One of the greatest things about yoga is how you can do it almost anywhere – whether you are in a tiny apartment to a gorgeous mountain top. The only thing you might need is a mat and some space to stretch!
What better way to find your inner zen than with a laid-back vacation? Whether you like to do yoga by yourself, with an instructor or alongside a group of friends, these properties from TripAdvisor Holiday Rentals offer unique places to improve your yoga skills and get some much-needed R&R:
Casa Impala, Quintana Roo, Mexico
This island getaway for two infuses local tropical design with Moroccan and Mediterranean flavours. The result? A light, airy home with cosy charm and plenty of room to unwind. Do your early-morning sun salutations on the two-storey property’s rooftop deck, or walk to the nearby beach for a dynamic yoga sequence by the waves.
Casa Macondo, Santa Teresa, Costa Rica
With its extraordinary location (a two-minute walk from Playa Hermosa de Santa Teresa) and exquisite decor (a collection of antiques from around the world), you’d be hard-pressed to find a rental with more convenience and character than Casa Macondo. But it’s the property’s large yoga shala, surrounded by a lush tropical garden, that truly steals the show. Perfect for a small group session or private instruction, the shala is also an ideal spot to test your strength and balance with a few surfing lessons.
Casa Prana, Lake Atitlan, Guatemala
There’s only one thing better than Casa Prana’s spacious, light-filled yoga studio: the view you’ll enjoy as you practise here. It’s hard to beat the property’s million-dollar panorama of Lake Atitlan and its surrounding volcanoes, not to mention the manicured private garden that surrounds the home.
Laulea Kailani Villa, Kauai, Hawaii
If you’re looking for a rental that combines roomy studio space with spa-worthy amenities such as a steam room, hot tub and infinity pool, look no further than this 4,000 sq ft property in Kauai, Hawaii. Every aspect of its design – a blend of Balinese, Hawaiian and Asian elements – is tailored to maximize comfort and relaxation. De-stress with a bit of restorative yoga, then stretch out on a patio chaise and soak in views of the surrounding valley and Hanalei Mountains.
