In many ways, yoga is about the internal feelings and changes that the practice brings. The true beauty of yoga lies in what happens in your soul and body. However, having a serene setting for your practice doesn’t hurt. Getting away from your typical studio or home setting in order to practice in some other beautiful yoga retreat setting can break up the monotony and deepen the meaning of your practice.

For Beach-Loving Yogis

When you picture your ideal yoga retreat, do you imagine sand, sea, and sun? Beaches can provide excellent settings for yoga practices. You can let your pain and troubles wash away with every outgoing wave, then breathe in comfort and strength as each new wave crashes. 

Several of the retreats on My Tripwell offers yoga retreats on or near beaches. In the United States, these locations include:

  • Boca Raton, Florida
  • Clearwater Beach, Florida
  • Santa Margarita, California
  • Malibu, California
  • Kihei, Hawaii
  • Princeville, Hawaii

Looking to stick your toes in sand abroad? These beautiful locations offer incredible beaches for your yoga practice:

  • Troncones, Guerrero, Mexico
  • Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico
  • Baleric Islands, Baleares, Spain
  • Taghazout, Agadir, Morocco

Inhale Fresh Mountain Air

While the beaches provide calm and inviting settings for yoga practices, they don’t have a monopoly on beautiful settings. Sometimes, getting a breath of fresh mountain air is just what your practice needs. 

One popular destination for mountain-side yoga is the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. For example, one My Tripwell retreat in Evergreen, Colorado combines hiking, yoga, and healthy eating for a wellness-focused getaway. Similarly, many getaways in Salt Lake City, Utah use personalized wellness plans, which may include yoga. Both of these United States destinations provide scenic views, fresh air, and perfect backdrops for your practice.

Of course, the United States is not alone in providing beautiful mountains for yoga retreats. Those who are looking for a mountain getaway in Europe may enjoy The Ranch Dolomites in San Cassiano, Umbria, Italy.

Looking for a mountain with more of a jungle vibe? San Pablo, San Jose, Costa Rica offers incredible views and excursions. Enjoy your practice among the trees and all the animals who live in this jungle. Make a trek down the mountain to the beach and practice there, if you’d like. It’s the best of both worlds.

Infuse Your Practice with Spirituality

Indonesia is one of the most coveted destinations for serious yogis for many reasons. The country’s deeply spiritual and Hindu roots, it’s the perfect place to strengthen your yoga practice. This is especially true if your practice has felt stale, Westernized, or purely physical lately. Getting in touch with the spiritual roots of yoga can help you remember why this practice is so important. 

Not only is Indonesia beautiful for the soul, but its abundance of natural landscapes makes it a feast for the eyes as well. Whether you want mountains, coastlines, or cityscapes, you can find beauty in this country. My Tripwell offers several wellness retreats in Indonesia, specifically Bali. For example, one eight-day retreat provides insights into Bali’s unique culture and your own soul. Another offers some of the most stunning views for yogis and everyone else.
