Madison WI – – May 16, 2019 – – Trek Travel has partnered with Yogascapes to debut new wellness vacations in Palm Springs and Portugal that weave cycling adventures with rise and shine yoga classes, pre- & post-ride recovery stretches, myofascial release and more.
Yogascapes – the leader in wellness retreats – has curated a small team of wellness experts around the world to lead these handcrafted adventures alongside Trek Travel’s experiential team. Local instructors in each region are handpicked to create a transformative experience.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Yogascapes,” says Trek Travel president Tania Burke. “These trips promise to be incredible experiences that leave you energized and restored all at once.”
