Wow.... if we thought planning all of the logistics for one retreat was a good challenge, imagine three at one time. We have been hard at work behind the scenes over here organizing our entire international calendar for 2018, and we are so excited to share it with you!
First we want to explain the inspiration behind the locations we've chosen for our adventures.
You may recall from our post a few weeks back- 10 reasons to go on a Roaming Yogi Adventure that our trips are inspired by nature, by what's tucked away in the far corners of the earth, by this idea that we're all connected through something greater. We love to adventure the local way wherever we go, carving out unique cultural experiences and eating amazing local cuisine.
Without further ado...
Roaming Yogi Adventure's 2018 Yoga & Adventure Retreats
Surfing & yoga is an unbeatable combination. Both have the ability to connect you deeply to yourself and to mother Earth, to challenge you, to comfort you, to grow with you along your journey. Our first retreat of 2018 is sure to be an unforgettable experience practicing yoga and learning to surf in the warm tropical waters of Sri Lanka, an island off the coast of India, where yoga was founded and developed.
Throughout the week, you'll have surf lessons in the water with a local surf coach along with surf theory lessons to support your understanding of the ocean and the mechanics of surfing. For more experienced surfers, you'll have the option to just be guided by locals to the best breaks in the area and enjoy empty lineups with either the boards you travel with or from the villa (board rental is included).
Along with surfing & yoga, we'll explore the culture through an interactive cooking class where we'll make delicious Sri Lankan food, a visit to a local temple and go on an epic wildlife safari.
We are passionate about embracing the most adventurous things to do in every location we visit, and Sri Lanka will not disappoint! The villa we are partnering with is committed to sustainability, which is evident in the home itself and the daily life of the owners.
Imagine waking up to the island sun, enjoying your cup of coffee or tea in your villa room and walking just steps to your invigorating and challenging morning yoga practice. After yoga is a hearty breakfast to fuel us for a day of adventure, and a week of island hopping.
Our Greek Island Yoga Retreat will take us to not 1, not 2 but 3 of the most picturesque, adventurous, and bucket list islands in the world. Most of the islands are volcanic in origin, so they're known for their dramatic scenery, and the Greek culture is of leisure and enjoying life (expect amazing food and drink!)
Expect sea expeditions, cliff jumping, hiking, snorkeling, and delicious Greek food!
Wine Tasting in France
We are collaborating with Chateau de Bardouly in the southwest of France to offer a yoga & wine lover's bucket list retreat straight out of a fairytale.
We'll arrive on a Saturday evening and get settled in and acquainted. Our activities include canoeing on the Dordogne River, exploring castles and pre-historic caves, a trip to the beautiful local garden, cycling, wine tasting both in the home with a local sommelier and at a vineyard as we play winemakers for a day! If you love yoga, wine, and days filled with light adventure and relaxation, this trip is for you!
All retreats will be available to begin booking Tuesday, August 15th, 2017!
