Holistic Holidays

Finally decided to take that much-needed break from work or school? Decided you need a bit of time to rest? Then good for you! Really. You just made a decision you will find yourself benefiting from in the near future.

With how busy the world has become these days, we notice more and more people finding it hard to just take a break and relax. Really relax. There always seems to be more to do, more to attend to, more to pay attention to. This is exactly why a break is important, and deciding to take one is a very good idea.

The Perfect Break

Why settle for just any break, however, when you can get something better?  

While a break is what you need, not just any break will do. You are not simply taking a break for no reason, after all,  you are taking it because you needit. You need it to restore the energy consistent work/study has taken from you. You need it to refresh both your body and mind. For this, a simple break would not be sufficient.

So what´s next? If a break is what you need, but a simple break wouldn’t do, then what will?  What exactly is this perfect break we offer? The answer is simple. What you need is a holistic holiday!

Holistic Holidays

So what is this holistic holiday we offer? 

To put it simply, a holistic holiday is any holiday designed to pamper and nourish the body, relax the mind, and uplift the spirit. It is the ultimate relaxation experience where you not only get a break but also get restored and ready to get back to work. 

Now, I know what you are thinking: Is this really any different from any other holiday? Here’s the honest and simple answer: Yes! It is.

The Benefits Of Holistic Holidays

Honestly, the difference between holistic holidays and regular holidays are quite numerous. There is just so much to gain from this type of holiday that a regular holiday can’t provide you. These benefits are divided into two major categories: 

  • Physical/Health Benefits

  • Mental/Emotional Benefits

Physical/Health Benefits

Holistic holidays are known to provide more physical benefits than regular holidays. While on a regular holiday you might get to rest and have some fun, holistic holidays give you more than that.

With holistic holidays you get benefits that help you both physically and medically. In fact, this type of holiday was designed with these benefits in mind. From the healthy meals you’d be eating to the exercises designed to keep you in shape and improve your overall fitness, you can be sure that when the holiday is over, you’ll be better off!

 Mental/emotional benefits

Also, holistic holidays do not only improve your physical wellbeing but also your mental and emotional wellbeing. Unlike regular holidays, holistic holidays do not only refresh you, but also revert the effect of the accumulated stress weeks upon weeks of work/study must have filled you with.

A simple week of holistic holiday would do you unbelievable wonders. Don’t take it from me though, seeing is believing after all. Why not try our holistic holidays and find out for yourself?

Yoga Retreat Italy

Are you looking for a location for your next yoga retreat and find yourself having trouble deciding which one to choose?
Are you new to the world of yoga retreats and need a good location to start this journey from?
Or are you simply overwhelmed by all the possible places you could visit that you find it hard to even come to a conclusion? If any of this is the case with you, then you need not worry; you’ve come to the right place!

When it comes to choosing locations for yoga vacations, retreats, and holidays in general, here’s one place we would always suggest: Italy.

Why Italy?

Why choose Italy? Here’s the simple answer: It is just perfect! Seriously! One could even say the real question should be “why not choose Italy?” With all Italy has to offer, all there is to see, feel, and experience, why not choose Italy.

Honestly, there’s just too much about Italy for it not to be a must see for any tourist. From the magnificent landscape to the unique man-made structures, and everything in-between, there is much to see and be mesmerized by in Italy.

Yet beauty is not all Italy has to offer. While beauty is indeed an important criterion when considering suitable locations for hosting yoga retreats, vacations, and holidays, it is not the only criteria. Other such criteria include:

●     Serenity

Locations for yoga retreats, vacations, and holidays are usually not only beautiful but also. Seeing as peace and tranquility is of vital importance when practicing yoga, locations for yoga retreats must be able to provide just that.

●      Remoteness

Locations for yoga retreats are also meant to be relatively remote. While this doesn’t mean you have to choose somewhere in the middle of nowhere, it is called a retreat for a reason, and hence, these locations should be relatively undisturbed by the troubles of the 21st-century life.

●      Safety

While serenity and remoteness are important criteria, safety is just as important. There is little to no use in choosing a location that has the first two in spades but is a dangerous place for you. 

Italy meets all these criteria and more, and this is why we consider it to be just perfect. Want to find out more for yourself? No worries. Visit Sunflowerretreatsto get more information about yoga retreat Italy and how to make reservations for it.

Considering visiting Italy for your next yoga retreat but don’t know where exactly in Italy to choose? Here’s our advice: Choose Casperia.


Located in the heart of the Sabina mountains just north of Rome, Casperia is a remote, car-free, medieval village with fewer than 350 inhabitants. Being remote, the village remains undisturbed by the far-reaching hands of modern-day civilization, making it the perfect location for a yoga retreat.

Casperia has everything you could ever look for in a location for a yoga retreat. It is beautiful, serene, remote, safe, and even more. It is the perfect place for anyone looking for a break from the stress of the 21st-century lifestyle.

Thinking of choosing Casperia? Visit Sunflower Retreats to find out how to make reservations for the next yoga retreat to Casperia.

