Spring is here! Everywhere in Europe, trees are blooming and people are coming out of hibernation. It’s time to plan a yoga holiday, friendos! I know many of you (including myself) often look towards South East Asia or South America for a retreat, but when the budget is tight and the time is short, there’s no need to go too far afield, as there are amazing options for a yoga retreat in Europe. And while some countries may seem more appropriate than others for a relaxing holiday because of their proximity to beaches or nature, I’ve found that there are fantastic options literally everywhere!

Below is what’s on my radar for this Summer. Go on, have yourself a yoga retreat in Europe!

England will always have a special place in my heart. And Wiltshire is a great reminder of all the wonderful lush green nature there is in England. With an abundance of verdant landscapes and prehistoric majesties, Wiltshire is a place that tantalizes all senses. At Jiva Healing, you can feel inspired in this impressive 17th-century water mill set in a ten-acre property of woodland and meadows. I can’t really think of a more relaxing and rejuvenating setting for a yoga retreat in Europe. What’s even cooler is that the mill is run entirely on renewable energy.

    I just joined a community based local Yoga group in Helsinki which is free. Thanks for your informative article. All the destinations look great but a yoga retreat in Prana Casa sounds amazing. I wish I could join.
