When it comes to all things yoga; there’s no doubt it’s a booming business. From the latest tights to the crème de la crème of yoga mats, gone are the days when practicing yoga simply meant downward-dogging, without any of the must-have accessories to go with it.
And for yogis wanting to partake in an all-inclusive yoga retreat that will benefit their body, mind, and soul, the fees are often out of reach for anyone not bringing home a significant salary.
However, there are affordable options out there; it’s simply a case of finding them. With that in mind, we’ve curated some of the most affordable yoga retreats that California has to offer. For anyone based in the Sunshine State, here are our top yoga retreats that won’t break the bank.
