Are Yoga Retreats life changing?

Well, not that everyone that attends a retreat wants a life changing event, so here are a few ways to experience them. Yoga retreats can be 1 of three things, in my opinion.

  1. A vacation with some yoga sprinkled in.
  2. A way to meet other like minded people while on vacation.
  3. An amazing occasion to release pent up energy and learn a whole new way of looking at life. 

I have to say these can even be all in one retreat, which would make it the best experience by far.

I have attended a few retreats, but have run yoga retreats for over 15yrs. The key points to look for are. Thrilling location, scrumptious food, yoga teacher experience, and amazing accommodations. The Greece Yoga retreat this coming June will check off those boxes for you. 

-Location: Greece is an ancient land with incredible history. Everything from the philosophical legends, long lasting grandiose architecture and heart warming culture. Why not include both a historic country and uplifting yoga into your...

Why is yoga good for mental health?

Have you ever just hard a horrible day, feeling like everyone wants something from you and if you have one more person demand this or that you might explode? 

Well I am having one if those days and ended up going for things that comfort me. Food, a certain friend, crawling back into bed are only a few ways to cope with a rough day. What makes a day hard? I have had demands on me before and haven't cracked. I have had slip ups and seems to weather that storm ok. 

What we have to realize first is it isn't a simple answer to these inquiries. The human species is more than a body and mind. We as homo sapiens have a 'sensitive sense' that supersedes the mundane of everyday living. Emotions get stirred up from our thoughts, electromagnetic frequencies, old traumas, conditioning/programing, ancestral patterns, and energetic wavelengths from other people. When we don't allow ourselves to feel them and experience the hurt, pain, patterns, sadness etc. then they become lodged...

Can you believe what we have endured over the last 20+ months?! What a stirring of the pot and upheaval on a major scale. Many of us are feeling shifts within our consciousness and within our bodies as well as in the world around us. How you perceive experiences and situations will determine the level of trauma or liberation you feel. No one is exempt from cleansing, purifying, and releasing in a time like this. PTSD, anxiety, depression, divorce, relocating and other challenges are felt by all, one way or another, but in a different way. 

Yoga invites us to go inside of your heart and mind to rewire the unproductive ways of seeing the world. Spring is an excellent time to clear out the resurfaced toxins and debris of mind and body. Spring is Kapha season and a time for letting go and rebuilding with nurturing activities, whole food, pure water and air, movement and attitudes. 

Ayurveda is the complementary science to yoga that looks deeper into what hinders your practice,...

When did Yoga begin?

Yoga has taken the world by storm. Yoga is an excellent practice for many reasons. It's a way to release held stress, gain flexibility and tone the body. A recent poll estimates that in 2022 40 million people in the US alone practice yoga. The number of participants grew 50% between 2012-2016 alone, with no signs of stopping. 94% of yoga practitioners say they do yoga for wellness-related reasons.

94%?!.. that's huge....and despite the Buti yogi's and cross trainers. Wellness related reasons are obviously the #1 reason to practice yoga.

But who started all of this? When did yoga become such a powerful force in the modern world? Well, let's get clear on what Y O G A truly is. Yoga means "to yoke", union or integration of all parts of you. It's the science and art of consciousness. Yoga isn't a doing activity, it's a state of being while you are doing or not doing. Yoga is YOU in your pure divine nature. If you have every attended a class, yoga retreat or Yoga Training with...
