The Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat is located on Paradise Island in the Bahamas right down the beach from Atlantis. To truly benefit from this retreat, immerse yourself into the sanctuary and let everything else go. Avoid the downtown tourist trap and instead spend your time on the grounds of the ashram. Your day will consist of breathing, meditation, yoga, and healthy eating, which will leave plenty of time for a nap on the beach or under the shade of a palm tree. Sivananda is full of friendly people looking for a yoga vacation.
