Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned yogi, there’s no better way to take your practice to the next level than with a yoga retreat.

Imagine sinking your feet into soft sand as you ease into sun salutations, or stretch into a downward dog as the majestic mountains surround you.

And while you’re at it, why not try some other unusual yoga variations like Aerial Flow or Acroyoga?

1. Koh Samui, Thailand

What to try: AcroYoga

A physical practice that combines both yoga and acrobatic movements. The best part is that you do not need to be a master gymnast, acrobat, or experienced yogi to enjoy it.

It doesn’t matter if you can’t do a perfect headstand, or touch your toes, you’ll still be able to attempt AcroYoga.

As shared by a yogi provocateur Daniel Scott, this form of yoga is a practice of substance, not flash. You’ll learn the necessary building blocks to take whatever physical skills you have to new heights.

Escape the 9-to-5 and focus on your personal growth and evolution, be it physical, mental or spiritual. You might even meet new friends at your AcroYoga!
