3 Day Yoga Retreats in Cornwall from £99

London based Yoga Holidays announced today that it is the first Yoga School in the UK to offer consumers holidays in Cornwall (England) from £99 per person this summer. Aimed at those feeling the pinch during the economic downturn these cut price trips will last for 3 days and follow the recent trend towards ‘Glamping’ (Sleeping in a tent, tipi or yurt where bedding and other equipment is supplied).

Included in the price customers will get healthy continental breakfasts, a private tent with a comfortable mattress and two yoga classes per day. Laura Watson, Founder of Yoga Holidays stated “After doing a significant amount of research we found that many yoga retreats cost £500 or more per person.” Watson went on to suggest that this is simply too expensive for many people in the current economic climate. She also stated that “In our opinion yoga should be accessible to a wide range of people not just those with a high disposable income.”

The format the retreats will take is flexible with customers able to do as much or as little as they want. “On full days yogis will be taught twice per day, once in the morning and once in the evening, and in between it is up to them what they do. We have partnered with a number of local businesses to supply rewarding activities such as surfing, kayaking and mountain biking which can be enjoyed as additional extras.”
