Yoga and India are terms that are almost synonymous with each other! In Sanskrit, yoga means union or yoke, which translates into ‘connect or link’. Yoga is an experience of connecting oneself to divinity; it’s a practice of connecting your body, mind, and soul to a higher spiritual goal.
What is a yoga retreat?
A yoga retreat is basically a place where you can unwind from daily life stress and focus on wellness and rejuvenation. Most yoga retreats have a full regime that includes healthy meals, meditation sessions, and yoga routines by trained professionals. Yoga retreats are the right place to go if you want to reinvigorate yourself!
