If you’ve decided that a few weeks into the new year is a good time to get a little bit away from your everyday home life, then there are a few places you can have an organized retreat away from “real” life!
Booking your yoga retreat
The February yoga retreats that are listed below are listed on bookyogaretreats.com.
As you look through the retreat descriptions, sometimes there are daily schedules listed and you can see if it’s something that excites you.
There are also descriptions of the various types of yoga and wellness approaches to see if it matches what you’re looking for.
And you can see what type of FOOD to expect.
There are many retreats that offer fresh organic food, and the food may be one of the highlights of the retreat. Sometimes the description will include detailed descriptions of sample meals. This is also where you can confirm if there are vegan or vegetarian options if that’s what you’re looking for. (And also confirm there are non-veg options if that is what you’re looking for.)
Another important thing that you can do is to read about the retreat instructors and their backgrounds with what type of education and training they have. This can give you an idea of what their approach is and what type of specific things you may learn from them.
And most importantly, you can also find reviews of people who have participated in the retreat.

If yoga with ocean views, and yoga on the water, sound like it can make for some good relaxation, then a sailboat retreat may be perfect for you!
After all, there is some science that says that the ocean is good for the soul! Well, more specifically that it can have a calming effect on the mind, but you can also take that to mean that the ocean is good for the mind, body, and soul. (This can also be a good reason to look for coastal retreats! You may also consider looking into yoga retreats along coastal California too.)
So you can make it a sail and yoga retreat any time in February (you choose your date, based on availability of course), and it comes with 3 nights accommodation included. There is also a 2 days/overnight retreat available.
And, your accommodation is on the boat! So if you’re also looking for a memorable experience, this can be a good retreat to choose too. If the weather’s clear there can see some stars by watching the night sky too.
February temperatures in Sarasota usually gets up to around the mid-70s and the low is in the mid-50s, so you do still want to pack some cold(er) weather clothes.
Yoga styles that may be practiced include hatha and vinyasa.
This sailing wellness retreat requires a minimum of 2 people, and may be up to a group of 6 people.
