10 Vacation Homes Perfect for Yoga Retreats

Every season is yoga season. The more we see yoga retreats around the world, the more inspired we are to be part of the movement towards a more sustainable and mindful way of living. With no need to rely on the weather or any other outside forces, yoga is one of the few things you can do anywhere, anytime.

So why not do it somewhere beautiful, pristine, and surrounded by nature? Traveling for wellness basically combines two of our favorite things into one, that’s why we have compiled a list of some our favorite yoga retreat destinations and corresponding properties to host your next yoga getaway.
