ad collaborative post // The myriad well-being benefits of yoga are by now widely recognized right across the globe, from London to Lagos (and everywhere in between). This blogger, as you know by now, is a huge proponent of the practice and how it can help us all to be calmer, more focused and mindful, and certainly, physically healthier.
Yoga is no fad. It’s been around for over 5000 years because it works! From greater strength and flexibility to enhanced and increased energy levels, concentration, and blood circulation to massively reduced stress levels, yoga done right is a true mind-body-spirit curative and tonic for the soul.
Experiencing yoga as part of an immersive breakaway retreat in a fabulous spot over a weekend or longer holiday is the perfect way to treat yourself in 2022. Get away from it all, get pampered, eat divine cuisine and make friends, with a few fab yoga classes thrown in for good measure!
