CHILL’ASANA YOGA & FITNESS RETREAT
Start 2018 on a healthy kick!
29 Dec, 2017 – 5 Jan, 2018
Prices from: $1450 USD
Kick start your new year with some self-care focusing on your wellness and fitness! Join the Chill’Asana Team on the idyllic island of Koh Samui, Thailand, at a breathtaking oceanfront resort with activities designed to help you disconnect from the stresses of your life and reconnect to yourself and your body. Clear out the holiday stress and start the year with an amazing week of yoga, fitness, martial arts, nutrition, relaxation and adventure on one of the world’s most beautiful islands. The eco conscious Vikasa Yoga Center is built right onto cliffs overlooking the ocean offering breathtaking views of the water and an opportunity to rediscover nature.
Chill in the infinity pool overlooking the ocean, read in a hammock by your accommodations, take a surfing lesson, enjoy off-site adventure excursions or kick back as much as you like – make it your ideal vacation! We’ll have a Vinyasa yoga class every morning, fitness workshops using a variety of bodyweight movements and resistance training, martial arts workshops as well as education on nutrition and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Several optional group excursions will be offered, leaving the rest of the time for you to make new friends, unplug and reconnect.
Our retreats aim to inspire personal growth and supportive community while focusing on movement practices that connect and challenge the body and mind. We will practice in the open air of the ocean-view yoga shala, hike down to our own private beach, take part in interpersonal activities and develop a supportive community of friends on a truly rustic adventure that will reconnect you with yourself and with nature.
We welcome all levels of experience. You don’t need to be a yogi, a fitness buff or a martial artist- you just need to be a human being interested in learning, exploring, growing and getting your movement on! Basic familiarity with yoga is recommended but not required.

Nathania Stambouli (Retreat Leader & Yoga Instructor) – Coming from a background in fitness and circuit training, Nathania stumbled into yoga by accident in 2009 and what started as a purely physical adventure became a journey towards healing old wounds and experiencing a profound personal transformation. Through a dedicated yoga practice and a Master’s degree in Psychology, Nat unearthed a passion for helping others transform their lives, free themselves from negative behavior patterns and dare to be unapologetically real. She believes that yoga – and a healthy mind-body connection – is a gateway to self-love and understanding. Her classes are athletic and fluid, creatively sequenced and sprinkled with playful arm balances and transitions. Expect to be inspired and to learn to laugh at yourself. Expect to discover how your time on the mat is a mirror for your life and an invaluable tool to help you become your own best supporter. Nathania owns and operates SoulPlay Yoga, a yoga studio in Culver City, California and has run multiple international retreats with the Chill’Asana Team.
Gary Leake (Retreat Leader, Fitness & Nutrition Nerd) – Jack of many trades, Gary began his career as a national champion bodybuilder in the 90s while simultaneously languishing away as a computer programmer and technology manager. To spice things up, he performed and ultimately went on to teach improv comedy in the 00’s. He then applied his knowledge and love of training and became a founding partner of the international fitness and nutrition company Metabolic Effect, leading multiple weekend seminars both nationally and internationally as well as online seminars and trainings in fitness, fat loss, nutrition and mindset. During these 20-odd years, Gary discovered that these two worlds are not as unrelated as they may seem on the surface. The ability to stretch (both your mind and muscle), see perceived failures and mistakes as opportunities for success, the ability to laugh at yourself and to always be learning are just a few of the key skills that Gary imparts on his students and peers. Not only will you learn how to workout in the most effective manner for every situation you may find yourself in in life, but you will also learn how to progress and regress workouts to your needs, and learn about the power of the mind-muscle connections running through your body. www.garyleake.com
