There are more people who practice yoga than people who don’t . Or at least it seems that way and for a very good reason.
There are a variety of reasons why we are choosing to take up the practice of yoga.
The practice of yoga is well-demonstrated to reduce the physical effects of stress on the body.. Most yoga classes end with savasana, a relaxation pose, which reduces the experience of stress even further.
Yoga can ease pain. Studies have shown that practicing yoga asanas (postures), meditation or a combination of the two, reduced pain for people with conditions such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, auto-immune diseases and hypertension as well as arthritis, back and neck pain and other chronic conditions.
Yoga includes breathing practices known as pranayama, which can be effective for reducing our stress response, improving lung function and encouraging relaxation.
Yoga can improve flexibility and mobility and increase range of motion. Over time, the ligaments, tendons and muscles lengthen, increasing elasticity.
Yoga asanas use every muscle in the body, increasing strength literally from head to toe. A regular yoga practice can also relieve muscular tension throughout the whole body.
Yoga helps to improve circulation by efficiently moving oxygenated blood to the body’s cells.
Yoga connects us with the present moment. The more we practice, the more aware we become of our surroundings and the world around us.

One of the ones we like best in Spain is in Barcelona
This June retreat incorporates yoga classes, bicycle tours, restaurants and wine tastings, so it’s a little more “urban”, but fun in our opinion.
Close to Barcelona is the gorgeous PGA Catalunya Resort with a huge choice of plots, villas and apartments for sale. There is amazing golf, and use of the facilities of an on-site 5 star hotel. So do stop by to perhaps play a round.
There is also a great retreat in South of France for 2017.
The Bodhimaya Detox Retreats have two dates this year. Located an hour from St. Tropez these retreats are held at a fairy-tale, 16th-century château surrounded by ancient forests and vineyards.
