Popular & Affordable Yoga Retreats in 2020 / 2021

A retreat away does not have to break the bank anymore.

With the increase in the number of retreat centers these days there is sure to be a yoga
holiday that matches your budget wherever you wish to go in the world.

There are affordable yoga retreats all around the world to make your yoga vacation dream come true for you.

Here is our ultimate guide, updated, explaining step by step how to find the most perfect yoga getaway for yourself as the retreat market is very busy and varied and these tips will help you make the best decision possible for your time spent away.

Finding Budget Yoga Retreats in 2020 / 2021

There are different levels on offer these days - luxury retreats, affordable, cheap and everywhere in-between.

But also if you choose well there are ways of getting a lot of the comforts and amenities
in an affordable yoga retreat.

So what's the secret to booking the best yoga retreat for yourself
With so much choice, all the different retreat centers in different locations and so many different retreats with different schedules, classes and emphasis, it can be overwhelming to find the best retreat that matches what you are looking for. If you take into account the following simple steps and criteria it should help you narrow down your search quickly and easily. After all, it's the best holiday for you that you are looking for, not a problem finding it.

Top Tips to finding the Best Retreat
1. Book as early as you can, plan ahead

Many retreats offer an early bird price. Not only will you save on the retreat price but you will be able to book

your flight early too which will make it much cheaper.

2. Avoid high and peak season if possible

If you stay just outside of high season you often get exactly the same weather but save on the cost.

And in the tropics the rainy months can mean just an afternoon or evening shower anyway.

Investigate availability in the months just before or after the high season.

Or make your way to your chosen destination in low season and enjoy much more affordable pricing.

3. Consider the Location costs

There are some general price differences based on location but they don't always have to be true.

If you really want to go to a specific location there will be an option to cater for you,
you just need to consider all factors here and search on our site well too.

And if a more expensive destination is really where you want to be then go when the prices are lower in a lower season.



Here's a breakdown of the countries for Yoga Holidays worldwide -


4. Accommodation

This is always the best way to save. Book the cheapest form of accommodation on the retreat you are really interested in.

Save on where you sleep and still get to experience of the retreat center and activities that you really want to.

You could even consider shared room options if they are available.

Convince a friend to come with you and it's as good as a private room really, at the cost of a shared room!


What are the best retreat destinations in the world (2020 Updated)

Take your pick based on what yoga holiday location you like, exactly what you want to do and how long you have to spend.
