These here United States are full of magical, awe-inspiring places to take a yoga retreat. No matter what part of the country is calling you, we know just where to go to find a little bliss, eat consciously, support local artisans and farmers, or simply explore something new and beautiful. Here are our top picks for the best yoga retreat locations in the country.
California is jam-packed with natural beauty. We could write post after post on the Golden State alone! That’s why this Western beauty gets two retreat spots: one in the rugged north, and another in sunny SoCal.
Big Sur: If you’re visiting San Francisco, you can’t leave without hitting the Pacific Coast Highway and driving to Big Sur. The majestic Redwoods, the gorgeous California coast, amazing hikes, and a famous spa means there’s a little something for everyone’s kind of zen.
The epitome of California luxury. Stay in the resort for arresting views of the coast and the canyons or connect with the outdoors on one of their “glampsites”. Don’t leave without booking a service at their renowned spa.
If you’ve seen the Redwoods and gotten your fill of the coast, head to the idyllic village of Carmel. The European village, with its fairytale cottages, is absolutely adorable, and their Mindful-by-the-Sea program is an amazing way to root yourself in its simple beauty.
Ojai: Nestled in the mountains, Ojai is the mystical heart of free-spirited Los Angeles. Explore the village’s quaint downtown, immerse yourself in its magic, and don’t forget to catch one of its unforgettable pink sunsets.
Glamping at its finest! Each safari tent has a wood stove, luxurious bedding, and the cutest en suite bathroom. We also loved the morning hot chocolate in the community tent.
You can’t miss Going-to-the-Sun Road from Lake McDonald to cross the Continental Divide. Not for the faint of heart, but worth every jaw dropping switch back.
We don’t have enough wonderful things to say about this wild, raw place, and we can’t wait for our retreat at C Lazy U Ranch next month. This top 10 list from our Colorado local friend Elizabeth is a great place to start, and we’ve got some killer picks of our own.
Our hideaway in Granby is just 14 miles away from the Rockies. Hike one of the park’s many trails or just set aside a day to explore.
Located just 100 miles south of Richmond on I-64, this gem is so much more than the Oceanfront. Surround yourself in nature at the parks and marshes, dip your toes in the Atlantic, and treat yourself to fresh-caught, locally farmed cuisine.
Located in Virginia Beach’s rural Pungo area. This charming little cottage takes advantage of its nearness to some of the region’s best farms by featuring fresh, local produce. Gluten free and vegan options are available alongside a full menu of Southern classics.
Connect with Mother Earth by immersing yourself in this magnificent little ecosystem, home to many threatened and endangered species. Guided tours are available, but we recommend exploring the eight miles of trail on your own!
Full of colorful homes, swaying palmettos, and Southern charm. The Holy City is steeped in culture and the beautiful weather makes it a great place to get outside.
Cathedral Rock, one of Sedona’s stunning red rocks, is pulsing with sacred feminine energy. Bring your mat to flow or simply sit and meditate, absorbing this incredible gift from the Earth.
Our last retreat of the year will take us back to the lavender fields of Los Poblanos. Check out our recent New Mexico Wellness Guide for a closer look at the Land of Enchantment, but if we had to pick our favorites…
It’s one of our favorite hideaways for a reason. If you can’t join us on a retreat there, be sure to take a guided tour of the lavender farm, which is one of the oldest in operation. Don’t leave without one of their gorgeously scented lavender products.
