Yoga Retreats – A Stress Free Vacation

When was the last time you went on a holiday and came back refreshed, energised, and full of life and totally rested?

Have you ever spent ages planning and deciding where to go for your annual holiday only to return home bloated, overweight, stressed and tired from rushing after the children, eating heavy lunches and staying up late drinking in the bar. A vacation is supposed to be a time of enjoyment, however, how many times have you returned home totalled de-stressed and revitalised?

If you are looking for a chance to unwind, let go of stress and feel energised, then a yoga holiday may be just what you are looking for. To ensure you have the best time ever, here are seven tips to consider so your yoga holiday goes smoothly.

Five useful tips to a stress free yoga holiday

1. Take your time and do your research to make sure you choose the right sort of retreat. The beauty of a yoga holiday is that it gives you the chance to have a relaxing holiday whilst doing more of an activity you love.

2. Take your time to relax and savour the energy of the retreat. The whole idea of going on a retreat is to give you space to rest, relax and unwind.

3. Don’t feel pressurised to join in. Naturally, on a retreat there will be plenty of opportunities for you to take part in formal and informal yoga classes. It would be nice to try out a class or two, however, if you just want to go and sit quietly and meditate every day or go for walks and practice yoga alone under the stars, then check before you book to see if you can do this.

4. Remember you are what you eat. Most retreats cook and prepare raw, vegan or vegetarian dishes. If you are a staunch meat eater, you will be surprised at how light and energised you feel after a few days of not eating meat. However, if the thought of not having any meat as part of your daily diet freaks you out, then make sure you find out when you book if meat dishes are included.

5. Decide whether to go alone or with friends or family. Like any other holiday, the people you travel with or even meet whilst there can make or break your holiday. If you know you are going on a retreat for a quiet relaxing time, then make sure, if you are going with a travelling companion, that you share similar values and ideas of what to expect and how you will spend your time. There is nothing more irritating when you want to sit quietly and mediate in the morning than to be constantly interrupted by questions and comments from your friend.

A yoga vacation is the ideal way to relax and re-energise your mind, body and spirit. To get the most out of your yoga holiday and return home stress free and refreshed then book a place which suits your desires for a stress free time.

Disney World Vacation Package – How to Find the Best Deal

Finding a Disney World vacation package that fits your budget can be difficult in this economic climate. However, spending time together as a family and having vacations together is an important part of bonding for a family, more so when times are tough. By putting together and planning a great vacation, the better time the family will have together. It is important to create fun times and precious memories for your children that in turn help strengthen family ties.

The trick to planning a great vacation, is knowing how to put it all together. If you are not a travel agent then you will need to find out what the good deals are and how to tell if they are good or not. Just because a sign says a deal is a special or discounted, does not mean that it is a good deal.

There are some ways to tell if a vacation package is going to save you money or not.

If you were to pay for each component of your vacation separately, you would soon see the numbers add up. Some of these components are transport costs, your hotel, food and drink, and your tickets to the park and many other little incidentals that you cannot plan on ahead of time. It is a good idea to budget for some spending money, so that you do not find yourself in the awkward situation of running out of money before running out of vacation.

One great way to save on hotel costs is to stay in a Disney hotel. They offer guests other benefits like as extended hours at the park, free travel, and free meals. Couple this with a package deal and you can save yourself thousands of dollars over regular park goers.

If you spend more than you can afford on your vacation, then it defeats the purpose of having a holiday and that is to relax and enjoy time with your family making fantastic memories. You would be too stressed to enjoy it and may have to spend weeks or months paying for it by working harder.

Finding a great Disney World Vacation package at a great price will ensure that everyone, including you, will have a great time. The trick is to find the best packages and there are ways to do this.

One way is to quiz some of your friends who have been to Disney World. Find out what they did and about any savings they discovered. Another way is to find some information on all the different options available and do your own research so that you have thoroughly prepared and planned for your vacation away.
