Slow down in Hualien
Hualien, nestled on Taiwan’s East Coast, is best known as the gateway to the incredible Taroko Gorge. With glistening lakes, beautiful beaches, epic hiking trails, rice terraces and bustling night markets, Hualien is our destination of choice for our next yoga holiday.
Hosting us is CHU Resort, a retreat centre cum spa resort rarely seen in Taiwan. People are drawn there for the onsen, fresh air, slow living, fresh local produce and wooded trails for hiking or cycling.
Over 4 days and 3 nights, give yourself permission to slow down. Take a break from the hustle and bustle and immerse yourself in a different pace of life, smell the flowers, sip your tea. Just allow nature to nurture you, along with healthy eating and mindful movement practices. All are welcome, yogis and non-yogis.

Li Ling, who will be your guide on this yoga holiday, recognises that she is in a different phase of her life. One where her yoga practice is more about going inwards, about honouring where her physical body is at right now, and one where her headspace is bouncing between acceptance and reluctance. She will attempt to share some tools on how she is coping with all the changes through breathwork, through shifting perspectives, and, slowing down. More on her here.
