, is comforting. It is stepping out of one pair of shoes to another, but they are your own shoes.

Elite Yoga has paved a new path for yoga retreats. While the yoga, meditation and life talk series are intact, we have changed the lifestyle of the retreat. From staying at a guest house to a 5-star resort, surrounded by the luxuries many seek and aspire, the retreat brings luxury and internal discovery together.

Experiential luxury travel goes beyond a kind of travel to a lifestyle. It’s an extension of your thoughts about the various elements of your life. It is not a trend, as it will eventually fade. But it is here to stay; change the way people travel and seek for new experiences.

Outdoors enhances yoga practice

Yoga teaches your mind to be still. Taming your mind outdoors can establish a link with the environment. Nature intensifies this experience and heightens your awareness. The sounds of nature, its physical appearance and the air, together, creates a sense of freedom you cannot feel indoors.

Nature has the ability to send you bursts of energy which replenishes the energy depleted in you. Feelings of vigor and vitality are sensed when one is in a natural environment. This elevated spirit within, helps to go with the flow of yoga.

When you step out of the four walls, your senses awaken – sight, scent and touch. The fresh air heightens breath awareness, clears the mind and empowers the practice. Looking at a beautiful scenery releases endorphins which makes one feel good. Touching grass or sand elevates stimulation, while an uneven surfaced area strengthens the core. The sensory experience that we go through morphs to a sensual experience. This experience makes you stay in the present, forgetting the rest.

Practicing in the vastness for the first time can be awkward. Stepping out of your comfort zone opens a door full of new experiences. Over a few practices, you will build confidence and will make you come closer to nature.

With every pose you do, your focus will be on one element of nature.  The freshness it will instill in you is magical. Well, it’s the yoga and nature that has stirred the wand.

Buddha wasn’t meditating in a hall, but under a tree. Studies show that people exposed to a natural surrounding versus an urban environment had a lower concentration level of the stress hormone, cortisol.

So step out, find your sweet spot and start practicing.

What to consider when you plan a yoga retreat getaway

Whether you’ve done yoga before or not, going to a yoga retreat is a vacation of a kind! The bouquet of benefits one reaps in a yoga retreat is completely different. Physical exercise, spiritual awareness and a pinch of adventure together gives you a soul-stirring experience. Once you’ve decided to indulge in a yoga retreat, choosing the right retreat has to be given a little thought and effort. The place of the retreat, the whole deal and who the teacher is, are some of the important things to look into. Delve into all the details so that you can get maximum benefit from the retreat you choose.

To help you choose the right retreat, here are a few things you should consider –

The destination of the retreat should be your top priority. Most of the yoga retreats have additional activities apart from the yoga and meditation sessions. Hiking, exploring the local markets, surfing and other activities are offered based on the local adventure sports or activities (which may be an additional cost).

Do you like fresh water bodies engulfed by a jungle or a pristine beach? Do you like luxuries like a massage and Jacuzzi or do you want to climb a mountain after a session of yoga? The options are aplenty based on your interests. So also consider the activities offered before you decide the destination to have a wonderful time.

It’s a no brainer that you have to pack accordingly. Based on the local norms and the activities you are going to indulge in, pack the necessary things. You don’t want to go shopping petty things during the retreat. Here are some tips to pack if you’re going to Dubai.

The most important person who you will be interacting during the retreat is the teacher or instructor. So before going, knowing a little about them will help you channelize your thoughts. Google and social media are your saviors here.

Well, we live in an age dominated by technology. It is difficult to forego technology, but try, when you are at a retreat. The disconnection from the outer world will help you connect with your inner world. It’s worth it! Since most of the luxury yoga retreats will offer Wi-Fi too, if you cannot be without your mobile phone, restrict its usage.

Do consider an all inclusive package! To avoid any additional costs rather surprises, a complete package will help you sort your finances. It will also save your time and efforts to make arrangements.
