At COMO Hotels and Resorts, luxurious yoga retreats are taught by top yogis in resort settings.  Rodney Yee, Colleen Saidman, and Elena Brower are the returning gurus for this year, joined by newcomer Louisa Sear. These intimate workshops provide nearly five hours of daily practice with the masters and are held at Parrot Cay in Turks & Caicos and Uma Paro in Bhutan.  Students of all levels have unparalleled access to these yogis as well as to the renowned COMO Shambhala Retreat spas.  Because of the small size of the classes, participants will engage directly with the instructors, creating a therapeutic atmosphere. The weeklong programs include six night’s accommodation, most meals, and airport transfers.  

 At Parrot Cay, on the remote, 1,000-acre island of white sand, students can take advantage of the COMO Shambhala Retreat’s substantial facilities of holistic wellness including massage, Dr. Perricone anti-ageing facials, and Ayurvedic therapies. Along with yoga, Parrot Cay offers Pilates, a gym, tennis, and a variety of water sports. This year, it is offering two retreats:
