Welcome to Satvada Retreats

meditating on holiday
Are you looking for a yoga retreat, yoga weekend, mindfulness weekend or yoga and walking holiday? We create nourishing small group escapes for anyone seeking to rejuvenate body & soul in exceptional surroundings, in a supportive, relaxed atmosphere. Our holidays and retreats are  based in Morocco, Croatia, Norfolk and Suffolk. From September 2017, we'll also be running escapes from a Chateau in a gorgeous South West France.

As creators of long-standing online yoga magazine, Yoga Abode, and owners of Chelmsford-based yoga and meditation studio, Yoga at the Mill, we are held in high industry regard, with a trusted track record for providing exceptionally welcoming, grounded and accessible escapes. 

We are especially keen to welcome newcomers to retreats or/and yoga, and our intention is to offer an enriching experience informed by a thoughtful, balanced programme, mindful teaching and an ethos of deep self-care. Detox retreats and jam-packed schedules are off our menu!

Expect a loyal team of teachers picked for their inclusive, therapeutic approach, and deep love of yoga and meditation. We have taken our background in travel and health journalism into our scrupulous quest to find family-owned venues with a quiet wow-factor. We promise to treat you with delicious, wholesome, balanced food (always locally sourced), including afternoon tea and home-made cake!
