Benefits of Doing a Yoga Retreat in Cambodia

Wondering why yoga retreat in Cambodia is so popular? Of course, because of all the fantastic benefits that retreat offers! And doing it in Cambodia is even more unique.

Here are some benefits of a yoga and meditation retreat that you should know.

Connect With Nature

There is nothing like connecting with nature. When we connect with nature, we feel more relaxed and in tune with our true essence.  For that reason, many yoga retreats take place in beautiful natural sites. Is there a better way to escape the hustle and bustle of the city than attending a yoga retreat with a stunning nature surrounding?

At Vagabond Temple, you can connect with nature at a deeper level, immerse yourself in the green mountains and the blue ocean view of our yoga hall.

Separate from Technology

A retreat allows you to focus on yourself. It gives you the opportunity to disconnect from your everyday activities and find a deeper connection with your own needs. Not all retreats are digital detox, but you can combine them if you wish. A retreat is a perfect excuse to break away from technology and return to the basics. Let go of your job, social media, and other distractions and listen to your inner being.

Assess Your Current Situation

If you are stressed by your current situation, attending a yoga retreat can help you take a step back and appreciate where you are.

Sometimes it can be challenging to make a decision when you get too close to a situation and get caught up with your thoughts and emotions. Retreating helps you distance yourself from the situation and allows you to look at it with a different perception and choose the best action to take.

A Taste of Life with Purpose

In a spiritual retreat, you focus on finding the deeper meaning of life. You ask yourself the crucial questions that are usually overlooked in daily life’s busyness. Who am I? What kind of person do I want to be? What good can I bring to this world? What is really important to me? So every day in the retreat is full of purpose. The yoga practices, the meditations, the healing, and the community are all there to support you in aligning yourself with who you really are.

Your health and well-being are at the center of our attention. Every day you experience a spiritual way of living and how it feels to live your higher purpose.

Make your mind your best friend.

As human beings, the mind is the most incredible tool we have. However, most of us are overthinkers or consumed with negative thoughts. If you cannot calm your mind and are constantly thinking about what to do next, you might start to feel that your mind is your enemy.  The practices in a yoga retreat, and the closeness to nature, will provide you with an excellent opportunity to calm down the mind and find focus and clarity.

You can silence the negative voices in your head and start thinking positively—yoga and meditation help to transform your mind making it your best friend.

At Vagabond Temple, your instructors will explain and discuss various meditation techniques to calm the mind and change your perception.

Surround Yourself with Positive Energy 

One of the most incredible benefits of Yoga practice is a time-out filled with positive energy! At the retreat, you will surround yourself with a supportive community of like-minded people from around the world. All you have to do is accept the positive vibes that come to you and feel the love.

Find Healing

At Vagabond Temple, we put great emphasis on healing. It is known that yoga can heal your mental and physical health. A retreat can help you change your belief system, embrace new healthy habits and bring emotional and mental balance.

At Vagabond Temple, we use many different healing techniques to bring you back into harmony. Besides yoga and meditation, you will experience Reiki, Sound healing, chakra balancing, breathing, and so much more.

Deepening Your Yoga Practice

If you are struggling to keep your practice in everyday life or find a yoga class in your area, joining a yoga retreat has the advantage of having a healthy daily routine without interruption. It also encourages you to experience new practices, expand your boundaries, give you motivation and facilitate rapid growth.

Even the most experienced yoga practitioners can deepen their practice in a retreat. Under the guidance of professional teachers, you can expect to reach the next level.

Eat Healthily

The food in the retreat is selected with lots of attention to the taste, health, and well-being. Going to a retreat is an opportunity to eat well, healthy and tasty food without spending time cooking. You learn how to nourish your body, take care of your well-being and get to know delicious vegan recipes that you will want to embrace as your eating habit to take home.

Discover a New Perspective

Coming to a yoga retreat in a country like Cambodia expose you to a different way of living, thinking, and behaving. Cambodian people just do things in another way to Westerners. In the yoga retreat, you will also get to know people from all around the world, all with their unique way of living life.

This will give you a new perspective and manifest a profound reflection on your own life. You will get new ideas, feel more grateful for what you have, and maybe even change your whole lifestyle.

Relax, release, recharge

One of the main reasons to join a yoga retreat is to allow yourself to truly relax, release all the tension and stress, and recharge yourself with new energies and power.

On a yoga and meditation retreat, you can let go of everything and have nothing to do but concentrate on yourself, nature, connections, and the retreat activities.

Deep relaxation promotes health,  joyful feeling, gratitude to life, clarity, and emotional and mental balance. You should leave your retreat feeling refreshed and recharged after exercising your body, relaxing your mind, connecting with great people, and recharging your inner battery.
