Imagine going on a yoga retreat where you can build your own program and share the experience only with the people that you want. It can be either with your partner, family, friends, or on your own. 

Think about the personalized attention you’d get during this type of vacation. It’s a great opportunity to truly improve your practice, work on proper alignment and deepen your yoga knowledge with one-on-one instruction. Plus, the tranquility of going at your own pace always brings some peace of mind; you can be certain that you won’t be distracted by that advanced yogi who’s doing all kinds of inversion poses.

Well, all of this is possible on a private yoga retreat!

Many of these retreats offer fully private accommodation in a house, cottage, or villa. Some others are held in a big center or a hotel where there might be other guests in the facilities.  However, you can be sure that the yoga classes and the program activities will be just for you and your group.

Also, some private retreats allow you to choose between many yoga styles to personalize your experience even more. And most holidays include plenty of free time to spend quality time with your loved ones or doing fun additional activities to enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
