Top 5 Yoga Retreats for Seniors

Here at Health and Fitness Travel, we believe your age shouldn’t dictate your opportunity to reap the rewards of a healthy, fulfilling life. That’s why we’ve carefully selected our top 5 yoga retreats for seniors, allowing our wisest generation to set out on novel adventures and fortify their health, just like any other wellness enthusiast would.

Yoga not only offers a host of life-changing benefits but is also a versatile form of exercise and something which people all of ages can enjoy. This is why it’s a fantastic way for older people to improve their strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination whilst helping with sleep and reducing stress. Yoga is of course a spiritual pursuit for many people as well, and has the potential to achieve profound changes in this area of wellness. Finally, a luxury yoga retreat offers an opportunity to deeply connect with new, like-minded people who share a strong passion for this peaceful way of being.

Yoga at Ananda in the Himalayas, India 


Is there any better place in the world to perform yoga than the Himalayas? Northern India is the birthplace of this ancient pastime, and the masters at Ananda know just how much potential there is to achieve a profound state of well-being through this powerful practice. These breath-taking mountains are the tallest in the world and set the stage for deep and profound introspection, if you’re lucky, you may even experience non-duality as did English philosopher Douglas Harding many years ago. Having won awards ‘Best for Yoga’ and ‘Best for Mind & Spirit’, this will no doubt be a truly special spiritual and holistic holiday experience.
