All levels will be catered for whether you have a regular practice, dabbled a little or only thought about trying yoga. Each individual will be given the support and attention you need whether completely new to the mat or a regular practitioner. Love Food & Yoga retreats focus on how to enjoy yoga practices and how to use them intelligently to support your life. We’ll go back to basics, tuning in to the breath and moving the body with focus and flow in the mornings, and winding down the day with restorative and deep relaxation in the afternoons.
You will learn a basic Ashtanga-based yoga practice, or have the opportunity take your regular practice even deeper, with the focus being on practicing with awareness and intelligence. Each class will build on the previous to help you, over the course of the week, develop a self-practice you can take home with you. You will also learn some basic breath work and mindfulness techniques to calm the mind and nervous system.
Love Food & Yoga workshops in the afternoon are designed to educate on how to enjoy food intelligently and how to eat for your own body type, climate and season, based on the principles of Ayurveda. You will discover how to enhance your energy through food that suits your own body type. You will get to enjoy the healthy, delicious food on the buffet at Samahita Retreat buffet, where great emphasis is placed on the importance of food. It serves a dual purpose of healthily nourishing the body and mind while also delighting the senses through great taste and variation.
The retreat also includes optional excursions to the local night markets for shopping and street food, and a boat tour of the outlying islands. There will also be plenty of time for relaxing and exploring the beaches and cultural highlights of Koh Samui.
