ABOUT OUR EGYPT YOGA RETREATS:

 

Our luxury yoga retreats in Egypt are being held in sophisticated El Gouna – the Red Sea’s premier leisure destination. We practice yoga twice a day by the sea and stay at a beautiful 5-star hotel with a private beach and wonderful spa, right next to a lovely marina town, with plenty of activities from diving, kitesurfing, golfing, spa and shopping. Our groups are small and we welcome solo travelers – many participants come on their own.

 

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. We hold classes every day except for the fourth morning so people can take a day excursion, go for an early dive, or just to sleep in a bit. We help organize activities and dinners for the group, but everything is optional, you can join the group whenever you want or spend some time relaxing on your own. We like to try out different restaurants, enjoy good healthy food without restrictions, and a glass of wine with dinner.

 

El Gouna is well known for its warm tropical climate and year-round sunshine.

 

LUXURY YOGA RETREAT ACCOMMODATION:

 

Our Egypt yoga retreat will take place at the beautiful 5-star Mövenpick Resort & Spa:

ABOUT EL GOUNA:

 

El Gouna is Egypt's most stylish and charming destination on the Red Sea – a world of difference from the busy commercial centers of Sharm-el Sheikh and Hurghada:

El Gouna is located north of Hurghada, stretching along 10km of pristine beachfront and spread across a series of islands and lagoons. The beautiful marina town is famous for its award-winning architecture blending traditional and modern oriental styles.

 

A creative and diverse community of entrepreneurs, artists, environmentalists, and sports enthusiasts have made El Gouna their home giving the town an eclectic and upscale international flavor. The area’s desert islands and secluded sandy beaches are a true paradise – you can spend all your holiday on El Gouna’s beaches and never stay at the same one twice.

 

El Gouna is immaculately maintained and offers a wide variety of sport and entertainment options, with some of the world’s best marine-based activities. The main town is a shopper's paradise with outlets offering local ethnic specialties to high fashion shops – bustling inner courtyards, winding alleys, and series of brick domes filled with bazaars, boutiques, arts and craft galleries.

 

The town also offers world-class cuisine and trendy nightspots – from superb restaurants and stylish cafés to beach BBQs and seaside bars. After sunset, life in El Gouna continues to thrive with dozens of nightspots, international musicians and local artists offering nightly performances.

 

El Gouna has been officially recognized as Egypt's most environmentally-friendly holiday destination and works hard to maintain, preserve and protect its unique natural environment. Find out more information about El Gouna.
