4 of the Best Yoga and Diving Retreats
While some people dream of going to a vacation that provides them with an adventurous and extreme getaway, others are more interested in a calming and health-beneficial destination. Speaking of such activities, both yoga and diving appear at the very top of the list. Not only are these two activities calm, relaxing and mind-opening but they also help you learn something about nature, the world and, at the end of the day, yourself. With that in mind and without further ado, here are four of the best yoga and diving retreats in the world.
Inspiring trip to St. Lucia
Probably the first place you need to visit on this voyage is the famous St. Lucia, place renowned for its beautiful beaches, Pigeon Island and some of the most incredible local art in the world. Apart from this visiting St. Lucia is a genuine body holiday due to its numerous and extraordinary fitness sessions throughout the day. As for the diving, one of the things that makes it so amazing in St. Lucia is the fact that the fish population is both high and varied. You even have a chance to encounter an octopus, cuttlefish or an eagle ray while snorkeling.
Serene and tranquil Lizard Island, Australia
The amazing Lizard Island is located at the Great Barrier Reef, which means that you get a chance to dive in the vicinity of the largest living thing on the globe. Speaking about establishing the connection with the world around us, it really doesn’t get any better. So, get your diving equipment, book a holiday here and start exploring the serene and tranquil depths of Lizard Island. After the day of diving, there’s nothing more fulfilling than being able to relax your mind and body in a yoga session.
A spiritual journey to Thailand
Every world traveler knows that Thailand is a promised land for those who travel for spiritual reasons, as well as for those who are interested in lush wildlife and beautiful landscapes. In other words, this is a land that simply has it all. For those who want to learn how to dive, visiting Koh Tao should probably be a top priority. In fact, one of the unique things about diving here is that you can see a wreck of a U.S. Navy ship Sattakut which is also an interesting piece of history. Needless to say, this can make the prospect of diving here even more interesting. This place is also a home to a renowned yoga studio, which satisfies the other dimension of what we’ve just talked about.
Exploring your mindfulness in Bali, Indonesia
At the very end, it is no secret that Indonesia is a go-to destination for every serious diver out there. The best thing about diving in Indonesia is the fact that the place is so vast that it offers a wide array of different diving experiences. However, if you had to further localize your visit, going to Bali is definitely not a decision that you’ll ever come to regret. Here, you’ll find areas that are beginner-friendly, for those willing to start out, as well as places for more seasoned divers. As for the yoga, there are more than several places where you can find the spirit of yoga, particularly various yoga retreats.
Due to the popularity of both of these activities, it’s fairly easy to find a location that entails both of them. Still, the availability alone is not enough. No matter how fulfilling, you can’t dive and do yoga 24/7.
