Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat
Just across the bay from Nassau, this 5½-acre beachfront ashram welcomes visitors of all faiths to participate in all-inclusive yoga vacations. Beginning at 6 a.m., a day at Sivananda includes two meditation sessions and two yoga classes, held on outdoor platforms facing the Caribbean Sea. In between sessions, a free shuttle boat provides transportation to Nassau, while on-site activities include snorkeling, swimming, massage therapy, and workshops based on themes like art and nutrition. Rates also include two vegetarian meals each day. Sparse but comfortable, accommodation options include beachfront suites, standard rooms, and furnished tents set in a tranquil coconut grove.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
