Comfortably nestling in the Andes Mountains at 2,850 meters, Quito stands tall and proud for the world to see. Just as epic as it sounds, Ecuador's capital has a lot to offer if you choose to go on a yoga retreat there. Once you get past the noise and traffic of the big city, you'll be happy to stumble upon Quito's Old Town and Basilico del Voto Nacional. Whether you're on or off the mat, Quito yoga holidays will astound you in more ways than one.
Strength training has been proven to prevent diseases and degenerative conditions, increase energy, decrease anxiety, increase bone density, build a strong heart, and reduce blood pressure. Typically, when you talk about sculpting the body, you think about HIIT circuits and the weight room. And yoga is, wrongly known, only as a good option for warm-up, stretching, and never seems to be considered a workout.
It’s no secret that we live in perhaps the most stressful times there ever were. Even if our material comfort is perhaps greater (for those of us privileged enough), the daily grind takes a higher and higher mental toll. Only the levels of information we absorb daily are a huge and incredible source of mental strain, never mind the emotional pressure.
Stress, and its physical symptoms, affects 77% of the population as reported by the American Institute of Stress. Over 90% of doctor visits can be traced back to stress in some way from poor digestion, disrupted sleep, increase heart attack/stroke risks, compromises our immune system, increase in anxiety symptoms and more.
