Tucked in a pine forest on the hippy Spanish island of Ibiza, D-Lite Yoga is an elite retreat for the whole yoga family. "It's very popular with posh English moms who bring their kids," Bradley says. D-lite offers unique packages for mother and baby, weekend getaways and even a weight loss plan that promises you can lose 18 inches in four days.
Accommodation is spread out on the private estate, with most rooms set in a 400-year-old farmhouse that overlooks the Mediterranean Sea. Children up to age 5 are welcome free of charge, and there are a range of yoga, meditation and activities for them, as well as babysitting if needed.
D-lite concentrates on Shivananda yoga and dynamic Ashtanga, and offers group or private instruction for all levels. During downtime, guests can relax by the pool, take a jeep to tour the island or enjoy horseback riding through nearby fruit orchards.
Packages start at $1,252 (700 pounds) per person, including breakfast. The three-night mother and baby package starts at $2,431 (1,360 pounds) and includes yoga classes, spa therapies with nanny and even organic baby food.
Built into the jungle of Bali, the Como Shambhala Estate feels like an escape to another world. Their award-winning residential health retreat draws stylish travelers from around the world, as well as internationally renowned yogis, such as Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman.
