Bachelorette Party? Yoga Retreat!
Your bachelorette party should be fun and memorable, so forget the conventional “drinks followed by clubbing” idea and opt for something you and your friends will remember for years to come, like a yoga retreat. Here’s why it’s such a great idea.
It’s A Party That Feels Personal
The wild bachelorette parties, filled with strippers and lots of drinking, isn’t right for everyone. But why should you stick to a conventional idea that doesn’t make you feel excited? It’s your party, after all, so you should choose one that works for you. Much like how your bridal gown and wedding style complement who you are, your bachelorette party should do the same thing.
If you’re interested in healthy lifestyles, you love staying fit and you enjoy connecting with your best friends, then a yoga retreat is a much more interesting idea for your bachelorette party than the usual activities everyone else is doing.
Everyone Gets To Relax
You have a big wedding coming up, so you need to be able to relax to prevent stress from getting the better of you. Going away with your best friends to a yoga retreat can be just what you need to relax and unwind. Unplug your phone and forget about wedding caterers and florists for a while.
Your wedding party will also jump at the chance to get away. In a 2013 census, 59 percent of brides and bridesmaids love the idea of a getaway to celebrate an upcoming wedding. Everyone needs a break from the stress of life so a yoga retreat is a perfect idea!
You Bond With Loved Ones
Your bridal party is made up of women who mean so much to you – they’re your sisters and best friends who’ve supported you through the years. Celebrate your friendships at your bachelorette yoga retreat. It’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy quality time without distractions. Imagine spending your days attending yoga classes, followed by downtime in the form of chatting, rejuvenating walks in nature and wine-tasting or vegan cuisine? It sounds heavenly and best of all, there’s a special yoga retreat package for everyone.
Yoga Boosts Your Health
Yoga not only allows you to replenish your mind, but also improve your health so you can look and feel amazing on your wedding day. Yoga has many benefits for your body right from the day you start. A University of Pennsylvania study found that yoga can lower blood pressure, which is great to help you be more zen on your wedding day and prevent illnesses such as heart disease. Another study by Harvard University found that doing yoga can boost your ability to orgasm and increase your overall sexual satisfaction, which is a nice wedding gift to your marriage!
Stress in the weeks leading to your wedding can lead to sleeplessness, but yoga can help. Doing some beneficial yoga poses during your retreat improves your digestion – which is great if you’ve been indulging in pre-wedding parties – and therefore increase your quality of sleep so you look and feel wonderful on your big day.
You Have A Great Escape
Yoga retreats are becoming popular and they don’t only have to be in your country – you could organize one in an exotic location, such as the Caribbean. It’s the perfect way to escape real life for a while, while also giving you and your closest friends an exciting trip to take together so you can make special memories by doing something outside of the box together. This is especially great if some of your bridesmaids live far away and you don’t get to see them often.
You Can Lose Those Extra Pounds
If you’ve been working on a healthier lifestyle in the months leading to your wedding to look great in your gorgeous wedding gown, a bit of yoga can help you lose those last few pounds. It might be surprising to discover that gentle yoga can help you lose weight. One of the ways in which it works is by decreasing your need to binge, thanks to how yoga boosts the mind-body connection. So while you’re relaxing and boosting your health, you and your bridesmaids also get to boost your beauty. Nice!
A yoga retreat is the perfect choice for a bachelorette party. It combines all the essentials for you to have the time of your life: relaxation, healthy living, a gorgeous location, and connecting with your most special people. Heavenly!
