Yoga, it seems, is here to stay. With a staggering 20.4 million Americans practicing, this rise in popularity carried over into vacationing — The Travel Channel reported an increase in yoga vacations in 2013. Whether it’s an intense, full-body practice you’re looking for or something a bit more relaxing, there are retreats appearing in cities all over the world for just about every niche.

 

Here are three of our top picks:

 

1. Purple Valley Yoga: Goa, India

Located on the serene coast of Goa, India this yoga retreat is as traditional as they come. In addition to the Ashtanga practice, they also offer massage, Ayurvedic therapies and spa treatments to create an internal and external rejuvenation.

2. Orion Healing Centre: Koh Phangan, Thailand

This island location is well suited for their focus on detox as well as yoga and its accompanying therapies. They provide personalized programs to accommodate many of the different needs people have to cleanse from the modern world. Five-day retreats, including accommodation, start at $565.

 

3. Kalani: Pahoa, Hawaii
