Retreats can seem like pretty expensive and often cater for people with more money than sense. So here we've put a list together of  yoga and meditation retreats at a reasonable price. We try to keep the prices reasonable on the yoga, meditation and dance retreats that we run in the Sahara Desert in Morocco which cost 525 euros.. If you would like your retreat to be featured here let us know!
