Green Balance: 4 Yoga Oases for Inner Peace!
Ommm dear yogis! Today is World Yoga Day and we introduce you to four of our Green Pearls, where we would love to start completely refreshed into the new week! They do not only impress with gorgeous surroundings, but are sustainable as well. Small disclaimer: it will not be easy to decide, which yoga destination to visit first!
1. Sun Salute at the Grossglockner
No matter if beginner or experienced Yogi: at Gradonna Mountain Resort Châlet in Austria, everyone is invited to relax. In the summer you meet outside in the fresh mountain air at the bathing pond or else in the tower with a wide view onto the whole valley. Two times daily (morning and evening), well-trained yoga instructors take you one step closer to deep relaxation. An own fresh water spring, a skin care line with local herbs, as well as light, healthy cuisine with high standards complete the relaxation program!
2. Breathing Exercises at Alahambra
The name says it all: at the Andalusian Utopian Retreats, you can not only experience yoga as an individual, but also visit whole retreats! In a Moroccan style flair, they offer several yoga programs, either for a short timeout or for a whole, intensive yoga week! And all this is surrounded by 33 acres of lush Spanish gardens. To the same effect, the hotel cook prepares gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian dishes for participants. A true yoga paradise!
3. Mantras in the Italian Hinterland
A total newbie on the yoga matt is the Relais del Maro. Yoga enthusiasts can decide, if they want to say their mantras outside in the middle of nature on green grass or in a cozy living room for absolute relief. To both places, you have to take a small stroll; but that is done on purpose to slowly begin the relaxation process. Paired with the traditional Lingurian cuisine prepared with local foods and the family-like atmosphere, we recommend to leave your watch at home and simply dedicate yourself completely to the Italian flair.
4. Inner Serenity in the Middle of the Costa Rican Forest
Those, who search for inner serenity with yoga, is absolutely in the right place at Macaw Lodge. Everything is kept in perfect harmony with nature, to bring not only yoga enthusiasts into a calming mood. Detailed yoga workshops and retreats are available throughout the whole year. These take place on the specifically created yoga balcony, surrounded by exotic plants. These medical, decorative and also agricultural plants can all be found in the botanical garden surrounding the lodge, which was developed to conserve them outside their natural habitat. Unwinding guaranteed!
We hope we were able to deliver some new sustainable inspiration for your next yoga trip! Where would you head to?
