Mostly As: You’re an Adventure Yogi Beach Bum
You’re never happier than when you’re by the sea. Whether you’re soaking up some sun on a sandy beach and taking the occasional dip in the crystal clear waters to cool off, or enjoying breathtaking views on a coastline walk, the beach is where you can truly relax.
Your next escape: How about Santorini or Ibiza?
Mostly Bs: You’re an Adventure Yogi Mountaineer
You love the peaceful beauty of the mountains. For you, the only way to really switch off and truly explore a place and be at one with the natural surroundings is on foot… encased in some sturdy hiking boots, of course!
Your next escape: Try the French Alps or Montenegro-or closer to home, the Lake District
Mostly Cs: You’re an Adventure Yogi Water Baby
Kayak, surfboard, canoe, sail boat or raft… you’re up for trying anything as long as it’s out on the water! You love the thrills and spills of water sports, as well as the more serene pleasures of sightseeing and nature spotting from the water.
Your next escape: Fancy surfing in Cornwall or Morocco? Or swap the waves for the rapids in the French Alps.
Mostly Ds: You’re an Adventure Yogi Culture Vulture
For you, immersing yourself in the history, traditions and culture of a new place is what travel is all about. Armed with your travel guide, you love wandering through picturesque streets, perusing what’s on offer at the market, visiting local landmarks, enjoying the local food and drink, and brushing up your language skills with the locals.
Your next escape: We think you’d love the cultural delights of Morocco, Sri Lanka or Santorini
All our holidays offer a varied itinerary, and alongside at least 3 hours of yoga every day, there are lots of exciting and relaxing activities on offer-catering for every type of Adventure Yogi! But the main thing to remember is that this is your holiday-you can do as much-or as little, as you like!
