meditation retreats

We live in an ever more busy, connected, stressful and complicated world and sometimes we need to find a way of re-connecting with ourselves and our inner-being....

For many and, in fact, increasing numbers, meditation is part of the solution.  Meditation is well known as a means of reducing stress and anxiety, and for improving creativity, memory and focus.  The Healthy Holiday Company has noticed a considerable rise in the last couple of years in the number of clients seeking a holiday that either focuses specifically on meditation or just includes meditation as part of the wider experience.

For those new to meditation and simply wanting to sample its pleasures as part of a broader holiday experience, we recommend joining a destination yoga retreat in Italy, Spain or India. For those seeking a more immersive experience, we recommend a meditation focused retreat at either Shreyas or Vana, both in India.  Or to Chiva Som in Thailand.  More details about each option below:

destination yoga retreats

Destination yoga hosts about 20 yoga retreats each year at a selection of gorgeous little hideaways in Italy (Umbria and Puglia) and Spain (Andalusia and Almeria).  All are hosted by outstanding and highly experienced yoga teachers who tend to include a meditation session as part of the daily evening restorative yoga class.  These holidays are perfect for yoga lovers (or novices) who want to also discover the joys of meditation.  7 night destination yoga holidays are from £695.

Shreyas Meditation Retreats, Bangalore

One of our favourite luxury hideaways in India - Shreyas - has recently introduced a 7 night / 8 day meditation retreat.  We think it's a perfect introduction to the essence of Shreyas.  The programme includes a well-balanced itinerary of yoga, meditation and pranayama sessions, rejuvenating massages, cooking classes, community exercises and nature farming.  The gurus at Shreyas offer those guests that are interested 'guidance along your spiritual path.'  7 night / 8 day all inclusive meditation retreats at Shreyas are from £1,775.

Villa Padierna Palace Hotel, Spain

The Mindfulness Programme is orientated for those who want to achieve serenity of both mind and body and offers an intense combination of meditation and yoga to revitalize and help reduce stress and anxiety insomnia. The week long programme includes a daily thermal circuit in the spa, Five Tibetans (the performing of 5 Rites stimulates the circulation of essential energy), transcendental meditation, 3 X Feldenkrais method yoga, massage and a class in healthy organic cooking.  7 nights from £3,050.

Kamalaya, Thailand

The Embracing Change programme at Kamalaya, on the beautiful island of Koh amui, is its first to focus on exploring one’s inner life and emotional disposition. Ideal for enriching your emotional wellbeing and life fulfillment.  The focus throughout is to address current life situations with effective tools to restore emotional balance.  It's suitable for anyone seeking support for life change and life challenging situations of any kind, to prevent the stress build-up that often results in emotional burn-out, as well as for targeting emotionally-driven eating habits, relationship issues including loss or break-ups, work related difficulties, anxiety and grief.  5 nights all inclusive from £1,845.

Chiva Som, Thailand

Located a 2 hour drive south of Bangkok on the beach at Hua Hin, Chiva Som is a truly world class resort offering a comprehensive range of wellness programmes, including Inner Peace.  The Inner Peace programme may be enjoyed for 3, 5, 7, 10, 14 or 21 nights.  Chiva-Som’s Inner Peace Retreat is centred on the simple mantra “Calm the Mind, Move the Body”. The first step is to learn simple meditation techniques through Pranayama and then progress to more immersive meditation classes, which are offered every day, together with yoga, massage therapies and other wellness classes.  7 night all inclusive programmes from £3,325.
