So you’ve upped you’re weekly yoga class to two or three and a home practice. Your legging collection has growing somewhat exponentially and so it seems the next step is to go on a yoga retreat. This month’s special feature in Om Yoga magazine is all about yoga holidays. A yoga retreat is definitely up there on my list (if perhaps not my student budget!) and so I thought I would share my personal favourites.
For pure luxury ~ Breath of Life Sanctuary £1400-£2500 for 7-14 days respectively.
Based in Rekawa, Sri Lanka, the Breath of Life Sanctuary offers tailored packages with variable yoga styles, with an emphasis on Kundalini. There is also the option for ayurvedic consultation, wildlife trips, excursions to local temples and opportunities to try different activities like cooking lessons
For active escapes ~ Freespirit Holidays from £500 per week.
To mix up yoga with surf and SUP, head to Sagres in Portugal. With the option of morning pranayama and meditation or family yoga alongside the Anurasana yoga offered
For mini breaks ~ Lime House Yoga Studio, from £325
Taught by Helen Clare in the gorgeous Cornwall studio, a blend of energising Vinyasa and calming restorative. There is also plenty of time for a surf or simply to enjoy the local beaches.
For beach holidaying ~ Lotus Retreat, €735 for a week
Wake up to Vinyasa beach classes on Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands, whilst enjoying pilates and a full body massage over the course of the week. This holiday will leave you with lots of time for activities, such as exploring the island, going surfing, horse riding or cycling.
