Yoga means different things to different people. For some, it is about getting fit -health-, but Yoga is basically about finding peace - wellness of the mind. It is about getting clarity and freedom as you gain self-knowledge. Unfortunately, getting to that stage can be quite a challenge, considering our day to day schedule, environment, circumstances and technology, among many other distractions. This is why traveling to exotic natural locations on a yoga retreat is advisable.
When you're on a Yoga retreat your schedule is literally taken off your hands; no thinking of what's coming tomorrow, no technological distractions (although not all yoga retreats are technology retreat), no stress, you get to connect with nature, you'll ACTUALLY meditate and hey, no cooking. There's no better place to get first class yoga retreat experience than at Sunflower retreat in San Teresa, Costa Rica.
