Ashtanga Yoga & Meditation Retreat
3 – 10 Feb, 2018
Pricing: Starting from $1095 USD
A Journey into Daily Sadhana
This yoga retreat is a journey into daily spiritual practice.
We will begin the retreat with an introduction meeting where you will get to know other like-minded yogis, as well as instructors, Kathleen Kastner and Wade Mortenson.
We will start each morning with a sunrise pranayama and meditation practice, followed by an Ashtanga Mysore practice in the beautiful outdoor shala.
ALL LEVELS are welcome and encouraged to work at their own pace. Your body mind and spirit will be bathed with the sounds and beauty of nature, the ocean and fresh air.
We will enjoy a delicious and healthy brunch after practice. Vegetarian and vegan food are available.
Our days will be spent exploring the mystical island of Koh Samui with exciting group excursions, like sacred temple tours, jungle hikes, sailing and snorkeling in the warm waters.
In your down time, you can experience a nourishing thai massage or other spa treatment, read, journal, or relax on the beach soaking up the sunshine and the positive energy from the ocean.
In the evening before bed, we will meet up for a meditation practice under the magic of the Koh Samui moon to help prepare for a peaceful night’s sleep.
