Disconnect from everyday distractions and reconnect to your true self.
What to expect on a NWOR Yoga Retreat
Yoga Retreat, NOT Yoga Bootcamp
Some yoga retreats include vigorous yoga asana practice, strict health-food options, and an extensive list of group activities. Although this can be a beneficial experience in its own way, New Waves of Relaxation's retreats are a little different.
There will be 1-2 yoga classes per day (morning and/or evening); these yoga classes will reflect the attendees and their complications (if applicable) to ensure a pleasant yoga asana experience. Freshly-sourced healthy foods will be available, but are not required.
This experience is like a vacation: it's a great opportunity to let go of daily distractions and to do things that bring you joy (without that pesky to-do list hovering overhead). That said, there are only 2 mandatory group gatherings during these retreats: Yoga class and Breakfast.
There will be plenty of time to explore the surrounding area while still having the option to attend additional NWOR offerings* such as meditation circles, hikes, etc. Alternatively, there will be plenty of down time/quiet time if that's the type of vacation you prefer.
*Additional NWOR offerings are included in the retreat price at no extra charge. Not attending these additional offerings will not result in a discounted retreat price.
How are Locations Selected?
Each location chosen for Yoga Retreats are places your host has been before.
It can be frightening going to a place you've never been before with a yoga instructor who has also never been. So many thoughts can come up: what if I get lost? What if the lodging is mediocre? What are good food options (including low-budget)? How do I know this is a safe location?
Your host, Kalee, selects each location based on personal experience. All of the yoga retreat locations that are offered, Kalee has visited before.*
On each retreat you will receive a binder with Kalee's recommended restaurants, activities, and nearby resources (gas stations, grocery store, etc.).
*These locations refer to cities/towns/15-20 mile radius of lodging locations. Kalee has not personally stayed at every lodging location that is offered.
