Do Your Downward Dog Down By The River at The Inn at Palmetto Bluff
If you can't head to India for a yoga retreat this summer, an alternative could be waiting for you in South Carolina. The Inn at Palmetto Bluff may be more known for its golf course, but it's offering a Lotus on the River wellness weekend that will get yogis all twisted—in a good way—outdoors. The hotel claims that South Carolina's naturally warm air and moisture will detoxify you as you strike a pose alongside the May River.
The three-day yoga getaway will include plenty of time for you to practice your flying crow pose. But the weekend will also include meditation, lectures from guest speakers and a full-moon kayak expedition.
If that moonlight kayak trip sounds especially good, you can do some more of that. The hotel will provide canoes, kayaks and fishing equipment so that you can hit the inner waterways in between all of the yoga activities. As part of the package, you'll also get a 20 percent discount on spa treatments, late checkout (as long as it's available) and a cottage with a king bed.
If you want to get all stretched out, the package goes for $449 a night and it's only available July 15 to 17.
