Om Away From Home: The World's Top 5 Yoga Retreats
From mats to meals, there's a nama-stay that caters to the intentions you set with your yoga practice and travel style. Just be warned: you may find bliss in that om, and never return home.
Luxury: LuxYoga, Cote d' Azur, France
Get pampered while you deepen your practice in Cote d'Azur in the South of France at LuxYoga's 10,000 square-foot renovated farmhouse, just 25 minutes from Nice. The amenities of a boutique luxury hotel combined with the intimacy of a personal home will have you feeling like a guest-and part of the family. Rare wines, aromatherapy-treated bedrooms, open terraces and an award-winning private chef are all there to enhance your weeklong experience, reflecting the grandeur of a balanced yoga lifestyle, beyond the mat-at least for a week. Enjoy classes every morning and four-course dinners every evening. Four days are filled with yoga workshops, clinics and meditations, with a couple of down days to enjoy the area's culture through excursions and cooking classes.
