How to find the Best Yoga Retreat or Holiday for yourself

There's so much choice these days of places to go and things to do when on a yoga retreat.

Trends are emerging too which you should know about as the options are growing all the time.

Here's some tips to keep you informed and help you choose your yoga retreat.


1. Vacation Destination Hot Spots

Retreats start worldwide every day with a few places still being the main retreat hot spots.

The traveler trail of Southeast Asia attracts huge numbers of people with it's yoga
community and relaxed welcoming cultures.

Thailand still tops the list with established and affordable retreat centers on beautiful
beaches drawing many people every year.


Just as popular is the island of Bali where you can choose between jungle or beach
retreats, both with breathtaking views and surroundings.

It's health food shops, alternative therapies and large yoga community make it a yogi
home from home. And there is so much you can do before or after your retreat.


Alternatively you could always think about The Americas..you could
find a retreat in Peru, Costa Rica or Mexico. All great retreat locations.

If you are looking for somewhere new to go it could be worth considering Sri Lanka.

The island has the feel and climate of Southeast Asia and has a lot to offer with new retreat
centers popping up all the time.


And then those who don't want to go too far can consider Europe for a retreat,
making a quick and easy yoga weekend of it.

Croatia is a very cool destination these days, as are the retreats of Portugal and Spain.

Or hop over to Morocco on the top of Africa to immerse in a very different vibe and culture.

2. Retreat Theme

Think about what you want to do on your yoga retreat.

Maybe you want to hold a handstand for longer.

Or you could just want to hit the beach for some sun and yoga.

So first off you need to decide what you want to be doing.


As the market has grown in popularity so too have the type of retreats on offer.

You can combine your retreat with any one of many activities these days.

Are you are looking for options like spa, detox or alternative therapies,
if so make sure to check out whats available.

It may be that you are thinking about a healthy lifestyle program, if so search weight loss retreats.

3. What's Included

Consider what's part of the retreat.

If it's a tour then does the price include all transportation.

If it's off-the-beaten track then do they run airport shuttles and local transport.

Does the retreat center have fitness, steam and sauna rooms.

And of course what's the pool like and the local area.

4. Time

How much time do you have on your hands.

If you have a while then go for a retreat with places to go afterwards.

What a nice decision. Asia, Central America or Europe?

5. Retreat Schedule

Check out the schedule. Does it suit you?

Are you looking to stay in bed late or happy to start with an early class.

Do you want an active schedule or a lot of your own time on the program.

Maybe you would like to combine detox with yoga and spend some well deserved
time enjoying massage and body treatments in the spa.

Or maybe you would like to explore meditation more than just a class a day.

6. Comfort Level

It may look cheaper but make sure you know the accommodation details of your retreat.

Retreats often price according to shared or private rooms and room type. Check it out.

Consider your accommodation type when choosing the program.

7. Yoga Style

Make sure the teacher and yoga style match your expectations here.

How many classes a day.

Are you interested in there being meditation classes and a variety of yoga classes.

Are you looking for Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Flow or the heat of Ashtanga.
Or a range of classes

If so the same teacher every day may not be the best way to go ... different
retreat centers have different approaches.

Some rotate their teachers and yoga classes giving you variety or have
multiple classes to choose from each day.

8. The Food

Most yoga retreats cater for vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free.

Unless of course it's a decadent food & wine retreat in Italy. Then you may need to ask
some more questions to make sure.

9. Socialising

A small group at a retreat center in the jungle somewhere may be just the thing you
are looking for ... or maybe not.

Consider what you want to do. If you want the opportunity to socialise but want flexibility
to do whatever you want

during your time then a small group may not suit.

A larger yoga center may be just the trick.

10. Price

There's a whole price range for retreats these days.

From luxury destination spas with treatment inclusions to more basic set-ups.

Prices vary based on venue, accommodation, program and the location.

Bali is more expense than Thailand for example.


One tip, outside of high season is always a good time to go when the cost is normally
lower for everything.

If you are on a tight budget there are still a lot of places to consider where you can find affordable yoga retreats.
