Sivananda Yoga Retreat in the Bahamas is an amazing place to spend a vacation. It’s on a small island next to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The most important thing for me was to practice yoga and relax. The atmosphere in the retreat is extremely tranquil. The teachers and staff are professional, so one can have great improvement in the yoga practice.
