Travel Forums Africa and The Middle East Looking for yoga and meditation retreat recommendations

Hi all,

I'm looking for yoga and/or meditation retreat recommendations in the Middle East or Africa. Somewhere safe for solo travel, clean, good food, coastal or at least in nature. Looking for any 1- 10 day range.

Most online searches have minimal reviews so keen to get feedback from someone that has been or heard good things about a retreat.

I'm thinking of May but open to all year around recommendations. I would be flying from London, England.

Thanks in advance!

Also look into Thailand. Since you have been to Myanmar and Bali you might find this country worthy of a visit.

Easy to get around in Thailand. Good rail and bus service, several airports, road signs in English, good food, lots of history, etc. Thailand is reasonably safe and tourist friendly. Good beaches, warm weather. Choose one of the beaches good for the month you visit.

(Safety often depends on not consuming too much alcohol and doing something risky!)

For May, look into Koh Samui, Ko Pha Ngan and Koh Tao. For me, Bangkok, like London, is worth a visit for most tourists.

Can't personally speak for yoga and meditation retreats - but I have read posts on several forums asking same question. Google "retreats in Thailand" and see if something looks interesting, Like Bali, a long ride from the UK, my suggestion is at least a couple weeks if you can.

Up to you.
