10 REASONS WHY YOUR NEXT VACATION SHOULD BE A RETREAT
A vacation is often the motivation we use to get through the daily grind. It’s our carrot, those escapes from the
endless ‘to do’ lists. We use them to recharge, reset and relax so that we can return to the world reinvigorated.
For many, a vacation is the opportunity to do nothing, but to be truthful most of us are only good at nothing for
a few days and then we get bored. A retreat can provide you the opportunity to escape the rat race, indulge in
the local culture and focus on a little self improvement at the same time. It can stimulate our senses, rejuvenate
our passions and help us focus on what we want our lives to be about.
Here’s 10 great reasons why a retreat is better than a vacation.
1. IT’S ALL ORGANISED FOR YOU
A retreat is organised for you. Be it a couple of days or a whole week, your days will be planned. Your meal times
and locations are also planned. Retreats are designed to maximise your experience in the specialisation and avoid
all the hassles of planning your days. At Koro they believe in exclusivity, all retreats are kept to small numbers so
you receive personalised attention from your facilitator.
2. YOU GET AN INSIDER’S VERSION
Your specialised hosts have done it before. They know the location, the staff, and how to get things happening
fast so you can focus on learning your new skills without interruption.
3. EXPERTS IN YOUR FIELD
Your hosts are always experts in their field. They have years of experience in teaching in their specialisation.
They have spent hours and hours planning your retreat so that you leave feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and
empowered about your new skills.
4. FAST TRACK YOUR ACCESS
Paradise is a pretty good backdrop for learning. When you are relaxed in a beautiful location and your fresh
coconut drink is on side, your body and brain find it so much easier to take in new info.
5. LOCATIONS TO REMEMBER FOR A LIFETIME
You’ve got to admit that the regular yoga room or smelly art studio is a long way from the tropical paradise that
is your backyard when you stay at Koro. You’ll will definitely remember when you mastered that ‘Salute to the
Sun’ pose when you executed it under a rosy southern sunset, or that moment when you were sketching in the
rainforest and a butterfly landed on the edge of your sketch pad to critique your work. Those memories, those
special moments when you were so lost in the ‘practice’ will last you a lifetime because they were staged in
6. EXPEDITE YOUR LEARNING
Once you have left the rest of the world behind, away from the daily interruptions, you will surprise yourself with
how much you will absorb of your new found focus. Learning in paradise is a sure fire way to fast track your
7. NO INTERRUPTIONS
All of the workshops are designed for you to maximise your learning and indulge in the process. No phone calls
or transportation to organise. From the moment you step off the plane, Koro will take care of you.
8. SPECIAL TREATMENT
When you join a retreat you get special treatment. This means lots of extra bonus’s that may include exclusive
manager’s cocktail parties, private beach picnics and bonus spa treatments.
9. NEW SKILLS TO TAKE HOME
Our specialists design all their retreats will skills that you can take home and integrate into your daily routine. At
the end of your retreat they will give you some easy ways to incorporate your new skills into your lifestyle and
provide you with ongoing options to extend your practice.
10.THE PERFECT COMBINATION
A retreat is the perfect way to chill out and maximise your experience in paradise. For the time poor, overworked
and under appreciated (yes, its everyone of you!) you can indulge yourself for a week in paradise and get skilled
up and educated at the same time. And don’t worry if you have partners or family who would prefer to chillax
while you run that hill, paint that picture or extend your warrior pose, Koro always has ‘non partner’ options. For
the kids, there’s the daily Kids Club, and for the babies they have a nanny service included daily!
Now you have 10 reasons to tell others your next self improvement class will be in paradise. Start visualising
those amazing movements. From the reef to the rainforest, a retreat is the ideal way to upsize your vacation
