Cheapflights UK Gets Travellers Fighting Fit for a Beach Hit

Score a Perfect Ten on the Beach With's Top Ten Yoga Retreats

LONDON--(Marketwire - March 23, 2010) -  With spring in bloom, bikini season is on the loom, and the leading flight price comparison site is helping travellers shed the winter gloom with invigorating yoga holidays.

"Whether you want to lose your inhibitions for shedding those layers of clothing or are simply in need of a revitalizing retreat after a long winter, yoga is the perfect ticket for a well rounded recharge that is both physical and mental," says Nadine Hallak, Travel Expert for Cheapflights UK

"Travel with a purpose is continuing to rise in popularity, and whether that purpose is to help others or help yourself, merging your passion for travel with something worthwhile is the way to go. Having been popularised by celebrities like Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow, yoga retreats are now plotted in some of the world's most exquisite locations, so make like an A-lister and strike a Warrior One pose," continues Hallak. 

As the birthplace of yoga, it's no surprise that travellers have sought out India for the study and practice of this ancient discipline. While southern Asia destinations are a cornerstone of Cheapflights UK's top yoga retreats, we've also found a mix of other exotic locales. Here we preview the first five, but for the full list, visit our blog at

Sedona, Arizona
Known for its stunning red rock landscape and eminent energy vortexes that are said to release calming, artistic, and spiritual vibes, Sedona radiates a mystical environment and a refreshing energy. 7 Centers Yoga Arts was the first ever yoga studio in the city. Its 1700-square foot center is evocative of Spanish mission architecture.

Morro de Sao Paulo, Brazil
Accessible by boat or small plane, this isn't quite the carnival-esque Brazil that you've imagined. Morro de Sao Paulo is one of five villages on the compelling island of Tinhare in Bahia. Adventure Brazil's yoga program guides each participant through the exquisiteness of nature and the simplicity of living communally.

Savusavu, Fiji
Setting foot in the sand here immediately sets you on "Fiji time" where sunrise and sunset are the only things you need to recognise. Daku Resort is located on seven acres of tropical gardens and tree-covered hills, where 23 species of birds and other fauna prowl the beautiful landscape.

The Berkshires, Massachusetts
Settle into the crisp air and let the mountain tranquility ease you into a state of awareness. The nation's largest yoga and holistic retreat centre, Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health offers 600 kinds of workshops and retreats, and lets you design specific yoga programs that interest and fulfill you.

Zakynthos, Greece
Also known as Zante, Zakynthos is a Greek island characterized by its clear, cobalt waters of the Ionian Sea, and blinding white beaches. Yoga center Gaia Visions focuses on spiritual development and practice, so your time is unhindered by outside distractions, and concentrated only specific personal and yogic growth.
