YOGA AND MEDITATION RETREAT THAILAND

Our stressful and sedentary lifestyles create risk of disease in our modern lives. The corporate world of sitting in front of computers for long hours, often in offices with artificial light can dampen our senses and suppress our life force energy. During this time of rapid change and transformation in the world we live in, how is it possible to cultivate peace and harmony within ourselves?

 
Yoga Pocahontas Meditation Retreat is located in an idyllic destination on the beautiful island of Koh Samui, Thailand. This retreat is for those who look to bring peace, harmony and serenity to their lives and reconnect with themselves and nature. Nature is a powerful source of healing, regeneration and insight. During the retreat we will learn to travel deeper into our senses and enjoy the different outdoor activities in the paradise island of Koh Samui, Thailand.   Take this opportunity to travel with us to new destinations and discover unknown depths within yourself.  It’s your true nature to be healthy, balanced and happy. During this retreat you learn how yoga, meditation and nature can help you to connect with yourself, re-balance body and mind and increase your self-awareness to live a healthy and happy life.
 
We practice yoga two times a day in different styles: Hatha, Ashtanga and Vinyasa.  Our teaching approach is a balanced mix of strengthening your body and creating more flexibility. The yoga classes are suitable for beginners and advanced students. We teach several mediation techniques including Vipassana, Chakra-Balancing, Walking, Dynamic, Nature, Mantras, Analytical Buddhist meditation. You will learn and begin your own self-practice through the most suitable meditation for you. These techniques will allow your mind to experience an oasis of peace and love within your heart and mind.
 
The morning yoga and meditation classes will be held at Vikasa Yoga & Retreat. Our meditation and yoga classes will be held at an open studio overlooking the clear blue waters of the Gulf of Thailand. In the afternoon you will be travelling to our favorite secret spots on Koh Samui. It’s your time to take the next step to practice and reconnect in nature.   By combining the yoga and meditation program with healthy food options you will enjoy a much deeper sense of connection and stillness between your body and soul.
