As hard as it is to believe, we’re officially entering the home stretch of 2020. 

Full of unprecedented and challenging times, it’s certainly a year that we won’t soon forget, but perhaps, it’s not the kind any of us were planning for.

If you’re looking for a clean slate, to set new goals, and ending the year on a high note, there’s no better way to do so than going on a yoga retreat.

It offers the perfect setting for you to reflect over the past 12 months and start anew.

Moreover, it’s an excellent way to recharge, work on your yoga practice, and prepare yourself to make 2021 truly unforgettable – in the best of ways.

So, if during the 12 days of Christmas your true love doesn’t give you a gift that you actually want or need, here’s our pick wonderful retreats spread across the globe that will definitely bring you more benefits than a partridge in a pear tree in the New Year!

Note: BookYogaRetreats offers a flexible cancellation policy. Should you not be able to travel as scheduled, we’d be happy to help you to alter your booking with the same organizer or with a different organizer.
