Why go on a yoga retreat?

August 21, 2017


I am writing this as I look out over the Med. My toes are wriggling in the warm sand, the sea is a soft lavender blue in front of me, stretching out as far as the eye can see. It's early, the sun has not peeked over the horizon but already the day has some warmth. A promise of what is to come. I hear nothing but the sound of the waves lapping the shore. My mind recalls the events of this year. It's been a year of growth and transformation, a year filled with discovering, learning and unlearning. A year when I identified my dharma. I have been fortunate enough to travel. Cyprus, Dubai, South Cyprus, UK, Uganda. I am deeply aware how inspired and open hearted I am every time I travel. The importance of travel is so deeply rooted into me.

 

Stepping out of my routine allows so much space for new ideas and new beginnings, space for spontaneity, freedom, and joy. Space for me to be myself. Space to slow down, connect, pay attention and truly surrender into the beauty of everything I see and do. 

 

My personal journey as a seeker, a humble warrior, as a shiatsu therapist, yoga teacher, wellness coach and reiki chaneller is based on this universal and individual search for finding life’s purpose, freedom, happiness and why I am here.

Yet my daily life can busy, filled with distractions, (facebook, cooking dinners, coffee) and my decisions made through responsibility instead of tuning into my souls calling.

 

Travel and retreats encourage me to switch off, not to scroll through my newsfeed or to save educational videos to watch later on my computer or phone. I trust in an emergency I can be reached. I want to be present, to hear the sacred inner voice of my authentic soul, to value myself and my needs. I want to share this profound gift with others.

This is why I am committed to hosting and leading retreats several times each year and of course, I am blessed to spend time with all of those interesting souls who join me.
