Year round retreats to accommodate any schedule. Your stay is provided at the Bedouin Moon Hotel, where they have a custom built yoga shala.

There are two daily classes, but one day per week is yoga free, giving you time to explore the surroundings. You can go moutaineering, horse or camel back riding, or even try yoga diving! There are alot of activities to try and those are just a few.
Reviews: Bedouin Moon Hotel has 92% rating on trip advisor. Very helpful and prompt staff, great location as it’s quiet and peaceful but close enough for exploring Dahab. This hotel is known for it’s spectacular dive center.

Barbara Gordon at Nakhil Inn
Red Sea, Sharm El Sheikh, (Tarabeen) Egypt
Barbara Gordon is at it again, she normally works with Sunra (listed above) but this time it’s a beachfront resort, the Nakhil Inn. With this retreat you’ll dive right into all the aspects of Sivananda yoga, well beyond just the asanas. There is pleanty of time put aside for yoga philosophy and learning the true yogic way. This retreat is available upon request.
Reviews (for Nakhil Inn): rated 96% on trip advisor. Positives: the coral reef just off the shore is great for snorkeling, friendly staff, warm atmosphere, clean rooms. Negatives: food wasn’t rated very high, perhaps it needs a little update in decor to suit some a few people’s taste.
