3 Amazing Yoga Retreats

Yoga retreats are an incredible way of experiencing different practices in a different setting. Travel helps remove us from our environment, and take our attention away from the daily routines. When we slow down, we allow ourselves to see the beauty around us, as well as within us.
Yoga retreats are a change from the norm, a shift in perspective, and a reawakening for your soul. Your yoga mat becomes a magic carpet to see the world around you and help you recognize the infinite possibilities that lie within.

3 Yoga Retreats That’ll Blow Your Mind

If you’re due for a yoga adventure, these are three yoga retreats that I highly recommend.

1. Kamalaya (Thailand)

Kamalaya is a yoga retreat set on a beautiful private beach on the Island of Koh Samui, in Thailand. Kamalaya means ‘Lotus Realm’, an ancient symbol for the growth and unfolding of the human spirit.
Expect to experience a completely different culture through their food, spiritual ideals and unique scenery at this award winning resort.
Kamalaya offers a variety of packages, ranging from 3-7 days, with pricing ranging from $1,675 USD to $7,550 USD. All packages include: daily yoga practices, breakfast lunch and dinner made fresh from the locals, and beautifully decorated rooms or beach front villas.
There are many other amenities like infinity pools, a steam cavern, fitness center and spa.

2. Amansala Eco Chic Resort(Mexico)

Tulum, Mexico, is one of my favorite beaches on this Earth. With the most beautiful blue-green Caribbean water, white sand beaches, and Mayan ruins facing the ocean on the cliffside, there is a lot of magic here.
On the beach, you will find Amansala Eco Chic Resort. There are several retreat packages offered at Amansala, all of them include daily yoga sessions, along with room and board, and touring the local sites!
Amansala is most known for their bikini bootcamp, a self-explanatory way to get into shape in a breathtaking setting. The retreats vary in pricing from $1,800 – $3,850 USD all depending on how many days and how much yoga you want to do!


3. White Lotus Foundation (California)

Last but not least, one of the most magical places on earth: Santa Barbara, California. White Lotus Foundation hosts retreats year round that include daily yoga classes, gourmet meals, and sleeping in yurts! While you’re working through your Sun Salutations you’ll be gazing out over the canyon with spectacular views of the Pacific.
You’ll be lead by founder Ganga White, who is one of the country’s most well-known yogis. There are several retreat options, ranging from a full week to just a quick getaway over Memorial Day weekend. In addition to some awesome yoga, you’ll also join in on hikes, dances, ceremonies, and discussions over a range of yogic topics.
The retreats at White Lotus Foundation range in investment from $650 to $825. And truly, how could you put a price on your self-care?

You’re Still Here? Get Yourself to a Yoga Retreat!

She has been to 20 some countries and 5 continents in the last 3 years. “I still am jaw-dropped everywhere I go…Some more than others. Nowhere is the same… No one is the same.
