Since 2003, in:spa retreats has been hosting exceptional health, fitness and detox retreats, but with a quality of yoga – courtesy of our wonderful yoga teachers – that many describe as on a par with first class yoga retreats. Guests on in:spa retreats can enjoy an energising yoga class every morning and a restorative yoga class every evening if they wish. And many do! Others, though, have the option of a fun run or circuit training. That’s the great thing about in:spa, there’s so much choice and you can do as much or as little as you like.

Over the years, we have seen a steady rise in the number of people practicing yoga and many of the guests on our in:spa retreats asked us about yoga retreats, so in 2009 we introduced a new, luxury yoga retreats brand: destination yoga. Destination yoga now offers yoga retreats (from £795 for 7 nights) to a selection of gorgeous properties in Italy (Umbria and Puglia), Spain (Almeira and Andalusia), Cyprus and India and was described by The Daily Mail as “…ideal for everyone who wants to spend time learning or developing their yoga practice, and would like to do so in beautiful, peaceful locations with some of the world’s best teachers – by the end of your stay you’ll be feeling relaxed, supple and serenely peaceful.“ Furthermore, the prestigious Tatler Travel Awards recently crowned destination yoga as ‘best for yoga holidays’.

Every destination yoga holiday combines stylish, comfortable venues with a choice of daily yoga classes in beautiful, peaceful environments. And delicious healthy food with both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options.

Destination yoga holidays are ideal for all levels of yoga ability and understanding, including beginners. Our teachers are all highly regarded, with many years experience, and tend to teach a balanced mix of styles that they have created for themselves and destination yoga guests. More about our destination yoga teachers.

When guests are not enjoying a yoga class, there’s plenty to do. All our destinations have swimming pools, perfect for a few refreshing lengths or just to relax beside with a good book. Guests may prefer to walk in the magical countryside (or even arrange to go on a guided hike) or explore local places of interest. Guests can also enjoy a blissful restorative massage.

Recently, due to growing demand for destination yoga holidays, we have introduced more excellent teachers and some wonderful new venues to our portfolio. Everyone seems to appreciate having plenty of choice! There are now 25 different weeks to choose from during the year.

Furthermore, we love the fact that so many of our guests choose to return again and again to destination yoga for their holiday. We’re sure it’s because (and many of our guests kindly tell us this) of the excellent service we offer before, during and after the holiday, combined with great value for money and our superb selection of teachers and destinations.
