If you're looking for a yoga holiday then look no further, you've come to the right place! Living Yoga Holidays truly live and breathe what they do. Chantal and Gareth were experienced yoga teachers who combine their passion for yoga with their love of travel. I first experienced a Living Yoga Holiday in 2012 during a stressful period in my life. I decided to go on a solo sojourn where I could combine travel with yoga as I felt this would be the perfect holiday. The destination was Les Passeroses in the South of France. It was the best decision I ever made and it was everything and more! Then in 2015, my best friend and I decided to go on a "girls" trip and I suggested a yoga holiday, so I went to the Living Yoga Holidays website to see what was on offer and Sicily was one of the options that spoke to me so we decided Italy felt right and started making our plans. What a truly magical experience it was! From the food to the accommodations and of course the yoga itself, there wasn't a moment where I wasn't absolutely amazed! That is what a holiday should be. We met fabulous people, ate gorgeous meals, drank fabulous wines, and even managed some wonderful yoga sessions on a rooftop patio overlooking the rolling hills of Sicily. It was pure bliss. I'm looking forward to my next yoga holiday with Living Yoga Holidays as I know it will be another amazing experience!
