Gap Year Yoga


gap year yoga

Though originated in early 1970s, the concept of Gap Year might sound a bit new to many. It’s basically an experiential semester or year “on” for the students to implement their class room learning to real-life problems or practical situations under the guidance of expert instructors. It’s taking a break between high school and college/university to think, work and pursue something other than academics to gain more hands-on industry experience and build personal networks to boost employability.

Gap Year Yoga has seen such an explosion in popularity in the last few years that many traditional yoga retreat centers have started offering special packages for Gap Year Yoga enthusiasts. Wondering why Gap Year yoga are so popular? Because of all the physio-psychological benefits that come from attending Gap Year Yoga sessions of course!

Costa Rica has become one of the most popular Yoga retreat destinations. A Yoga retreat in a spectacular, serene environment like the one you’ll find in Costa Rica is an excellent way to get the most out of your experience. So no wonder Gap Year Yoga enthusiasts are choosing Costa Rica for their Gap Year Travel.
