Why chose Yoga?
Since my journey for better health I have discovered that to improve my physical well-being then I also need to work on my mental and spiritual sides too. There are many reasons that I feel that Yoga is the best way forward for me now:
- Yoga a disciplined method for obtaining a goal
- Yoga is good for helping to control the body and mind
- Yoga is good for connecting with oneself
- Yoga is good for building mental strength and posture
- Yoga is known to alleviate health problems, relieve stress and make the spine supple
- Yoga helps to learn how to controlling breathing
I feel that Yoga will be so beneficial long-term, and not just for the time that I am actually practising it. I completely lack any knowledge about what exactly it entails and therefore am glad that there is expert help to support me on my new journey.
Yoga Retreat Programme with Mark Warner Holidays
What better way to learn than on a yoga retreat programme with Mark Warner Holidays at San Lucianu Beach Resort in Corsica. This is a retreat with a difference in that it is run on the resort alongside other sports such as windsurfing, sailing, tennis and cycling and childcare provided. This is all within the cost of the holiday and also includes flights, accommodation and full board. The yoga is for adults only but the rest of family will still be well looked after with the normal resort activities. Plus the yoga week is suitable for all levels and is divided into different themes, with 3 sessions a day that can be dipped in and out of as required.
- Grounding (Saturday)
- Letting Go (Sunday)
- Being Kind (Monday)
- Inner You (Tuesday)
- Play (Wednesday)
- Love (Thursday)
- Balance (Friday)
Across the week, there will be a range of sessions including beachside vinyasa flow, yin yoga, a meditation beach walk, an introduction to Thai massage techniques, and SUP (stand-up paddleboarding) yoga. There is also free time every day to digest what has been learnt and to enjoy the rest of the resort and its facilities.
Lone traveller and things to think about when going on a Yoga Retreat Programme with Mark Warner Holidays
To start my journey to find myself it was decided that I would attend the retreat week alone. This is a really big deal to me as I am never confident to try new things by myself – and now I am going to fly to another country all by myself! This way I can really relax and find myself. Mark Warner have everything covered and are on hand to answer any of my questions. Polly, the yoga teacher, likes to get in touch with those attending before they set off so I need to think of any questions I might have. I guess what I need to know is what to pack and if I need to do any preparation.
Can you think of any questions I may need to ask?
