What’s Queenly?

They work in unusual locations so are ideal if you want to combine a healthy holiday with exploring some of the world's most remarkable places with an experienced retreat company. They combine practising yoga with world class teachers with bucket list adventures so you can experience the Northern Lights, Midnight Sun, Arctic adventures, exotic private islands and more. They are a positive impact retreat company, with a clear responsible travel plan and work closely with local partners.

What’s Lowly?

The locations and quality of these retreats means they are not cheap but you get a lot for your money. The yoga style is dynamic and challenging (although tailored for all levels) so it requires a commitment to classes. Most locations are quite remote, requiring a fair bit of travel.

Read our honest, in-depth reviews

Our reviewer Kim Willis loved her yoga adventure retreat in Iceland with Reclaim Your Self and found stunning scenery, hygge and a new best friend, while on her Reclaim Your Self digital detox and yoga retreat in England our reviewer Ruth Rosselson defragged with Jivamukti and tasty veggie food in the beautiful Bedfordshire countryside.

This was an incredible trip with incredible food (as told by a chef)! This experience was unforgettable. A perfect balance of yoga/relaxation and exploring/adventures. Jools and Emma were amazing. Highly recommend!

Totally recommend this opportunity to see aspects of Japan and Japanese nature and culture less accessible to general tourists, combined with knockout yoga, amazing food and wonderful company .. all delivered with care, respect and a healthy dose of humour. Life affirming!

To anyone wavering about visiting Mongolia, get your names down while you can, it is such an amazing place. The endless skies and awesome landscapes are totally inspiring – as is the sense of quiet, space and freedom which affected us all.
This was such a special trip. As ever, courageously and thoughtfully put together and attentively overseen by Jools. This time supported by her amazing team of Emma, Bettina and Elodie and a cast of beautiful spirited locals. Further assisted by very large yaks, camels, wild horses and their stylish horse whisperers or a fleet of jeeps.
Much more than a great yoga holiday with a great teacher, it was a real adventure. Whether camel riding or hiking across ethereal Gobi landscapes, leaping over swollen rivers or riding through fluorescent meadows of wildflowers, whether enjoying hot saunas, fab massages or lovingly prepared food – we felt blessed. Not least because we were sleeping in cosy yurts beneath the stars, but because we were miles away from digital distraction, this felt like a proper retreat.
Just wonderful. You deserve it too. Just go!

The Japan trip was amazing. I felt so refreshed and rejuvenated when I got back, it was a total break from life, fascinating country, fantastic yoga and beautifully organised by Jools.
Emma is the best yoga teacher I know so I always love going on trips with her. It takes a special person who can fly across half the world, turn up in an unfamiliar yoga space and create such a warm and welcoming atmosphere where everyone can get deep into the yoga and challenge themselves. Needless to say she did this and the yoga was the best ever.
The rest of the yoga retreat was such fun, a variety of things to see (temples and shrines), bathing in the onsen baths and the traditional the tea ceremony was a highlight because I ADORE matcha tea. Everything ran smoothly thanks to Jools’ amazing organisation. The food was incredible too, a fair amount of it was very unfamiliar but it was (mostly) delicious and a real culinary adventure!
The rest of the group was the best ever (this was my fourth retreat with Jools) a wonderful group of people who threw themselves into the retreat with gusto and everyone got on like a house on fire. Thanks to everyone for making it so special to me and especially to Jools and Emma, I really admire you. See you all soon. Will be booking another one soon.

Not sure where to start … The experience has been so transformative that our hearts are still in our Mongolian camp 10 days after being back in London. Jools, Emma and Bettina are the Holy Trinity of retreats – each one striving and achieving being the best in their field. They were the glue that held all our wonderful experiences firmly together and gave us the opportunity to relax and be adventurous. That said, Mongolia is just the most beautiful country with the most wonderful, hospitable and inspiring people. We felt so privileged to be able to meet them and get to experience a less wasteful and gentler way of living. The scenery is remote and other-worldly – this combined with digital detox, Bettina’s incredible vegan menu and Emma’s daily enlightening classes were a gift which we will cherish forever. Thank you Jools for taking the less travelled path to offer us this opportunity.

This was an unforgettable experience had with incredible people. Jools, Emma, Bettina and Elodie took great care supporting us in Mongolia, while making us feel welcome and connected. I travelled to Mongolia alone but didn’t feel lonely at all on this trip and it’s credit to the wonderful people who put heart and soul organizing it. This country and the people in it are beautiful and so wonderful. I highly recommend it to all who love a good adventure and yoga! I learned so much.
