The 15 Best Yoga Retreats for Travel around the World

With world travel in turmoil last year everybody is looking to book their favorite retreats to get away from it all for when they can.

The trend for 2021 is for domestic or close-by travel with direct flights. Travel corridors such as those between many European countries make a big difference to where to travel as it means avoiding unforeseen problems and being sure of what you can do.

Top Yoga Countries

Popular is the idea to drive to the English countryside in the UK for a quick getaway on a weekend retreat, and direct flights holidays in awesome places like Croatia and the ever more popular Portugal which are top of the list, along with Italy as the peoples’ top 4 destination choices in Europe.

South East Asia will always be popular with the travelers who love the tropical islands with their relaxed vibes, like Bali (great option) and Thailand ,and for those who want to visit the tropics on long haul flights you will find the countries open as usual later in 201 for great retreats in enchanting places like Sri Lanka, and of course spiritual Mother India.

For Americans everybody is going to Costa Rica and even nearer Mexico, making it quicker and safe with short flights to and from, and traveling domestically in the USA is becoming even more attractive, on yoga holidays such as…

There are so many varied and interesting retreats to join wherever you wish to be. Whether it’s learning new meditative techniques or focusing on a part of yoga that interests you most, there are so many different programs to be involved in that include varied activities like hiking, the arts, fitness, detox, spa, Ayurveda, Yoga Therapy, Mindfulness and many more…..the options these days of the type of retreat to join are incredible.

There are small group retreats which are very personal and as much about the dynamics of the group as they are about the content of the workshops and classes. Often organised by individuals these can be more affordable than those run by the retreat centers.

At established venues that always run retreats and similarly at yoga hotels there is more opportunity to create a holiday for yourself and balance the retreat schedule with your time and what you want to do, whether it’s relaxation, sightseeing, working out or anything else.

Whichever form of holiday package interests you the most you can view all of the best yoga retreats that are running near you and in distant places right here.

Wherever you choose to go to enjoy your retreat time away, we hope you have an amazing time. And remember, it never has to break the bank, there are plenty of options out there to choose from.

One Love….
