When I think of a yoga retreat my mind fills with visions of yoga classes on a beach, vegetarian meals, and daily massages in an exotic locale. But you don’t have to go to an exotic place to have a yoga retreat–there are likely tons of studios close by. Go to a new one every day, take from as many different teachers as you can and instead of a pricey summer yoga retreat, you can have something more like a “yoga adventure.”
In fact, the yoga adventure trip may be this summer’s trend in the yoga community.
The writers of YoYoYogis (a blog at yoyoyogi.com) are spending their summer exploring 100 different yoga studio in 100 days. They’re visiting studios from all over the West Coast, but Seattle to San Diego and blogging about their experiences along the way.
Meanwhile, the folks at YogaMates are trying out 50 studios in 50 days and will be tracking their progress through video blogs.
I wonder if anyone is taking a yoga adventure on the East Coast, then we’d have a nice well-rounded idea of the yoga scene across the country. Have you ever gone on a yoga adventure?
