Are you a bit bored by Mallorca and Ibiza? Then check out this summer yoga retreat on gorgeous and laid-back Menorca!

I have to include this since I’m going myself, woohoo! Imagine ‘glamping’ in luxurious yurt camps, the wilderness of the Gobi desert, Jivamukti yoga with Emma Henry and delicious & healthy food from a private chef. I can’t wait to explore Mongolia this summer with my fellow yogis, it’s going to be absolutely amazing.
September is the best time to travel to sunny Greece where it’s still summer. I strongly recommend joining Dagmar Spremberg & Gaudan on this luxury yoga retreat on a Greek island, designed to take you deeper into your practice while enjoying the beauty and nature of this tiny island in the blue Mediterranean waters. I’ve been to one of Dagmar’s retreats and her vinyasa yoga classes accompanied by Gaudan playing the hang music are unforgettable.
So far I’ve listed a lot of retreats in Europe, this is something for our friends in the US!

I would so love to join this summer yoga retreat! Explore the wildlife and culture of Namibia on a memorable Yoga Safari Adventure, this is a tip you’ll never forget. Tune into nature, surround yourself with the healing energy of Namibia and take your practice to another level. I checked and it seems August is a peak time to travel to Namibia as the weather is slightly cooler. There will be more people around, but the wildlife sightings and amazing experiences available make up for it.
Since I live in Bali of course I have to include a retreat on my favorite island. Summer in Europe and the US means winter in Bali and this means that the weather is perfect! Tough this also means it’s peak season, so book your space (and flights) well in advance. Located close to Ubud in the heart of Bali, the eco-friendly retreat is surrounded by jungle and rice fields. I’ve been to a retreat at ONEWORLD, click here to read about my experience.
