BuDhaGirls believe in being mindful, present and physically fit. That being said, you might have guessed that yoga is one of our favorite activities. This ancient practice allows us to nurture our bodies, minds, even spirits with just one grounding practice. One of the best ways to engage with yoga is to completely escape the daily grind, and attend a yoga treat. As summer approaches, it is the perfect time to get out of town, re-focus, and rejuvenate. From scenic views to detoxifying meals, these three international yoga centers will have you booking a plane ticket ASAP!
Villa Sumaya Retreat, Guatamala
The Villa Sumaya Retreat is located on Lake Atitlán, Guatemala in sacred Mayan lands. Situated on an energy vortex, Villa Sumaya is the perfect place to make a meaningful transformation. Attend a personal wellness retreat - you'll enjoy luxury accommodations including daily yoga, fresh, vegetarian meals and guided meditations. We hear that the homemade kombucha is delicious and the Mayan fire ceremony with the local shaman is unforgettable.
Ananda Retreat, India
Travel to the Ananda Retreat in Rishikesh, India to experience yoga at its origin. The picturesque, Indian retreat rests near the Tibet, and offers a refreshing detox experience. Rishikesh is home to a number of yoga retreats, and is the place where the Beatles visited to work and study yoga in 1968. We suggest you visit Anand Mehrotra at the Sattva Center in the jungle outside Rishikesh to enjoy enriching yoga classes, wisdom talks, and Vedic astrology readings.
