5 Ways to Know If You Are Paying Too Much for a Yoga Retreat

February 26, 2017

Wanting to spend the week or weekend at an affordable yoga retreat? Maybe you are 

looking for a meditation retreat filled with mental relaxation. Or for an affordable yoga 

retreat that offers fun and playful activities. How do you know if the quick getaway you 

are interested in is a good deal for your wallet? Get ready to do some math. Here is an 

easy to follow checklist for all kinds of yoga retreats:

 

1. Compare the Retreat to a Vacation. If you were to travel to the same 

destination (whether locally or across the ocean) and stay there for the same amount of 

days, how does it compute? You need to look at what all the yoga retreat includes. Most 

yoga retreats include the cost for overnight stay, food, and some leisure activities like 

access to a lake, nature walks, or the hotel pool. Keep that in mind when you are totaling 

expenses. It’s okay if it’s not exact. Just do the best you can. Write down the prices of all 

the yoga retreat accommodations as if you were to stay in that same area and pay for the 

same things separately. Do not include any additional expenses not included in the yoga 

retreat package, such as travel. That is for a later step. Add up the numbers, and write 

down the total. When you’re ready, move on to step number 2. 

 

2. What is the Cost of Materials and Resources? Yoga retreats are special in the 

accessibility of so many amazing classes, workshops, and events that are available to you 

all at once. Think about this like you would a weekend conference. When you consider 

the price for a conference, it includes the speakers, the materials, and the value of the 

information has for you. The same goes for an affordable yoga retreat. How much would 

it cost you to attend that workshop or yoga class locally? Most likely around 15 to 35 

dollars per event or more, depending. Now multiply that by how many you will attend at 

the yoga retreat. For instance, a full day at a yoga retreat may include a morning yoga 

class ($15), three workshops throughout the day ($30 each), and an evening ceremony or 

event ($20). Together, that’s $125 for that day if you were to attend those workshops 

locally
