Wondering why yoga retreats are becoming so popular? Ever considered going on one?
While yoga retreats can add purpose and intention to your vacations, not all yoga retreats are created equal. Our retreats here at Yoga Beyond the Studio are different.
Each and every one of our retreats is an all-inclusive dream vacation with a bit of yoga sprinkled in. What kind of yoga, you ask? The approachable kind. The beginner-friendly kind.
But our retreats include so much more than just the yoga.
So without further ado, here are seven reasons our retreats are so unique and perfect for any traveler!
1. We Take Care of Everything
Our retreats are always all-inclusive, which means that once you sign up, you know that everything is taken care of!
Transportation to and from the airports and hotels are always covered, as well as your stay in luxurious accommodations, delicious meals, and incredible local activities and experiences!
While airfare is not included in the cost of our retreats, we connect you with an experienced and professional travel concierge who will work with you to help get the best flights possible, protect your trip with travel insurance, and offer trip extensions. Are you excited already? You should be!
2. Delicious Local Food and Drinks
Vacations are meant to be indulgent, and we definitely take that to heart!
While we cater to vegetarians and vegans, our retreats aren’t about dieting at all or even necessarily being super healthy.
Every place we go has such a unique and incredible culture, that we just want you to be able to indulge in the foods from those cultures without any guilt!
That’s why our retreats include 3 daily meals cooked by local chefs with the best ingredients possible, a lot of love, and so much passion. You can quote us on this – delicious meals are part of what makes our retreats so memorable.
3. Luxurious Accommodations
We put a lot of thought behind each of the locations we choose for our retreats because, again, we want you to get the best of what each place has to offer!
For example, our Belize retreats take place at the Belize Boutique Resort and Spa, which has been around for years and is a staple in the local community. It’s right in the heart of the jungle as well, which makes up a big part of the culture there!
Not only do we choose the best accommodations possible, but we always make sure we are going to each location at the best time of year. Not too hot, not too cold – just right.
4. Immersion into New Cultures
You will always get to see the greatest highlights of each location we visit. We hand-select the experiences and resorts based around the culture of our chosen destination.
From exploring the ancient Mayan ruins of Belize to sipping wine overlooking the hills of Tuscany, to creating pottery in the ancient cities of Greece, you’ll leave our trips having experienced the local people and their culture.
5. More Than Just Yoga
If you haven’t already noticed by now – our “yoga retreats” are about way more than just yoga!
Yoga is what helps add intention to our amazing trips, but ultimately a retreat with us is meant to be one of the dreamiest vacations you’ll ever go on! Plus, the yoga classes are optional if you’re just not feeling up to it at any point. But if you are, our yoga classes are actually one of the most unique things about our retreats! You’ll get it when you try it. 😊
6. Yoga Designed Specifically for Beginners
We firmly believe that there aren’t enough true beginner-friendly yoga classes out there; that’s a big part of the reason our company came to exist! So we design our classes to be truly accessible to people who have either never done yoga before or are just starting their practice. We’ll help you build a solid, steady practice from the foundations up in a safe way, all while in a gorgeous new location, surrounded by new friends!
Not a beginner? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered too! We recognize that each person is at a different level in their practice and will make sure to offer modifications for everyone. All levels of yogis are welcome (because if you want a challenge – you’ll get one).
What if I’ve never tried yoga?
Even better! The best way to build a healthy habit with yoga is to practice daily, so a yoga retreat is the perfect way to start. Our yoga retreats are always catered to beginners, starting from the basics and building together. Our goal is to send you home feeling comfortable continuing your yoga practice on your own.
7. Building Community and Friends for Life
Last but not least, going on a yoga retreat with us allows you to meet and build relationships with like-minded people. Our retreats create a safe, judgment-free zone, where participants support each other throughout our experience.
If you think about it, each and every participant on our retreats sign up to see a cool new place and try yoga for the first time – just like you!
So many of our previous retreat-ees have stayed in touch after parting ways and even met again on another retreat of ours. The magic of our yoga retreats often creates friendships that last a lifetime.
Finally, we’re very proud to say that a large percentage of our past participants end up coming on our retreats again and again. You can check out what our past participants have to say about their experience on our customer reviews page.
