Looking to bring together your passion for yoga and travel? Why not try a family yoga retreat! I asked BookYogaRetreats.com to share their three most popular family yoga retreat destinations for your inspiration. Read below for family yoga retreats to France, Portugal, and India.
Human bonding is that process we all have to go through to build a close relationship. And believe it or not, some effort is needed to achieve this with your children and family. Simply living with someone doesn’t necessarily translate to quality time spent together; you must engage in bonding activities that actually make you interact and get to know each other.
A yoga retreat for families is always a good way to do that. It gives you some relaxing time without distractions, and you will learn new ways to live a healthy life and take care of your body and mind, all while spending time with your most loved ones! There are many options around the world that will accommodate the needs of your family, but here are three that will surely provide you with a family atmosphere.
Eight-Day Nature and Family Yoga Retreat in France
This summer retreat in Midi-Pyrenees, France, has been especially designed for families to spend quality time together in a natural setting. It incorporates yoga classes for children and parents, as well as guided nature walks, crafts, painting, and sculpting. Some evenings, there are campfires and singing, and many other activities will make sure your kids never get bored and that you get the chance to bring out your inner child.
The retreat includes vegetarian meals and unlimited snacks. The accommodation is in the charming and spacious La Borde Blanque, in private or shared rooms. It has a big garden, with lots of trees and a lake for everyone to enjoy a fun week.
