Places We'd Love to Do Yoga
After a refreshing swim in the cool, glistening, turquoise waters of the ocean, you are wringing out your towel, and are about to continue your day’s detox by wringing yourself out – through yoga. Besides the regenerative benefits of improving mental, physical, and emotional health, there are several more reasons to extend your practice of yoga and mindfulness.
Through meaningful experiences and a setting that allows you to fully immerse yourself into your practice, Regenerative Resorts strives to deliver a loving and rejuvenating environment that allows you to disconnect, so that you can reconnect. Each individual resort is designed to embrace environmental and ethical practices so people and places can co-exist and grow together sustainably. These resorts provide the om, or “sounds of the universe,” an environment which allows you to easily enhance your overall well-being and promote longevity. Let the stillness and peacefulness of the place enhance your practice, foster relaxation, relieve anxiety, and refine resilience. Engaging opportunities at each resort allow you to connect to people and place, as you become part of the community and further your connection with nature, all while teaching you to express gratitude for wherever you’re at in life. From pristine backdrops, to a tranquil atmosphere, the slow pace of your trip will stimulate your mind and nourish your body through quality experiences we know you deserve.
The Regenerative mantra helps you stay connected long after your trip ends through enriching retreats and encouraging awareness. These resorts offer plenty of ways to get involved, escape the grind of your daily routine, and continue your practice off the mat by cultivating energy produced through bhakti, or love and devotion. You will walk away knowing you have made an impact through your involvement and bring a stimulating mentality home to loved ones. By pausing, reflecting, and setting intentions, these resorts will help you work to become the best version of yourself, a lasting souvenir worth more than any material object could deliver.
