Being in a retreat center where there are many areas that isolate it from the outside world can be very useful for getting inside and focusing on your practice, personal well-being, rest and relaxation.
Many retreat centers offer transformative yoga retreats, with the option of staying exclusively on their campus or taking part in excursions to explore the area and local attractions.
This is a time to get to know each other and strengthen our relationship. It's also nice not to have to wrestle with money and advice at every meal if that's all included. However, if you are a more adventurous or lonely man, you may prefer a non-all-inclusive retreat where you can see local tickets.
Does the price of the retreat include additional sightseeing tours? Depending on your goals for your retreat, you may prefer additional adventures to be included. If so, you can rest assured that you will pay for them whether you visit them or not.
If you want to explore the area surrounding your retreat, extra adventures can be great fun and another great way to connect with your group while deepening your understanding of the local culture and surroundings.
At our retreats we wanted to make this extra optional and then participants can decide which trip they want to go on and the facility continues to offer discounts for minimum group sizes.
