Scented lavender fields, vineyards, the beautiful Mediterranean coast… Can you imagine a landscape that inspires more inner calm? Think also of the artists who, over the centuries, have chosen the south of France as a place of retreat.

The region is also home to several world-renowned yoga studios and centers such as the Yoga Academy in Aix-en-Provence.

5. Kerala, India

India is the birthplace of yoga , the place where it all began with the Yoga-Sutra, the famous writings of Patanjali establishing the principles of the discipline. Unfortunately, this incredible country does not always provide the most relaxing environment for practice, especially due to the culture shock, and the crowds, which are very present. It is for this reason that we recommend the region of Kerala, a tropical paradise where you can regenerate yourself between beaches, jungle and rivers. There you can also enjoy Ayurvedic treatments and meditation courses.

6. Lefkada, Greece

Lefkada is a Greek island where we live in communion with nature , contemplating the incredible starry sky and swimming in the sea of ​​infinite shades of blue…. This idyllic setting is ideal for practicing yoga and indulging in a well-being break.

Zen meditation teacher Kim Bennett also organizes yoga retreats here that combine personal development, hiking, therapy and meditation sessions while relaxing on the beach or gardening.

7. Salento, Italy

The magnificent Salento peninsula leaves no one indifferent : from party-goers and festival-goers to gourmets, not to mention vacationers looking for a cultural break, Salento appeals to all vacationers.

When it comes to yoga, whether you want to improve your practice of asanas (postures), deepen meditation, or explore other disciplines, there are plenty of great options you will find. And during your free time, you can go on a bike or on foot excursion to discover the most beautiful sites in the region!

8. Ibiza, Spain

Ibiza is known as a paradise for night owls and electronic music lovers. But what is less known is that Ibiza has a relaxed, open and tolerant atmosphere, ideal for practicing yoga and refocusing on the essentials. The island is also home to many places to practice yoga, meditation, get a massage and enjoy delicious vegetarian meals.
