The setting is the lovely Santa Teresa beach on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, a town known for its golden sunsets, surfing, some of the best dining options in the country, and of course, yoga. Read on and find out why you need to be a part of this all-women’s retreat in February 2018 hosted by Pranamar Oceanfront Villas and Yoga Retreat.
Everyone has their very own personal reasons for embarking on a retreat, and these may be just a few more benefits that you haven’t thought about.
Free yourself from technology
When you digitally cut yourself off from your phone and computer, free yourself from constantly checking your emails, messages, Facebook and Twitter feeds, then you give yourself a better chance for success. Success at meditating, taking time for yourself, grounding yourself, and making sure you’re focusing on what is important to you. Of course, the technology is available, you can connect and check in with loved ones as regularly as you like, but try it a few hours a day and see how it frees you up to so much more.
We all know what we should do to be healthy, don’t we? The stress and routine of work, home and family sometimes find us straying away from ideal behaviors. A retreat will provide healthful food you already prepared, no guesswork. Daily yoga classes take care of body and soul. You’ll meet others on the same path, and the buddy system is a powerful tool to help us reach our goals.
Take your yoga practice up a notch
You may feel in a comfort zone about your knowledge for the practice, whether you are a beginner or an expert. When you are part of a group you can learn from each other, share experiences, and support and aid each other with achieving improvement during each class. An all-women’s retreat also allows for open communication, empowerment and sisterhood.
Make lifelong friends in a beautiful exotic location while you focus on self-care, empowerment and mindfulness. Take the leap to a better you and sign up for the Shakti Rising Yoga Retreat, February 17-24th at Pranamar Oceanfront Villas in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. Join instructors Nancy Goodfellow and Chantal Russell for this empowering retreat.
