Top 10 Yoga Retreats Worldwide

Reawaken Your Chakras at These Top Yoga Facilities

Enlightenment awaits at Kalani Retreat Center, one of GAYOT's Top 10 Yoga Retreats Worldwide

The Best Yoga Retreats Worldwide

There is no standard practitioner of yoga, no ideal yogi. Some attend once-a-week Anusara classes at a local studio and grab a coffee on the way home; others have made yoga and its philosophy a way of life. What is important is that you do your best to reach your own state of samadhi, or enlightenment. Yoga resorts rightly follow suit: you can easily drop thousands of dollars for a decadent suite, Ayurvedic-inspired meals and saunas, or you might be working within a tighter budget. Our list of yoga retreats span the gamut, from a modest Bahamian ashram (complete with chores) to an all-out luxury destination in Mexico — but all share one common bond: top-quality instruction in beautiful locales. No matter your preferred style of yoga, these retreats will offer you soothing escapes and life-changing experiences. So roll up your mat and start planning your perfect yoga getaway. Namaste.
