There’s nothing as soothing as doing yoga on the beach while the sun rises. Well, on this retreat, you’ll do all your asanas on Ursa, one of the most beautiful beaches in Portugal.

Italy

There are so many things to do and see in Italy that it’s hard to choose just one place. Not for nothing, it is one of the most visited countries in the world. But having such great tourism affluence, sometimes it isn’t always easy to find a vacation that’s suitable for a tight budget. But if you look carefully, you can still find plenty of options like this one:

Yoga on the Italian Adriatic Coast

Greece

Few places are as magical as Greece and all its islands. From Crete and the Cyclades to the Ionian Islands, there are hundreds of yoga retreats which take advantage of the Greek mystic and here’s one that doesn’t cost too much:

France
