BookRetreats.com is launching its website that allows anyone to search over 250 handpicked yoga retreats and yoga teacher trainings from 34 different countries.
Whether you’re stressed from overworking, need a break from the craziness of daily life, or just want to deepen your yoga practice, you’ll be able to find and book the perfect retreat for your situation.
The ultimate goal of the venture is to help spread yoga and meditation to the world, while changing the way people go on vacation.
The launch comes as the wellness tourism industry is exploding. The industry is predicted to have a 55% overall growth from 2012 to 2017, from $438.6 billion to a predicted $678.5 billion.
Says Amitayus Haga, a yoga teacher from Portland Oregon: “BookRetreats.com is like the AirBnb for Yoga and Retreats. It’s creating connections between inspiring teachers and students who are eager to learn.”
Sean Kelly, Co-Founder of BookRetreats.com said this about their mission: “We want to help spread yoga and meditation to all 7.12 billion people on this planet. These inner technologies are true solutions for this world, and we want everyone to experience their amazing benefits.”
