Great Yoga Retreats by Kristin Rubesamen
Looking for an escape to your stress-filled hectic life? Open up this beautiful coffee table book and be transported to magical and mystical yoga retreat centers from all over the globe. This book covers a wide spectrum of yoga retreats, from small and rustic centers, to posh and pampered spas, and to large yoga ashrams. The large color photos are artistically shot to show the beauty and ambiance of the setting, decor, food, land and architecture. Each yoga center profile has a brief written overview giving the author’s impression of the center and includes the contact info as well as the retreat’s basic statistics (number of rooms, teachers, food, activities, etc.).
If the retreat’s yoga instructors were profiled as well it would have been the icing on the cake, as the retreat leader is just as important as the retreat location. But overall this is a wonderful book that is inspiring to both yoga teachers and students, and will make you day-dream of far away places to take a yoga retreat.
