Best yoga retreats in Wales to beat the winter blues


Yoga is an exercise well known to increase energy and brighten moods – just what we all need as the days get darker.

According to the NHS website “There’s some evidence that regular yoga practice may be beneficial for people with high blood pressure, heart disease, aches and pains – including lower back pain – depression and stress.”

Healthline adds, “Multiple studies have shown that it can decrease the secretion of cortisol, the primary stress hormone.”
