There is no such thing as a “wrong time to visit the Carpathian Mountains". This beautiful place is stunning during any time of the year. Full of green colors, blossoms, and fresh air in summer and spring. In fall, it looks like a gold mine because trees turn bright yellow and red. And in winter, it is a real fairy tale. Recently, I was really lucky to visit this amazing place on a yoga retreat to contemplate a true winter wonderland.
Are you ready to jump on the yoga bandwagon? That’s an amazing decision and you will certainly enjoy the positive effects if you prepare properly for your first yoga class.
If you are looking to utilize your time away to soothe your body and mind, yoga retreats are the best bet for you. They are not just good for your body and mind, they refresh your soul as well. There are many places in America where you can crash for a quick yoga session. However, yoga is not about crash courses, it's a lifestyle!
Bali is arguably the most popular yoga destination in Southeast Asia. From the incredible beaches in Kuta, to the mystical rainforests in Ubud and the iconic rice fields all over the island, Bali is like a paradise on Earth. If you add in the Zen atmosphere, the culture of healthy living and the tons of yoga studios, workshops and trainings on the island, Bali is just the perfect destination for yogis all over the world.
The food here is ideal for the yogi’s diet. You do not only have lots of raw food or vegan restaurants, but you can also attend workshops and raw food retreats to learn how to incorporate this diet into your lifestyle. And there’s a good reason why the Balinese massage is famous, try one treatment and you’ll never want to leave the island!
There are many more things to do in Bali to complement your yoga practice. The waves here are ideal for surfing, the volcanoes are great for climbing, or if you’re less adventurous, you could learn pottery or do meditation. The island is inspiring to try new things, don’t waste this magic.
