Departure to Europe: Your Yoga Adventure Awaits
Ah, Europe. Even the name conveys a sense of easy enjoyment and a desire for the finer things in life. No wonder Europe is such a popular travel destination. Within a relatively small space, you can sample dozens of different cultures, cuisines and experiences. You will meet locals and people from all over the world.
Traveling from the US to Europe is usually pain-free. As a US citizen, you can stay in Europe’s Schengen area (most European countries) visa-free for up to 90 days. However, be sure to check with any country you plan to visit to make sure it falls into this category.
Europe is currently the stronghold of yoga. Every European country has exciting yoga opportunities, and each country offers something different. From mountains to forests to landscapes and beaches, Europe has it all. However, a common theme throughout is slowing down and appreciating being in the moment.
We’ve compiled the 10 best luxury yoga retreats in Europe in 2020. Read on to find the best vacation spot for you this year.
