We often fit a yoga session wherever we can in a day, week or even month. We go on yoga retreats to get away from the distractions of life and to focus on our yoga practice, health and mindfulness. Oftentimes, retreats will have multiple yoga sessions in a day which allow you to delve deeper into your practice. We have compiled a list of yoga retreats in 2016 hosted by Seattle Yoga teachers from our yoga event calendar. Check out the local and international destinations (listed in chronological order). Get ready to pack your bags and change your life!
