7 Step Guide on **HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOGA RETREAT**

 

 

PICK A DESTINATION NEAR By

 

Try to go to unexplored places nearby. Since you are on a budget, pick somewhere you can go by road. If you have your heart set on some place far away, as long as you have the money for a place ticket, you are good to go!

 

Furthermore, the destination should be some place which actually interests you.

 

Also, practicing yoga in an unexplored place is just the best and makes your experience more rewarding.

GET YOURSELF REGISTERED FOR YOGA CLASSES

 

You should look for a yoga centre which has a variety of classes.

Make sure you register and buy passes for as many classes as possible. In fact, wake up early for a morning class and carry on with other yoga classes and utilize your time judiciously.

 

Not taking the full package has a huge perk, you actually get some time to explore and enjoy the destination as well while attending a variety of classes scheduled throughout the day. This way the retreat is actually tailored to fit your exact needs and you are on your own schedule.

 FIND INEXPENSIVE ACCOMMODATION NEAR YOGA CENTRE

 

Make sure you find a place near the yoga centre, this way you save money on travelling.

 

Remember, you need only the basic amenities since you will be out all day. Moreover, all you need is a clean and ventilated room with a clean bathroom. Also, don’t be too choosy with the room, it won’t matter anyway.

COOK YOUR OWN FOOD IF POSSIBLE

 

Try to find a room which has a kitchen. You can cook your own food and save a lot of money instead of eating out all the time. Moreover, you can easily buy groceries at a very cheap price and eat what you like instead of making a hole in your pocket.

BRING YOUR YOGA MAT

 

Yes, bringing a yoga mat all the way from home feels like a hassle, but you will be so glad when you do.

 

In fact, it is much more convenient since you will have a lot of time on your hands in case you don’t have many classes to fill your time.

 

Moreover, you can comfortably practice yoga on the beach in solitude and enjoy your free time. This way you have the luxury to practice yoga anywhere and anytime.

MEET NEW PEOPLE

 

Find like-minded people and spend time with them. Don’t stay cooped up in your room. If you don’t come across like-minded people, go ahead and talk random local people. I assure you! You will be surprised; they all have a journey and a story to tell.

RELAX AND ENJOY THE JOURNEY

 

This is probably the most important thing to keep in mind. Don’t think about saving and planning all the time. Sometimes you need to go with the flow and just roll. Yes! You need to make small decisions along the way while on the trip but try to plan everything beforehand so that you have a smooth ride.

 

Moreover, if you stay calm and collected, it will be easier for you to have a hassle free journey. Focus on your spiritual journey and connect with your soul. As long as you have your priorities straight, other things won’t affect your journey.
