Looking for incredible yoga and wine retreats?
Alcohol and yoga may not seem like the most likely combination, but maybe they should be.
Yoga retreats are a time of restoration and there are few things more relaxing than a glass of wine in the mountains or a margarita on the beach.
It only makes sense to put the two together, as the yoga and wine — and beer and spirits — retreats listed below do.
These boozy yoga trips range from the sunny beaches of Saint Lucia to the Emerald Coast of Nicaragua and beyond. Feel free to share your favorite in the comments below, too!
Note: This post on yoga wine retreats includes affiliate links to top picks from our trusted partner, BookYogaRetreats. Click here to view their entire collection of yoga retreats around the world.
1. Wine & Yoga Farm Retreat At Agriturismo IPoderi (Tuscany, Italy)
While I love a good DIY yoga retreat, nothing beats getting away and immersing yourself in a beautiful place.
Located in the lush Italian region of Siena, Agriturismo IPoderi is a unique farm that offers yoga retreats packed with delicious food and Tuscan wine.
They offer daily yoga practice paired with cooking classes and wine tasting.
You get to visit a winery in the beautiful d’Orica Valley (Val d’ Orcia) while sampling some of the most famous wines in the region.
Moreover, you also get to visit an authentic Pecorino Romano cheese farm in Pienza — a perfect pairing with your glass of Chianti!
2. Yoga, Adventure & Vino At Aleusco Hotel Boutique (Patagonia, Argentina)
Looking for yoga adventures worldwide?
Patagonia is home to some of the most dramatic landscapes in the world.
Immerse yourself in the beauty of this South American region by spending a few days at Aleusco Hotel Boutique, a wellness retreat with a focus on yoga and outdoor tours, including whale watching and snorkeling with sea lions.
The resort also offers opportunities for wine tasting, so after a day of fun and relaxation, you can indulge in some delicious Argentinian wine paired with local food.

Want to visit somewhere a bit different?
Visit a yoga retreat in Armenia!
AtmaVicara offers yoga and meditation practice paired with cultural activities, including opportunities to meet locals, learn traditional dances, and visit a local school.
The retreat also organizes trips to old pilgrimage sites — Armenia was the first established country in the world to adopt Christianity as a state religion — plus a trip to the oldest winery in the world, where you get to sample local wine and learn more about ancient winemaking techniques.
6. Greek Island Yoga & Wine Escape (Santorini, Greece)
Always wanted to visit Santorini?

8. Aqua Wellness Resort (Tola, Nicaragua)
The Aqua Wellness Resort is located just beyond the Costa Rican border in Nicaragua, on the stunning “Emerald Coast.”
The resort is located in a private cove and surrounded by nature, making it an ideal spot to disconnect for a few days.
They offer several wellness programs, starting with the 3-Day Refresh Program that includes a welcome drink, group yoga and meditation classes, a massage, three healthy meals daily, and a glass of wine each evening.
There are also 5- and 7-day wellness retreats, with additional activities available.
And yes, yoga and wine are always part of the itinerary.
9. Beachfront Wellness At The Four Seasons Resort (Punta Mita, Mexico)
The Four Seasons Resort in Punta Mita is located just 45 minutes from Puerto Vallarta but offers guests a beachfront property with many health and wellness options.
Daily yoga classes are offered with ocean views by bilingual yoga instructors.
Unlike the many retreats that offer yoga and wine, the Four Seasons Punta Mita focuses on tequila with a hands-on tequila tasting and blending experience.
The custom blend will be poured into a Damajuana bottle and registered in the logbook of the Casa San Matias Tequila Factory.
10. Wellness & Wine Retreat At The BodyHoliday (Saint Lucia, Caribbean)
The great thing about the BodyHoliday is the incredible mix of wellness experiences with opportunities to relax and enjoy delicious food and a drink.
Along with a variety of indoor and outdoor yoga and wellness classes, you can go hiking, try waterskiing, go for a bike ride, play tennis, and more!
It’s all included in the price — as is a 50-minute spa treatment each day, meals, and wine.

Sunflower Retreats offers four- and six-night yoga retreats in the rustic Italian village of Casperia.
The yoga classes are suitable for all levels of yogis with classes in asana, pranayama, meditation, and relaxation. For those who want a customized practice, private lessons are available.
Though the retreat itself does not offer boozy relaxation in the evening, Casperia is home to many fine local wineries and guests can visit the wine bars in the village square to get a taste of Italian wine.
Additionally, Casperia is only an hour’s drive from Orvieto, known as the epicenter of the Umbria and Lazio wine regions.
