Now is the perfect time to pick your post-holiday yoga retreat to get back on track and make this New Year your best one yet. Check out these three yoga retreats, each focused on a different type of yogi and traveler.
Luxury Yoga Retreat: The Farm at San Benito, San Benito, Philippines– The award-winning Farm at San Benito was built around a 250-year-old mango tree that is said to have healing properties. The Farm utilizes a holistic yoga program, with complimentary attendance to daily yoga and mind classes, such as Aqua Yoga, Power Flow, Yin Yoga, and Silent Meditation. Two Thai massage pavilions overlook the swimming pool and it’s possible to book a unique “Massage Under the Stars” to cap off the night. The gourmet vegan restaurant produces everything from scratch, including vegan milks, raw chocolate desserts, and salad dressings. Rooms are the epitome of luxury while retaining natural elements, with indoor/outdoor showers, thatched roofs, and comfortable patios overlooking the pools and gardens.
Family Friendly Yoga Retreat: Loews Hollywood Hotel, Los Angeles, California – We know that bustling Hollywood might not seem the best place for a yoga retreat, but hear us out: The Loews Hollywood Hotel offers dozens of yoga classes per week, including rooftop yoga on the 2,025 square foot helipad, with its panoramic views of the Hollywood sign and downtown L.A. The hotel offers babysitting services, kids’ activities, and is pet-friendly — making it the ideal retreat for the whole family. Plus, the hotel has a partnership with Universal Studios Hollywood so guests can enter Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood an hour before gates open to the public, meaning that your kids will be just as happy as you are with this yoga retreat.
Coastal Yoga Retreat: COMO Parrot Cay, Turks and Caicos - To truly get away from it all, head to the COMO Parrot Cay resort in the Turks and Caicos. This private island has everything going for it: white sand beaches, sparkly turquoise waters, daily yoga classes, and guided meditation sessions. Jump into the waves, bike along the coast, kayak or play tennis, and enjoy the resort’s exceptional cuisine, including barbecue under the stars, or food at the restaurant which serves “clean” cuisine options that are vegan, gluten-free, and do not contain sugar.
No matter where you choose to escape, a week of rejuvenating bliss is the perfect way to shed the stress and pounds of the holiday.
