Yoga trip

Travel for yoga lovers

The new year has started and at the same time the good resolutions for the new year came. Whether doing more sport, taking it easy or eating healthier, the resolutions are very similar every year. For example, last year I went to my gym at the beginning of the year and was shocked by the crowds. Smiling, the receptionists told me it was always like that: "New Year's resolutions, you know". And indeed, in February it was already much emptier in the studio. I don't know what it looked like afterwards. Because I didn't last either.

For me, gyms lose their appeal as soon as it gets warmer outside. I'd rather spend my time outside. That doesn't mean that I spend my time eating ice cream with friends in the park (also, but not only). I also like to do sports in nature. Whether jogging in the forest or a few sun salutations on the yoga mat (but a bath towel will do too) in the fresh air.

A yoga trip combines the good resolutions for the new year

At the beginning of the year, people are also happy to plan the trips they would like to take in the coming year. Yoga trips show that you can build in good intentions. More exercise, eat healthier and relax completely at the same time. All of this is combined in a so-called yoga retreat.

But what should you watch out for on yoga trips?

To find your ideal yoga trip, ask yourself what style you want to practice. Nothing is more disappointing than wanting to work out and then end up in a passive yin yoga retreat. This page gives you a good overview of the yoga styles that exist. Some like it more spiritual, others prefer a simple yoga class in which the body is in the foreground.

Next, ask yourself what space should yoga occupy on your vacation. Should it be the center of your journey or is it enough if you practice one hour each in the morning and one hour in the evening and can organize the rest of the time freely?

The beauty of all yoga journeys is that you dive deeper into the practice. It doesn't matter whether yoga is the focus or "only" practiced to start the day. Daily practice is something very special. In normal everyday life it is often difficult to practice every day. A retreat can help to learn how to do it.

Find the environment that suits you

Finally, you should look for the right accommodation. You don't have to travel far for a yoga holiday for a long time. On Good travel you will find beautiful places in Europe for your next yoga trip. Here you can practice wonderfully and all of this in front of the most beautiful natural backdrop with fresh forest, sea or mountain air. There's nothing more beautiful! You can also find four other particularly meditative places on Good impact.

Cook mindfully and eat together

In addition to the practice of yoga, fresh, healthy food is also in the foreground on a yoga trip. It's great when cooking together is offered at the property. In this way you can learn practical tricks for the kitchen at home, which you can then use long after your vacation.

In addition to yoga classes, many accommodations also have wellness offers in their program, which are a great way to slow down. Some accommodations also offer the option of digital detox by deliberately avoiding WiFi in the rooms or the entire property.

Yoga is suitable for every body

A yoga holiday is really recommended to everyone. It does not matter whether you have been a practicing yogi for years or a budding yogi. Because the nice thing about yoga is that everyone can get started right away. Retreats are also quite suitable for beginners, because the teacher usually deals with each individual yogi and his level individually. You should clarify any restrictions such as back pain in advance with the teacher so that he can address them in practice.

To summarize, once again the questions that you should ask yourself before booking your yoga trip:

  • Which yoga style do I want to practice? Spiritual, simple?
  • Which space do I want to give to the yoga practice?
  • Where do I want to practice? Sea, mountain, forest?
  • What is eaten
  • Do you cook together?
  • Do I want to take advantage of wellness offers?
  • Do I also want a digital detox?

We at Good Travel wish you all the best for the start of the year. Let it be well with you. Namaste!

    I have been an avid yoga fan for a few years and went on vacation to a yoga hotel in Austria for the first time. That was a really great break!

    There is something magical about combining yoga with travel. You break out of everyday life and come back to yourself. Worries, commitments and appointments can fall away. Yoga and also traveling have this effect on me.
