Does anyone know of any good short retreats where you don't feel rubbish going on your own? And also not forced to do everything together as well?!

Shanti som in Spain is lovely. I felt completely comfortable on my own and had a calm, relaxing break, which was just what I needed. Not a group hol though you could easily meet people if wanted but absolutely fine not to. Yoga, hikes, pool and gym all there , and lovely massages etc. Delicious asian/ middle eastern style food too. They do various retreats, the healthy break/ wellbeing one includes daily yoga, the yoga one has more. The yoga is in a beautiful open air pavilion. Half an hour from Malaga airport. They do various special offers and discounts but the initial price seems a little high, in the summer anyway. Just a few days is so relaxing it's like a longer hol though.

Sweetyoga in Portugal, very knowledgeable teacher & laid back, no pressure to do anything. Totally acceptable to lie down and read all day on your own

Place marking as interested in this. Can't imagine that I'll ever be able to jet off to myself to do yoga when I have to save my work holiday for school holidays but one day I WILL smile

Marking my place.

Any retreats in Europe where you don't have to eat vegan food & wake up at silly o'clock?

I would love to go on a retreat and it will probably be a solo trip as most of my friends see yoga as a bit poncey sigh

I know this isn't a retreat but I'm offering free 4 week yoga and guided relaxation classes via Skype (personalised to individual needs) for a maximum of 10 people starting in October - as I want to get out there teaching more now I've had baby (hoping to not have to return to 9-5 - I don't think I could face that life fir a while now!!) so only looking for feedback on my business Facebook page in exchange. I'm Nikki Murfitt on Facebook. If your interested please add me & spread the word. Big mummy love xx

Has anyone been on any 3 night retreats in the UK. I am looking to go somewhere in December, and would love a recommendation. Open to type of retreat, would love to re-start yoga, have some space to chill and think, perhaps a massage thrown in, good simple food.
I am happy to post places I come up with as well.

Just returned from a yoga and wild swimming retreat with The Zest Life in Anglesey and can't recommend it enough! Truly fabulous star

I went on a 3 night retreat in Sussex with Stretching the City last year and really enjoyed it. I went with a friend but there were quite a few people there who had gone alone. Lovely venue with a swimming pool, a great yoga teacher who was so friendly and welcoming to everyone, amazing food and we were welcome to join in the group or relax alone as we wanted to. Would definitely go again if I get the chance!

That zest link doesn't work annoyingly, but will look on Fbk. Thank you lazydoll

Also thanks hazelnut for the recommendation - Sussex sounds great.

I think they do retreats elsewhere too - look for one where Ceri from natural kitchen adventures is the chef - food was really lovely. Our yoga teacher was called Mona Heap, she was amazing too but was actually a last minute substitute teacher so I don't think she usually does weekend retreats. I might go back next year sometime so may see you there!

I would love to do a short UK yoga break too. A friend recommended looking at Yoga on a Showstring website.

You could try Fair Oak Farm, near Mayfield, East Sussex. Speak to the owner, Ian... not sure if they organise retreats themselves or have retreat organisers do it for them but I know they've had a few retreats there and it's a superb venue and location.
