Yoga at home is okay, but a yoga retreat is way better. Why not go to a place with people who share a common passion? They can help you along and even teach you a few things along the way.
The yoga retreat phenomenon is a new one within the past 10 years or so, but it’s certainly becoming increasingly popular.
Here are the best yoga retreats money can buy…
1. Annual Women’s Yoga Retreat with Colleen Saidman Yee
Late February is all about Tulum, Mexico. The coastal town in Mexico’s Caribbean region is home to Colleen Saidman Yee’s women’s retreat. In addition to enjoying plenty of yoga, you’ll also have plenty of time to lay out in the sun and bask in the warmth.
It’s a great winter escape from the cold north.
2. Blooming Lotus Yoga in Bali
Bali is apparently the epicenter of yoga. It’s home to several retreats throughout the year, and this one might be the best. Blooming Lotus Yoga offers a healthy balance of activity and exploration.
3. EcoYoga Retreat in Scotland
It’s the opposite of tropical, but it turns out that yoga in Scotland is a thing. Don’t worry, you won’t have to freeze out in the cold. There are plenty of saunas and hot yoga workouts to keep you sweaty and busy.
4. Yoga for Bad People in Cuba
Cuba is now a growing tourist spot for Americans, meaning that yoga is the new normal. Called Yoga for Bad People, the program is offered in December on the island, but it’s also available throughout the year in different places across the planet.
5.Kripalu in India with Larissa Carlson
India is the place to be in May if you’re a Yogi. Larissa Carlson hosts this journey to the roots of yoga and meditation in Gandhi’s land. Carlson offers twice-daily yoga exercises aimed to teach and renew. It’s truly the kind of trip you’re never going to forget.
6. Soma Prana Flow and Prana Danda with Shiva Rea
Santorini, Greece is the beautiful locale of this annual yoga retreat. Shiva Rea’s “living flow ocean ashram” on the Mediterranean Sea is certainly a sight to behold and take part in. It’s also not terribly expensive, costing a little more than $1,200.
There are so many yoga retreats offered around the world that you’re sure to find one which fits your needs and budget.
The alternative of course, just do your yoga at home.
