If you're wondering what a wellness holiday entails or you wish you were able to practise Pilates or yoga somewhere nice and hot then we can help you set out on the road to rejuvenation. Far from being a holiday for hippies, wellness holidays allow you to rest and revive in your own way with healthy meals, like minded groups and expert exercise instruction ensuring you get to have your carrot cake, and eat it.
Yoga retreat activities
We really are what we eat and what you put in to fuel your body on a yoga holiday will determine what you get out
Yoga & nutrition
Blissfully, it’s practically impossible to make unhealthy food choices on a yoga holiday. Most retreats will serve a predominantly vegetarian diet alongside very healthy, cleansing snacks and litres of water, which will all be explained through interesting nutritional workshops.
Our Yoga Holidays
Yoga & fitnessIf you want to kick start a new health regime, or finally shift those last few stubborn pounds, yoga holidays with a fitness angle are a great way to cram loads of additional exercise in without really realising it. Combining a targeted fitness programme with your daily yoga practice, fitness at a yoga retreat means shaking up your long-term lifestyle rather than slogging it out for hours on an uninspiring treadmill and you can expect additional classes like Pilates, circuit training, core work, coastal treks and mountain hiking served up with lots of motivation and support and a useful course in meditation to relieve stress and encourage restful sleep.
Gulet cruising, horse riding, hormone balancing and dance - all things you might not expect to fit the yin to yoga's yang, but that do
Yoga & the unusual
Each and every one of a yoga holiday’s unexpected counterparts are about letting music and nature lead the way, so that you’re more aware of your surroundings, your yoga practice is more focused, and this leads you to a greater understanding of the other activity at hand.

Yoga & water
With its feet firmly planted in the ancient and the spiritual, it’s not surprise that yoga has a deeply ingrained relationship with each of nature’s five basic elements: earth, space, fire, air and water, the latter featuring heavily in all manner of combined yoga holidays. Super sporty types can team their yoga practice with surfing on the southern coast of Portugal or diving on a stunning island in the Maldives. For something less taxing, but with an exciting exploratory kick head to Spain over the summer and pair twice-daily yoga sessions with a spot of paddle boarding or sea kayaking.