Yoga Vacation Costa Rica

Quick question; when was the last time you went on a real vacation? How long has it been? Can you even remember? With how busy the world has gotten in recent times, there’s no surprise if you actually can’t remember. You’d be surprised how many people can’t. That’s how busy most of the world has become.

This is no excuse, however. Though there always seems to be something to do, this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take time to rest. On the contrary. This is exactly why you need the break.

Yoga Vacation

With how busy the world has become, the saying “work hard, play even harder” has never been more true. Just think about it. There is always something to do, be it school or work, or even personal business. Something or the other is always vying for your time, and every single one of them always seems important. If you are anything like every other person on our planet today, this probably describes your life, too.

Vacations, on the other hand, are a break from the general routine of your everyday life and this is exactly why they are very important. They provide you with the rare opportunity to have some much deserved “you” time. When on other days you work hard, vacations give you the opportunity to actually get to “play”.

Simply “playing” however is not enough. If you work hard, you deserve to “play” even harder. In other words, you don’t just deserve to go on a vacation, you deserve more.

What You Deserve

Now we know what you’re thinking: What’s more than a vacation? Well, the answer is quite simple, though it might come as a surprise: a yoga vacation.

What Is A Yoga Vacation?

To put it simply, a yoga vacation is a vacation based on yoga. It is one aimed at providing participants with all the benefits of yoga within the period of the vacation, the effect of which would still be experienced by the participant even after the yoga vacation is over. It is a vacation where the best of yoga can be experienced, even by a beginner.

Now you might be thinking, what’s so special about that? Well, here’s your answer: a lot. A yoga vacation is not simply a vacation where you have yoga as one of the activities on the agenda. It is a vacation where yoga is the activity on the agenda. Here yoga is not simply included as one of the various activities, it is the major activity. The trip and the entire vacation was made with yoga in mind, and this reflects every aspect of the vacation.

Why Yoga?

Why make a vacation that’s all about yoga? What’s so special about it? These are questions we get asked more often than not. Well, the answer is simple. The benefits! The benefits of yoga are just too numerous and remarkable, there is the necessity to take advantage of it. From improving the mental and physical health of practitioners to reducing symptoms of illnesses to combating anxiety, insomnia, and even depression; and all things in-between, the benefits of yoga are too numerous to mention.

With how busy the world is these days, however, there is almost no time to really practice, and as a result, little to no progress. Yoga vacations were created to fix this problem. With yoga vacations, you get the much-needed chance to practice, and hence, the much-deserved benefits. 

Would you like to experience these benefits yourself? Then join us at Sunflowerretreats. We have you covered on anything yoga-vacation-related. With us, you get the best out of yoga, and by extension, the best out of life.

Yoga Holiday

It is well-known that the holidays are a time to catch up on all the goodies one might have been missing out on for a very long time. With how busy the average person is these days, there is almost no time to just relax. There is barely enough time to talk with friends and invest in your interests, most especially as a student or a career person. There is barely even enough time to rest. 

This is why holidays are so important. Imagine how life would be without them! A world with no breaks from school or work?  Not so appealing, right? 

For this reason, every holiday is meant to be considered special and enjoyed to its fullest. Yet, this is easier said than done. Many times people end up finding that they didn’t actually get the best out of their holidays. Sure, they got to be free from work/school for a while, which is always a plus; yet they just can’t help the feeling that something is missing. 

If you are (or have ever been) one of these people, you need not worry. At Sunflower Retreats, we are here to fix this exact sort of problem. Our solution: A yoga holiday.

Yoga Holidays

Is this the first time you are hearing about this? Then get ready to be amazed. 

What would you consider the most enjoyable part of any holiday or vacation? Is it the trip? The location? The fun activities? The food? The opportunity to just kick back and relax? Well, it doesn’t really matter. A yoga holiday offers all that and more!

 “So what is a yoga holiday?” You might want to ask. Well, the answer is simple. A yoga holiday is any holiday aimed at providing you with all the benefits of yoga. 

This should not be mistaken with a holiday during which one simply plans to practice yoga as an activity. While the latter is also sure to provide you with some or even all of the benefits of yoga, it can only provide you with a fraction of what you can actually gain. A yoga holiday, on the other hand, provides you with the complete package. 

Think about it this way: visiting the gym might improve your physical fitness and even help you add a few more muscles to your build, but the effects would be nothing compared to if you had attended a workout workshop.

What You Stand To Gain

A single yoga holiday is sure to provide you with a load of benefits, regardless of whether or not you have ever practiced yoga before. Some of these benefits include, but are not limited to: 

●     Improved mental and physical health

●     Reduced effects of illnesses and medical conditions

●     The relaxation of the body and mind

●     An improved level of body fitness and build

●     Reduced anxiety and stress levels

●     The surrounding of yourself with nature and positive energy

●     A taste of healthy living

●     An improved knowledge of yoga

●     A place to meet like-minded people, and much more

You will never know just how much you truly stand to gain unless you actually go on one. Want in on the action? Then why not join us at Sunflower Retreatsfor a yoga holiday you will not soon forget!
