About

Sonder. Type: Noun. Meaning: the realisation that each passerby has a life as vivid and complex as your own.

Sonder Yoga Retreats & Trainings was created with one idea in mind: to offer affordable yoga retreats, teacher trainings, immersions and seasonal yoga events. Anais Alvarado founded this company drawing from her experience running yoga studios and her own retreats, as well as those supported by other experienced teachers. It offers an alternative to anyone looking to deepen their yoga training or just take a break from their hectic day to day, without breaking the bank.

Our retreat venues are carefully selected, and we ensure there’s something for everyone. We often go back to the same venues because we just love them so much! We aim to offer a comfortable space, with lots of optional activities, spacious yoga rooms, and delicious local food. We welcome everyone to our retreats, no matter your age, level of experience, gender or size. We just want to do everything we can to help you unwind and recharge.

Our yoga trainings are devised by some of the best teachers in the UK and Europe. With a broad syllabus, interesting content and an up-to-date approach, we aim to help teachers find their own voice and stand out doing what they love. In 2020 we began to offer Further Trainings for teachers, ranging from Yin Yoga trainings, to full 300hr programs divided in 3 independent modules. And we aim to offer these every year. 

For those who don’t have time to go on a retreat and aren’t quite interested in becoming yoga teachers, but love the practice, we have a wide variety of one-day trainings and day retreats where you will be able to disconnect from your fast-paced week and take some time for yourself, to learn something new.

Namaste!

Yoga believes in transforming the individuals before transforming the world. Whatever change we want to  happen outside should happen within.
