Find your Zen on a yoga holiday
There’s no denying it – yoga has taken the world by storm and its popularity continues to grow. In our busy world of deadlines, social media and commuting, it’s little wonder that more and more people are gravitating towards a healthier lifestyle and looking for a relaxing and mindful escape, even if it’s just for one hour a week.
In addition to incorporating yoga classes into our weekly schedule, wellness and yoga themed holidays are also on the rise, offering a more sustained relief from the stresses of daily life. And it’s not all pampering and indulgence. The appeal of going away is no longer to sit and chill, but rather to do something a little different and capitalise on our hobbies and what makes us feel good – namely, health, fitness and being active.
