  • Yoga With A View

Choosing a yoga resort for a regenerating break means finding quiet, nature, healthy food and exercise - but also embracing specific ethical and existential principles. Because yoga is a veritable lifestyle, including daily practice but also sharing a philosophy. Here are five unique places where to regenerate and discover that another world of well-being is possible.
Silver Island Yoga Retreat (Grecia)
There is only room for ten guests on this private island in the gulf of Volos, owned for over half a century by the Christie family and later turned into an enchanted and environmentally sustainable resort. The yoga classes take place in the patio overlooking the sea, the restaurant offers zero-mile organic food and the beautiful Greek sea fills the eyes of the guests.
The Retreat (Costa Rica)
The Retreat was created to "reset the guests’ internal balance" so that they will turn well-being and a healthy and harmonious lifestyle into a daily habit even at home. Among the cozy casitas are some truly nice spaces where to practice different types of yoga with international masters and enjoy massages and spa treatments. Diana Stobo, lifecoach and founder of The Retreat, is a former chef and this makes the resort's cuisine particularly creative and interesting.
Borgo Pignano (Italia)
Between Volterra and San Gimignano, in the heart of Tuscany, an entire medieval village has been turned into a beautiful resort which was designated "the best hotel for eco-sustainability in Europe and the Mediterranean"by Condé Nast Johansens international in 2019. During the day you can practice yoga among the olive groves and take private or group yoga, relaxation and meditation classes.
Vana (India)
Vana is the Sanskrit word for "forest". The name was chosen by the founder, Veer Singh, to celebrate the symbiosis between this place of spirituality and hospitality on the slopes of the Himalayas and the lush forest that surrounds it. Yoga, Ayurveda and healthy eating are at the center of the regeneration experience, enriched by art, music and the beauty of the place.
Eco Yoga (Scozia, UK)
In the Scottish Highlands, on the shores of Lake Awe, the wood and stone lodges of Eco Yoga welcome those who want to immerse themselves in nature and silence and experiment advanced dynamic yoga with group and individual classes. The resort is energetically sustainable and revolves around water as a natural element: the still water of the lake, the rushing water of the waterfalls the warm water in the indoor and outdoor wooden pools.
