Discover this secret little paradise on the Red Sea!
Treat yourself to a luxury yoga retreat in the charming town of El Gouna, one of Egypt's most stylish and exclusive destinations in the area surrounded by beaches, islands and lagoons and one of the Red Sea’s premier leisure destination. El Gouna is also renowned for its warm tropical climate and year-round sunshine.
Stay in 5-star luxury—our hotel offers a private beach and top-end spa. The hotel can be found next to the quaint marina town boasting spectacular architecture, restaurants and boutique shopping.
You’ll have the opportunity to take part in two yoga classes daily by the sea, and plenty of other activities are on offer to keep you entertained in between classes—kitesurfing, diving, golfing, a stroll along the marina, a boat trip or desert safari ride, or just relax by the pool or beach. All yoga levels are welcome, and our teacher modifies classes depending on your ability. Group activities and group dining are all optional—as are yoga classes. No guilt trips for sleeping in, no rules regarding food and drinks…just the opportunity for you to truly let go and relax.
Our groups are small and we welcome solo travellers—many participants come on their own and join the group.
Our yoga classes suit all levels and we modify poses so everyone can practice at their own pace.
Morning classes are based on Vinyasa flow and are energetic, while the evening yoga classes are based on yin yoga and are restorative and calming; holding poses longer, allowing for longer meditation and relaxation. The fourth morning gives you time to yourself: take a day excursion, go for an early dive, or why not sleep in? We help organize activities and dinners for the group, but everything is optional—you are free to join the group whenever you want, or simply spend time relaxing on your own.
