Regardless of whether you’re an amateur or professional, yoga can be enjoyed just about anywhere. From the sandy shores of Greece, to hillside retreats of Costa Rica and glamour of Miami Beach. Here we delve into three of the best yoga destinations around the world.
The practice of yoga is about body, spirit and mind, and no destination better embraces all three than Costa Rica. With luscious greenery, world-class beaches and a commitment to sustainable travel, the country is leading the way in progressive vacationing.

For the ultimate in exclusivity, one of our favorite retreats is Villa Kamala. Not only is this eco-friendly Costa Rica villa hidden in the privacy of the rainforest, but it also comes with its own movement and yoga teacher. Designed around its natural habitat, Kamala offers a zen-like paradise for practicing all those ‘downward dog’ and ‘plank’ moves.
