Most of us go on vacation and eat too much, drink too much, and run around trying to see all the sights or go to all the shops in our chosen destination. We get home and get back to work, but we don’t feel as rested as we think we should. This cycle is bad for the wallet, the stomach, and the brain—but fear not, we’re here to propose a new way. This winter, instead of overindulging in Vegas or Miami, why not grab your girlfriends and book a short yoga holiday on a gorgeous island where you can exercise, drink fresh juice, and spend time on the water while enjoying a visit with some of your favorite people?
