From therapy to relaxation to just plain fun, aerial yoga is one of the most versatile styles around. It can also be one of the more difficult ones to find, due to the equipment needs that go along with suspending yourself in a mid-air inversion. That’s why we went on a super top-secret hunt to find the perfect spots to host an aerial yoga retreat.
Calle la Union, Costa Rica
This elegant eco-lodge, located in the heart of the Costa Rican rain forest, boasts a stunning floating yoga deck that overlooks the majestic Whale’s Tail Peninsula in the South Pacific. Think safari in the jungle, nature all around, with 5-star service. The cuisine is 75% organic with as much sustainably grown seasonal food fresh from the on-site farm as possible.
St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands
Nestled on the island of St. Croix and bordered by the Caribbean Sea, this eco-conscious retreat combines yoga spa luxury with beautiful beachside living to create a peaceful sanctuary to embrace healing, organic foods, sacred arts and caribbean culture. The space features a beautiful yoga studio, full ayurvedic spa, and Caribbean cafe serving locally sourced, vegetarian friendly organic meals.
Specializing in pampering retreat participants with delicious meals and personalized attention, this stunning spot has hosted numerous retreats, from the Dalai Lama´s monks, who blessed the birth of the retreat center, to a wide variety of workshops following different spiritual paths such as yoga, meditation, shamanism, and holistic energy healing.
The objective here is to maintain the area’s natural and ecological flavor. Located four kilometers from Sian Kaan reserve area in a beautiful stretch of beach where the ocean is composed of seven tones of blues and the sand is powdery white, this spot depends on wells for water and generates its own electricity. All this magic makes the ambience perfect for spiritual work.
