As the calendar turns to Spring, but the weather lags behind, you could be forgiven for daydreaming of sunnier days. 

Yoga on the Edge specialise in healthy, nurturing retreats in sun-soaked destinations in luxurious escapes from the outside world. 

No better time

It’s a common misconception that you have to be ‘good enough’ at yoga before you can or should go on a retreat. There are no entry requirements here! Anyone can harness the benefits of a yoga retreat – in fact, if you are new to yoga, the immersive nature of a retreat might set you on a path you never dreamed possible…  

Benefits of a yoga retreat: 

A deep dive into the 8 limbs of yoga. In a short class, you get an hour, maybe 2 of precious practice time, before it’s time to get back to real life. On retreat you can spend time in meditation, linger in savasana and allow all the benefits to sink in without needing to get back to everyday roles and responsibilities. 

A change of pace can help you shake off old patterns and pathways and create clarity in your life.

Community connections. You don’t have to know anyone on your yoga retreat! Whilst some people attend retreats with friends or partners, it’s not necessary – you can absolutely travel alone! Make new friends, meet like-minded individuals and create lasting connections. 

Get into nature. The beautiful locations are hand-picked to create a restful, inspiring environment. Morning meditations as the sun rises over the sea is an experience to treasure. Complement your yoga practice with coastal walks, hikes, cycle trips or an Aperol spritz in the local town! 

Nourishment at every level. Our retreats offer healthy, delicious food prepared on-site, and supported by our nutritionist. 

Sun, Sea, Savasana… 

For 2024 we have only a couple of spaces left on our Italy retreat to Le Marche, 18th-25th May. Having hosted an incredible trip here in 2023, we knew we would be back!

This year we’re offering 7 nights in our secluded luxury villas with a range of accommodations nestled in the Marche hillside. As well as immaculately maintained grounds with 2 pools, tennis court, 2 gyms, there is the jewel of our retreat; the purpose-built yoga studio, with outdoor deck – ideal for morning meditation in the jasmine-scented air. A retreat highlight from last year was the gong-bath and sound healing journey… we can’t wait to do that again for 2024!

The communal spaces are large and open-plan, inviting you to share the seasonal, locally-sourced organic menu on offer. 

We’re also very excited this year to be heading to a new destination! From the 19th-26th October, the Wild View, Portugal retreat includes 7 nights in our secluded venue in the Corgas Bravas hillside. Think lush, rolling countryside, incredible panoramic views of the Serra do Caldeirão mountains, and a luxurious setting to relax and unwind. 

There is a stunning outdoor infinity pool and sauna, roof terrace, meditation room and of course – purpose built yoga studio, deck and gym. With a range of accommodations options from luxurious, super-king-sized beds, to outdoor yurts and safari tents, there’s an option for everyone. 

As always, we can cater for any dietary requirements and all our meals are designed by Naturopathic Nutritionist Nic Charnock to help you balance your gut, your energy levels and your hormones.

This year, the yoga will be lead by Clare and Andrea with a comprehensive program of dynamic yoga, restorative yoga, meditation and yin – fully adapted to all levels.  And we will once again be joined by Nic who will be on hand to offer sports massage, nutrition consultation and workshops.
