What people say

All of the staff were so welcoming, friendly & helpful.

Craig Halpin

I just want to thank you for a wonderful 5 days of yoga and philosophy. I appreciate your down to earth yet comprehensive approach to all aspects of yoga.


I feel the retreat embodied everything yoga should be about- energy, spiritually, peace and growth

Stacey Ly

I am so thankful to have made some positive changes which were lacking.


Your retreat is really lovely and i really appreciated the Astanga classes having practitioners who really know their stuff.


My lasting thought of the retreat, and one which I use constantly, is sitting at the end of a practice gazing out into the forest with a feeling of utter joy and calm.


I had a big breakthrough during practice and know this is only the beginning of a life long journey of self discovery.


After 3 weeks at the retreat, my yoga has improved greatly due to adjustments which i have never received at home.


I can say hands down, that the food at your retreat was better than any of the food I ate on the island.

25 of the best yoga holidays and retreats

Yoga trips can change lives but finding the right one may sap your core strength before you’ve even started. Our picks – from Goa to Greece via Yorkshire – will make your quest more relaxing

Shaping up nicely … a Kaliyoga retreat

You can’t move for downward dog opportunities these days. The explosion of yoga in western countries means there’s a studio on every other street and such a variety of styles and options, that choosing a holiday or retreat can be overwhelming. So where to start? It makes sense to try a weekend away before committing to a whole week. One possibility is to choose a teacher you know or like the sound of and see if they’re running anything that suits. Or you could pick a venue you fancy and see what teachers are hosting holidays there. Think about what you want too – some combine yoga with other activities (maybe good for those with non-yogi partners), some are vegan, some don’t ban booze – it’s always worth asking before you book.

Most retreats will cater for all levels, with teachers listening to individual needs, but I’ve marked those particularly for beginners suitable with a B. We think all the places we’re covering here offer good value, but those that stand out price-wise are marked with a £.

There is a glossary of yoga terms at the end of this article.


Moor walks, North Yorkshire
