A retreat of our own making. I highly recommend it. We used airbnb.com to find a house that we could stay at for the weekend and it was cheaper than a hotel and much easier to stay at with a dog (two dogs actually, my friend and her pooch were there as well) and we could cook our own food. Eating out for me is getting harder and harder since I try my hardest to eat with a more alkaline diet mindset and I already do not eat dairy, gluten or beef/chicken.
We brought the Yoga mats and did a shortened asana sequence but it did feel like we were doing Yoga all day long. There were walks on the property that helped me breathe deeper than I do in everyday life. There was quiet- yes quiet while I was cooking. I didn't rush to put on a movie or TV show. I enjoyed what I was doing at the moment. It really did remind me how much external noise and running around I do that does not lead to my health and peace.
Ah, the freedom!
Yoga Dog thinks so too.
