In the past few decades, as yoga has gained popularity in the United States, the number of facilities offering retreats has increased considerably, and today it’s easy for yogis to find a retreat that matches their needs and budget. Full immersion in yoga and Ayurveda can be found across the United States. These are just a few of the amazing retreats available.

On the coast of Hawaii, Kalani is a paradise all its own.
