Welcome! Ready for adventure? We offer exquisite and powerful yoga and meditation retreats set in some of the most beautiful locations around the globe. Each week-long retreat boasts an exotic location, full immersion in culture & yoga study. Prepare to relax and explore, surrounded in unsurpassed beauty…

At Beloved Retreats we create an environment for you to explore the inner and outer worlds of health, vitality, consciousness, and limitless love, through ancient yoga philosophy, modern western science, explorations of consciousness, meditation, yoga practices, and empowerment.

Our retreats are a beautiful balance of educational content, luxurious relaxation, and deep rest for your mind, body, and soul. We take the time to truly retreat and restore, while also exploring the rich culture and history while abroad. We emphasize cultural immersion and giving back to the International communities we visit while on retreat, while embarking on deep and beautiful inner study.

Our intention is to create an environment to experience samadhi, or enlightenment, through witnessing your own divine self in all beings, reflections, and experience through travel, and week-long immersion abroad.

Make lifelong friends! Dive deep into introspective and philosophical study of yoga. Purify mind, body and spirit. Reboot and recharge. Express your highest, most optimal self through conscious awakening practices.

So, what’s a retreat look like?

Beyond a simple week vacation. On retreat you will have the opportunity to delve into yoga study, enliven your life, stir up your conscious awareness, and build powerful knowledge of self.

There are two types of trips. For our Rest Retreats you will stay usually a luxurious villa or a house abroad in just one location for the entire week. Usually there is a private chef, and we do very focused daily asana and yoga study in the mornings with local excursions in the afternoons. Bali, Thailand, Greece, Mexico, and Maldives have all been trips like this.

The second type of retreat are our Pilgrimage Retreats. Here we traverse the country on a 7-14 day adventure, staying in different 5-star hotels and villas along the way. Again, we do daily yoga and meditation, but lectures and workshops are sprinkled throughout the day depending on what type of cultural immersion tour we are doing that day. The intention is to learn about the culture of the country, while studying yoga philosophy. Morocco, India, and Peru have all been trips like this.

Both types of retreats offer an educational component. Our week-long Teacher Training modules count for 50 hours of CEU credits through Yoga Alliance, or your 500 RYT Yoga Teacher Training Program. Group sizes are usually 10-20 attendees.

How can I get my 500 RYT certification?

We have options for 200, 500, and CEU continuing education hours through attending retreats. Click here for details.
