Who are our yoga holiday guests?
You'll meet people of all ages and nationalities, from solo travellers to couples to friends. Some are escaping the madness of their 9-to-5 lives, others are looking to reset their bodies or reach weight loss goals. Others still have never executed a Warrior II pose, while some just want a holiday with plenty of beach time, a bit of exercise and a glass of wine.
It's about expanding your mind and letting your tension go, challenging your body's abilities, strength and flexibility while focusing only on the present moment, and – most importantly – sharing laughter, stories and a healthy meal after a rejuvenating yoga session together.
All that's required is a passion for wellness, a desire to be your best self and a refusal to be boxed in.
Is this you? It looks like you.
Where will you find your ideal retreat?
Practise your vinyasa flow along the beautiful coast of Spain or in the sun-baked hills of Italy. Perfect your downward dog on yoga holidays in the tranquil French countryside or on the beaches of Greece, or go off-the-grid on a yoga retreat in Portugal.
Further afield, connect with slightly more exotic surroundings on a yoga retreat in Malta or Morocco, or escape to Thailand or Costa Rica and leave your worries thousands of miles behind.
And with professional and qualified yoga instructors leading your practice, you'll return with renewed energy and incredible memories.
Yoga retreats with a twist
If you're looking to practice more than just yoga, combine your yoga holiday with another hobby or passion.
Trade your yoga mat for a surfboard on a surf and yoga holiday or spend your morning in the studio and your afternoon in the saddle with yoga and horse riding. Mix in a touch of healthy eating on yoga and cooking holidays or learn the Spanish for 'extended triangle pose' during a Spanish and yoga retreat.
For a more creative option, blend colours and poses with painting and yoga or find the perfect angle for your next headstand on yoga and photography holidays. Or to keep it all wellbeing-focused, simply add in some Pilates.
Wherever you roll out your mat, you can find yoga holidays that free your mind and help your stress fade alongside others who are passionate about yoga. Never settle for ordinary.
